    He has made a difference on the way I think about things. Hell, it's one of the reasons why I'm voting Libertarian this year. Even though Orang and I don't agree on all the same issues, I know that deep down we both want what we think is best for the country.
    Beware liberals with guns.

    I would agree. IMO, those '92 debates made both of the other two big candidates
    look a little silly, especially at the time when National issues were of paramount concern.
    The only problem is, the factional split of the Reform party in more recent elections
    turned off a lot of people.

    Also, I think they have changed the entrance requirements for the Prez debates since
    the '92 election too. If I remember correctly, there was a big stink about them changing
    the number of sigs required just weeks ahead of the first '00 debate. As if they didn't
    want Nader up there making a fool of them the way Perot did in '92.
    Then there was the Nader/audience ticket debacle.

    I agree, I think a 3 party sytem might be in the making.

    A big step might be to do away with the "third party" label. IMO it adds a tone
    of illegitimacy. As if any party besides the big two should all be grouped together.

    I think so. And if Bush wins it would be her time in '08.

    I just might vote for her just for a change.

    VA, NC, and Missouri too close to call. Interesting these states haven't gone to Bush right away. Hopefully a good sign.

    Hopefully. < crosses fingerz >

    Sorry guys, but I'd rather see Alfred E. Newman as Prez than Bush again.

    Re: The "Wailing Thread" - Election BAR & "Free for All" thread

    with 54% of precincts reporting, only 36,000 people out of the approx. 230,000 people in my city are voting. Even if I'm generous and triple that number, it's still a good bit less than 50% voter turnout. So sad, so disappointing

    On the positive side, Kerry has a 6 point lead so far (in my city that is). Makes me feel happy for having voted , final election results aside.
