    Think harder! ;) I'm hoping that we can find some common ground in both parties. The politician does not have to be from Congress.

    My favorite Republican is Rep. Aaron Schock (R - Peoria, IL) because it's only a matter of time before the bareback-fucked-in-the-ass-while-being-skull-fucked-by-a-big-uncut-latino-cock-and-with-meth-pipe-in-hand video is released...just before an election.

    Gurrrrl! Have you seen her espadrille collection???

    Sorry, Metta. The truth is that I can't think of a single Republican office-holder who doesn't make me want to throw up.

    Republican - Rand Paul

    Democrat - JFK

    Independent - not sure of any, but who would want Bernie Sanders?
    I do not understand how someone would vote for a socialist
    like him. Socialism does not work. Never has, Never will

    Republican: None currently. Barry Goldwater, a true elder statesman especially later in life.

    Democrat: Bill Clinton. I think he was one of the best Presidents ever, certainly in recent times.

    JFK

    Independent: Jesse Ventura (he's from MN as I am) a little crazy but good entertainment. I'd love to have a beer with him.

    Republican

    Dream Ticket: Glenn Beck/Rush Limbaugh so that the Republican masses can finally get what they think they want.

    The non-suicide option would be Jon Huntsman. His policies are exactly like Obama's but he's PURE WHITE so the majority who are unacknowledged racists in the Republican party will finally STFU.

    Democrats: Sen Sherrod Brown, Sen Mark Warner, Sen Tim Kaine. The key for me is that they have experience and yet be young enough for the energy of the job. Hillary is my second choice but I know she'll gather the people she needs to a better job than any Republican alternative.

    Independent: None exist no matter what they say.

    Sweden? Like I care

    RyanMatthew - many of the socialist lovers here either lie or make up crap out of ignorance. There are numerous articles on Sweden's move to the right.

    You're right about socialism not working except for voluntary examples such as the Kibbutzes in Israel. In countries it fails miserably when forced on people.

    National Review Online:

    In fact, contemporary Sweden is much less socialist than many Americans realize. Since the early 1990s, when it suffered a painful financial crisis, the Scandinavian country has deregulated key industries (such as airlines, telecommunications, and electricity), lowered its overall tax burden, established universal school vouchers, partially privatized its pension system, abolished certain government monopolies, sold a number of state-owned enterprises (including the parent company of Absolut vodka), and trimmed public spending. Several years ago, it eliminated gift and inheritance taxes. The World Economic Forum now ranks Sweden as the second-most competitive economy on earth, behind only Switzerland. According to the 2010 Index of Economic Freedom (compiled by the Wall Street Journal and the Heritage Foundation), Sweden offers greater business freedom, trade freedom, monetary freedom, investment freedom, financial freedom, freedom from corruption, and property-rights protection than does the United States.

    "In fact, contemporary Sweden is much less socialist than many Americans realize"


    In fact, American Progressives are centrists.

    The fearful and angry party of today's Republicans can no longer be considered conservative but outright bat-shit crazies who'd rather destroy our country rather than compromise on any issue. With all due respect.
