    It is fair to say that whatever the President of the USA decides affects the rest of the World.

    Carbon Dioxide Emmissions !

    Interest Rates !

    Who we attack !

    Who we save !

    Who gets subsidies and whose industries are destroyed because of them.

    Anyway the US citizens can't seem to choose their own President - with more people voting for Gore than Bush in the last one.

    Yeah I just had the same trouble when I went back to it.
    It lists all the U.S. pesidents that were known freemasons.
    George bush senior was one and so was Bill Clinton and Al gore.
    They were all 33rd degree masons which is pretty high up.

    Very high up considering there are only 32 degrees in Free Masonary - unless they are in some buffalo or Moose Head or whatever else they do in the US - I guess they aren't in the United Grand Lodge

    Bet they're not masons anyway

    Bush is a fraternity brother at Yale. Usually fraternity brothers aren't also Freemasons, or in my fraternity anyway.

    Reading on the net it appears that in the US there is an honourary degree being the 33rd ! - Means he is not a mason - bit like getting an honourary degree - you didn't take any exams for it!

    You are right there are 33 degrees the last one being honourary - bestowed on Politicians etc apparently.

    If you want to learn the degree go to: http://www.gaiaguys.net/Masonic-33rd-degree.htm though I am not sure if Taylors or Emmulation is used.

    Good luck on your 3rd - I hope the donkey is a pretty one!

    Homer Simpson get's my vote. He seems to have more sense than any of the candidates on view.

    Personally i dont envy the US nation having ether Kerry or Bush. In my opinion they deserve and need far better leadership at present.

    The presidential elections have been nothing but a choice between schmuck A and schmuck B for a long time.

    The only guy I actually got really excited about was John McCain. The sad fact was that he had a spine and too much integrity to buttkiss and schmooze enough to make it. He is one of the pitifully few politicians that I not only respect but also admire.

    Anymore we vote for the lesser of two evils.

    The US president is not elected by popular vote he is elected by what is called an electoral college.

    Yet we are supporting an election by popular vote in Iraq -- go figure.
