    Voting?

    Okay, so I can not say I am Repub or Demo, and I have been having a hard time following everyone because I have to much crap going on in my life.

    So I asked this,

    Who are you rooting for and why?

    As I have stated before there are things about all the candidates that I don't like. However I'm still holding out hope Huckabee will pull a rabbit out of a hat.
    I have voted both Republican and Democrat but I am really leaning toward Republican this time.
    Huckabee seems to have the best overall appeal to me concerning most of the headlining issues. I would like to see a candidate that would focus more on our country than other places.
    I won't vote for Clinton due to the shady nature of their politics.
    I won't vote for Obama for a variety of reasons but this one really pisses me off.
    2005-2006 Senator Obama supported the interests of the Iranian American Political Action Committee 100 percent in 2005-2006.
    Is this not one of the enemy?
    I'm no expert so don't think my opinion is the most knowledgeable. If Huckabee doesn't make it at all then I'm not sure what I'll do.
    CB turned me on to this site where you can search all the candidates. If you have a few months of time to devote to it.

    Another vote for Huckabee. He may not win but I want him to show everyone in Washington that a candidate with next to no money can last so long based on his platform. Namely the FairTax. This issue is what has propelled Huckabee this far. Even with the media and his own party's insiders fighting against it. It sure as hell isn't evangelical Christians.

    I guess I'm going to have to vote for McCain.

    The way I see it, it appears the election will boil down to either McCain vs Obama - or - McCain vs Clinton (although I'm happy to say she is fading fast and might not make it).

    Either way, it appears this one is going to come down to voting for the lesser of two evils. I think McCain is that lesser evil.

    There may be some third party candidate running for the job that I'm in tune with, but voting for one of those is the same as throwing my vote away. I don't use my vote to "make a statement" that everyone forgets about two weeks after the election so I don't vote for them.
