FortKnox's Journal: I'm voting for.... 22

Journal by FortKnox
I thought about who to vote for. First, if I vote for Bush, I'd really tick off a great amount of people, and if Bush got reelected, I could laugh at all the democrats with their mouths gaping open.
But that wouldn't be enough...
I could vote for Brown, but that's just silly.

I don't follow Nader's positions, and dislike Kerry (if it were a battle of positions, I'd side with Bush). So, to piss off the most people as I can... I'm going to vote for......

Nobody. MUHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

I hate politics, and will always take my shot at poking fun of it when I can :-P

    How can I, that girl standing there,
    My attention fix
    On Roman or on Russian
    Or on Spanish politics?
    Yet here's a travelled man that knows
    What he talks about,
    And there's a politician
    That has read and thought,
    And maybe what they say is true
    Of war and war's alarms,
    But O that I were young again
    And held her in my arms!

    Shouldn't you be more concerned with what you want? The whole point of voting isn't just to not piss of people. It's to vote for the person who you want in office, not other people.

    Why should that make a difference? Would you jump off a cliff just because not doing so would piss off all the lemmings who are? If you think one candidate more closely represents your views than the other candidate, not voting at all is equivalent to voting for the opposing candidate.

        With the disingenuous bombast coming from the left, I fail to see how this divide will be bridged.

        Sure, you may think that Bush lied about Iraq, but then, Kerry and the democrats who voted for the Iraq liberation act did, too.

        Bah.
        Voting for no one is an acceptable choice, isn't it?

        • Kerry and the democrats who voted for the Iraq liberation act did, too.

          Where?

          Please explain how taking the President at his word and voting to give him the authority to go to war in case diplomacy fails consists of a lie.

          • Take your pick.
            BTW, there was no 'in case diplomacy fails' line in H.J. Res. 114. It only authorizes the President to use force to enforce the existing 17 U.N. resolutions concerning Iraq and the conditions of the 1991 cease fire (the first war never technically ended).
            And I fail to see how diplomacy would have worked since we have found out that France was taking bribes to help eliminate sanctions against Iraq.

            Anyway, here are some quotes:

            "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacit

              Wrong. And I quote:

              "Whereas on September 12, 2002, President Bush committed the United States to ''work with the United Nations Security Council to meet our common challenge'' posed by Iraq and to ''work for the necessary resolutions,'' while also maki

              • So by waiting 18 months and getting another U.N. resolution, Bush "rushed to war", eh?

                Then I guess there's no reasoning with you, is there?

                At least the French were getting bought off...why are you so sad Saddam isn't in power?

                BTW, it's not all anarchy over there [tennessean.com].
                • So by waiting 18 months and getting another U.N. resolution, Bush "rushed to war", eh?

                  No. He rushed to war when the UN inspectors said "we're not finding anything, so we want time to keep looking" and Bush said no.

                  Bush rushed to war when Saddam made the motions of complying with the UN resolutions, and rather telling Saddam what else he needed to do, we said "you're stalling, we're going to bomb you."

                  Bush rushed to war when he failed to ensure that every soldier had body armor, we had a plan to go in a

                    Bush took Saddam to task because he violated the terms of the cease fire and 17 prior U.N. resolutions, i.e. did not allow unfettered access to the inspectors. FWIW, Clinton lobbed a bunch of cruise missiles in 1998. More than Gulf War I, incidentally. However, Clinton loathed a ground war after his successes in Haiti and Somalia. It's one reason the unsanctioned, unilateral action in Bosnia took so long.
                    I mean, Bush gave Blix et al. over a year

                      "Why are you so sad Saddam isn't in power?"

                      That's clearly a sign of you trying to demonize me by making a fallacious argument. Right up there with "you look French."

                      And, FWIW, if you're not a Republican, then you're not included in my statement of "partisan, low-brow, ignorant bastards" which I worded as a measure for any Republican to prove before I would vote for them.

  • We mailed in our absentee ballot this morning. You know, doing it via mail was the way to go. No lines, got to google the candidates while voting for some of those goofier positions.
  • Who cares if you disagree with his position? He's not going to win anyway!

  • but that is a real fucktard attitude. When you have to decide between two evils, it is vitally important that you _do_ choose the lesser one. In this case, if you don't vote, realize that you and I (or folk we know) may end up being asked to face each other with weapons in hand. I wouldn't like it any more than you would. Take a look again at what you say you've 'got' in your sidebar bio.
  • House of Representatives (In order of preferences): Democrats, Labor, Independent, Liberal, Nationals and last of all the Greens.
    Senate: Democrats (I'll just follow their ticket for this one...)

    It'll all be over by tomorrow night, thank Ghod! Hopefully with a change of government this time...
  • And vote Bush. He's going to win anyway. That is my (sad) opinion at least.
    Not voting is like voting for the majority, at least that's what my dad told me and that is why I always vote (I was prohibited from voting as foreigner, first time I voted for nationals was this year).
