I have come to the conclusion that I will never vote for a Republican again.
Of course, I decided that about Dems a long, long time ago.

Now my first inclination was to just not vote but then the fuckers would win. While they would lose my vote it, my opinion would not counted along with my vote. Now I am far too ornery to let the bastards win so tell me which party you think I should vote for and why.

You may sway others as well so give me a good pitch.
Link Posted: 3/17/2006 7:10:48 PM EDT
No pitch, no party.

I vote my concience. Sometimes "R", sometimes "D", and very often "L".

God how I wish Ron Paul represented Wisconsin.
Link Posted: 3/17/2006 7:13:44 PM EDT
I often vote R, I haven't voted for a D in many, many moons. The majority of the L's are a little to radical for my tastes so if there's not an R I like or a C running I'll just write Ted Nugent in and go home.
Link Posted: 3/17/2006 7:17:45 PM EDT
R by default, not choice.

L or C is my preference

So everyone is too lazy, too apathetic or finds themselves stuck in the same conundrum?

Afterall, we are getting inot deep doodoo and no one seems to have the answers, nor does anyone seem willing to provide the leadership.

My personal opinion is that we are so far gone that only wiping the slate clean and starting over will solve any of the major issues that we are currently stuck with. However, since stareting the 3rd american revolution on my own seems a useless and unpalatable option, I would like to put some effort into building a party with more traditional values into a political powerhouse.

Repubs? Betrayal is not something I EVER forgive

Dems? Hahahahah

Libertarians? Their stance on the border and immigration is enough to keep me from ever voting for them.

Constitutionalists? Perhaps. A little preachy, heavy on the christian value thing but that is not all bad. Any reason not to vote for them or work for their Party?

I'll vote for a Republican President until a 3rd party can put up a viable cantidate.

I'm also going to vote for Rick Perry for governor of Texas and he is a Republican. He's a damn good one too! He's earned the respect of gun owners in this state by supporting every pro gun law that has come across his desk (including a law to allow Texans to carry pistols in their cars without a CHL) and he literally told the radical homosexuals that if they didn't like the laws in Texas that they should find another state more hospitable to their lifestyle (almost his exact words). I wish Rick Perry would run for President in 2008. I'd not only vote for him but I'd feel good about doing it.

I may be inclined to vote for a 3rd party for lower offices, but I can't really say any bad things about the Republicans here in Texas. They have moved gun rights forward, fought off the radical gay agenda and Jerrymandered the Demonrats almost completely out of business.

Yep, we got us a damn fine state here and the Republicans deserve some credit. Just too bad ain't no one built a wall on our side of the Rio Grande yet.

We live in a two party system. When you go outside the party to make a statement you are doing nothing more than blabbering into the wind. An outside vote is a wasted vote. IF you're not happy with the party you have a moral and ethical responsiblity to TRY to fix it. How many people here are committee persons? How many people are active with in their individual party?

You are wrong Patty. The currently entrenched power structure works not for the people but for special interests. The entire thing is so corrupt that it can no longer be fixed before I am rotting in the grave. I cannot, will not, accept that.

If I can get another party moving forward at this point I would consider it the greatest service I could do my nation other than overthrowing the current gov't by violent revolt.

It only works for the special interest because the majority of people do not work and support their party. Have you read the doctrine of the GOP? or any of these other parties you're flirting with? If you join a party that says you support the ideology of that system of Government. What is the ideology that you support? The current system does not necessarily reflect MY ideologies but I do contribute and speak out about what it should reflect. By merely voting third party all you're doing is giving up or even worse in. Makes me sick that a third party idiot was able to motivate our country into electing Bill Clinton. If you feel so strongly against the candidate the party picks AND you've done nothing to enlist better candidate you're a hypocrite.

If I can get another party moving forward at this point I would consider it the greatest service I could do my nation other than overthrowing the current gov't by violent revolt.

The difference between Bush and Kerry in 2004 and between Bush and Gore in 2000 was quite dramatic in my opinion.

In 2000 Gore wanted to institute a 1 gun per month program, a national gun registry, keep us in the International Criminal Court and expand the role of the US in UN "peacekeeping" missions. Bush opposed the ICC (pulled us out of it), opposed national gun registration, opposed additional gun control measures and lowered taxes.

In 2004 Kerry wanted to pull our troops out of Iraq, raise taxes, increase the SS tax, increase medicare (or medicaide or whatever) and increase the role of the UN in "combating" terrorism. Bush is staying the course in Iraq, has not raised taxes, has not cowtowed to the UN and appointed what appear to be 2 conservatives to SCOTUS.

