For example, I don’t care for Bush (the man, not the geography) for a list of reasons different from all the press-propaganda-babble, Kerry sems to represent extreme liberalsim, something which has undermined Jeffersonian Politics (which I beleive is what America was supposed to have been) more than Hamilton ever could have. I’m worried he’s in the same league as wackos like Ted Kennedy, and we’d be replacing one wacko with another. And at least I know where the current wacko stands for the most part.
However, I may not vote Libertarian, although I “test out” as one and did actively help them get them on the ballot by gathering petitions this year.
I’d have voted for you … maybe in 2002.
If abstaining from voting is not an act of apathy, but of protest, then God Bless America you have that choice, and I can respect that. Remember, voting was required in Communist Russia and many other oppressive states.
