I am amazed at how so many "Left-thinking people" who belong to the forum and email me mention that we have a large "Right-Winged" group here, yet these same people who complain NEVER seem to post their views and opinions - I often wonder if their points are arguable? No one is surpressed here, keep it friendly and all views can be written. I believe though that MANY beekeepers have at least a "middle of the road" to "right leaning" view of things - I say this just believing it comes with the hobby of beekeeping. If you go to another forum where the HEARTLAND of the STATES are less represented, then you likely would see different distributions of member's beliefs.
I just feel that in the case of George W. Bush, the country was looking for Conservative thinking, but got a blooming idiot for their vote, even though I still firmly believe Al Gore was ripped off from being President - Now in a means of over correcting the vote went SEEMINGLY to the far left, but I think it just came down to a case of which candidate is the LESSER OF TWO EVILS, rather than THE EVIL OF TWO LESSERS - could we have again made that mistake? It was hard for the Republicans to separate their candidate this time around from the flaws of old-school republicanism. I don't know anyone personally who is hardlined, and doesn't disagree on some issues - no matter what party they affiliate with. But that is an issue to issue basis, nothing that would deter them from their core beliefs.
I just wish Obama would knock off the weekly primetime news conferences, everytime he holds one, saying everything is gloom and doom (at least in the short term) the market drops hundreds of points. Why can't he just do what every other President has done and keep us in the dark, because if you can't show us the light at the end of the tunnel, then you are only showing us darkness.
Then getting rid of GMs President dumped the market again in the toilet like a teabag in a cup of hot water, we dish out all this money, then put rediculous time restraints on it which can never be made. You can't take a problem that took years to make, give it money, not even enough in most cases to clear the debt, and expect to see a turn around. I think we are seeing the end of the American Car Company - luck for us, many foreign companies have US based facilities or we would be out of the car building business altogether. I only say lucky for us because of the massive jobs it creates, if we lost foreign business too, unemployment would be catistrophic.
I don't think anyone wishes this administration gloom and doom in their achievements, not when everything they do directly affects each and every one of us - that is cutting your own hand off I believe. Historically speaking though, I still believe it is in our contries behalf to have a more conservative based union - every ten years a new generation of humans come of age and see the leadership flip-flop from ultra left to ultra right and back again, you wonder why we can't get the youth to vote, just when they start to get a grasp on how politics work, the teams change.
