Don’t Let Apathy Win The 2008 Presidential Election
Staying current with what’s going on in Washington is important for obvious reasons. You have to know what’s happening to make you voice viable. Simply ranting to your congressmen or the president about what you father, mother or friend tells you are simply sharing your father, mother or friend’s voice; you’re still mute and trivial. And it’s easy to stay up date with current events on Capitol Hill. Visit “Best For The U.S.” Daily and get the latest, unbiased news. Take that news and let your congressmen know what you think and how you feel.

The most amusing part of the dialogue was that Gingrich insisted he had tried to refocus the Bush campaign, but to no avail. He told them to move away from attacking Kerry and address the issues and policy concerns. But no. No one listened to Gingrich. This brings me to a question. What makes him think anyone will listen to him if he throws prison reform organizations in a presidential bid? His complaint during the interview with Chris Wallace is that no one in his own party is listening to him.
Once again, we are caught in the distraction game, the “don’t pay attention to the man behind the curtain” and it works beautifully. No one has any reason to discuss issues when distractions are so very effective.
440,000 – If the federal government started right at this moment to repay the U.S. national debt at a rate of one dollar per second, it would take over 440,000 years to completely pay it off.
