  • if they're gonna win the 2004 Presidential election.

    The senator from our state (John Edwards - (D) NC) is mentioned as a candidate and it personally makes me sick to think he could be President - he was one of those slick trial lawyers that basically smooth-talked the NC folk his way into office. He hasn't even been re-elected (but I'm sure that won't be any problem) and they're pushing him for President?

    Every once in a while, I think of running for office myself, just to establish a separate political party not Republican ... not Democrat ... I'd like to call it Idealist, getting to practical and real solutions to the problems we face, which are mostly involving money.

    Social Security in a bind? Rip it down, spit it out and stop the program if we can't do it right. It's just not fair to ask today's employees to pay for today's retirees and not expect any of that money themselves.

    Campaign Finance Reform? Let's stop ALL "funny money" or donations to a political campaign and enforce common promotional packages to all candidates (all media must provide candidates with free X-number of 30 second spots or X-number of half-page ads within the proper region [State representative - district-wide, US representative - state-wide/district-wide, and President - national]). All ads should be non-slandering/factual and such. And cap the salary of representatives.

    I got more, but I gotta run to work now. These would be ideal solutions in an ideal world, imo ... maybe we just need leadership to get us there.

    Purdy for President in 2020! ;)
