Primary Elections

Posted Monday, January 9, 2012, at 6:59 PM

What, if anything, have you learned from being bombarded with news from all of the Republican primary elections in Iowa, New Hampshire and soon South Carolina?

I'm already dreading the Democatic and Republican national primaries this year.

Perhaps I'm too bitter but I always get disgusted with seeing all of the delegates sent there to do serious business dressed up like they were going to a bad Halloween party and doing their best to get on national tv.

I always wonder if far too many of them have forgotten where the cocktail parties end and serious business begins.

Would America fare better if all cocktail parties were banned and replaced with prayer sessions?

I personnally get rather sick of all the crap that is lied about to the American people. These politicians need to get real. How do they propose to cut the number of people in congress and their pay when congress is the one that have to vote on these changes. Unless the President or President elect has the full support of

congress they are helpless to do anything they build their campaign on. God bless them all, they are pitiful.

after watching the debate I believe it is more of the same... nothing to get excited about and certainly nothing to vote for. It looks like another election of voting for the lesser of 2 evils.

I do not take much stock in their "prayers". I am all for prayer but when I hear a person one day saying "GOD told them" this or that and then in their next breath spew hate and lies I am disgusted. Anyone can use the name of our Lord, can say they attend service every Sunday, but it is the actions, words and everyday behavior that shows us. They say words are cheap, and when you put those words on to political elections they lose all value. They seem to forget The 10 Commandments" or at best pick and choose which they want to use to get them elected. They will get up there and go hog wild against their chosen "sin" and go spreading "false witness" attacks against their appointments. I wold love to see a candidate that was honest and honorable that we could actually trust and believe in them. Oh well dream on.
