Default OT: US Pres election

Hopefully I won't regret starting this discussion.
I was wondering if any dominions players have opinions about the election that I am watching in my country.
Please try not to trash each other please.

I am of the opinion that voting for McCain or Obama is a wasted vote as they both serve the same interest.

Voting for anyone else is the only sane choice.

Otherwise, McCain is going to win, which just goes to show how pathetic the electorate has become, or continues to be, depending on just when you think the electorate moved from misguided to pathetic.

I tried to sanitize this for the boards but you really need the last word to get the full nuance of the philosophy, which I think sums up U.S. politics beautifully:

"Same crap, different asswhole."

Anyway, I am voting for Obama

Well, I guess I have more faith in the differences between parties. At any rate, my vote's with McCain. Not that it will help since I live in the socialist republic of Washington state....Well, its not that bad but my vote still won't matter.

I find it hard to believe that anyone who is well informed about national+world affairs could possibly vote for McCain. I'm not pushing Obama, but the McCain+Palin ticket just seems like an expensive prostitute with large hands and an adam's apple.

Trumanator, lets both agree to not vote since we'd cancel each other out anyway and we can save ourselves a trip to the polls.
