    I was thinking about how political this place can get and was wondering how many people voted.

    So do you vote? ( I didn't put Green or Libertarian or Socialist or etc but you can write it in ;))
    After you cast your vote comments are welcome though optional:

    If so what party are you registered with or do you normally find yourself voting for (I can guess a few of ya'll)?
    If no, is there a paticular reason you don't vote?
    Also Why do you vote for your particular party???? Please keep it down to a few sentences, there are alot of other threads where pages of angry rhetoric are typed.
    Or
    Why do you NOT vote for a particular party?

    PS. If any of you passionate political posters don't vote, how dare you talk about who is in office. ;)

    I don't go with just one party or the other. I have many issues that I care about and if the political candidate does not agree with my issues why would I want to vote for him/her. They're going into office to work for the people so it would be a good thing if they agreed with what I believe in.

    no............i havent voted for about 5 years........in the uk there is no-one who i would trust to voice my opinon except myself.
    we have the worst performing,lying bunch of self important lowgrades perporting to run(most would say ruin) our country.....in living memory,and i would be embaressed to admit to have voted them into office.
    although i dont agree with this situation in the middle east,Colin Powell put the argument for war to the U.N excellently,you could tell he knew what he was talking about and the point was put forward very well indeed,very eloquently and very sincerely.
    in contrast......jack("man of")straw looked and sounded a total fool,which is what he is.....his short monotone utterence was obviously written down for him in un-joined up writing and he just pathetically read it out word for word.it was cringemaking to watch someone with so much responsibility show the world that he didnt have a clue.
    ive seen more knowledge and conviction from people pushing shopping trolleys round ASDA carpark than he has.

    so as you can see..... im sitting on the fence:D

    How about a coup detate Steve? Overthrow the Queen and you could be King.
    :)

    Seriously although I hold no allegiance to a particular party I
    tend to go R

    very briefly :
    seem to reward ambition and success rather than punish it
    military and weapons (gotta defend yourself and eliminate any threats)
    seem to defend right to bear arms more, nra backing (gotta defend yours and yourself)
    where my taxes go (for ex. enough of my money goes towards welfare already-rather buy a tank than support another irresponsible person;yeah yeah I know some need it but as I said keep it brief so I won't even go into the many that use the system that I know personally)

    I have voted but sometimes regret who I voted for.

    I regret that I voted for Bush. I regret that I voted for Perot.

    I hope the Dem come up with someone worth while this time.

    The choices are sometimes, like, bad and worse.

    Where do they come up with those candidates?

    I know men who run businesses who could do a better job.

    Sometimes, there doesn't really seem to be much difference, all sleaze.
