Next time vote your guy

IMO, those who voted for Kerry just because they thought Bush had to go have failed themselves. You think Bush voters ceded democracy to fear? Anti Bush voters are just as bad, letting their fear of Bush guide their vote.

This was a great opportunity for Greenies and to an extent, Liberatarians to gain momentum from the 2000 election. Now we start allover again.

Next time stick with your guy.

All hail the Sixteen Men of Tain!

In spite of "my fear of Bush", which is well founded as the US will ultimately realize, I liked Kerry. He has well reasoned positions on all the issues, and was a very good public speaker.

My guy would have been Kucinich, who endorsed Kerry after the primaries. I voted for Nader in 2000, but his ridiculous behavior towards the Green party and subsequent involvement with the Reform party soured me. I guess I never considered Cobb, and that's where your point is made.

I did, I voted for one of those "colorful" third parties this time and last. Kerry was never an option in my solidly blue state.

RE: Next time vote your guy

I had plans of voting Badnarik right up until the night of Nov. 1. Had I known that my vote would have not mattered in the grand scheme of things, I would have voted Badnarik and still been pleased with the results.

However, my completely rational fear of what Kerry and those of his ilk would do to our country motivated me to vote Bush.

I voted for Bodnarik for you, Mo'. Glad to help. My states was solidly Bush, so I felt not a pang of fear that M. Kerry had a chance here. The luxury of conscience is exersized only when there is no threat.

Being in LA means that I got all my dead relatives out to vote and paid them each $10 to vote for Bodnarek. But the dishonest mofos all voted for Edwin Edwards! Sorry.

If enough people had voted for Badnarik your vote would have counted a whole helluva lot. I hope you and Bush see eye to eye. Don't complain in four years that your Libertarian vote won't matter in the "grand scheme of things."

We need to drive a wooden stake right into the heart of this two party system.
