Am I the only one?

22 posts in this topic

No. I know which way I'm leaning, but I'm not 100% committed yet. I really need an unbiased, even-keeled breakdown of where each candidate stands on each issue.

Their websites have all their positions, thats the closest you'll get to unbiased. At this point, any media you look at is going to have a bias. It will either be "Obama is going to raise taxes" or "Obama is going to lower taxes on 95% of taxpayers." Your best bet is to read what they want to do and consider the possibility of Congress actually passing it.

Satty's post is rubbing the wrong way. It is out of bounds for this thread.

In what way is that out of bounds? Z made a statement, I made a suggestion based on that statement. Are you angry I didn't give equal time to both parties? Would you feel better if I added an example of the way two separate media entities might look at a McCain position as well? I can always edit it.

You're steering. This should be a neutral thread, that's all I'm suggesting.

I would visit some each canidates website and look at each issue. I am not getting political but my mind has been made up since Hillary got kicked out.

I don't feel like I need more information really, I just have to weigh the options a bit more.

And decide if I will be voting soley on principle or soley on pragmatism.

There is no candidate which provides both.

How's this... I'm not sure who I will vote for, but I know who I'm not voting for. *nods*

There are several ways to interpret that.

Are you considering third party candidates?

I'm in the exact same boat, though I haven't read your posts in the political topics to know where you stand. I'm not happy with the names on the ballot, but I know who I will not vote for... unfortunately, I feel like I'm throwing my vote away if I don't vote for the person most likely to defeat those I will not vote for... the enemy of my enemy...

No vote cast is ever a vote thrown away if it represents what you believe.

Certainly.

A friend of mine is actually going for the write-in option. He's just too devoted to Hilary. He wishes to wear his Hilary mask and "got experience?" shirt while voting, as well. :P

I haven't really declared my position, but I'm sure who we both will not vote for are one in the same. Just ask Chris.

I'm willing to accept certain compromises in hope that certain things come or don't come to pass.

Now is not the time to switch to a non-dominant party if your beliefs are that strong. That switch should come at a time when you can support the minority-party and assist to make aggressive decisions in preparation of the next election. If you haven’t done so already, then you’ve waited to see what the two dominant parties were going to provide. We all get what we wait for.

Unfortunately for me, I had two people in mind (one for each major party) and neither made it to the ballot. Such is life.

I like your friend already and I haven't even met him. :smilewide:

Well, I have only voted for a major party candidate once - so that's not really at issue.

But, I have a bad feeling about the next few years and want to give this decision my full consideration.

I really believe it matters this go 'round.

Well, I'm different since I've only voted for major parties. Yes, I know I've become one of those who fuel a broken system. I really thought I didn't have to worry about it this election considering how the past several years have been... But, oh well, both parties have let me down… One more so than the other. Depending which one wins might determine if I decide to invest effort into endorsing another party that better represents my perspective.

Barring any significant developments, I think I've made my choice.
