What the fuck is wrong with you Floridians?
Why why why why why did you re-elect that piece of shit Bush? I thought watching him make a mockery of your votes 2 year ago would have been enough to get rid of him... and I've heard hasn't exactly been a wonderful governor besides.
Why why why?

And if you live in Virginia and Voted for John Warner... shame on you.

The green party candidate running for the House against the Republican incumbent (a man who didn't run ads, have big money backers, and little widespread campaigning in the most accepted current mediums) got 17% of the vote.
So he lost really badly... but he got 17% of the vote.

The chick I voted for... got 9%..
The wacko libertarian didn't get enough to end up on the screen.
and that's as it should be.

I'm all for diversity in politics. But I'm not for someone who believes in the repeal of all gun control, the dissolving of public schools, and the eventual dismantling of *all* government in favor of private sector sponsorship of social programs.
Picture it... Welfare! Brought to you by Pepsi!

Well, yeah. Hampton Roads will throw money and votes at anyone who gives good mouth about military spending. "Fuck the rest of the world, someone in my family is in the military. So military spending is good!" It's such a pathetically tiny world view and it's just so pervasive here.

Still happy that the green got 17% of the vote. It's piddly... but it's *something*..

no one ran against Warner. i actually nearly cried in the voting booth. i walked out of it after voting and told the voting guy that it takes awhile when you are faced with no choice.

but even better - my BS wrote in "Elizabeth Taylor" instead of Warner. clearly, no one was going to beat Warner, so at least he was clever enough to find the one person who probably did (albeit in an earlier time.)

No democrats ran against him. SO yeah ... might as well have been no one as third parties aren't really a recognized part of the political process yet.
An independent and a libertarian have no freaking hope against John Warner... squeaky clean good ol boy.
I really really really dislike that guy.
Really.

well, i'd rather a libertarian who isn't busy trying to spend my hard earned money than well...most anyone.

(although in fairness, i'm not a hardline lib, i think they are nutjobs, but i do believe in alot of the principles. gov't = beauracracy = extreme ineffiecieny)

and i voted for a guy who's job title on the ballet: ferret legalization coordinator...

I can't in good conscience vote for a party line *anyone*... they're all nutjobs. Party-line Libs freak me the hell out becuase I've heard militiamen with softer feelings toward some of the issues.

I can understand, appreciate and agree with a lot of the idealogy behind libertarianism. I just don't think that no gun laws+ no public education +no government *period* is a recipe for a healthy, happy, strong country.
Of course, I don't know what *is* a recipe for that sort of thing.
heh.

Re:
i'm not sure of the recipe myself, but i'm pretty sure it involves ferrets.

and lasers. but i'm a little biased.

although i bet the Alicia World Order (AWO) would go along way in fixing the problems.

Not that I wouldn't anyway, but if laser ferrets are part of the platform, I'm certainly voting for the AWO!
