PostSubject: Countdown to the Election   Wed Oct 29, 2008 1:34 am

This time next week we'll be finding out the 44th President of the US. I've decided to make a countdown thread to post updates, poll results, whatever.

I'm just pumped for the most historic election ever.

You could be like my mom and not vote for anyone. Last election she refuses to say she voted for Bush. She voted against Kerry, haha.

I actually have to write a persuasive essay about the election (fuck, I hate sharing my political views!) and I told all my friends that instead of writing for Obama I'm writing against McCain.


And just so you know, I drew out of hat which candidate to "support". I don't like either of them and am perfectly fine writing against either.

Well I know I don't want McCain in office mostly because of Palin. I'm just wonderign if I should vote for Nader or Obama.

I thought that, too, at first. I wound up voting for McCain in the school election, even though I had been intending to vote for Obama since May.

Honestly, the chances of McCain dying and leaving us with Palin as president are slim to none. He's old. But Ronald Reagan was older than McCain when he started his second term, and he just died a few years ago. McCain's mother is about 95, I think? He's got a good pedigree.

Anyway, not trying to sway your vote, just saying. Uh, vote for Obama. I hate to say it, but Nader's pretty much a wasted vote.

It's ageism, and I consider that just as bad as racism and sexism. If somebody said, "Obama's too black to run for preisdent," it'd be all over the news and the liberals would be screaming bloody murder. But everyone seems to ignore the fact that the liberals are discriminating against McCain on the basis of age. Don't even try to tell me that's 'not as bad as racism'. It damn well is.

Erin, remind me again why you so quickly switched all your political beliefs?

Because I read the voter guide that came with my newspaper on Sunday and watched the news and decided that I liked John McCain more. Socially, yes, I'm pretty liberal, but I'm very conservative fiscally, and that's what mattered most to me in this election. I think part of me just wanted to vote for Obama because it was 'cool'.

Don't take what I'm saying the wrong way, but are you for McCain because you like him and his goals, or because you are a republican? Because the way you've been wording it around the boards make it sound like you are only for him because you are republican.

It makes me feel really stupid because I have no clue about anything to do with American politics.

I do follow Canadian politics, though!

I don't really understand why you're asking that question. I just said I was voting for Obama until the other day when I read the voter guide.

So, yes, it's because I like his views and his goals. If I was voting for him because I was a Republican, I would have supported him from the start.

As I said, it's not just what you answered me right now, it's also how you've worded it other times.

I'm not trying to be a pesty bitch, Erin. I was just curious.

There's so much to explain. Democrats are usually pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, they support tighter gun control laws, they're against the war in Iraq, they don't mind welfare, they think that the death penalty is a violation of human rights, etc. A Republican is, more likely than not, anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, they believe that we have a right to bear arms, they're against welfare, they're pro-death penalty, and they support the War in Iraq. If you're still interested after this crap explanation, look on Wikipedia.
