Every election year.
Every single one.
The same people come out and say "if you support Candidate A, you're drinking the kool-aid"
Please drop that ignorant statement.
The idea of an election is to support a candidate with whom you agree with.
you do not have to support someone 100% in order to admire them and agree with them.
My support of Obama comes from his voting record.
Not what i see in the news.
I did not support barack obama before my ATS membership was created, despite what a few around here will tell you.
A lot of us support Obama because we like what he's offering.
Will he deliver?
Not 100%, im sure of it. But even if he delivers 87.29392% of what he's talking about - its certainly more and better for us all, than having John
McCain in office.
Are there other candidates? Sure. You can write-in whoever you want.
But i don't want to write in.
Writing in a candidate is an optin - just not one for me. So whats wrong with that/
Are you saying if i don't support your racist, bigoted, homophobic candidate (mccain) that im drinking the kool-aid?
personally - if you don't own a big business, or pump oil yourself, i don't see how a normal person could ever vote for someone the likes of
i learned my less by voting for bush in 2000
won't ever do it again. I used to think big business was the answer to this countries problems.
Then i realized.
A person who owns big business is never satisfied with what they have. They always want more.
The only way to get more is to screw over a few more people.
Big businesses greed has put us where we are today in a crap economy.
Thats why im voting for Obama.
He represents change, and im sorry, but i really don't care if you can show me he flip flopped a few times.
If you choose not to vote for someone on the grounds of imperfection - then perhaps politics isnt something you should invest time into.
