    The Democratic Party and the Obama campaign has taught us this year one thing.

    We found out some of us are more Republican than Democrat.

    Being involved in the political process. For the second time in my life I am proud to be an American. The first time was with Pres. John Kennedy. I so wished my brothers and sisters all veterans had lived to see this day.

    Sound bites trump substance. This exercise further confirms CNN's acquiescence.

    Decades of disappointments, false promises, waste, self-serving attitudes, detachment, remorse, disenfranchised......all come to mind.

    Lately politics has been a show of total lack of integrity, abusing Lawyer Truth. Politicians, with a few exceptions, do not listen to the public but to their special interest, especially the Unions and enviromental extremist. Look at Obama who voted Liberal but is trying to convince people he is really a centrist. Anything to get elected. McCain is a proven "Maverick",
