The only argument you could muster was that I can't vote, which apart from you not being able to vote either seemed silly anyway, then you flip flop below, you are politically minded...

it was the other way around, i posted that comment before you saw the topic......

but anyway, the votes dont really count towards obama or Mccain, its just to see who the people want to vote for today, note i said want, that means not everyone can actually vote

Radio, I just flagged this as inappropriate, mostly because this constant arguing and spamming combined with a whole lot of bigotry is a complete mess, please stop creating multiple topics about the subject.

Do you see me making topics about our politics? Maybe trying to make people vote for a certain candidate?

Point is it's not good form on an open community site in my opinion, politics are important but one threads enough, especially when all you're dribbling out of the corner of your mouth is "O RLY?"

I understand the idea behind it but part of the voting process is anonymity, that point stands in both places and it undermines the whole ethos, yes people stick signs that tell you where they stand in their gardens but that doesn't mean you need to jump on to the forums with a hundred and one topics. Also you can't vote either.

It is a bit divisive. How many of these topics do we need? Most of us who care to express our opinion have already done so, and the rest of it just turns to petty bickering. I don't mind the topic itself, but the thread looks kinda shallow.

Like I said, not a bad topic, but they all seem to devolve into RLY? Ya RLY? OH RLY?.

It's not as bad as this: I was "discussing" the topic with someone I know, and one of the downsides that they see Obama as having is that "he has a history of voting with his party." It's no doubt a result of McCain's Maverick campaign. The way I see is that if you're part of the right party, you'll vote with them most of the time. You're supposed to pick your party based on your opinions, so if McCain rarely votes the way other Republicans do, maybe he's just not a republican!

Radio, after someone votes for your votes' opponent, don't try to sway their answer. Just say, "Thanks for your vote!" and move on, instead of trying to suppress their thoughts.

the vote doesnt really count toward the candidates, also, this is a public debate between mccain and obama supporters, voting is actually second issue in the forum

A Few pieces of independent thought.... and a survey....which Obama answered concerning the Elderly of this country (AARP) but which McCain refused to participate. Why doesn't he want AARP to know his views on Health care?

I hate that the AARP has been pushed towards liberal causes. It's not really their fault. I'm dealing with aging family members, and it's a real concern. On the other hand, those old folks gave a lot of blood sweat and tears to make this country great, and in their stronger days none of them supported anti-constitutional causes. Now some are forced to choose between pro-healthcare/anti-gun/pro-abortion candidates and other candidates that can not be trusted to do what's right. What a tangled web we weave!

Well, in the survey that I did not link to, because if you can't sign on the AARP, you can't get to it , one candidate answered the questions and one refused to answer them. It isn't really the fault of AARP that McCain doesn't want anyone to know what he REALLY is going to do or not do for the elderly and for healthcare.

forced to choose between pro-healthcare/anti-gun/pro-abortion candidates and other candidates that can not be trusted to do what's right

IMHO, I wouldn't trust a politician as far you you could throw him/her (they are so full of fluff they don't go anywhere). So we have the choice....do we pick Larry or do we pick Shemp ??

I'd go Larry because Shemp's not original. Hey!, What kept Moe off the ballot? But yeah, to me it's vote for one I don't like, or one I don't trust!

I think Chicken was deciding between Larry and Shemp. The attempt at archeology was a fiasco too! But yeah, in the (rare) event that dishonesty loses the race, power eventually corrupts the winner.

Yep, I think we agree. I'd go with Moe, but it would feel like a wasted vote (those third party guys never have a chance!).

If you haven't been paying attention, public debates over the internet are never good, nor ever benefit anyone. Just a simple, "I vote McCain, or I vote Obama" would suffice, and when the election is up, tally up the votes. Also, I'm pretty sure voting is the primary issue in the forum, hence the title.
