I'm pretty sure he or she means there are 2 days left until we vote... but maybe not? This phrasing is confusing.

Voting for Gary Johnson. If it were between Romney and Obama it would be Romney though, just because I think Paul Ryan brings him up a notch.

You think Paul Ryan is an asset to his campaign? Curious-- did you think the same thing about Palin in '08?

She is what part of what SUNK the 2008 campaign. (Obama and the legacy of Bush being the other two legs of that triad). Anytime a candidate is made to look the fool it's not a good sign. Romney has this problem as well. The office is POTUS and VP not court jester. If they were running for court jester, they would have that position in the bag. Sadly for them, that is not the position they are applying for.

I agree, I think McCain would've been president if it wasn't for Palin. Sure, she had her supporters on the right but the moderates weren't having any of her.

Exactly. There is a house a few doors away, hardcore Republican, and even they could not stand Palin being on the ticket. They literally ripped her name off of their yard sign leaving only McCain on it for all to see.

Obama for President.

I mostly ended up going dem this round except for the State attorney. I actually left a few blank because I didn't have a preference.

We had that discussion over lunch today. Everybody agreed on the table that it would have been either McCain, or a tough decision for them if it was for Palin. The idea of her becoming president if the old man bought the farm was just to scary.

I chose "other".

I vote for people, not political parties.

Laudable, but Mr. Smith Goes To Washington is fiction.

Most, if not all, are co-opted by the political machines they represent.

It is a thoroughly nasty business, all round.

But what THEY do is irrelevant to how I choose to vote.

I vote for the person I think will do the best job and who best represents my beliefs on how the country(/congress/city/etc.) should be run. I don't vote for anyone simply because they are a member of a specific party - in fact I vote for them in spite of that.

I do understand that any party membership is bound to influence the candidate, and try to take into consideration how that will affect their views.

I'd prefer to eliminate party politics, and make each candidate list their views on the major issues of the day. No, it's never going to happen, but nothing will ever change unless people dream of better solutions.

Gary Johnson all the way. It's pretty sad to see the country deciding between two War-mongering, Wall Street tools.
