Who's protesting? 
I've just grown weary of voting  for the "lesser of two evils" or casting my vote for one, so the other "bad" guy doesn't get in.
Been there, done that....recently, as a matter of fact. Stare

I understand your frustration Mark, But like the saying goes " you play the cards you were dealt". The problem is we can't fold, we've got to much in the pot!!!!

I don't want to argue, I'm just asking.
 
I'm totally dissatisfied with Sen. McCain as a Presidential candidate, Bill.
I appreciate the mans prior military service, but I think he's tax and spend, BIG government politician, as recently evidenced by his support of The Bail Out.
Sorry, I meant GOVCO's "financial rescue plan"......... Roll%20Eyes

Oh I won't argue with ya on this my brother. I say vote your conscience. If your gut says Barr go with Barr. I'll probably be right there with you on that one. Fact is beyond the 2nd amendment issue, it's really a matter of how one will hurt us as opposed to the other.

Well, hmmmm.......
 
I'm beginning to like him more than I used to....of course, Obama would be a CATASTROPHE.  Think of your Gun Rights....think of Supreme Court picks......[how about Charles Schumer for the Supreme Court?  Mario Cuomo?  Hillary Clinton?  Dozens of Kennedys that I was blissfully unaware of..........? ]
 
Shocked

So, my "rights" will be more secure under a McCain presidency, Ed?

Why not just vote for Obama and admit it?  Because a vote for Bob Barr is a vote for Obama.  Any vote not for McCain is a vote for Obama.

No........ A vote for Bob Barr is a vote for Bob Barr. If I vote for Bob Barr and the vote tallies in Obamas count. That's vote fraud, which will likely happen anyway.

No one said McCain was perfect, but he is the lesser of two evils.  Gentlemen, most of us here are conservative, and being conservative is voting for what is best for the country, not what is best for ME, or MY FEELINGS, But for CORE beliefs and values.  Thats what seperates us for Democrats, they don't have a Core.

Four or five competitive parties would be a nice dream. It'd probably make things a little less evil than the two major party system we have right now.

I believe we need to vote for the one we believe will at least THINK about what we are concerned about.  Obama we know will not, With McCain you can limit his power with keeping on our Senators and Representatives. We really need to stay in our Representatives and Senators faces. Hey, my Senators and Representative know my phone number. I rattle their cages all the time.

I will vote my conscience, and as far as I am concerned our 2nd amendment rights are not the only thing at stake here. There is a very troubling trend coming from our republican leaders. This trend is to shout about being pro-gun. Many will vote just on this issue alone, granted it,s one of the most important issues at hand. The fact is, however the party is rapidly losing it's roots. They will continually bastardize our constitution to suit their political ambitions. They want to even further devalue the dollar. They want to use programs and such to try and secure a voting base. Worst of all is that we are now voting for the lesser of evils, because they know we will, so they aren't giving us candidates that truly reflect what our values are. The way it is right now, the only difference between the two parties is the democrats will get us there quicker. Either way we wind up in the same place.
You change this by making a statement. They all want political longevity, so use your vote to tell them that the choice of candidates isn't what you want. The dems are learning this lesson, they are more and more swinging to the green party philosophy. Why is that? Because the green party has cost them elections. If we do not learn from this and take a stand right now and make our displeasure well known then we will not win, EVER.

Really?
I feel at this point a vote for McCain is just a vote for Obama in the end. The results will be basically the same. Two sides of the same coin.
Not much differance between the two, if you ask me. And you did. Wink
 
Oh, and the fact that one wears an "R" jersey and the other a "D" jersey not withstanding.....Shocked
