*notes the many canadians, decides to refrain from saying anything bad about Canada*

But anyway yes, the last US election was definitely for the lesser of the 2 evils. I couldn't stand either of them and i know many many people who agreed. It wasn't about how well they could run the country.
It'* pretty pathetic really. European countries have something like 11-12 candidates and we only had 2. Sure we had the Green party and the independants but everyone thinks they are tossing their vote away when they vote for them. Isn't it a bit ironic that instead of looking into the independants the whole nation basically forces themselves into an "either or" election between two morons. Kerry and Bush were complete idiots. Bush got Cs in college which Kerry attacked him with but Kerry got low Cs and Ds. How do you attack someone'* grades when they got better scores? Bush on the other hand can't make a sentence without screwing it up.
The party system is garbage. We should toss the entire party system out and see who takes the rise without the backing of millionaire oil companies (to prove it theres a bill going through now that will impose an extra tax on hybrid cars because they don't pay as much gas tax).

Offtopic for a moment, but this humours me slightly. Why would you have anything to say about us (Canadians?). Its interesting how some Americans feel compelled to say something bad about other countries. And based on this and other threads, we (CDN BC members) are not American bashers.

Back on topic.

Candidates start campaigning today.

Ah, not as close as I had thought. What do you think of the new PQ leader, Andre Bosclair?

I loves ya'll bro.

I do wish there was another main party to compete with the existing two here in the US.

I am a firm constitutionalist and big on states rights. This causes some confilct on who to vote for at times. I am morally conservative, but very much in the center on economic issues.

There is a party called the Constitutional party here in the US. However, they are mostly obscure, and I haven't fully researched them out that much anyway....

Anyway, I hope things turn out good for you in Canada!!

Off topic for a minute: Another minority party in the U.*. is the Libertarian Party. They are basically the followers of the original constitution and work for minimalist government and small federal government. You should check into it.

OK, back on topic:
I think most people prefer stable government over disruption, which is one reason we will put up with less-than-ideal government over potential chaos/unknown change. So, it'* understandable why I read an almost universal frustration with the "wasteful and unnecessary" (paraphrased) elections coming up. I wish you luck. We all need it...
