It is pure insanity to exhaust any energy disproving the "other" candidate.

We have seen the 2000 Bush campaign say anything to get elected into office, why would this be any different. And we have seen Democrats lie about the facts.

To exert effort into such threads claiming one is ignorant or a hypocrite is Irony. We all been ignorant or a hypocrite at some point in our lives.

Of course, these are bigger issues, and thus bigger responsibilities. Therefore, if you are going to pick a candidate and refuse to abstain, pick the candidate that resonates with the least BS, and carries the heart of the citizens, not the corporations.

Or, you could do the smart thing, and vote for the president who you think will do what's best for the country, which isn't always what the people, or the corporations, want.

Things would be a lot different if people were to vote that way, instead of voting for who looks better, who talks better, who's a member of this party or that party.

When I first read the thread title, I thought you meant REAL puppets (you know, like Kermit The Frog)

I just found my new catch phrase when people bring up any election. "Oh, look. Puppet#1 is beating/losing to Puppet#2!"

Thank you!

Barack Obama

On the same note, if you are going to have to choose on criteria of "no BS" you should abstain every election until your death from old old age.

I, personally, have found it much more gratifying to pick a candidate which who's form of BS best suits ME.

Could be selfish - probably is.

But thats how i choose to vote

They ALL BS.
Just gota figure out which flavor of excrement you like - and sink your teeth in.

Whos with me to get this non-sense off ATS?

Yes, I agree with you that paparazzi type threads should not be posted on here about either candidate. And yes, both are puppets. Obama is a puppet of the MSM and extreme left wingers and McCain, well, not sure but how did he pull off that miraculous comeback in Florida when every expert said he was finished? *cough* Strings pulled *cough* But as you stated in the OP, you gotta pick the one that you think believes the most what he is saying, how rational it is, and whether or not it suits you. Either one though is just a tool.

I agree with everything you've said my "space-travel agent", (for the most part)


I have a bone to pick with the verbal descriptions used. In today's more politically correct charged environment the proper terms more appropriate to use are as follows:

Afro-American Douche bag #1 is beating, Warmonger-American Douche bag #2...
