@ McCain supporters:
TRAITORS! TRAITORS ALL OF YOU!!!!!
[deep breath]

In all seriousness I'm split between the two of them. I turn 18 in January so I'm gonna miss it anyways. I also don't know every single detail about the candidates really, just some very general policies and platforms. I know a bit about McCain and his maverick status because I had to do a report on him once. Seems like a decent guy (better and smarter than Bush for sure), but one issue against him his health. In a word, it's not great. LOL, that's three words (four when you count the contraction).
And quite, frankly I'm tired of the Republican Party. I'm tired of conservative smear campaigns saying "this liberal is anti-American, this liberal was friends with a domestic terrorist, this liberal is a flaming Muslim...oh wait....not really."
I have no idea what's going on in Iraq, only that many people are dying and progress isn't good enough for most.
Republican's cheated in Florida 2000 election, which I'm still upset about. They attempt to ban gay marriage to assuage some pathetic beliefs about God. Some of them, like Sarah Palin seem to get off on shooting animals, in triplicate. And so many of them, McCain included, get caught with their pants down (adultery). Don't ask me why the conservative half breaks holy matrimony oaths more often.
Okay, venting is over.
Seriously....I'm split.

Obama's wife was giving a speech somewhere or talking to someone on CNN and she was talking about giving tax breaks to middle class people. How the hell does she intend to do that when she is not going to be elected but rather her husband possibly.

For those who say the 2000 election was stolen, get over it. It wasn't and you should damn well know it by now. The liberals really showed their true colors then and still do now. Go ahead and elect someone that will raise taxes and have you pay for programs you will not be able to use. We do not need more government beauracracies that everyone seems to think is needed. Take a look at some of the past programs that were put in place by liberal Presidents like FEMA. Think about it.

They won't and perhaps never will but that's not the point. It's all about voicing your opinion, making your choice as to who you feel is best and it takes vital votes from the two main parties.
@WhiteKnight.
The Republican's did cheat in Florida 2000. The state government eliminated the eligibility of ex-cons to vote (who are mostly Democratic), and crossed out the names of anyone whose name was similar to an ex-con, just for ****s and giggles.
What's your take on it then? Every liberal accusation of foul play is false? God knows it wasn't the smoothest election process.

Where is your proof of this accuasation? Don't tell me I can find it when this is the first I have heard of it. How do you know ex-cons are mostly Democratic? Lastly, did you know that Florida has the right to set the requirments on who is eligible to vote including not allowing felons the right to vote?

Just so you know, SECTION 4. Disqualifications.-- (http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?mode=constitution&submenu=3&tab=statutes#A06S04). Many states

Well damn White Knight, here's where being a rather lazy liberal kid kicks me in the teeth. In all honesty, I have no proof other than a documentary for one of my classes. That and Wikipedia ( =( ). Anything else about it on the internet I'm not even gonna bother to find. For the most part I assumed it was common knowledge or speculation or whathaveyou, and that you were going against it. You're saying they didn't cheeat? That the whole was simply a legit mess? You seriously haven't heard the accusations? Of the eligibility of innocent people being turned away because their name was crossed of because it was similar to the name of an ex-con? I can understand why I wouldn't have heard it, I was ten at the time, but...where do you live, man? How deep are you in politics? You seem like the kind of guy who goes for all the angles.
I did know about the ex-con can't vote thing, from the documentary that I mentioned (Jesus, I don't even know it's title). It also implied that it was an old law in Florida that had only been "reawakened" for this election.

There are many states that do not allow ex-cons to vote. That is the beauty of the US Constitution, states can set their own laws, especially in regards to voting. I will give you that some may have not been allowed to vote due to their name being similar to an ex-cons so the onus is on both parties to ensure, prior to an election, that the person wanting to vote is in fact eligible.

It sounds like you stepped into some sort of conspiracy theorist documentary about the 2000 election. Just like the conspiracy theorists claim 9-11 was a government plot to get us into war, there are those who say that the Republicans stole the election. I will agree that the 2000 election was a debacle and from my point of view, Gore took the low road and failed to bow out gracefully and accept defeat. The crap with the hanging chads notwithstanding, even the Supreme Court pretty much told the Dems to get over it. And no, the Florida Constitution was not reawakened just for that election.

Take a look at your state's constitution or charter and see what it says in regards to voting and voting eligibility. You just might be surprised. Remember with the exception of Fox News, the other news outlets are liberal bastions of bias. Take everything you hear on the news with a grain of salt along with so called documentaries (especially those from Michael Moore). If something tells you to check it out yourself and cannot itself present solid arguments and facts, then it most likely is not true.

Which is why I think I deserve a cookie for being honest.
Heard about the 9/11 conspiracies though, didn't believe them for anything. Almost any modern day government is not going to sacrifice over 2,000 people to invade some enemy countries when they can simply lie in wait for someone at the opposing helm to screw up (i.e. Russia with Georgia).
I remember Gore. He didn't take losing too well. I'm glad it was Hilary facing Obama instead of him, even if I don't like her that much.

Actually, it is good that this thread was hijacked somewhat. I bet many others here did not know states were allowed to set their own laws in regards to elections.

As far as Obama or McCain, check out the thread in the R6 Off Topic forums.

WK I think this is what Savior2006 was talking about HERE (http://www.mefeedia.com/entry/steal-back-your-vote/11751410/) I heard about it a while back when I showed Tampini quite disgusting to be honest. There is a longer lecture that explains how the scam works, and they have proof of it, Mr rove sent his e-mails to georgebush.org a parody site rather then the official georgebush.com so he was sending all his sensitive scam information to them over 500 pages worth! Quite interesting stuff really, just hope my country isn't like that.

Absentee voting is how military members on deployment cast their votes. Conspiracy theorist video for sure.

Since I am not able to get to my normal polling place due to where I am at currently (600 miles from home), I also get to vote by absentee ballot.

No no no no...it wasn't that. It was a documentary that was actually serious. The issue I was making to White Knight was about the eligibility of innocent people in Florida being compromised because their names were similar to the names of ex-convicts who were not allowed to vote. Oversea voters had nothing to do with it. This is the first time I've seen that queer little video.
I still can't say what happened in Florida in 2000. The Republicans may have cheated and may not have. What I will say, is that George Bush has a lot to answer for in his eight year service, and I wouldn't be too surprised if Florida 2000 happens to be one of them. As far as I'm concerned, he's a dishonest character. McCain would be worlds better than him.
