The More Things Change ...

The more things change ... the more they remain the same.

Both candidates for president are U.S. Senators.

Look at the track record of the U.S. Congress (both houses).

Look at the criminal behavior both Houses apparently approve.

Both have addressed La Raza, speaking volumes about their perception of America and Americans.

Both co-sponsored S. 774, which would have granted amnesty to illegal aliens.

Both co-sponsored S. 280, which would establish a cap and trade program for greenhouse gases.

Both waffle on "the war in [fill in the blank; currently in vogue: Iraq]."

Both waffle on domestically-supplied energy and making it available like, YESTERDAY.

Both waffle on everything from soup to nuts. Unless and until honesty and being unable to be bought at any price become requirements for political office -- we will have leaders that do not lead and voters with the knowledge that they, themselves, could and would do a better job.

No president of any country should be so much like a chameleon that there's little difference.

There is no choice. Both national parties are interchangeable, leaving voters one option: "None of the above.

P.S. - Inspired by Bob St. Louis, one of the good guys! The moral of this story: Never trust a waffler: "It's awful to waffle."

Julie Kay Smithson is a property rights researcher in rural Ohio's Amish/Mennonite farm country. She is quietly proud to follow in the footprints left by America's greatest Americans, from the Founding Fathers to Helen [Nichols] Chenoweth-Hage.