Now don't get me wrong, I have problems with Bush. I'm not happy about the Prescription Drug Handout, I'm not happy about his police on immigration, I'm not happy about the $15 billion he has given to Africa to "fight" AIDS, I'm not happy about the hundreds of billions that he is pouring into the toilet that nature flushed and I am not happy about his voiced support for renewing the AWB. However, Bush has done good things for gun owners. He signed the law requiring information on NICS transactions to be destroyed within 24 hours of the transaction being completed (as opposed to the 90 days that they were retained previously) and he lobied for and got a pretty clean law to prevent frivilous lawsuits against gun makers. He's not everything that I had hoped for, but as a gun owner and a tax payer I can honestly say that I am better off today than I was 7 years ago.

I have not forgotten the Clinton days. The power of government was being used against Americans to a far greater extent than it is today and we were moving towards losing our national sovergienty at a very rapid pace. I never want to see another Bill Clinton in office. If that means accecpting another George W Bush than I will do it with some bitching. However, if that means accecpting a Ruddy or a McCain then I agree that there is no difference between the Republicrats or the Demicans.
Link Posted: 3/17/2006 8:40:58 PM EDT
The borders issue has always been a bit of a joke, since all the serious candidates disavow it.

With all the disenfranchised paleoconservatives and so on fleeing the GOP there's a lot of new, more mainstream blood in the party recently.

Borders is one of the issues where there is a drive to change the platform this year, basically the platform comittee wants to bring the platform into strict compliance with the constitution, the party membership will get a vote on that subject, I am hopeful because it would solve several problems I have with the platform myself.

So long as the LP is the only party seriously talking about monetary reform it will be the party I'm rooting for, that's the cause IMO, everything else is just effect.

I don't hold much hope for a peaceful restoration of the republic, or even a violent one. The population is too ignorant of the real issues, by design, and there aren't any solutions that don't involve pain. Politicians don't get elected by telling people the truth, but activism beats bitchin and moanin.

Nah, bro, you are wrong. Okay, not so much wrong as Incomplete. The entrenched power structure is party blind. What you spend your precious vote on is the Almighty Issue. It might be more than one issue, but most folks feel very strongly about a single issue. The Demos and Repubs and Liberts and Constitutes are all pretty much the same, but how each individually deals with Your Issue is what counts.

I will absolutely NEVER vote for a liberal, democrat or other candidate who is anti-gun. Never. Regardless of their views on ANY other topic or the views of their opponents on any other topic. If a candidate is anti-Second Amendment, they are dirt. I will always vote the pro-2nd candidate. I might make an exception if they're a radical extremist or fascist, but thats about it.

Where does that leave me? Well, lets see, which party'ss candidates are against a literal interpretation of the second amendment in general. Why, its the Democrats! Guess I know where my vote is going. Don't vote against your rights. Don't vote for the most bigoted and intolerant bunch of bastards to come down the pike since Adolph and Company.

What they are, what they promote, what they do not seek to remedy, make them fascists.

fascism is an economic model, like socialism, communism or capitalism, but none fit the current GOPs policies so well as fascism. I've already explained why they're not capitalists, despite all their protestations to the contrary.

They are not however, Fascists, the proper noun signifying party membership in specific fascist parties, of which there are so few in history that it's practically synonymous with Nazism.

The great irony in this arguement is I completely understand your position, fascism has become synonymous with Nazism, and that is the great tragedy of the situation. If we cannot recognize fascism when it is so blatantly staring us in the face, because it doesn't look like Nazism, then what are we to do?

If I offend your sensibilities by using accurate terminology, rest assured I myself am far more offended when fascists are inaccurately described as capitalists.

I hate to throw off negative vibs here, but most of the time I'm voting AGAINST a candidate by voting for his opponent than actually voting FOR a candidate. The whole lesser of 2 evils thing. Sounds depressing, but it's all that I've got to offer in the way of advice.

It was an easy statement to make, having a majority on his side. He knew it would never cross his desk. Its been pretty clearly demonstrated that President Bush made sure this bill would not survive. Being a savvy politician, however, Mr. Bush knows you make political hay while the sun shines. He could have said "If the AWB crosses my desk I'll declare that the moon is made of Green Cheese". It would have carried the same weight.

