With the exception of Kail, 'cuase we know he's only messing with ya.

Anybody who selects choices 3 thru 6, is in big trouble.

We'll build one of those famous round table thingy's, call you a lot of nasty names, then throw your ass out. LOL

It would almost be worth it :D If you are a gun owner and you're not voting (I don't care who as that is your choice) then you ought not to bring it or we'll give you and Indian head burn. :)

yea sorry i kinda screwed up the survey there , I think the thing that suprises me most about this election is the amount of people who are misinformed. i think were in for a bad time from a gunowners perspective, on a side not a girl in my office asked me a question today is there a cut off date for voter registration ?? back on topic i have a freeind whom i think is pretty grounded a gun owner ,veteran (even though its air force kidding ), responsible tax paying american , hes for kerry when i asked why his only answer is that bush screwed us up in the international community . the problem is that most people dont pay enough attention to whats going on around them . another problem is alot of americans have become lethargic and so nonconfrontational that they wont even speak there own opinions ,
i guess i can get of the soap box lol, it kills me to think that the uninformed masses that remember a catch phrase or a catchy slogan made up by some spin doctor are the one deciding our future

Kerry keeps reminding everyone that we have lost over 1000 brave men and women in the war on terror.
Trying to make Bush look bad.

Have all the sheeple forgotten that we lost three times that many innocent civilians in the WTC alone?

I have a nephew that works for a very large very well known paint company that makes rust covering paint. He tells me that he is in a position that if he should express his opinion on Kerry he may lose his job. No one in his office can say anything good about Bush without fear of losing their position, and to show you how Democrats think he said he couldn?t even admit he?s a gun owner. Absolutely does being Democrat and anti-gun go together today. He?ll vote but he can?t talk about it to anyone where he works. I?ll vote too but you better damn well believe I?ll talk about it! I live in Illinois and the old saying here is ?Vote early Vote often.? and Cook county (Chicago) is known as the only place where the Democratic dead outvote the Republican living. The news makes a big deal out of Florida voting, try Illinois!

Not in NC. Our democrats are mainly blue dog conservatives. Most have "A" ratings from the NRA. Yet, the National Party is what you suggest.

I bet your nephew works at a Union plant. Mixing unions and democrats is a very bad thing.

Already voted two weeks ago by absentee mail-in.

Actually voted Green on a couple or races where the Republicrat was more Conservative than the Depublican.

Republicrat... Depublican! Two new terms introduced into the language of politics, and they do have a semblence of truth!

But ... DB, how can you vote green, but also vote for more "conservative" candidates? Was it to protest nonconservative candidates?

Well what I should have said was that I voted for the candidates, not the party, with the exception of my vote for Kerry, which was really more of a vote against Bush, because Kerry is a too much of a conservative silver-spoon type.
there were some Democraps and Repugnicans that I wouldnt vote for unless I had a bayonet in my back, (the way things are headed it might happen someday) and one Republican I damn near voted for, because I know him personally, and he's a swell guy, but after careful thought, I voted against him because of his political philosophies differ from mine. There another GOP candidate who I was going to vote for, because in the primary his platform was pro-2nd, but come main election he switched and he turned out to be a Religious Fanatic-nutjob, the No. 1 reason I dont vote GOP.
The two Greens I voted for were running against Brad Owen a "democrat" who is the biggest asshole in my state's govt, has a do-nothing job, but still manages to receive "campaign contributions" from PACs. The other was Deborah Senn, who is a MEGA-Bitch, and will have to suck my balls before she'll get my vote.

DB,

When it comes to politics, "green voters" are color blind. I watched parts of their convention, and more than one speaker called his fellow party members "socialists." Maybe they should call themselves "reds?"

You fell for the Kerry ploy. You thought you were voting against Bush, like the mantra, "anyone but Bush." Whether you realize it, or not, you actually did vote for Kerry. It is not intent which is tallied after an election, but votes cast. You were slickered into voting for a man, whom you believe is "too much of a conservative silver-spoon type" to be President!

I wish more people voted according to a candidate's Second Amendment positions. It is a better indicator of who would best guard individual liberties, than their social status.
