We hire/vote for actor's what to we expect?

It's kind of a marketing thing.
NLP actor's are good a modeling masses.

Any way Ralph and Ron are some of the most consistent truth tellers ever in America, and only what 10% get it.

Once again it doesn't matter who gets in office, except for maybe the two guys and not happening this life time now. :-(

It's about money. MONEY MONEY honesty and truth left decades ago.

I am getting better vibes off Ron's son
People do get better. and change.
but don't hold hope for OBAMA
He is going to be like Regan his kids will show respect but, dodge anything that sound's like dad did a good job.

But watch and share the Lester-land deal after watching that.. you may have a better understanding of why the elections don't change a thing for the little guys.

Just want what seems to be missing, Truth and Justice for ALL
What is fraud except creating “value” from nothing and passing it off as something?

Well, no, duh.

But, er... I'm confused, though:

Why you ask, btw?


"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

I love you....

Ralph Nader. The first politician that I related to. Even though I have moved on to bigger and better politicians(Ron Paul) I hold a special place in my heart for you!

i grew up in Connecticut

and I remember thinking Nader's Raiders were so cool.

Nader is from Litchfield, CT -- the northwest corner of Connecticut - that was the crunchy nutty, great outdoors, where people wore L.L.Bean or dressed like hippies.

The last time I saw Nader and spoke to him was in 2000. I was stopped at a traffic light on Connecticut Ave in the Adams Morgan section of D.C.
Nader was crossing in the cross walk right in front of my car (he hates cars) == It was a beautiful spring day.
I said, "Hey Ralph!" He was deep in some thought so it took a few seconds... He gave me a big smile -- looked like Abraham Lincoln -- sort of slightly bent over and a little craggy but tall.

He didn't need to say a word but he did and he tilted his head and winked. That was 13 years ago - I remember it like it was yesterday.


Obama said "It could mean the difference between groceries or the food bank, rent or eviction, scraping by or finally getting ahead"

$1.75 per hour is going to let people "get ahead"?


Richard Milhouse Nixon paved the way for our financial demise with this "temporary" statement on monetary stability:


"One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas" Victor Hugo


Part of that, however, is a testament to how good of a speaker Obama is. It's just really disturbing how slick these people are. And how in the world do these people live with themselves when they see what they're doing to millions upon millions of people? Clearly they have no conscience.

Conscience shows with aging

It's interesting to me to see the faces of older primates. Those who have taken evil actions show it in increased wear; those who have taken good actions are surprisingly better for the wear.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

One thing I don't understand

is why so many people, even people who openly hate the guy, call him a good speaker. Maybe it's just me, but I knew he was full of it from the moment I heard him open his mouth (though to be fair, I assume that about every politician).

To me, he talks like he knows that others know he's full of shit, but just keeps on going through the motions for the sake of whatever 'true believers' he has left.
