    Then you are going to whine forever because as I posted earlier the only candidate acceptable to you would be you and I guess the question is why aren't you running and getting your message out?

    Did you know that the Smallest Political Quiz used to have a question that had as its basis that we should let peaceful people cross borders freely? According to the Quiz, the pure libertarian answer was yes.

    Well that's obviously not true given that I still vote for candidates. Just not your candidate. Field someone better and I'll vote for y'all again. I hold no party over another; I just back the candidate whom best echos my own political platform. You know, the best alternative. I think you said something about that earlier.

    What's ironic is you have posted that the Democratic party left you, so you stopped voting for them. Yet you cannot fathom the idea the Repulican party has left people so Ikari cannot vote for them.

    Hypocrisy at it's best and it's displayed by your own comments about yourself.

    Although I don't agree with many things Ikari says I have more respect for him than you because he stands by his principles unlike you. Sad you can't even understand what that really means.

    Conservatives like to talk about values, but vote for evil.

    Ikari gives us all something to think about and no, there is no sarcasm emote in what I
    saying

    Guess it is always easier voting for someone based upon promises knowing that individual has no chance of winning. How do you know your candidate will do what he or she says they will and how will that candidate get anything done with a Congress made up of Democrats and Republicans. where is that support going to come from? Sounds like a cop out to me

    You never know. You have to perform the experiment. And all parties given time will corrupt so you'll have to vote them out eventually regardless. However, the experiment is done with the main parties as they're the ones always being elected. And from their performance and action it is clear to see that they are functionally equivalent. I can no longer hold any confidence in the GOP. For too long they have acted in the big government, big debt, big spending, big war, big brother manner; and I for one say that 1984 should be a warning, not a playbook. Till that changes and I can see that change, I cannot return to the GOP. I will have to find my best alternative elsewhere. And if that means voting third party, then so be it. The system only works if you vote for the candidate which best echos your political ideology, not the one you think can best win.

    Meh, it's ok. I'm not the largest fan of Ann Rand though, so I think you can do better.

    What hyperbolic claptrap! No Republican has ever voted for Osama bin Laden.
