    This is my opinion.
    I dont like anyone running now...
    Since Mitt bailed...I dont know where to go...

    Hillary is not an option....
    Obama I like, just dont like the policies
    McCain kinda scares me....

    I feel sick now.

    Yeah, Mike's capitalized too late and he was my 2nd place to Mitt. Big Mac was at the bottom of my list and I don't agree with 3/4 of what Obama or Hillary advocate for.

    Mitt was my last longshot.:csad:

    I feel the same. My only hope is that Huckabee is McCain's VP nod. Then there's some saving grace. What a dissapointing election year.:csad:

    We're on the same page there, but I think we both know it's a long shot at best.:csad:

    Sad that Romney dropped out. He honestly did still have a chance.

    No he didn't. He did very poorly on Super Tuesday. It killed his campaign.

    *sobs sadly*

    Well I guess I will vote McCain. Voting for either of the Democrats to me is a step in the wrong direction.

    IMO the country is already in a wrong direction after 8 years of Bush in the WH, and another GOP prez will just continue the status quo. I'd rather go for change and vote Democrat than stay on track.

    Explore the candidates from some of the other parties and see what they have to say and if you agree, vote for them. If people stopped being slaves to the false assumption that our political system is setup as a 2 party system, things might REALLY change in this country. i'd rather vote for someone I believed in who I knew wasnt likely to win as opposed to someone I disliked solely because they have a chance to win.

    I will vote for McCain if he runs against Hillary.

    If its McCain v. Obama...

    I could be swayed...

    ...to vote 3rd party.

    That's how I felt in 2004. But I voted for John Kerry since I didn't want another four years of Bush.

    Perhaps I was just swimming in vast sea of denial and wanted to see him go over McCain.

    I do not use it in my papers for school or work anymore. I now use the word "reform," "different" or similar synonyms.

    Unfortunately, it looks like Big Mac is the last resort.:csad:

    As to voting 3rd party, the highest percentage of votes was for what, Perot and it was 19% if I'm not mistaken. I'm going to cast my vote and it should actually make a difference, not voting for a losing effort for the hell of it. Big Mac holds a handful of my views, which is more than a say for the rest.:csad:

    You're NOW sick of this election? Man, you're early. I was sick as soon as Kucinich left the race. Now it's just a matter of who's drink mixed with sleeping pills you go home with tonight.

    I still plan to participate of course, but much of the enthusiasm is gone after seeing my last hope of a real Republican winning the nomination. Or at least the closest thing we had to it.

    I was wondering if some of you can help me because i think alot of the people in here could give me good perspective on this...


    Why do alot of folks on the right side of the line have angst against McCain... ?

    what issues specifically dress him down so much and depress you.

    is it immigration?

    taxes...

    what is it? and how did the other candidate you wanted differ from McCain?

    Ditto that, this election year is definitely disappointing. My number one has been Huckabee but McCain seems to have the GOP nomination in the bag and like you I'm hoping for a Huckabee as VP nod, and even then I'm not that thrilled with McCain as President. On the democratic side, I honestly don't like Obama and I'm not a fan of Hillary, although I would prefer Hillary over Obama.

    Honestly, the choices are pretty much horrible in my view.

    I personally don't like his stance on Immigration, him not voting for Bush Tax Cuts, and McCain/Feingold is disgusting. (Essentially sold out your political free speech for a bill with his name on it).

    How could you say that? Republicans are the ones who ruined America.
