As a fellow voter for the Liberitarian party; I want to thank you for your effort. Pleasantries aside...
You're right. I *might* have leaned towards democrats if they gave me a better option. When the primaries decided in favor of Kerry, I really got
angry because I could never understand how a guy who was viewed as a zero in the eyes of his own people (in terms of votes) rose from null popularity
In some ways, this looks like some kind of a set up. Especially since Bush and Kerry both went to that same god forsaken secret society at Yale, Skull
and Bones. That might mean nothing to some, but that means a lot to me.
The DNC endorsed this guy, despite his credibility issues, his shady past (like the investigation he lead on the BCCI scandal), and his Gore-like
charisma. There were much better options, like Kucinich, and yes, Gephardt.
They sort of did the same thing with Bush back in 2000, when the obvious winner was going to be McCain... until he withdrew. But it had the opposite
The faults of this shoddy election lie in many different directions, but one finger is definitely pointed at the DNC's decision to appoint Kerry as
their man to run against Bush.
