Oddities of democracy
 
Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, or some other flavor, does it concern you that 4 of the leading candidates for the president of the United Staes (namely Governor Howard Dean, Sen John Kerry, Sen Joseph Lieberman and, of course, George W. Bush) are members of the Skull & Bones secret society?

It looks like there's a very high probability that the president will be a Bonesman, whichever party wins. When you consider that there are only about 800 living members of this society, this situation seems kind of statistically improbable.

What's going on here?

What I find frightening is that many members of congress and the President are millionaires. How can people so rich (and so arrogant) possibly understand what the common man (like myself) experience every day?

What I find amazing, is that people actually think the President and Congress run this country.

I wish to state that I am not now, and have never been, a member of the Democratic or Republican parties of the United States of America.
