I just can't vote for Bush... have to fight for my trails at the local level even harder than I do now. :lol:

My friend, the local level will be completely powerless against Executive Privilege of a sitting President. In my opinion the American public may rather live under a socialist government and eventually a dictatorship. They seem to want the government and taxes to take care of everything. I hope they are not the majority but fear they are becoming one.

The Fall Of A Republic

When the thirteen colonies were still a part of England, Professor Alexander Tyler wrote about the fall of the Athenian republic over two thousand years previous to that time:
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage. Alexander Tyler

I realize this is totally off topic and there is an appropriate forum for this discussion. So I will restrain myself from further comment.

As far as carbs go try to reduce the amount you eat to cut pounds off your bod and put speed into your machine. :thumbsup: :awww: :devil:

For me its all about Iran. They have 300 P-2 centrifuges chruning night and day producing bomb grade plutonium.

What are we going to do about that?

I dont care about tax cuts, or what Maqtar Al-Sadr says about the US forces in Iraq. I dont care about drilling in the arctic. I dont care about affordable medicine for old people in Florida...

I am worried about Iran.

I think Bush is also worried about Iran. I think thats (hopefully) where the troops are going next.

I think Kerry is psychologically damaged by his Vietnam experience and has a kneejerk aversion to war. That is a good thing during times of peace. That is a bad thing when you have battles raging in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Hopefully Bush will finish off the job once and for all in the middle east so our children dont end up fighting this war all over again in 15 years after a Nuke goes off in a container landing in Long Beach or New Jersey.
Sadly i dont think Kerry grasps the historical nature of events going on right now. It is a pivotal moment when we can fix things once and for all, or just put on a feel good bandaid, pull out, feel good about it all, and then loose 10,000 americans in a nuke blast in 2012.
Do you really think 9-11 was the last hit? Do you really think its all Al-Qaida? The World Trade Center was bombed twice--once by AL Qaida, once by another, non-Al Qaida muslim extremist.
We have little choice but to bring back the draft, and go at it systematically all accross the middle east. We need the dogged determination that the Greatest Generation did for us 60 years ago.
Wake up liberals. You are right about Vietnam, Grenada, Panama. You are wrong about Gulf War One, Afghanistan, Iraq, and the future battles in Tehran and Damascus.
Look at the big picture, and ask yourself where all this is going if we dont fix it.
Its going nuclear Ka Boom in LA and NYC if we dont take over the middle east. Yeah i have been in war zones, yeah i have been throughout the middle east. Yeah its that simple. If we get nuked our economy will be so f-ed for so long you can forget about luxuries like dirt bikes and toy haulers...
Personally i just wish Bush wasnt such a [@#$%&*!]. Where is Winston Churchill when we need him?
.....hmmmmm a little off the subject here.....
yeah adjust the float bowl 1mm higher. That'll fix it!

I would suggest you watch "Faux News" less, and ride your bike more.

Latest update is I have ordered Evans NPG+ coolant. A low pressure cap can be used with this stuff and it will not boil over. :thumbsup:

This is my second year of riding with the quick silver carb and I have not had any problems whatsoever. Yes you have to adjust it, but no big deal. You could probably adjust the stock carb to run perfect but you'd still have the starting problems if you tip it over, and rejet everytime you change altitude. I'm getting better milage out of the edelbrock as well. :thumbsup:
