Tried to vote for Ron Paul today, but I can't vote because I don't belong to either of the two major parties.

Note I didn't actually say I VOTED for him, so much as I support him.

Yeah that sucks. Had the same ordeal, Louisiana doesn't have open caucuses.

I want to hurt you, severely.

I wanted Gravel and Paul to make it, but of course, they are both dead last. Times like this I realize more and more that this country's politics suck ass. ;/

At least Obama is winning now, which is much better than Hillary.

EDIT: fuck, that reply was for Pipes Clangor... oops

You're kidding, right? He's like GWB part II. Sequels may not be as scary, but they're usually worse.

Honestly, I can't decide between the three remaining choices, I think they'd all be good presidents. I might lean a bit away from Obama -- his speeches are vague and he's not very experienced. I'm almost thinking I'll vote McCain in November.

P.S. Maybe Huckabee was hilarious on SNL, I'll give him that.

McCain has approved everything bush has done except that he wouldn't have spent so much if he was in Bush's place.

Aside from being members of the Republican party, McCain and Bush have very little in common. This was clear back in 2000 when they competed for the nomination. McCain is forced to adopt the party's staple positions (abortion, tax cuts, etc.) if he wants a chance to be elected, but his emphasis has always been on government reform (e.g. campaign finance reform). The reason he has appeal on the left is that he deemphasizes social conservatism and supports things like stem cell research.

The key issue on which he has sided with Bush is the continuation of the Iraq war. If he doesn't get elected (and I doubt he will), then this will likely be the main reason. Honestly, I don't know right now whether continuing the war is a good idea, but I trust McCain's judgement and experience far more than either Obama's or Bush's. I never supported starting the war, but now that we're there, we have to do what we can to make sure we don't leave the country in shambles.

With a Republican congress I'd be more wary of voting in a Republican president, but with things as they are I think McCain would be a good fit.
