I haven't had much to say lately because I am totally disgusted with politics and I have been very busy with other things.

It wasn't enough that we had the presidential campaign inflicted upon us a year early, we have also had to listen to the blatherings of the worst candidates I have ever seen. Democrats and Republicans have really scraped the bottom of the barrel this time.

Every one of the candidates are mouthing platitudes that they think the voting public will fall for in droves and they seem totally oblivious to the fact that their contradictory statements will follow them around. The best example I can think of is Hillary's statement on drivers liscences in New York but she isn't the only one. They all are lying about one thing or another and the lies are catching up to them faster than ever before.

The Republicans candidates are competing with each other about who is the most conservative and the Democrats are beating each other over the head about who voted how on the Iraq war.
Neither group is addressing the real issues that lie over the horizon. They are concentrating on NOW issues that probably shouldn't even be an issue.

I want to know what the candidates are going to do about illegal immigration, what energy policies they will adopt, how they will address terrorism, what economic policies they will adopt to balance the trade deficit, how they will deal with the UN, what will they do about Iran and the list goes on. The candidates have only talked in very broad generalities on these subjects so far but I have no confidence they have any specific ideas or approaches to them.

I wish some Dark Horse would come along who has a real agenda and who has the ability to put it together in a honest, straightforward way. The current candidates are all over the place with their promises and none of them really believe what they are saying.
