Primaries - Who are you voting for?

Posted 09 January 2008 - 04:16 PM

Ron Paul's got my vote as he is the closest to being a true Libertarian which I support.

Who are you voting for?

I know VERY little when it comes to politics and such (holy crap i actually get the ability to vote in 22 days) but i heard Ron Paul was really racist?

"Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal."

Everyone is racist, some just have better self control. It's human nature.

What?

I think you mean "everyone is prejudice"...

Some idiots seem to take their unwelcome opinions and make them very public.

Why is his opinion unwelcome? This is America, everyones opinion is welcome, whether you like it or agree with it is an entirely different problem.

You don't have too. That is the great thing about opinions, everyone has got one. ;)

And coincidentally, Ron Paul is a strict constitutionalist and one of the few people running that actually support protecting that right :)

I'm voting Colbert. If he wins, I'll stay for awhile. If not, I'm off to England.

a vote for ron paul is a vote for money in your pocket.


in all honesty i would say he is the best vote.
his views on some things are extreme, but... they are all fully backed by the constituion.

and , i view congress as a limiter. ron pauls view, limited by congress = perfection.

his 'racist' caricature is played up to limit his viability. his grass roots movement & its fervor really scares the other guys IMO.


but i'm also an obama fan. and i hate dems. if only he wouldn't have to hang out with the ted kennedy's if he wins.

hillary is classless. i really can't stand the molding of public opinion she tries such as the crying the day after losing a primary because we see her as a bitch and they want to show the softer side. i dislike her more for that.

in the primary i have a tough decision. paul or obama.
the decision is tough because paul isn't getting the nomination,
and obama needs votes...

actually, i'm voting for mccain. just to keep trakker off the boards.

I choose not to vote, but you know I am really hating Obama for a few reasons. A) The man preeches like martin luther king jr... but you know, he is much wealthier than most blacks in America, he acts like he is pretty white, and that is not much like martin luther king. B.) The man has like no foreign policy. In this world the first thing we need is someone with at least that. How do you clean up Bush's international crisis if you have no foreign policy experience?

Now normally I would say I like Clinton but she has really made some bad decisions lately. Not to mention she acts like a robot and out of touch with the American people. I think she has the skills and guts to take the country where it needs to go, but come on man... get with the program.

Oh and one last thing... Giuliani, he was just a mayor in the right spot at the right time. I don't care who you are, if you were mayor of New york on 9/11 and then said something like "We will reuild and be stronger than ever!" you were golden. I like to call him the candidate of circumstance.

The rest of them... not even a blip on the radar. :)
