Bear Ridge Project Candidate Guide

Here is the official Bear Ridge Project Candidate Guide.

Rudy Giuliani (63)

He is the 911 candidate. Crime was reduced in New York during his term as mayor but it was already trending downward before he took office. His approach to crime prevention was to run out the homeless then treat the city like a big prison camp. It worked but is that the America we want to live in?

Rudy is the Neo-Conservative dream candidate not only would he increase the money flow to the military/industrial complex but he would have no problem stripping American rights in favor of Homeland security. Fortunately for the American people the skeletons in his closet are numerous and actively trying to escape. Rudy is crazy as a loon and I personally cannot handle that twitch of his. He should drop out after the Florida primary.

Mitt Romney (60)

He just does not seem to have it together. If Mitt came to the house selling vacuum cleaners I’d make sure I hid the good silver before letting him in. Very slick and polished…a great businessman. Unfortunately government is not a business and I think he would be run over quickly.

Plus he supports torture and I cannot support anyone who condones this vile act.

Mike Huckabee (51)

Very likable, but anyone who advocates amending the Constitution to fit biblical law is out. I will not vote for a minister…the past 7 years having a false prophet in the White House was bad enough. I used to think that Governors made good Presidents but again the last 7 years has changed my mind. He would be stomped in the general election by any Democratic candidate…even Mike Gravel.

I see him running as McCain’s Vice President. This will help the Republicans bring out the Values Voters.

He also supports torture.

John McCain (71)

I really liked him in the 2000 Presidential race. He was a true middle of the road fiscal conservative who would not tolerate the Radical Fundamentalist Christian movement. This ultimately doomed him, after a through swift boating the anointed Bush was given the 2000 Republican nomination. His pandering to the far right of the party this time around has stripped him of that moral high ground.

Unfortunately time has not been good to him and I honestly feel after watching him in the debates that he is getting a little senile. Watch his answers during any interview, he cannot think on his feet anymore and gives the same strange canned responses to questions. McCain is a great American but time has dulled him and his Presidency would be a disaster.

Ron Paul (72)

His America is the America I want to live in. The Constitution is the framework that America is built around and Ron Paul believes in that framework. You don’t weaken the Constitution because it is convenient or because it will make your friends money. The Constitution is the road map for the government and it is the protection of the American people.

Due to the corporate elite that actually run this country he will not be the Republican nominee. His only chance would be as a third party candidate between Hillary and Rudy. He could take enough from both parties at that point to pull it off. Strange how he completely represents Republican ideals and they don’t want a thing to do with him.

We need more like Ron Paul!

John Edwards (54)

I really appreciate the way he is bring attention to working class issues and corporate abuses, this is what all the candidates should be focusing on. But I just can not get past the fake ear-to-ear smile and that nauseating southern drawl of his. He would make a great Attorney General but not a President.

Hillary Clinton (60)

She is the hand picked Bilderberg Group Presidential candidate. You can tell they are getting worried by the shrill tone their campaign has taken on in the past few weeks. I think Hillary would make a good President, but if you are wanting change you don’t go backwards. Her politics will be just like Bills and her administration would be even more divisive than the current one (if that possible).

If she becomes the Democratic nominee for President it will drive the Republican voters to the polls. And if she wins it will inflame the Republican base to a point not seen in years. I would easily see turning over Congress by 2010.

What is up with Bill? I used to admire him…as an orator and inspiring spokesman for the country. Now he just seems crazy, he makes me feel dirty.

Barack Obama (46)

Obama seems fairly genuine. He admits his mistakes and gives honest answers to questions. It would be a refreshing change of pace to have someone who kinda tells the truth in the oval office. His perceived lack of experience simply means that he has not sold his soul to the devil quite yet.

He would pull Independents from McCain and keep the Republican base at home. I think he is the best Democratic candidate.

Obvious Choice

If I were in charge of the election companies that actually select the President I would choose Ron Paul and if he wouldn’t take the job then Barack Obama.

By each name you put a number between 46-72. I am somewhat confused by it. It is an interesting race and I can name something I like about each candidate except Hillary Clinton. Also not Edwards but calling him a candidate at this stage is questionable.

I am not sure if I would rather have McCain or Romney. I will not vote for a democrat because I am against socialism and gun regulation.

I can honestly say the only candidate I would buy a used car from is John McCain...for whatever that is worth.

The number is their age. Ron Paul is really sharp for 72.

I agree with you about McCain and the used cars. My only fear is that he would get lost on the way to the dealership. I loved McCain but I really think he has lost it.

I can't vote for any Republican because they gave us Bush II. Personally I feel that out of shame all Republicans who voted for him should sit out this election and think about what they did.

In other words they need some quiet time to think about how absolutely fucked up the country is because of the Bush administrations policies.

Old Butch,

John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called 'pullets', and ten roosters, whose job it was to fertilize the eggs.

The farmer kept records and any rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of his time, so he bought a set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone so John could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.

The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch, a very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular morning John noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all! John went to investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

But to Farmer John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one. John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result...The judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece Prize but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.

Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making: who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.

Vote carefully...the bells are not always audible.

I'm with you on Ron Paul, but after doing a lot of research, I have too many questions about him. I admire his consistency and his views on the Constitution, and his views on what government should actually be, but I am not comfortable with the racial mess.

His newsletters in the past (80s and 90s) were extremely racist and homophobic. Paul has publicly taken responsibility for allowing them to be published, but says he did not write the articles in question. All well and good, but one thing he won't do is explain clearly and specifically who did and how/why he was associated with Ron Paul and whether that person or persons still is.

Based on my research, that person or persons still is associated with Ron Paul, and that's what bothers me. I think that if his campaign got truly serious, the other candidates would be able to rip him to shreds by exposing a lot of stuff that Paul chooses not to expose himself. This bothers me.

In the end, I have to vote my conscience, not who I think has the best chance of getting elected (Democrat or Republican). That means voting Libertarian. Even if some people see it as wasting my vote, I feel it is better to vote my conscience than it is to not vote at all.
