Yeah, I was just wondering. I've decided to become an Independant from a Democrat. Well...an Independant that is just a bit biased to support Democrats. :p

I figure there may be some good Republicans running for office some time soon. I think that every Republican that has run for office in the last...thirty years sucked. I mean, for office of President.

Yeah, ok idea...

But considering most supermodels starve themselves to where they have no breasts...Not such a good idea.

Unless you're talkin bout plus size :D

My leanings are libertarian - fiscal conservative, social liberal, governmantal minimalist, constitutional minimalist, individual rights maximalist, emphasis on equal opportunity but individual achievement.

They don't have a party for that.

In Massachusetts, there is an Independant party, so to be 'independant' of party affiliation while maintaining voting registration you have to be 'Unenrolled'.

As to who to vote for ... tough call.

Bush is a 'known'. I don't agree with him on many things - he's been way too liberal fiscally, increasing govenment all over the place, not protecting our borders, increasing rights for illegal immigrants, and so on. And I fundamentally disagreed with the ultimatum he made, and could see us landing straight into war.

Kerry is what I call a typical Democrat. He has the 'stance of the hour' syndrome - he agrees with Bush on 'gay marriage' (about which I disagree with them, being a rights maximalist), but doesn't get any flack for it. He flip flops on issues - he's been Teddy Kennedy's shadow for years, tried to be tough at other times ... all to what suits the moment.

The media coverage makes me barf it is so bipolar biased. Sixty Minutes was tossing up softballs?!? 'If you knew everything that is known now ... would you have made the same call?' (referring to Bush's ultimatum) DUH?!? Bush *himself* has said as much as that significant mistakes and misinterpretations in intelligence were made, pretty much saying that *he* wouldn't make the same call. But while it plays both ways (FoxNews and talk radio) ... it is just that the majority of major media sources are run by people who identify themselves as liberal and /or democrats.

Now that's the way I like it! I should have registered as an Independent. I'm not siding with either party because I believe in changes based on problems, not creating more with Party BS. :rolleyes:

not creating more with Party BS.

Actually, it's conflicts of ideals that happen to be pinned to parties that create the problems. The parties are just groupings of common ideals.

What I think about voting one way or the other:

"For myself, I have solved this political dilemma in a very direct way. On Election Day, I stay home. two reasons:first of all, voting is meaningless;this country was bought and paid for a long time ago.That empty **** they shuffle around and repackage every four years doesn't mean a thing. Second, I don't vote, because I firmly beleive that if you vote, you have no right to complain. I know some people like to twist that around and say, 'If you don't vote, you have no right to complain.'But where's the logic in that? Think it through: if you vote, and you elect dishonest, incompetent politicians, and they screw things up, then you are responsible for what they've done. You voted them in. You caused the problem. You have no right to complain. I, on the other hand, who did not vote-who, in fact, did not even leave the house on election Day-am in no way responsible for what these politicians have done and have every right to complain as loud as I want, about the mess you created. Which I had nothing to do with. Why can't people see that?"-George Carlin

BTW, I don't think that just because he does. I just happen to agree.

cynical much? :D

I happen to agree with you though, so i must be cynical too. It makes very little difference who you vote for, and the political classes have become so detached from the population and attached to big business that they are both basically the same party with a different skin.
And with most companies funding BOTH parties it makes no difference who wins, the policies won't change much.

At least by abstaining you can register a protest by reducing the turnout. Evenually thay are going to have to realise that the turnout is so low that something will have to be done.

What i really want is a "none of the above" option on my ballot paper....

NAACP is a big business, the so-called gay rights organizations are big business, Teachers unions are big business, all of these so called 'populist' organizations are big businesses - some bigger than any individual corporate entity - all bent on changing things in their own way to benefit *their* stockholders ... in the supposed name of the people.

probably. It has come to the point where if you don't have a high powered lobbying group, a lot of political donations and a politically biased think-tank behind you, no one will listen to your views.

i'd settle for a "yoda" option on my ballot...:D
