I think we can all agree on that, no matter who voted for who.
Oh, totally agreed there. You would have been able to say the same thing if Kerry got in too...

I don't typically get involved with politics anymore, I try to remain neutral in anything with a political spin.
Here'* my take on the whole thing. Kerry is a poor choice for President, but the last 4 years showed that Bush is an even poorer choice. But the choices were either a billionaire Yalie or a billionaire Yalie(Nader was never a contender and a 3rd party won't be for many, many years). Personally I think that society as a whole will bumble it'* way through any problems that ever come up, such as abortion, social security, gay marriage, etc, despite who and what party is in power.

Great commentaries, all I love that we can discuss this honestly and thoughfully, without all that partisan bickering and arguing, and we all realize that everyone'* opinion is still valid, even despite the fact that I'm still right...

:P

Oh yes. You learn to appreciate this when you are on other forums which things are less....mature.

BTW, Kyle, did you have me pegged right earlier? Just wondering.

I'm sorry, but I can't support a vote for Kerry as a vote against Bush. That'* just stupid. I'm sorry, I just think that'* a ****-poor reason to vote for a candidate to lead our nation. So, vote one "idiot" out just to bring another in? If you don't like Bush, then vote for a third party. We need, more than anything else, a third party in this screwed up country. It would force BOTH the Dems and the Reps to get their act together if a third party got a large portion of the vote, and it also would put pressure on them to stay "competitive" if you will. Not to mention if enough people got fed up and voted for a third party, one might actually win, and thus would break a 200 year precedent in this country. George Washington was the last independent president in this country. Don't you think it'* time for another?

Oh, and if you actually believe Bush is going to enact the draft just like that, your stupider than I thought!

Contradicting aren't we.

Everyone has their own reasons to vote for a candidate, and their own stances on politics. They will do and think as they please, and it should be respected.

Look at the Canadian system and you'll see why this doesn't work. If a party does not have a majority government, they make deals with the other parties to get their bills passed as is happening right now. It allows for alliances to form and deals to be made, which is never good.

I do like how America gets to pick it'* president seperately from it'* government though. Much better then here where the leader of the party is the leader of the country.
