who will you vote for?

Postby TerraFrost » Tue Jul 27, 2004 5:21 pm

with the presidential elections looming just over the horizon, i'm currious - who do ya'll plan on voting for, and why?

i'm sorta undecided, myself. i'm not the biggest fan of bush, but i'm not sure kerry will be a whole lot better. i think the best president might be one from a smaller third party, but that doesn't seem to likely. because of that, those who have political leanings that are sympathetic to third parties often still vote democrat, or republican. they say they don't want to throw away their vote, but... aren't they throwing it away, anyway, if they vote for the candidate that doesn't appeal to them the most?

of course, then again, i suppose it also depends on why you're voting. if you're voting because you want your opinions heard, then, imho, you should vote for the candidate you want to - not for the one most likely to win. if, however, you're voting primarily to get someone out of office - because you don't like what they've done in their term - then i guess you are quite justified in voting for the opposing candidate most likely to win.

Yep, that's me. That's why whenever someone asks me who I'm voting for, I always tell them I'm voting against Bush.

I'm not really to keen on Kerry either, but he's the lesser of the 2 evils. Such is how it is with politics.

I voted for the NDP, and thus split the Left-of-Canadian-Alliance-Vote 28% / 28%, letting the alliance win with 40%. Boo.

Personally, I would vote for Bush if I could vote.

If I could, I'd vote Kerry. Even though "because he's not Bush" is a crappy reason.

I guess, why would you vote for Bush?

i will vote kerry. i am a true believer of democratic ideals. in fact, kerry is a little more conservative than i would like. but then again, he has to be in the middle because u don't want to alienate people who might vote for u but are going to vote bush b/c you're too liberal.

the major 3rd party candidate unfortunately draws more democratic swinging people than he does republican. that's the reason republicans were helping to get nader on the ballot. it takes a few percentage points of heat off of bush.

i honestly don't understand how bush could even believe what he says. i think his track record clearly shows most of the things he has been saying to get more libs on board his side can not and will not heppen.

i would have loved if al gore would have run or hilary clinton or dean to have gotten the nomination because i would love to have any of them as president. though kerry isn't my first choice, he is the democrat nominee and will follow the ideals of the democrat party and therefore is the person i will be voting for.

I don't know about cochon, but aulla isn't one to talk, no offense.

Kerry has my vote. And chat, that is perfect enough reason. The world hates america, we have lost all our jobs, we're losing the war on terror, and millions of other fuck-ups on bush's behalf. Kerry couldn't be as bad as bush.

No matter how much botox he has, it doesn't effect his ability to run the country, grow up Bush. Getting a "C" in college IS, however.
