By J.B. Williams

When fifty percent of the voting population no longer bothers to vote at all and the other fifty pecent wish they could find someone who truly deserves their vote for the first time in their lives, what’s your next trick? The answer seems to be, draft Fred Thompson - I’ll get to why in a minute. If you ask the 50% who quit voting years ago why they quit voting, they will be fast to tell you that their vote doesn’t matter because all modern politicians, no matter what political party they attach themselves to or what principles and policies they claim to hold dear, none of them ever do what they say after the election. In fact, most do the exact opposite after elected. It’s the only thing in Washington that isn’t a partisan matter.
