A libertarian-minded blogger sums up his New York candidates: “Ick, yuk, blech, barf, and gimme-a-break.”
That guy needs to read this and act like a grownup.
Like you, Steven! We all know Bush isn’t a libertarian. What major party candidate ever is? But we also know Kerry is impossible.
The Libertarian Party stopped impressing me when they ran the guy who painted with his chin beard against Reagan. The recent spate of, “We need to fight the War on Terror by defunding the military and abandoning all of the world outside of America’s borders” BS that I’ve been hearing from them doesn’t change my mind.
What happened to “fuggedaboutit”?
Quick question, is my memory slipping? I swear that the forged Niger docs were exposed well before the Prez’s State of the Union speech and that the revelation got more publicity than the original news. When I google it now, there’s just a huge mess of spin from 2003. Have the original headlines been buried?
I did like the comment about how its easy to vote your conscience when there’s no way the person you vote for will win.
And *normally* I’d go on about the value of third-party voting. But it depends on really and truely not caring which one of the major party candidates win. In 2000 I honestly had no preference. This year I do.
Is it a Bug or a Feature?
Why is it that come every fourth November as we choose a candidate to support, so many toss their hands in the air in frustration as neither candidateever seems fills the bill? As I look back on my previous…
Why is the ‘average joe’ so freaked about the Patriot act?
NYer’s are way too self-absorbed for the country’s good and why do they believe everything in the world is about them?
That guy showed a shockingly poor grasp of the value of his vote. He says that his abstaining from the vote was like scoring it “Bush 0, Kerry -1″. No, no it’s damn sure isn’t. It’s scoring it Democracy 0.
The abstainer is still going to get one of those two guys as the president, so he may as well vote for the one who he likes more (or hates less, if you really insist on playing with semantics). Not voting does NOT send a message, not this year.
It’s not as though his dislikng Kerry more cancels a vote! When voting, you never vote against, only for, someone. That’s why it’s stupid as hell to vote for a guy “because he’s not Bush”.
I lose sleep over the thought that, come Nov 3rd, all the abstainers and all the anti-Bush but not really pro-Kerry people will wake up and get exactly the kind of country they vote for.
