Another Polling Point poll today. They still can’t figure out that politics, like reality itself, isn’t confined to a single plane of opinion. Left/Right, Liberal/Conservative definitions of political views will only serve to keep the citizens at each others throats. If you can narrow the range of opinion down to two valid views, then everyone who doesn’t agree with you is wrong, obviously.
The “Who would you vote for as President” questions were at least not a total waste of time. Given a range of 5 options, including other and not voting, they asked us to pick which candidate we would vote for contrasting first Barak Obama and John McCain, and then Hillary Clinton and John McCain.
My choice, in both instances? Mary Ruwart. I might feel a bit of ambivalence about Barack Obama and his goals for the presidency; but ambivalence isn’t informed opinion. I’ve read enough of Ms. Ruwart’s writings to know she would make a better candidate than any of the chosen front runners.
Neither Hillary Clinton or John McCain can be trusted to run the country; their behavior in the campaigns so far has proven this.
And while I’m a supporter of Ron Paul, I can’t see the Republicans giving him the nomination over McCain, no matter how much the conservatives within the party despise McCain. Dr. Paul has stated repeatedly that he has no intention of running as a third party candidate.
So it’s Mary Ruwart for President, hands down.
