I mean, we're all interested in politics to some degree....or else we wouldn't be here.

But lately, I find myself getting burned out on it all....sick of it even.

Anyone else have "propaganda overload"?

Yep. I wish there was a law that said you couldn't even begin to campaign for political office until 6 months prior to the election. This shit has been going on for over 2 years. I'm sick of it.

No...this is the reason we are on here. And after the election is over we will have to go back to posting threads about birth certificates and Sarah Palin

I agree. I'm also starting to wish that DNCNBC and ConservaFoxNews should be forced to report straight up news without the political spin until 1 year before a major election.....6 months before a minor one.

Yes....I know....Freedom of Speech and all of that.

I'm sick of the political games. It would be different if the politicians of today weren't politicians, but public servants who took their responsibility seriously. It should be considered an honor, not a quest for power.

Why can't they uphold the constitution and stick to the principles we were founded on? It shouldn't be the way it is, with politicians pandering to special interest groups and making their own position of power their first priority.

We've let all of them get away with this for years. I'd like to send every damn one of them home and start again by putting people in Washington who aren't career politicians, but intelligent citizens who are only interested in serving their country for no more than 4 years.

I think there are some incredible people in this country who would be able to fix the mess we're in, but they won't run because they don't have millions of dollars and they aren't prepared to destroy their lives by being put through the grinder by the radicals from each side.

We've gotten away from our founder's vision and what has replaced it is a disgusting lot of greedy, power hungry critters that aren't fit to serve mankind.

If it were a matter of people laying out their ideas for the country in a clear, concise manner instead of attacking, it wouldn't be so difficult. But, they will continue to attack because there have been so many coverups and dirty deals that we have a right to know. It would seriously help if we had media who were interested in the truth rather than getting their guy in office.

Three weeks and it will be over. We will have a new President and then the real work begins.

Maobama has been campaigning for almost 6 years now, he has never gotten to the governing mode, he's left all the heavy lifting to his tzars. And yes the propaganda is gettig very old, but no matter how the election turns out, it will continue.