In one of his first major policy changes from the abortive Klinton regime, GW's Justice Department formally announced that the Second Amendment constituted an individual right. Not our friend? I believe you need to rethink this position.
Link Posted: 3/17/2006 9:56:38 PM EDT
I'm a registered republican, because I can occasionally throw a vote to the better choice in a primary that way (can only vote in the primaries if you're registered in this state)

So don't take my comments as directed at anyone in particular.

I vote republican when I can, when the candidate doesn't preclude it by word or deed which make it impossible for me to cast a vote for them in good conscience, which gets rarer every election it seems, both as the party veers farther and farther from the constitutional republican values I hold and as my own political understanding grows through study and reflection and I realize they've been lying (or just wrong) all along.

I vote Libertarian when I can, when I determine that vote won't throw the election to the greater of evils or when there is no acceptable mainstream candidate with a chance to win, and once I even helped get one elected in a local race.

The lesser of evils arguement is largely false however, in a two party system the vote is always nearly equally split, and if it is not one party or the other will change something to make it so.

All the lesser of evils arguement does is give license to that party to be as evil as it wants so long as it's not quite so evil as the greater, and even then they have propaganda tools to ensure you believe the greater evil really is.

That is the path into the abyss.

It was an easy statement to make, having a majority on his side. He knew it would never cross his desk. Its been pretty clearly demonstrated that President Bush made sure this bill would not survive.


Clearly demonstrated by whom?
And where?

I have seen no proof of that at all.
I remember what his father did and the kid is the same in most other ways from what I can see.
I'll tell you this, if the AWBan had no sunset do you think he would have fought to repeal it? Yeah, that's my thought on it also.

He still stood there and said he would knowingly violate the Const of the United States.

Seems like anymore, everyone on this site just whines about high gas prices and some vague, unclear ramblings about "special interest" boogeymen. Go ahead and vote 3rd party...Ross Perot worked out great, didn't he?



I'm going to. Either that or not at all. I am not voting for more of this Republican bullshit. 30 years of voting for them. Piss on 'em.

Nah, bro, you are wrong. Okay, not so much wrong as Incomplete. The entrenched power structure is party blind. What you spend your precious vote on is the Almighty Issue. It might be more than one issue, but most folks feel very strongly about a single issue. The Demos and Repubs and Liberts and Constitutes are all pretty much the same, but how each individually deals with Your Issue is what counts.

I will absolutely NEVER vote for a liberal, democrat or other candidate who is anti-gun. Never. Regardless of their views on ANY other topic or the views of their opponents on any other topic. If a candidate is anti-Second Amendment, they are dirt. I will always vote the pro-2nd candidate. I might make an exception if they're a radical extremist or fascist, but thats about it.

Where does that leave me? Well, lets see, which party'ss candidates are against a literal interpretation of the second amendment in general. Why, its the Democrats! Guess I know where my vote is going. Don't vote against your rights. Don't vote for the most bigoted and intolerant bunch of bastards to come down the pike since Adolph and Company.



The 2nd is very important to me.

So is:
Border/illegals
fiscal responsibility and smaller fed
entitlements have got to go

The last poster talked about how great and poweful and rich we are....I must live in the Land of Oz....
We are, of course, but what we are doing now is going to be terribly costly in the end. Socially, geopolitically, economically, etc. Where this country seems headed now is not somewhere I want to go, not something I want for my kids and grandkids. The politicians have fucked us and GWB as much as any of them. And all the while the rest of the Repubs march in lockstep. To hell with them.

Making moral statements brought the assault weapons ban and "don't ask, don't tell." Voting third party might make you feel like roses, kittens and sunshine inside...but in truth, it empowers the morons.

Please, don't empower the morons...

Vote Republican. Work hard to make them reign in the immigration.



Reign it in???
Bud, have you been paying ANY attention at all.


Quit hoping for a revolution that you know damned well could not be won.


Hell yes, it could be won.
But even if it can't it might be worth it.

The morons are bleeding the rest of us dry as it is.
Let them run the whole fucking thing into the ground and then see where they are at. I am dead serious. They can fucking starve and we'll all be better off. Them included.

That's exactly, and I mean word for word, what they said in the eighties when Japan was gonna buy New York and California. Remember? Our whole country was gonna be a suburb of Tokyo because the politicians were "running us into the ground."

Quite relying on the lamestream media. All their predictions and reports will be fun to read five years from now when your stocks are worth more, the U.S. is more powerful abroad, and the R's are still in power.
