GNE Presidential Election Poll
« on: September 12, 2008, 08:20:51 am »
I figured we could use another of the many polls that exist. Let's see what everyone on here thinks. Of course, discussion is always good too.

Right now, I'm on the Obamarama bandwagon. I don't keep up with it a great deal, though. But if for some reason Obama falls out of favor, I'm writing in Spider Jerusalem on my ballot.

I tend to avoid political discussions, but I guess I'll weigh in at least.

I personally distrust Obama.  I'm not one of those right wing NUTCASES like Ann Coulter who thinks that the liberals are a bunch of subversive communist hippie spies who are trying to overthrow the nation, but I can't see myself voting for the man. 

He equivocates too often for my liking. 

Now, I know many politicians hide behind smoke and mirrors on BOTH sides of the aisle, but when he's asked a controversial question he responds with "I don't think it's my place to answer that" or "That's above my paygrade".

It's not like he was asked "What would you enforce as national policy regarding this controversial topic?" he was simply asked to express his opinion. 

Dodging questions like that irritates me to no end, because it makes me feel that I can't trust him.  He's going to do whatever's necessary to paint himself as being the best candidate for the job without actually revealing who we're ACTUALLY voting for.

That being said, I'm not all hugely enthusiastic about John McCain either.  This election feels very much like the 2004 election in that I felt that voting would be trying to cast a ballot for the lesser of two evils, neither of which I really wanted running my country.

And then I remembered that big business runs this country, not the government, and voted for whomever I agreed with on a personal level.

For me, that's typically the Republican party.  Although honestly, despite the historical significance of this election, I don't give a rat's ass who gets into the White House, and I don't think it'll matter all that much in the long run.

So you guys go have fun, vote for whomever you prefer.  I think I'll go to the movies and pump a little money back into the economy (that way I keep the big business owners happy and don't find myself in Gitmo  :tinfoil:). 

Besides, with everyone standing in line at the polls, the theaters are bound to be less crowded than normal.

I watched so much scrambled TV porn when I was young that by the time I got to see real porn I was quickly put off by the lack of subtlety and unabstract nature of it.

Why?  Do you have a valid reason or are you just spouting nonsense that's been force fed you by one camp or another?

That's almost as mindless and petty as claiming that if Obama gets elected we'll be an "Obama-nation".

It's people who promote thinking like that who make me want to scream.

If McCain gets elected I will buy your plane ticket out of the states because I hate people who say shit like that. Oh, and "Don't look at me, I didn't vote for him" OH SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU PEOPLE. So you didn't vote for that person, wonderful, but the majority of the nation did and it's a republic. I'm sorry you were/may be a minority as far as your vote went, so fucking deal with it.

While I disagree with many things the republicans say and do, one thing that I RARELY see them do is have bumperstickers spouting shit like "He's not MY president!"

GodDAMN.
What foes are we to meet in battle that we have not vanquished in the shadows of the human soul? What Daemons scream that have not cried to us from the dark places of the mind? What fear have we of death who know there is immortality in the great and noble deeds of men?

Fuck, does it have to be one of those two? Trajan's just pandering to the military vote, and KilGrey has no foreign policy experience.

PLEASE?

You give me unlimited resources and a month, and this world will be vastly improved.  And no one would ever know we were there.   :ninja:

Fine, Dragnix for VP. He'd never leave that undisclosed location.
