    This is a mock Election or a simple simulation.

    I'm just curious as to the results. As a result of this being a quasi-simulation: US voters ONLY please.

    I'm sure some of the people elsewhere on the board that are overseas would like to say a few things, and they are free to do so, but please do not throw off the stats, I'll put a "I am not a US Citizen" option for you all.

    I'll be dealing only with the top 6 candidates:
    Republican
    Democrat
    Constitutional
    Libertarian
    Green
    Independent

    EDIT: I have linked the parties to their websites. Also, if you want to "write in a candidate" Please feel free to do so.

    Wow! It's 100% Republican! (Somehow I don't think that's going to last long.) ;)

    I sent in my absentee ballot about a month ago. I'm so happy I was able to avoid all the hassle and bullshit of having to go the polls to vote.

    I am a registered Republican ...ducks from all the rotten tomato projectiles...

    That said, I have developed a passionate allegiance to the Obama/Biden ticket. For the first time in my life (sadly) I have feverishly delved into every story that concerns me. I've read FOX... MSNBC...CNN... - but I didn't stop there. I dug deep to find the truth behind the spectacular headlines concerning both candidates - as I am keenly aware that the political machine spins all data toward their respective persuasion.

    Wanna talk "Maverick"? LMAO - Remember - I have two kids who are 'lifers' in the military. I've been brought up in the 'church' - being a leader to some capacity in a very , VERY large congregation here. (Everyone knows that GAWD is a Republican, right?) :lol

    Tomorrow, at 5:15 AM, I will be standing in line for .... hours? - who knows... to vote for Obama. But I'll gladly do it, because for once - someone has attempted (and succeeded) to run a clean campaign based on what he plans to do. His plans are credible and workable, as is his character. And remember, I RESEARCHED - I didn't just read some journalist's headlines.

    As a student of economics ... I have to state that Obama's tax and spending plans horrify me. If you want to know specifics, PM me and I can link you to papers. I won't take this full discussion out onto the forums.

    A student? But veteran economists even the the republican side say that Obama's plan will help the economy. :?


    Don't forget to vote, free hugs to those who vote.

    And by veteran you mean who? Paul Krugman? He wouldn't know stable policy if it reared up and kicked him in the ass.

    Keynesian/Neo-Keynesian Economics has never worked and will never work. Those are about the only people supporting Obama.

    Allow me to state my point. Additional Government intervention in the Economy is always a bad idea.

    The economies of JFK, FDR, and Bill Clinton say otherwise :p

    I don't feel like debating anymore, I did plenty of that before the election. Now I feel like sitting back and waiting for the official announcement of President Elect Obama.

    ...Obama has talked people into what? Hope? Change?


    Bush has been a DISASTER. McCain, I have to many issues against him, campaign finance (free speech) being primary, but I am not impressed with Obama's record nor his rhetoric.

    Oh well.

    fixed

    Im not voting simply because i never made the time to fill out my absentee ballot amongst all this moving the past couple weeks. I'd have voted obama/biden though. Simply because i feel they are the lesser of the two evils...

    Im thinking A1/CCJcool 2024...anyone else with me? Who wouldnt want two vibrant 38yo men running their country? ;)
