because palin is dumber than a ******* brick

Palin also wasn't the top of the ticket. I also don't believe women feel as disenfranchised as blacks.

I just looked at voting history and I have to say I'm shocked by what I found. Over the last several presidential elections blacks have voted around 88% for the democratic candidate. The jump to 94% for Obama wasn't as big a change as I thought it was. I always figured that republicans picked up 20-30%, not 12! Obviously Obama made a difference but the Black vote is overwhelmingly Democratic every presidential election.

If you try you really can learn something new every day.

Check the State, County and Local statistics. Texas is NOT the bastion of the Republican Party it once was, and therefore should not be taken for granted.

2) you actually think Mccain will die in the next 4 years.....COME ON PEOPLE, ARE WE REALLY THAT IGNORANT????!!!

You call Voting for Ralph Nader, Bob Barr, or +Other Not a wasted vote HOW?!'

FACT: None of the above had ANY chance of EVER getting elected, and NEVER WILL! Not even 1% of the Popular vote was for any of non-main stream candidates!

if McCain dies in the next 8 years I'll eat my own hat.

You all were so convinced that Obama was the solution to all your worldly problems and he wasn't going to raise taxes.. He might not raise your income tax (I still think he WILL, however...) but there are a **** of a lot more taxes they CAN raise.

I am a Ron Paul supporter. I voted for Chuck Baldwin because he was endorsed by Ron Paul. I don't regret my vote at all even though many say I threw my vote away. I actually took the time to read Paul's book and was amazed at how smart and committed he is. I think our country needs a new direction and the ideas he lays out in his book are well developed and have a lot of sound thought put into them. I am frankly sick of being forced to chose between two candidates that I don't agree with. Maybe this will be a wakeup call for the Reps. Maybe this time they won't just shove Ron Paul's ideas into the dust filled corner. Maybe they might actually stand behind someone who can bring about real change. They won't because they all like their fat cushioned jobs that present them with lots of power. Paul's entire platform is about limiting and shrinking the federal government and returning power back to the states where it originally began. There is to much power focused into the executive branch of the federal government. It wasn't always that way but over many years it has become more so. Especially in the last 8 years. Take from this what you will but instead of arguing over Black vs. White maybe we should be arguing over Federal vs. State rights.

Chart Fail:




Does nobody remember the immortal words of Kang & Kodos? We live in a country that is, at present, dominated by a two-party system of government. While it is conceivable that at some point in the distant future a third-party candidate might stand a chance at being elected to some minor office like airport authority superintendent, a voter who casts his lot for Nader today has about as much chance of being taken seriously as one who'd have written-in a negroe candidate during the 1796 Adams / Jefferson race.

Bring back the Whig party!
