Poor Candidates For the US

With Rudy Guiliani slipping further in the polls and Hillary Clinton winning every primary in the US minus Iowa, the US election at the end of this year is shaping up to be one of the worst yet:

-The Republican nomination is a toss up between Mike Huckabee, an evangelist who promises to deliver America back to the time when Christianity was taught as the true religion and to give in to God, Mitt Romney, a mormon who thinks he did wonders for Massachusetts (the most socialist state in the Eastern US), and John McCain, who continually votes for bigger, more intrusive government and one of few senators to vote against the Bush tax cuts TWICE. McCain won the South Carolina seat, which almost always determines who gets the nomination.

-Hillary Clinton, self-described "government junkie" and all round totalitarian collectivist worshiper has won all primaries minus Iowa for the Democrat nomination, and shows no sign of abating. One of her principles, "there's no such thing as other people's children" is far removed from the true American principles of the founding fathers.

-Guiliani's policy of appealing to the states further down hasn't worked, and his consistent showing of 4th or 5th place in most state's polls won't help come Super Tuesday, when 20 states vote.

So, whoever gets the Republican vote may be just as bad as Hillary, or worse. Once again, a less-of-two-evils campaign. In which case, it may simply be best just to vote for the Libertarian Party after all.
