    No, it means I'm going to be writing "None of the Above" on just about every ballot.

    With Obama sending our economy to Hell in a handbasket, how will you vote for Congress and Senate in 2010?

    This poll is multiple choice.

    I am having a hard time with your poll answers; fiscal is not the prism that I see candidates thru.

    Is there ever? Even leaving aside the absurdity of electing a Fascist government, I am more upset by the fact that there simply hasn't been a responsible candidate available to vote for President for the last eight years-- the last three elections-- and I am increasingly viewing the complete lack of suitable candidates as further evidence of democracy's failure as a political system and the people's inability to effectively govern themselves.

    I'm a grown man and mature enough to understand I'll never see a candidate or party that represents everything I want for my country. But we have moved beyond the realm of acceptable compromises, of gritting our teeth and dealing with the candidate who's "good enough", into the realm of our government being effectively controlled by two reckless, irresponsible, and stupid political parties that cannot be counted on to provide even the barest minimum of sensible policy.

    Since when is American politics a race to the bottom, a contest to see who can do the most long-term damage to our political and economic systems in the shortest amount of time?

    Personally, I think a lack of proper education is one of the main causes of this.

    But I could be wrong. After all, it could be that I am the improperly educated one.
    Education.

    Question is, is it the voters or the candidates who are improperly educated, and whose fault is that? And, more importantly, how do we fix it?

    Pressing concern, when the schools themselves are controlled by forces that have benefited from this sorry state of affairs.

    I sat out the 2000 elections(the first I was able to vote in, for age reasons), because I was overseas and did not bother filling out an absentee ballot. However, I likely would have voted for GWB just on the basis I did not care for Al Gore being my Commander in Chief. I don't really remember much about that election cycle as my interest in politics wasn't yet formed. In 2004, I abstained from voting. I did not care for Bush that much, and Kerry was unacceptable for me to vote for. I was a little more politically aware, but not anymore than anybody who casually tunes into debates. By 2006 I had engrossed myself into politics, and I find that my increased knowledge of our political system and the people within it, has led to a decrease in my desire to even cast a vote for anyone. Nobody has been inspiring to me. Nobody has come forth with a clear and concise message, filled with detailed knowledge, backed by relative experience, and delivered with strong concise leadership. Its as if I have eaten the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. I cannot ever view our political system in a kind light, because I now see it for what it is. Ignorance, really is bliss.

    Personal opinion? Both.

    How to fix it?

    I really don't have a good idea. Some vague ideas, perhaps, but I don't know enough about the subject to know if they are good ones or not.

    But it would likely involve some kind of massive overhaul of the way the entire system works. I'm a fan of comprehensive overhauls.

    One of the key problems with the current system, as I see it.
    Education.

    I usually support the Democrats in the House, and Republicans for the Senate. I don't see anything so far to change how I would vote.

    Search really hard for a candidate you can support, and work your heart out to help get him/her elected, even if he/she isn't running in the district or state you live in. If none can be found, get your signup pad, start collecting signatures, and stand for election yourself. No excuse to sit it out, find someone to support, or jump in
