    It is funny watching all of you bitching and fighting over who is going to reign over them. The idea that a father figure, backed by 535 misfits can adequately represent you and solve your problems is most amusing.

    However, Americans always need a hero. The idea that they can take after themselves without a rent seeking politician looking over them is a delusional.

    I painfully laugh at people who look forward to voting in the next daddy-figure to solve, not only their problems, but the nation's and world's problems.

    When this promise doesn't come to a fruition, they will bitch and moan on a message on how their guy was not at fault and they other sucks more.

    I vote for the people who promise to get out of our way and let us deal with our own problems.

    Unfortunately, I've been disappointed with most of them.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but REAL Americans want the government to LEAVE US ALONE, get the hell out of our way, and stop stifling our productivity, our creativity, and our ability and desire to take care of ourselves!

    No. I just considering putting myself, my family, and friends at serious risk of bodily harm as a foolish thing to do.
