    How are we supposed to express ourselves with no poll feature? Around here, we even respond to polls about whether or not we ever respond to polls (the choice "I never respond to polls" usually wins).

    My depressed response is "Mostly Republican" (depressed by the lack of a poll feature, and at least a slight bit by the fact that Bush is Republican, but not by the fact of being a Republican).

    Edit: Maybe the Republican Party should split into the Bush Republicans and anti-Bush Republicans, or maybe the anti-Bush Republicans could call themselves the McCain Republicans.

    I do not follow leaders and have never joined a party

    I supported Goldwater in 64
    and pigasus in 68

    hated LBJ for the war
    nixon for being a real pig

    didnot care about unelected jerry ford

    thought carter was the best president of the resent lot

    hated ronnie raygun

    kinda liked bush1 but wanted pea-row to win just to shake things up

    kinda liked clinton at least we had jobs that payed well then

    BuSh2 and the far right thumpers are not good for this country
    even goldwater saw that coming

    When you get down to it, in principle neither party represents my views better than the other; at least not to any signficant degree. But lately that issue has been secondary to what I see as a disaster in US politics - the far right anti-constitution nuts that have gained power.

    Provincially I'm probably going to vote for the "Work Less" party. Or the Millionaires party. Havn't decided yet.

    Federally they all suck. I don't know anything about the Libertarians or the Communists, so unless I decide I like one of them I'll probably vote for Marxist-Leninists or the Marijuana Party.

    Of course there's always the possibility I might get involved with the Green party again... I might vote green too. Who knows really, depending on the mood I might even vote for the Sex party... Anything but the tories really.


    Damn, you yanks have so little choice....

    haha i think politics can be summed up by maddox

    I think the only reason I like Bush... well two reasons. 1) It pisses off liberals, 2) He hasn't taken my guns away yet. How anyone can truely "support" (or maybe ig ot like and support mixed up here) any of these candidates.

    I mean lets face it, everyone takes away rights, everyones screwing around... you just support the guy whos taking away the rights you don't care about... but of course you'll say you're trying to secure rights and all that crap.

    holy hell my computer just scared the crap outa me.... screw you hp software updates.

    What was I saying... yah lets face it, everyone sucks... i should be president... then you'd see some serious reigning.

    i mean... uhm, representing.

    If I were in the US depending of course on the candidate, I would currently lean towards voting democrat as the republican party has shifted too far towards rightwing conservatism.

    If there was still such a thing as liberal republicanism I would support that as I believe in small central government but unfortunately that wing of the party seems to have all but disappeared.

    Clinton didn't have money when he started out. I think within the GOP there is a need to be rich to get your party's nomination (due to the "not really one of us" snob factor) but there doesn't seem to be the same requirement for the democrats.
