Your Presidential Vote Goes To...

Postby skinsfan » Tue Oct 26, 2004 3:21 pm

Be honest, no Larouche or Libertarian votes if you are serious.
I know that this was a poll on the front of the site a few days ago, but I thought it would be good to couple it with some comments.

I say Bush, and I can argue for him pretty well if anyone wants a throwdown.

Allow me to revise the poll for you. Out of curiosity and laziness, in your words, what is Badnarik's platform?

Badnarik is the Libertarian candidate.

i.e. running on a platform of fiscal conservatism and social liberalism

No matter who you vote for, the government wins.

You know, Buckychudd, I was intrigued by the concepts, fiscal conservatism and social liberalism. These seem to describe exactly what I want in a government. However, reading Badnarik's positions, I find him a bit too extreme:
Specifically, elimination of all income taxes with a vague plan to operate the government on "Constitutional tariffs and excises"; as well as his isolationist, "evict the organization (UN) from ... US".
This nation is not ready for a spending plan like this:

I went to Badnarik's homepage and viewed the majority of his platform. Here is my quick take on his policy:
-He seems to be perfectly allowing of any personal drug use, so long as it isn't provoking violence. I believe this rule should only apply to Marijuana, which is less dangerous than Alcohol.
-He believes that everyone should "handle themselves". For many people this will work well, but here are the main problems with this. 1) Many people are imbeciles who, if left to their own devices, would send this country to Hell. 2) If the government is too "liberating" as the party name suggests, it will be overtaken by the people and once again, this country would go to Hell.
-I still like a lot of what he is saying, but this nation and every other nation in the world isn't responsible enough to handle it. He needs to make his views more conservative if he ever is to manage a country as vast and powerful as this.

I think we all know who I voted for.

Also, regardless of your political stance or your view of the rapper, I urge everyone to watch Eminem's new video "Mosh." It's incredibly powerful. It will be interesting to see if it has any effect on his "followers."
