Title: US Elections Thread
Description: Keep it clean
Holtor Flavian - April 15, 2008 01:24 AM (GMT)
For a little discussion 'bout politics. Three rules to follow.
1. Stay calm, don't scream "F U you are an idiot and a racist!", discuss things calmly.
2. Don't make any totally ridiculous statements.
3. Keep it civil...
So, who are you all supporting?
I support Mccain as long as he chooses romney or a marine general as a running mate personally. Hilary and Obama are both ultra liberals who stand against everything I beleive in, if I had to choose between them I would choose Obama because hillary advocates (essentialy) taking republicans out behind the house and shooting them (though obviously not with guns because she will have banned those), then dumping their bodies in the nearest river. Obama at least doesn't say that openly.... Mccain is a much better choice because he has worked with democrats in the past and he is a reformer, he has been all his life...

Well I live in Australia not the US so I don't know to much about the hole thing. Could any one give me some info on the peoples policies?

Well considering I am a rip roaring liberal and Holters a conservative it would be hard for neither of us to put biased overview. i would suggest goggling the names or something similar.
I support Obama.
He is a natural leader and a great speaker. He stands for every thing I believe in (Pro choice, uni healthcare etc)
I truly believe he is the kind of Leader who could make a massive difference.
I would support Mc'Cain before Hillary as she is a conniving lier who has run a horrible and dirty campaign running on nothing but accusations and using Bill (Who normally I like) as another barging tool.
Mc'Can does not seem bad. I disgrace with many of his polices but he seems like a genuinely good guy.
He has separated him self from the republican pack and defended kerry so at least he will be a more likable person then the current administration.

Yep Hillary will have us all dead before the first year of her administration ends... if she is elected.
Mccain: Is a liberal conservative. Generally a "classic" Republican (Pro life, pro gun rights, pro national security, etc). He is one of the greatest heroes of vietnam alive today I think, he was captured after being shot down and spent years in a prison camp where he was tortured. The thing that is great about that is that he COULD have gone back, he was the son of an admiral so the vietnamese would have negotiated, but he refused to go back because he was an admiral's son, so he spent years being tortured. He also has a great track record in congress, among dems and republicans, he is the FIRST (With the exception of Liberman ((How do you spell his name)) ), in congress that is thought of as a negotiator. For years it was "Mccain and Liberman are leading a coalition of republicans and democrats to accomplish....." Mccain is also a reformer and doesn't follow the "buisness as usual" in washington and hasn't his entire life. If I had been old enough to care back then.... during the last Republican primary, I would have thrown all my support behind Mccain and probably denounced Bush, in the primary.
My one problem with Obama (Political problem), is he is an ultra liberal and wouldn't have anything to do with laws I support. Mccain I think would listen to both sides equally and be fair, as his record has shown, and Obama, not. Hillary I won't even comment on aside from saying that if she is elected the United States if F@%#ed.

Mike Huckabee. For one good reason. Stephen Colbert supports him!!!!!
But I think that McCain is the best for the job. Obama is just not knowing What he is doing.

McCain. But of the two democrats, I'd rather have Obama. Bush-Clinton-Bush-Clinton is too much. And she's just a power hungry woman.

Very good point.... that would be wierd, hadn't thought of that.
