nincompoop - nice word. I looked up its etymology and found even more great words:

From Latin non compos mentis ‎(“not of sound mind”).
Synonyms: (foolish person): dunderhead, fop, fool, imbecile, fuckwit

aha, ok :)

Funny thing about that is if he doesn't become President, many will be relieved, but not long after people will start to worry about the one in charge who did become it (perhaps even worse), a good politician seems to be a contradiction in terms.

In any way, when will you guys ever kill the whole Democrats vs Republicans thingy, just all be independents, and kill the lobbying perhaps? :PP:

Whoever wins, it's always in bad taste, corrupt, nothing to cheer about in my view.

I'm not concerned so much about who wins or what will happen after they do because so much is happening right now- Opium production is up so heroin overdoses are on the rise as well as gun related violence- But I do think having only two main parties as we do creates a lot of political polarization, which is nothing to cheer about..

There has never been more desire to have (someone voted in to be president that would bring about) a positive change
It started with (George Washington, in the beginning and now it is with Obama) me?. Who keeps doing the same thing and expecting different outcome?
Yeah, that's me. But, guess it takes a long time before the outcome will be different? So, do I abandon this conduct for something else?
Or, do I continue and wait for a change to happen.

Oh, wait, what were we talking about again?
Practice or voting for president??

Yeah we currently have all seats divided between 16 parties or fractions, not that we don't suffer from indecisions but that's because we don't have a clue what to do, it's not because we are boycotting each other due to party politics. It's the same here, they talk endlessly what needs to be done before the elections, but once elected it's indecision time, or making the wrong decision time, but I guess that's a global phenomena in every country.
