Politics Most Unusual
So far, the Sarah Palin pick by Sen. John McCain has not had the desired effect. If Palin does not draw women to the GOP for the 2008 presidential election, and McCain loses, it would appear that the ONLY issue for women is abortion. I find this surprising, but then again I was surprised that black women would support Obama over Hillary Clinton by 95%, rather than the something closer to 50/50
Since women make up more than half the population and voters in the U.S., and their ONLY issue is proved to be abortion, the GOP has some real, real problems - like actually existing.
The Democrats have a conundrum as well. If Obama wins, white men might not need apply for the Democratic presidential nomination. If every black man that runs automatically starts out with 20%+ of registered Democrats that are black, he is going to be awfully hard to beat. Believe me, Joe Biden, liberal Democrat, would become a fire breathing conservative Republican in the blink of an eye - if it meant he would get to set behind the desk in the Oval Office. What these guys REALLY want is to be called Mr. President. Each and everyone of them would compromise any and all of their beliefs to fulfill that ambition.
Accordingly, don't look for a rational political response to the coming Oil import shortages looming for the U.S. The parties in power are going to be too involved in their own survival to focus on your survival.
Yours for a better world,
