It's Time To Vote

The fireblades version of the US election. Call it a poll if you like but lets get the ball rolling and see who is going to win this race. Vote in our poll and by all means state your reasons in this thread. Anyone can vote as the result of this election has global implications.

Re: It's Time To Vote

I haven't really made up my mind yet.. McCain is old, and has been in Washington for I think 30 years, I think most people want a change in Washington, out with all the "old school",politicians.. Iam concerned with Obamas lack of experience, his foreign policy experience is very little. But he is a fresh face and very intelligent, and it seems like more Americans can relate to him vs McCain. I'm still up in the air..

Re: It's Time To Vote

Is it important that McCAin should be at least computer literate? Does that point indicate that he is somewhat out of touch with the modern world?

The Ovine Party will steal less than anyone else you elect (despite being left out) the rest all suck to a high degree.

Re: It's Time To Vote

Its not that he chooses not to use computers. He simply can't due to what they did to him in the pow camp. His arms got mangled. And I don't like the fact that Obama is nothing more than a democratic party puppet with no good ideas.

Re: It's Time To Vote

I'm favoring voting for None of the above at this point!!! You cant ask people to vote for the lesser of two evils.

350 million people in the US and these are the best candidates we can find that are willing to take the job!!!

Re: It's Time To Vote

Its not that the system is broken, but that it cannot evolve fast enough to keep up with the times.

Re: It's Time To Vote

The system is in fine fettle. It's just doing what a "select few" want it to do. Go ahead vote for "riding your bike instead. It probably won't make the blindest bit of difference

And with respect Stick, I've seen people with no arms finding a way to use a computer. McCain just plain can't or can't be bothered.

Well, the UK had a choice. We could have maintained focus on Asia and gone into the EU in full. Guess we trust the US more than the French and the Germans... Oh, and we refused to lose the pound and pints!

Oh and I forgot to say that we also refused to let them rule us from Europe. That was definitely a no no for me!

Re: It's Time To Vote

Yep, nationalism sometimes has its down sides. Frankly, it has nothing to do anymore in today's societies.
Personally I find it funny for people to say I don't like this or that country. I just mention soccer and how poor some nations perform.
Economy is the new battlefield. All that counts is money and wealth - the more the better.
