Vote: None of the Above

After reading all the things about good ole GW, I will have to agree for the most part. In my opinion is he better than what we had? doubt. Is he better than the other choices given? doubt! Would I vote for him again....maybe. Would I check the "None Of The Above" on the ballot if given the choice? doubt about it!!! The way they go about choosing your options as to whom you can vote for is a screwed up crooked mess. You're left to choose from the lesser of 2 evils. Big $$ chooses who your choices are on the ballot. There needs to be a "None of the Above" on the Ballot, instead of "here's your choices, like it or not, take it or leave it". Alot of people don't bother going to vote at all because of the lousey choices provided. When the "none of the above"'s win, then start over until we get someone worth the time of day.

[x] "None of the Above"

Give Americans a choice!

Good Day

Hey roudy, didn't-ya-no, we voters have one vote that in a national election does'nt mean much other than a statistic. It's them dern electoral votes. Who is in the electoral college? Not sure. Knew at one time but forget. I think it is specific people who through contributions to the political system are granted electoral college status. The amount of such personnel per state depends on the population of that state. I voted for Bush the last time and this is the only way I know, I thinkk, that my vote counted, maybe?

I don't consider my Yamaha Big Bear a killer. I usually put-put around on my lands in U.P. of MI enjoying the woods, meadows and wildlife. I haul a trailor of wood with it and never cross streams unless they are bridged. I hate to tear up the environment since one off road ride leaves two tracks that last for years. I don't go around private property gates cuz I am a landowner myself and respect others property. I don't need speed. Speed kills and robs the rider of experiences passed up by those on Grizzly killers. I would walk my lands but my time is usually limited and I can check on things quickly. Yup I own a Yamaha Big Bear and use it in a environment friendly way. Course I can understand all you speed demons. Put a motor between your legs and your supermen. It'll take a few years before you learn that the enjoyments of life can be passed by without notice. 4-wheeler "idiot laws" have been enacted due to a lack of common sence in a minority of 4-wheeler owners. Seems like all commercials that try to sell motor vehicles use speed to entice idiots in our society, thus the phrase "idiot laws"!

i think that a canidate can run on any ticket he wishes but once he/she is elected all party conections should cease do the job he/she was elected to do not what the party wants

I agree we need a (None of the above button. But you forgot a more important one. Make them responsible for thier actions. Hammer them when the screw up. Not just them everyone. Incuding judges, lawers, politians you and me. Get rid of the iresponsable liberals.

my thoughts exactly . i have never voted and never will as long as i am told who my choices are.

Les    Posted 01-10-2004 at 17:26:58       [Reply]  [No Email]
The last time I looked, every ballot has a place where you can write in any name you want. That's about as much choice as a person can have, isn't it?
Voting for "None of the above" accomplishes nothing.

Rowdy Yates    Posted 01-10-2004 at 17:58:33       [Reply]  [No Email]
It would accomplish freedom of choice, not here's the couple of choices that were bought for you, period. Go ahead and right in a name, you had better have several million going along with you or you may as well not even vote on that subject. Everyone knows who "None of the Above" is. If there was a chance that neither party, person, or whatever would not win, then they would forced to provide you with good, credable, trustworthy candidates in order to get votes. Not people whom bought their name on the Ballot. Would you rather have a green rotten egg, a brown rotten egg, a blue rotten egg or None of the above? Or would you rather write in your own name. Yellow rotten egg?

Good Day

????? I knew that someone would have to bring up the "write in" thing, what a joke!!! That's not a choice, it's a way to make people feel better, to give them the illusion of "choice". 750,000 people "write in" their "choice" and you'll have 750,000 different names.

Les    Posted 01-10-2004 at 17:46:19       [Reply]  [No Email]
Or you could just give up. That is really helpful.

Ron,Ar    Posted 01-10-2004 at 18:01:04       [Reply]  [No Email]
And that has become part of the problem too. Far too many people have taken that approach. They don't care, they don't vote, they believe "one person can't make a difference". As far as write-in votes go, 70,000 write-ins, even different names at least sends an "against" message to those running. Any informed,heartfelt vote is better than no vote. IMO

Les    Posted 01-10-2004 at 18:26:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
Roger that, Ron. "I have never voted and never will...." I'll never understand that. You have just taken away any chance that you may have had to make a difference.

think the first thing that ought to be changed is setting term limits for these power hungry Bas#&*ds. Get rid of Ted Stevens and T Kennedy and Byrd just to mention a few. They control the spending, and too much of it goes to their pet projects. Same for governors and state legislators, so they can't set up a power base. Sure don't see it happening. As for Bush, he has dissapointed a lot of people. I voted for him, not sure if will again. Darn shame we can't find a person who will put the country first, guess they don't make them anymore.

Ken    Posted 01-10-2004 at 18:09:48       [Reply]  [No Email]
I've never seen anywhere would I could choose/vote on limits.

REt    Posted 01-10-2004 at 19:51:25       [Reply]  [No Email]
then check on who sits on the senate approprations board , they distribute the money,
You will find a large percentage goes to the states they represent. That is the case for term limits
