If you're up for something that drastic vote for Ron Paul or even Ralph Nader. It's true the only way to fix a broken system is to destroy it and start fresh, but you have to come to terms with nobody wanting that.
    Well I'm not 100percent on board with everything Ron Paul says, but in terms of basic ideology and philosophic approach he's light years ahead of everyone else. Even he knows some of his idealized views (dissolving the dept of education etc) are not going to happen.

    So Paul wants to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan, "avoid foreign entanglements" as Washington put it, return federal power to the states, audit/limit the federal reserve, apply sound money Austrian school principles to US fiscal/monetary policy, and give deference to, and derive guidance from, the US Constitution first and foremost. Despite his stump speeches, Obama still has us in Iraq and he actually RAISED troop deployment in Afghanistan. I firmly believe Paul would have us GTFO of the middle east asap, unlike Obama. None of those things would have us riding donkeys. The US military industrial complex wouldn't be too happy... but that's too bad.

    So no, he's not the ideological messiah, but he's a damn lot closer than Bush or Obama or Clinton or even Reagan to me. He doesn't have a snowballs chance in hell though.

    But people are always comparing her to Obama even now, as if she had been the one to run for president. I see it time and again in threads saying how they are glad Obama won.. as if there never was a McCain in the picture.

    Hell I even did it myself earlier in the thread. The more apt comparison would be McCain to Obama or Palin to Biden. I wouldn't feel happy with her as prez, but Biden would anger me as well.

    Probably worse, but she'd screw up in different ways than Obama is doing. She seemed to do fine running Alaska. She had more executive experience than Obama, McCain, Biden or Hillary. None of those people had ANY experience running an executive branch of government.

    Hear hear! I concur completely.

    Sometimes, the History Channel has a gem amidst a sea of shit. Their documentary on the Berlin wall was good, their "Rise of Great Powers" (Forgot the actual name, but it was about the rise of China) was also good. And there are some others which are good, but I forgot the names of.

    THEN you get shit like "The Nostradamus Effect", "UFO Hunters", "Monster Quest", which makes me facepalm and want to strangle the guys who thought it was a good idea to put that shit on cable in the first place. But then again, I just change the channel.

    The Discovery Channel is a mixed bag as well. There's a neat show hosted by William B. Davis (The "Cigarette Smoking Man" from the X-Files) called Skeptical Eye or something (Not to be confused with Skeptical Inquirer, the magazine), which is decent. But then again, for every intelligent show on the Discovery Channel, there's "Ghosthunters", "Haunted", "Stupid Bullshit 101", "Oh-my-god-I-cannot-believe-they-put-this-shit-on-TV". So much so, I simply refuse to watch the Discovery channel anymore.

    Oh well, at least I still have BBC Knowledge.

    Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

    Here in SA we get NG, TDC and THC. And, sure as shit, hardly a scrap of sound science between them... <sigh>

    You mean the kind of executive experience where she had to hire an executive assistant to do her job as the mayor of a town of 5500 people?

    if Sarah Palin becomes the president of the United States of America we would all be fucked, she would probably nuke Russia, take back Georgia thinking its an american state that the Russians stole.. then invade France because they didnt support out invasion of Iraq.

    I have definitely noticed this as well. Most of their programs nowadays are complete skeptical crap (UFO hunters, Mysteryquest, Monsterquest, etc). I've noticed a bunch of programs attempting to reach out to the Christian population by attempting to apply science to biblical stories and myths and shit. It's annoying as fuck.

    The only worthwhile show I've seen on history in a while is The Universe. Why is that even on the history channel? lol.

    EDIT: I wrote all of this before I even read Rabbi Satan's post... Glad to see lot sof people are seeing the same thing as me.

    Spin it any way you want it - she had more executive experience than any of them. While Obama, McCain, and Clinton were senators, she was overseeing an entire state.

    All this talk of her attacking Russia and and other such nonsense is pure ideological delusion. I'm not a fan of hers per se, but people need to get a grip.

    "All this talk of her attacking Russia and and other such nonsense is pure ideological delusion."

    Agree. We can only thank the Goddess that she hasn't been accused of being a Muslim, a Socialist/communist, too intelligent, or not born in the US...that would be too low even for US politics...

    ...a state with 19 people in it, and how well was she overseeing that state when she had to resign due to the filing of ethics complaints as for a while there her teenage daughter's baby's daddy was on Entertainment Tonight as often as she was on the Glenn Beck show. If quitting on your state while your family becomes an internationally televised circus (a forum she's hardly shied away from) ...if that constitutes more executive experience than someone who left his 12 years in the state senate due to being elected to the US Senate which he in turn left to become the Fucking President Of The Country...


    I forget what I was saying but Palin has more place next to Kate Goselin on Dancing With the Stars than being anywhere near Congress or The White House.

    Sorry for the cheap indignation... I know it's an easy rant to make, but seriously...

    Talk about "spinning it any way you want". Running the 4th smallest state in terms of population size and the smallest in population density with 65% of the land owned and managed by government much of which are national parks and wildlife refuges hardly gives her "executive experience" especially since QUITTING after less than 2 years.

    So uh yeah, you can claim she has "more executive experience" but she couldn't even handle Alaska, you expect people to believe she can run the nation?
