50. Voting for Nader as protest in 2000 got one Bush. It didn't have to be that way.

 

but many just didn't give a 'uck that year and said what is the difference

because they were browbeaten a million times that neither was different, so why should they bother, and then blame the 5 week later SCOTUS rule, so as not to have to blame themselves.

Never again.

and in a perfect world, no one would die from warfare, but we don't live in a perfect world

and we live in a whole world, so we cannot isolate ourselves, though some would want to.

life isn't perfect, neither am I. Sorry to disappoint those that thought I was.

10% betterment, is better than 100% of nothing no matter how it is parsed, in the hope that one day those 10% add up to 100%, but it never will.
So something is better than nothing.

In a way, President Obama is like Jackie Robinson.
Others could have been before Jackie, but Jackie had what it took to do it and not be sidetracked into not attaining it in the first place.

The others prior led the way and without them, there would not have been.
But being the first needs someone who can win, to get there.

(which is why Hillary45 is the best bet for 2016 to be the first woman President.
Some might say this person or that one is better, but Hillary has what it takes in 2016 to do it.
(Off topic I know).
