    I was just curious how this board plans to vote in November. It seems as though there are a lot of anti-Bush people and I was wondering if that is how everyone here feels or just the people with the biggest mouths :D

    A lot of anti-Bush people? Hmm, my guess would be that, like other such boards, the majority here are conservative. When we've done related polls, it often seems to turn out that way.

    Okay, let me be the one to get the joke out of the way:

    So does that make him a son of a Bish? :)


    (And, no, I don't think he is. Get over yourselves :cool: )

    Makes one wonder why?

    Nevertheless, on November 2, my vote shall be cast by punching out the Republican chad on the ballot. And I plan to make sure the chad isn't hanging...........:D

    An interesting poll. Even here, we are divided right down the middle, it seems.

    I'm not the board, I'm just one guy.

    Frankly, I wish that the election would go away and leave me alone.

    I am not impressed with Bush. I am not impressed with Kerry.

    I think that Bush had the country behind him in Afghanistan, but his hubris may have caused him to overreach in Iraq. His faith-based cultural-right stuff makes me nervous as well, because I don't share his faith or his culture.

    I think that Kerry has a record of speaking out of both sides of his mouth, has a Senate voting record that's too politically left for my taste and seems more interested in attacking Republicans than in producing constructive new ideas.

    I think that America could do a lot better than either of these men.

    American politics increasingly scares me. I think that the country is polarizing and is losing the ability to even communicate across party lines.

    Two pit-bulls, each with no thought beyond tearing the other to shreds.

    Maybe it's a failing of the baby-boom generation. Our parents' formative experience was World War II. That was an event that pulled the country together like nothing before or since. Our formative experience was Vietnam and its aftermath, events that tore us apart.

    Distance learning is an interest that brought all of us together. I'd hate to see politics divide us.

    I may or may not vote in the coming election, but if I do, I sure as hell am not going to tell any of you who I vote for. If I did, I would simply have made 50% of you into implacable enemies intent on destroying the evil that I represent.

    Madness....

    The poll asks who you will vote for. If you are undecided, you can't answer that question.

    Interesting you list two candidates for the Personal Choice Party. Marilyn Chambers is, however, the V.P. candidate.

    Also, you list two Prohibition candidates. Earl Dodge is the official candidate. Amondson and Pletten, along with Don Webb hijacked the party. This is a shame. The Prohibition Party is America's oldest surviving third party.

    The Dodge family is mostly responsbile for the party's continuation today even though they haven't done well in quite a few decades.

    You also list some independents and write-in's that are no longer running.

    Obviously, but since I think that the race will come down tot he undecided voters, I think the poll will give scewed results. Just my opinion.

    Jimmy Clifton for Prez

    Good point.

    For some good poll sites visit:

    www.electoral-vote.com (run by Kerry supporter)
    www.ElectionProjection.com (run by Bush supporter)
    www.RasmussenReports.com (Neutral, I think)

    All three sites rely on legit polls, so their numbers are similar.

  15. Kerry all the way...

    And may God help those undecided voters realize where their true interests lie. Not necessarily in the man, John Kerry, but most certainly not in the lapdog of the ultra-rich, George W. Bush.

    Carl:

    No, of course, John Kerry--he of the 8 figure fortune--would never be a lap dog of the rich!

    Never ceases to amaze me how fantastically wealthy Democrats like the Kennedys and Kerrys get a free pass when they support a policy--increased taxation--that almost assures greater misery for the working class, irregardless of what class is taxed, yet Republicans are called lapdogs of the rich.

    "I've never been hired by a poor man."
    Dr. Walter Willaims
     
  18. Well, let me explain it to you then.

    There's nothing wrong with BEING rich. Plenty of great leaders and good men and women through the ages have been rich.

    However, to tailor one's political policies and personal connections solely for the benefit of the upper crust of the upper crust (globally, including the Saudi Royal Family) is kind of where I would draw the line and where the label of "lapdog" starts to apply.

    To the best of my knowledge, neither John Kerry nor Teddy Kennedy kowtow to this so-called "base" of George W. Bush's support - the "haves and the have mores", as George W. himself so aptly put it, and as recorded for posterity in Fahrenheit 911 in dubya's own words out of his own mouth.

    OK Carl, I'll bite. Which policies? If anything, Bush has gone out of his way to appease the left with his domestic fiscal proposals--he doesn't really make "policies", read Articles One and Two of our Constitution, with the sole exception of an executive order, which isn't constitutional anyway, he doesn't have the power--he's probably about as conservative fiscally as Mr. Clinton.

    Which personal connections? And for that matter, assume a priori he's cultivated close personal connections with the wealthy--if it's ok to be one in your estimation, why does it become untoward to associate with one? And what of the networking-from-the-womb Mr. Clinton? No, no Tyson foods connection there, no lapdog of the wealthy and powerful. And what do you make of Mr. Kerry's very close, personal connections with great wealth--namely, his rather irreverent spouse?

    Let's see...long list of cadidates that no one has heard of...porn star as a candidate...sounds quite a bit like the recent California gubernatorial election.
