I know I am...

I getting pretty tired of hearing the names Barack Obama,Hillary Clinton, and John McCain  Barack Obama,Hillary Clinton, and John McCain Barack Obama,Hillary Clinton, and John McCain Barack Obama,Hillary Clinton, and John McCain Barack Obama,Hillary Clinton, and John McCain over and over and over again.

I'm also getting pretty tired of this he said,he said,she said nonsense thats been going on for months now ,ugh GRANTED  this election year is one the most important and one of the most unique in that it has been in decades, but please can't the news stop treating it like it's pretty much the only thing has been going on in the world?

stupid ratings, stupid media conglomorates, ugh. TongueThumbs%20Down

  Just like vaporware, they have no substance. And they haven't even really started running their annoying campaign ads yet....

I wouldn't mind so much if they stuck to the candidates' stance on issues.  But all I'm hearing on the news is who has what numbers.

I don't want Hitlery Clinton giving away free (read, more expensive) healthcare, or Barack Yomoma turning this country into a ghetto! So i'll taker my chances with John McCain! Yeah, politics sucks, but the sad reality is the fact that politics effect your life, so pick the lesser of two (or in this case, three) evils.
If it's got wings, i can crash it!

When will the Democrats learn to pick a truly qualified candidate  who can win on his/her own merits, and doesn't come off as an opportunist(Obama, Clinton), or just a patronising weirdo(Gore, Kerry?) The whole 'We'll win with a flawed candidate because we're Democrats they're not, and  look who's running against us' strategy hasn't worked.

Also, this whole superdelegate thing is being used to sway the delegate vote rather than decide a tie, as was originally intended.  It's been suggested that the rules here changed to ensure Obama the win.

I'lll probably do like I did in the last Presidential election--vote Third Party.  I know--Kang and Kodos on The Simpsons like saying "Go ahead, throw your vote away!"--but I will keep voting Third Party until a suitable Presidential candidate throws his/her hat in the ring.

I see nothing wrong with voting a third party.  People will complain that, by doing so, you may end up helping to vote "the bad guy" in.  They obviously don't get that you just might consider the main party candidates to BOTH be "the bad guys".

I see nothing wrong with Independents, I can see where they're coming from, hell it's been proven that both parties arn't that great, and a little more or less corrupt (sad) but I just hope they don't fall into a bad trap that they might regret like for example the Libertatarian Party check this out:

http://www.zompist.com/libertos.html

and that guys a small government conservative, and I'm a liberal!!! and I'm actually agreeing with him,dang!

But if you're going for the Green party or just regular good old Independent, that's fine with me, I'm just saying make sure what Independent party you're going into before you make your vote.

Okay? thanks.

Apparently they're using FL as a test ground for the upcoming campaign.  If what they showed on the news is any indication, nasty attack ads will be the rule....
