I mean, like, the kinds of people that bash both Barack Obama and John McCain just because their guy/gal is out of the primaries. I'm getting tired of hearing 3rd parties bash Barack Obama and I'm getting tired of Hillary Clinton supporters who loved her want to go and vote for John McCain as a protest vote. Who do you think is worse?

I think the worst of all are people who vote for the "lesser of two evils" instead of using the option available to them, to write in a candidate they truely believe in.

writing in a canidate doesnt work in many states .. Now as for who is worst.. well i have to say I'm a Ron Paul supporter and Chuck Baldwin supports many of Ron Paul's issues and will appoint Ron Paul as head of the treasury.. And Ron Paul Endorsed him.. so I'm voting Chuck Baldwin.

Im still supporting my candidate and getting him into a office where he can make good changes.

Honestly if you cant see the total biased media just rams those two canidates down everyones throats your absolutly bilnd there are tons of other canidates and parties out there but there never in debates there never interveied etc..

Wake up whos the worst , the "McBama" supporters are the worst becuase there total sheeple, they don't think and they accept the lesser of two evils with no questions asked.

Honesty didnt the democraticly controled senate show there in bed with all of the republicans with all the bills they passed that were directly inline with bush.. They had chances to not fund the war but did with flying colors.. the republicans could have stopped the bail out bill but didnt,

Its just one big party controlling everything, they just have different "clicks" that they hang out with. ALl they do is grow government bigger and bigger.

I'm not a sheeple. I just think that we need a Democratic President in office to counter the last 8 years so we can get economic growth.

I think after the next 8 years I will try to be more open minded about who I vote for the Presidency.

At this point in American history, there are no real differences between the two main parties. The purpose of having two...is strictly to divide and conquer the people. A vote for either parties candidate, is a vote for buisness as usual.

You might want to actually listen to what he has to say!

My God he is an honest man! Just because he does not play the game like the others is why he is not in this election. Honestly i kind of wish he would conform and just get into office then do what he wants.

Ron Paul is an American Hero...do some research before you sub a post like this!

Good question. I'm not so sure myself.

There is a huge difference between the parties. They may be pushing for the same global agenda but they would reach their through different ways. The right approaches more of a religious approach to politics and more of a policy based on morals and has tended to be less favoring to liberal economic policies, or, changes in the current way of doing things, and, they have been more confrontational with enemies. We haven't seen that many Democratic Presidents IMO, so, we don't really know what they would do, if they were in the white house. I mean, Bill Clinton was great, but, we don't know how a Democratic President would initiate Liberal policies in the Whitehouse. I'm actually fairly liberal leaning myself, so, I view the Democratic party as a better alternative, of a party, which would listen to my views. I'm waiting until a 3rd party gets enough support before I vote for 3rd party. I don't want to waste my vote.

I listen to what he has to say I just don't like the actions his supporters are taking. I think to change the system you must work within the system and that's what Ron Paul supporters should do.

The only difference is the lies they tell to get elected. Once they do get elected, it's buisness as usual.

To me, who I think is worse is those that would belittle another person's support for whatever candidate they choose to support. Hey, you can like Obama, I don't think you are somehow deranged for that. I can like McCain and not be a Nazi supporter as well.

Lord help us if this is the kind of reaching across the aisle we can expect.

And the real funny thing is ..... if you look at it, Ron Paul was more right about the economy than either major party. Say what you will about the man, he really does have some good points.

Why can't Hilliary supporters be PO'ed that even though their candidate got almost as many popular votes that she wasn't even considered as a running mate? Talk about being disenfranchised.

I'm reading about ideologies in my American Government class in college. Republicans are right leaning... they tend to be conservative... Democrats are fairly liberal... left leaning. So, my guess is that they'll change the tone in Washington from a Republican dialogue on issues to an approach FDR would take on dealing with Washington. Republicans champion themselves with Ronald Reagon, but, Democrats, champion themselves on FDR as their party hero. That's just my $.02.

Ron Paul supporters are the worst -- how dare people band together for a common and continue to support a man who had been totally right about the economic collapse! The nerve of some people, sheesh.

You clearly knew what I meant.
I can tell the sarcasm in your post.

I think they should have done a better job at getting more people to vote for him. I mean, they should have been more serious in attacking John McCain.

Your exactly right , look at the dems supporting Bush's budgets etc.. they had the chance to kill this war dead by not funding it.. they failed 2 times..

It's the single republicrat party.. they look divided but are the same, its like counting cards in poker, two people work the table, they both seem independent but there working together.

If people cant see this that's because they don't watch them , you look at cspan live coverage and there is all this back slapping and chuckling etc between parties, it's just sad, there are very few like Ron Paul and Kercinich that actually speak out and try to change things.

Personally, I think we should put these people that have been right, will be right, and continue to be right on a desert island. I'm tired of hearing it!!

So we Neocons and Libs can continue get together to loot the Treasury, bail-out Wall Street, and continue our WELFARE WARFARE STATE. We certainly don't need anybody speaking any sense, cramping our style...

Just hoping you caught my sarcasm...as I have caught yours

You are actually paying hundreds of dollars to be told that Republicans are right leaning conservatives and Democrats are left leaning liberals?????? What a great learning experience that class must be, I would ask for my money back if I were you. I would expect a much better class than that for my money.

Just my opinion,

I know the truth about the government
, I know it's all just about money and getting reelected, I'm not a sheep. I'm taking it as part of my major (I'm going into political science). I was just bringing up that point to talk about the differences between the approaches of the two party system. That's not to say they're not pulled by strings of some people that are super powerful long standing members of the government.
