    Watching the debates has been riveting but depressing Rosema. It seems politics both sides of the Atlantic has descended into the gutter. Thanks for taking time out to read and comment.

Maybe you should send in the clowns for us in November, Davy–we’re going to need some relief, seriously…I may have to be medicated to deal with the results. Best to you always–I never felt the need for support from England so greatly 🙂

The two contenders don’t give us much hope. It is terrifying to think of either of them being the leader of this country.
However, I learned yesterday of a candidate that I had never heard of before and he offers much hope. Maybe that is why he hasn’t gotten the press coverage that the two “big ones” have. His banner is in my sidebar.
Now, if I could just figure out how to do a write-in on the bloomin’ computer voting machines, that would be great.

Short, sweet, and to the point. I like it. My family actually gets into screaming about this election (so I do my writing outside the house to avoid it–haven’t watched t.v. in a month, either). I can’t seem to get it through their heads that what’s making me angry is how our “leaders” are like the bottom of the barrel. I need a new research project: in less than 300 years, how did we get from the leadership of Washington, Adams, Jefferson…to this? Ugh, I need coffee to get through this…too early for Bailey’s.

    It is painful to watch from the UK so I don’t know what it must be like to live it. It seems to be the battle for President is the person who has the least dirt attached to them. It is the same now in UK politics. Thanks for taking time out to read and provide a very insightful comment to the conversation. Best of British 🙂
