OK, counting MY vote, we're at a 50-50 race between McCain and Kucinich.

Why no Libertarian candidate on the poll?

I tried to get as many as I could. I'll try to make the next one more comprehensive. We could have a playoff...

McCaine seems a better choice, to me at least.

Mmmmmm. Maybe we're on to something with this Mcaine thing. Get him to run in 2008 you republican fools! Then I can stop bashing your candidate.

Heh heh

Don't feel bad Patriot. There are other people at the flag that caught being wrong would try and argue a way out. At least you're man enough to admit you're wrong laugh and move on.

By the way your posts are getting better - more thought, less spittle, and flailing. Keep it up. It's obvious that though we may disagree on some things you do love your country.

Try visiting the shooting range sometime. You might enjoy it.

What I don't understand is how the republicans could have choosen Bush over McCaine in the first place. What were they thinking??? Here we have a guy who was a Vietnam Vet/POW/War Hero, whose very intelligent, very dignified, very politically apt, and a guy who has just as many democratic faithful as republican faithful. But instead they went with the Texas National Gaurd A.W.O.L-er, binge drinker, father-fighter, born-again Christian, dyslexic, guy who makes fun of people that he puts to death. I mean give me a clue here people...what were you thinking!?!

I think I may have been out of country during the last elections, but I wouldn't have voted Bush, or Gore for that matter.

McCain lost because of character assasination, and the insinuation that McCain's time as a POW somehow mentally unhinged him. Top it off with the fact that Bush panders to the born againsd and you have a really shitty 2000 republican primary.

Incidentally, the 2000 primamry is the reason I refuse to formally allif=gn myself with the Republican party (maybe I carry a grudge!?)

I just don't see how any reasonable person could have believed that bull-shit character assassination (not saying you believed it). Personally I'd vote for McCaine before I would vote for Kerry.

WASHINGTON, DC—As President Bush's public-approval ratings hit an all-time low, Vice-President Dick Cheney announced Monday that he has been "forced" to throw his hat into the ring for the 2004 presidential race.

Patriot, probably because they knew that Bush would just be a puppet for the Cheneys/Rumsfeld/Wolffowitz clan. They knew they could control that dumb bastard.
