I Voted Today

There was only one Libertarian candidate running in any race, which is disappointing. I am surprised that in a state as weird as Florida that there isn't a much stronger Libertarian Party.

Only Republicans and Democrats had party affiliation listed. But I researched everyone running and came up with a single self-avowed libertarian (or Libertarian).

Sad to say that as angry as we are at the status quo, we are afraid of "wasting" our vote at the polls. We are pretty sure it's gonna be the Democrat or the Republican, so we settle for less than what we truly believe in necessary.

I for one will not vote for an incumbent this time around. I'm not excited at the prospect of a Democratic majority in the Congress, but there is going to have to be a substantial turn-over in the Congress before the rest will take the voters seriously.

I'm disappointed with the Florida races, too. I don't feel comfortable voting for anyone who is running.

That's why I'm voting for Cthulhu in 2008, Vicki. I figure, why settle for the lesser of two evils?

John, I appreciate your views and your vote for libertarians I value my vote to much to waste it on third party candidates. The last major third party candidate was Ross Perot unless you count Nader.So what happened when masses of people voted for Perot they ended up electing someone further removed from their own veiw points.While the lesser of two evils isn't the optimum way to choose it's still less evil.

Hmmm...never heard of Cthulhu until I googled it. That's very interesting...almost enough to give me nightmares! In fact, that's right up there with those zombies. *shiver*
