I think you should consider voting third party, and here's why....
You seem pretty torn between the 2 main candidates, which tells me that you aren't gonna be too upset with whichever one gets picked anyways, so why
waste a vote in either direction? The third parties need your support; by voting and bringing attention to the third parties, and their issues your
vote actually counts for something. I have a thread going here
where Ron Paul talks
about uniting the four main third parties on 4 key positions, and using what little voice the third parties have to be heard. If you agree with the
following 4 positions I strongly suggest you give this some consideration.
1. Bring home the troops
2. Protect or civil liberties, aka repealing the Patriot Act
3. Investigate the Federal Reserve
4. Balance the federal budget
Remember, the third parties don't have to win, they just need enough of a voice to be taken seriously and get the four points they agree on to be
taken seriously by the 2 main candidates and the media.
I think it's a vote for something, rather than just another celeb politician.
PS: Interesting idea over there in Holland, I bet that really makes the public take more of an interest and participate.
