    If those americans that choose not to vote, don't excercise their right to vote, then I don't feel they have the right to bitch, you do realize that you can write in a name, and there are about 7 other people on the ballot right? If the 30-50 million that don't vote (estimate) voted for another 1 or 2 people, that persons party would get federal funding because it would probably recieve about 5-10% of the nationak vote (required to become a legit 3rd party)

    certainly do, you live in Florida so I am sure voting could be a senstivie issue there. I live overseas quite a bit and I can still vote. People piss and moan about the Bush years, the Clinton years, Reagen years, etc. I am old enough to remember all of them and I get so irritated when people bitch about any politician if they themselves didnt vote. Silence at the polls will speak louder than all the Hollywood liberals and racists combined. I am beginning to think the folks that achieve the greatest clarity in terms of choices are the ones that dont believe the Democratic or Republican bullshit, and there is quite alot of it.
    A woman asked me in a pub if I would vote for Obama and I asked her why I should. Her reply was that he was black and America needs someone of color in the white house, etc. Regardless of who I vote for, I told her that voting because of race, creed or color or sex "just because is about as ignorant and stupid as blind support for either Republican or Democratic political leaders. I lost my patience when she defended Hillary Clinton simply because America need a woman in the white house. I mean for God's sake just give me some TRUTH for a change.
    So sick of the Republican and Democratic bashing, its sickening and merely shows how misguided and naive Americans really are, but to hear the British Liberal perspective sent me into a fit of peak.
    I will vote for the best candidate when I get enough information to make an informed choice, but then I chose to..
    I cant same the same for all the Liberals and Red Neck racists all over the world and in America but I will navigate around the hypocracy.

    Well voting for obama just because he is black, is plain stupid, I am, voting for him because he represents something different, I know we have no legit 3rd party, yes he's affiliated wit democrats, but he has crossed party lines according to his voting record. He's new enough to not be corrupted by washington and a senator long enough to know how the system works. I figure if things don't change in the first 4 years, I can vote for someone else then. The only other alternative is the black woman that is an ex senator from georgia, I can't find her name atm she's taking Ralph nader's spot.

    I am also extremely opposed to Mccain because of the fact that he champions the fact he's helped the native americans, but in all honesty, the native americans are not better off. (I am native myself)

    I can't believe what I heard today...

    Palin is the stereotypical 100 year old American... :rolleyes:

    Believes in Creationism
    Believes in Anit-Abortion
    Believes that Ecology is useless
    Believes Offshore Drilling = Longterm

    She didn't even have a passport a year ago. Please America, vote for McCain and this lovely lady because given McCain's old age, he will die soon enough, Palin will be President and then America will REALLY go to the dogs :D

    Europe shall retake power! Mouhahahaha!

    I think women are already souring to the idea of Palin, they're noticing that she is the complete anti-Hilary Clinton and probably don't like the idea of McCain kicking the bucket and leaving this hockey mom with her Juno daughter running the country.

    I look forward to Palin's upcoming speech, half of which I expect to consist of kissing female voting ass. If that's her plan it will probably backfire and the only votes she will suck in will be the Evangelicals.

    Palin is hot... 'nuff said.

    The only thing that bothers me is her husband is High up in BP... not cool imo we need to research alternative fuels. Whether it is Natural Gas or Hydrogen something needs to be done. I hope to God she doesn't prevent any further research on that.

    All I know is that Sarah Palin being picked for the VP slot has the left in all out panic/attack mode. I haven't seen the left so paniced since Clarence Thomas. If anything they are in a bigger panic over this than with the Clarance Thomas SCOTUS pick.

    They have sunk to a new low with some of their vicious attacks. First with claiming that Trig was her DAUGHTER's baby, and now going after the daughter herself, What's next? Are they gong to go after Piper, the youngest daughter too?

    For what a lot of DEMOCRAT women have to say about this pick, I'd suggest that you go to www.hillaryclintonforum.net - Powered by vBulletin and see what they have to say about Mr. Obama.

    SeraphicSorcerer, you say "(I am native myself)". Maybe a visit to this site: Native American’s Against Obama Weblog and this page in particular Native Americans Against Obama-Guh-No-Duh (Alive) Native American’s Against Obama Weblog will give you food for thought. And, Sheraphic, she's MARRIED to a Native American. Don't you think that she has some insight as to the conditions in the American Indian Community?

    In fact, the second page I linkd to above is something I think all of you should check out, and even if you don't read it, just play the first video.

    candidates with integrity and grit always make the left a little nervous.

    She has tits and a vagina. This is something you don't normally see from the Republican party...hence the scared Democrats.

    I am actually against indian casinos, I think Native americans have lost all idelogy and identity, hence why you don't see us full blooded, full family in your local red lobster, your applebees, because a lot of em are to busy worrying about what could be instead of focusing on what should be. I think as a Shaman (elder inheriter of the tribe) that I woudl be more in touch with the issues then your want to be blogger elite.

    As for Obama's Vote, So what? Abortion is such a bullshit issue, I'm sick of hearing about it, it will not fundamentally change at all ever. You can have a fully pro-life republican congress/president and it won't change. Unless they like the idea of fullblown outrage/revolt. People honestly need to shut the f up about Abortion it's a sidetrack issue. I like Obama more for his economic policy. Which if you actually read what he has in store instead of buying republican propogaanda it "sounds" like a good "plan". However no plan can be enacted without the support of congress. I also like the fact that hes for a more increased military presence in afghan, and for a non existant one in iraq. He'll probably cut funding for the military, up it for the vets, and use the extra money for his education plan. If you've looked at our budget we spend 9% on education... Yet no child is left behind... cough... bullshit. We've basically dumbed down our education so we can let the black kids catch up. Which is bullshit, Black people aren't dumb, they just need to be taught in their own way, and taught the same shit. We've plummeted off of science/math in our educational system. We need to get back on track, and these righty tighty people aren't going to do it with their scumbag social conservatism. I suggesty anyone who believe in the republicans actually looks up what republican means. If this was still the party of lincoln, I might actually go their way. but I'd rather vote for the "crazy black guy" then the moron white guy who's been in office 26 years, and then chose a "god sent us to iraq" Vp.

    Oh Boy! I hope you have those suspenders on tight Buzzard because I just laughed my ass off reading these pieces on Palin. They easily tore her to shreds :D

    I'd read the whole thing but he's a few of my fav quotes:

    Palin: wrong woman, wrong message - Los Angeles Times

    Why the media should apologize - Roger Simon - Politico.com

    I haven't had a chance to read or hear her speech yet but I'm sure it'll get me giggling too.

    Well, in regards to her speech, it would have been kinder if she would have just whipped out her Moose Gun and shot Obama...he would have been beaten up less.

    "The difference between a Pit Bull and a Hockey Mom...lipstick" :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    I think if I was Joe Biden, I'd try 'calling in sick' on the days that his debates with her are scheduled.

    "I have a news flash for the media..."

    She looked at Obama, Biden, AND the media, stuck a knife in their ribs, twisted it, and smiled sweetly while doing so. They need to be afraid, very afraid.

    EDIT: Joe Biden...37 years experience. What was the phrase again? Oh yeah, "Sara for more votes running for Mayor than Biden got running for President" This is going to be FUN.

    I'm not sure why this keeps coming up, Biden got far more votes in his primaries than Palin had people in her town.

    I don't pray, but if McCain wins I'll seriously consider making a prayer for his health.
