    The major frustration with congress is that the "leaders" are running far behind the public on all of the issues and while they try to play their political games, the American people are ready to dump all of them on the trash heap.  

    The problem with the democratic leadership is that they are trying to run as republican lite.  Centrists, which means they don't have any strong principles and will be swayed for what they wrongly perceive as "political capital".  They are as stupid in this belief as George Bush.  America is tired of all of this.  The only principle that the republicans have is greed, and the democrats have none at all.

    What we need desperately now is another Roosevelt, someone who is brave enough to take chances for the principles that he believes in.  

    James Dobson said the other day, he would not compromise his principles by voting for Guiliani, simply because he is being told he is electable.  I don't agree with James Dobson on 99.9% of anything, but on this he is right.  Now is the time to stand on our principles and not compromise ourselves to destruction.
