Village re-elects dead mayor

BUCHAREST (Reuters) - The residents of a Romanian village knowingly voted in a dead man as their mayor in Sunday's municipal election, preferring him to his living opponent.

This headline jumped out at me a few days ago. Did you watch the debates? Who will you vote for? Are you, like me voting not so much FOR someone as voting AGAINST someone else?




I am thinking what we really need is a leader who is with vision. Some who has moral values and practical sense. We need some who is realistic and shoots from the hip. A leader who pulls no punches and does what is right, not what is popular or pleases a fringe group.


But who?



A couple nights ago PBS broadcast a two and a half hour program profiling the very man we need in Washington.

Ronald Reagan.

But he's gone you say! Well if a village can elect a deceased mayor then why can't we do the same for the most powerful office in our nation?

Even in his condition he'd surely do a better job than most of our current crop of choices. We need a man who will ask himself daily..."What would Reagan do?"

This amused me. xD

Anyways. There probably is a difference between Ukrainian Russian and Russian Russian. I mean, Ukrainian is a totally different language. But I guess Ukrainians might speak Russian different than Russians do. Odessans have their own special Russian, they say. So do um...Lvovans? Some city that starts with an L.......

*crickets*

Well bye!
