okay

I find it interesting to see just how polarized the US is right now, and you want a hint, I voted Liberal in Canada, always have always will. So obviously conservative thinking rubs me the wrong way regardless of the candidate.

And I'm a conservative, always will vote that way, as long as there are only two viable parties in this f***ed-up country

I'd seriously vote Nader if it wasn't such a damn close election, and I wasn't so afraid Kerry would win. However, I still like Bush, unlike alot of people who would argue that line of reasoning the other way I think Nader'* wacked, but if enough fed-up people "threw" their vote away, we'd have a third party with, *gasp*, a substantial portion of the vote! All it takes is %5 of the country'* vote to be given to a particular party for federal funding to be granted for that party, people. I heard Perot got %4 in '92. See? it'* possible! It'* a long shot, for sure, but it'* the only shot our country has, in the end. And once there'* a third party, there'll be a fourth party, then a fifth, then a sixth, even. Then, we'll see parties that are, through competition, forced to do things right. At least to a degree Still, it'* better than this frigging system we have now! A friend told me that Finland, his parents' native land, has somewhere around 26 different major parties! See what I mean? Here'* rooting for that third party: May it'* chance at causing change come very soon...


Okay, that'* my rant for today :P But, hey, at least it'* a meaningful one this time, hehe

Actually, I don't like the fact that the US is so polarized. EIther way this ends up, about half the population is going to be thrilled, half is not going to be very happy. Nobody is going to stand around and just accept things easily even though, after Tuesday, we have to all still live with eachother (meaning US population in general). I know there are people out there that don't want to see the election go my way, and I'm scared if it goes their way, but I think we all agree that no matter how much we debate and anticipate there is only one thing that matters, so US citizens (over 18, of course)-GO VOTE!


(Lots of rambling, one little post.... )

I think the partisanship is horrid. I vote based on economics, and after many economics classes, i know what I want, and it'* not from my teachers, it'* my opinion on what this country should be.

Jim y our country is more liberal then the US to start, and you already have much in place that makes that work well. I think Canada is run well, and should continue what they're doing. However many things cannot transfer to our country.

I don't try to sway people'* opinions, i'll only correct them if they have bad facts. Everyone should vote for who they want, that'* the whole point of the system. I'm eager to see who wins this time around.

I vote straight on economics too, as well as healthcare and environment.

I am a very liberal person, but either party can sway me in their direction, as long as they have the right plans or ideas.

Well said, Jeanie And if you call that ranting, I think you need to hang around my posts a little more It was concise and well-written. Again, kudos Jeanie

Also, smashing job at refusing to state your political preferences Best way to avoid the controversy is not to enter it!

I already got your vote pegged, though, just to let you know

Dude! I know! oh well, she thinks shes allowed to and there is only one that is REALLY allowed too..heheh

But back on track, despite the partisan nature of this election and the electoral system in the US, its neat to know that some people can see past the name calling and finger pointing and vote based on the real issues.
