Who is your favorite choice as President?

Some of you here are not even eligible to vote. However you could well be a politically opinionated and passionate about politics. Now that the choices for the next president is narrowing down, it would be interesting to know your own favorite?

Vote for the least of all evils or write a vote in - don't sit it out.

Too many people have fought and died for your right to vote.

Obama's my homeboy.

I had someone try to turn me on to Ron Paul because he's so anti-war so I read up on him. I don't agree with most of what I had read. A few of the issues gay marriage and abortion he said he'd leave up to the states. That's a cop out. I'd like to know his opinion.

I wish. Unfortunately the majority of Americans are way to used to the Government being a huge, all-knowing, all-seeing bureaucracy and are far too afraid to give him a snowball's chance in Hades.

Let's see, vote for someone I despise just for the sake of doing it or waste my time and gas going to write in a person that has a zero percent chance of winning.

No thanks.

I'm not giving my vote away because it's too important. I'm done holding my nose and voting for the lesser of evils. To me that's far more insulting than sitting out the election.

I'm not the only one protesting this way either, I talk to people every day that are sick of the two party system and sick of the DNC and GOP strong arming everyone... then giving us crumby candidates.

It's actually not a cop-out, it's a throwback to the ideals of the Founding Fathers. They wanted the majority of things that affected our lives on a regular basis to be decided by the states. This huge central government was exactly the type of government they were trying to avoid when they instituted a federal system.

I personally like the idea of having the states decide issues like abortion and drug policy. That way, you can not only more easily sway your local politicians, but you can also have the option of moving to a state whose laws are in line with your ideals. It also gets rid of the stupid abortion debate that the left and right are constantly fighting about. And the best part is that you don't have some right-wing fanatic or some left-wing hippy imposing his/her moral code on the entire country.

Tharmsen, if you're so fed up with the two party system, then why don't you go and do something about it instead of just whining about how the system is so corrupt? It's easy to complain when looking from the outside. If it's really that big of an issue, then get involved, get into the system, for change is best achieved from within.

Right, because total and complete apathy is definitely going to fix that.
