I have learned that I must be getting old. I see so many people about to make a mistake. Used to I just thought they were deciding between two qualified people. This year I see one qualified person and one that should be sent back to Chicago to study some more. He is not ready.

I've learned that if one party practically ruins the country, people are willing to elect a member of the other party even though they have practically ruined a state along with the thrid largest city in America.

LOL.....I've felt that way for a while now.

OK.....I have learned that there are a lot of ignorant people who believe anything the mainstream media has to say. And that anything a celebrity has to say must be important. This one really makes me laugh......people just don't get it.....if you're not liberal in Hollywood....you don't get a lot of work.

I've learned to quit posting anything logical on the political forum because no one wants to listen to reason.

I've learned that no matter who wins this election it will be an uphill battle for them.....I wish them luck. They're going to need it.

I've learned that I'm just not that cool.....geeze....and all these years I've never bought into the hype......I'm just an GDI....and proud of it.

Oh and whether he wins or loses......McCain gets my vote.

Just a side note- Are you seriously concerned because Obama's middle name is Hussain? Are you kidding me?
I've learned more Americans than I thought were spineless wimps eagerly wanting government to take care of them from cradle to grave.

5. If you make a political ad at Christmas, be sure to sit in front of a window so that the window panes look like a cross.
6. A bachelors degree in journalism from a second rate J-school can get you a lot farther than I ever imagined.
7. In Alaska, some people shoot wolves from helicopters.
8. People love to hear you say they're angry. But never say they're bitter.
9. Don't give speeches from the back of a pick up truck, and don't let your husband run your campaign.
10. Even a kid with a funny name and big ears can grow up to become President of the United States.

This is GREAT but they won't let me rep you again yet.

I learn that there are just too many idiots in our country.

They claim to make the right choice for president the last two elections, but he turn out to be a disaster both times.

With their terrible prediction record, they still expect ppl to believe their choice is right this time round.

I've learned that we all hate each other.

I wish I had an island out in the middle of the ocean I could get away to.

People worry too much about money. I'm concerned about national security more than anything.

That is a dream of mine. It doesn't even have to be an island; way out some place in the mountains or forests would work just as well.
