    I'm voting Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a
    Gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect
    Me from murderers and thieves.

    I'm voting Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry
    Whatever I want. I've decided to marry my horse.

    I'm voting Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of
    4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the
    Same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

    I'm voting Democrat because I believe the government will do a
    Better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

    I'm voting Democrat because freedom of speech is fine as long as
    Nobody is offended by it.

    I'm voting Democrat because when we pull out of Iraq I trust
    That the bad guys will stop what they're doing because they now
    Think we're good people.

    I'm voting Democrat because I believe that people who can't tell
    Us if it will rain on Friday CAN tell us that the polar ice caps
    Will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.

    I'm voting Democrat because I'm not concerned about the
    Slaughter of millions of babies so long as we keep all death row
    Inmates alive.

    I'm voting Democrat because I believe that business should not
    Be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break
    Even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution
    As THEY see fit.

    I'm voting Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to
    Rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe
    Kooks who would NEVER get their agendas past the voters.

    (This is meant to be a spoof ......folks. I am definitely NOT voting Democrat!):tonofbricks:

    I am voting Republican because its really cute the way they use abortion to pander for Christian votes every four years.

    I am voting Republican because they have such a good handle on immigration.

    I am voting Republican because they are excellent at border control.

    I am voting Republican because of the fair justice they give border patrol agents.

    I am voting Republican because they balanced the budget.

    I am voting Republican because they wiped out the national debt.

    I am voting Republican because they reformed Social Security.

    I am voting Republican because they reformed Medicare.

    I am voting Republican because they do a great job of protecting civil liberties and Constitutional rights.

    I am voting Republican because they have done such a good job of fostering an atmosphere for a vibrant economy.

    I am voting Republican because of the high quality individuals that have been appointed to the cabinet over the last eight years.

    I am voting Republican because they believe in a free market and no government interference.

    I am voting Republican because they would never pay out a stimulus bill unless there was money in the Treasury to do so.

    I am voting Republican because they win wars quickly and decisively.

    I am voting Republican because of the proven leadership and conservative principles of George Bush.

    NO, I AM NOT VOTING REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE. They both represent the liberal, socialist, one world agenda, and both represent a threat to the sovreignty of the United States.

    saturneptune, I have several questions for you.

    1. What party are you registered with?
    2. Are you an active member of that party
    3. Have you worked campaigned for a candidate?
    4. Have you ran for office yourself
    5. Do you really believe there is absoutely no difference beween Dems and Repbulicans?
    6. How many politicians do you know personally?


    It may be too late to run for office this year (though last minute write ins have happened)
    so why not start preparing for running next year (or '10 - if you have no elections in '09)

    In NY we have elections every year in November, and villiages have elections in late winter in staggered years.

    1. Republican
    2. Yes, for conservative candidates
    3. Yes
    4. No, and have no desire to
    5. The differences are so minor as to sear the conscience of any conservative.
    6. I know several personally. One, a former US Represenative, a state senator, and, several city and county officials, and have met one President, hardly knew him.

    What does running for office have to do with not wanting to vote for either party with a liberal agenda?

    Ditto what Sat'said.... except for persons known. After the election I plan on changing my party affilitation to 'Constitution Party" or 'Independant'.... I'd like to check on the laws which favor my voting choices.... i.e. If 'independant' would allow me to committ to one party on the primary date... then this would work best for me..... Either way, it may encourage the added interest of others to break with the status quo, and to seek office.

    I see no reason for you to shout. I completely agree. However the Democratic Party is the greater threat, just as the Republican Party was the threat to our sovereignty when they had a slight majority of both houses the first 2 years of the Bush administration. They did not get concerned about immigration (illegal) until the people started voicing their displeasure at the invasion from the Southern Border with Mexico. Their slight majority was never filibuster proof and as such the Dems have been able to clog things up. This time the Dems stand poised to be able to filibuster proof their power.

    Now as far as the people voting for another party; it will never gain popularity until another party has a vast ground roots movement. It should start with the lowest elected office in our local communities and work from there to Mayor, Commissioners, Counselors and up. When the good people of our neighborhoods shed their family ties and traditions to the Republican and Democratic Parties and start real change by voting another party.

    I forget caps mean shouting, it was just an emphasis. The rest of your post I completely agree with.

    I think that as we have elected men and women of the Conservative persuasion we tend to say go get'em and lay back with the expectation that they will follow the path we set them out on. They never hear from us and they are constantly barraged with the voices of the left. Explain it away all you wish but we must be more active with emails, letters and phone calls to our elected officials. I know there are many (Democratic US Rep Corrine Brown FL) that will never respond to our correspondence but then it is up to us to throw them out.

    We can talk all we want too about how bad they are but until we start to hold their feet to the fire it is we who are to blame for what we get.

    We have closed primaries here, so one of the problems is that most of time, primaries are democrat or republican. On occasion, there will be a non-partisan local election. You have to be registered in the party running in the primary.

    You are exactly right. Maybe there should have been a serious conservative challenge to President Bush in 2004 for the nomination. I doubt he would have gotten beat, but it may have gotten his attention, and we would not be faced with the choices we have today.

    Our Senator McConnell ran on a conservative agenda, but has been there 24 years, and voters are furious about the bailout bill. To make a long story short, his opponent has a real shot of winning, and he is a liberal. No one held is feet to the fire.

    The bad thing about this year's election is that people are so furious at the Republicans, that they are not even thinking about who they are voting for on the Democratic ticket. In normal times, a radical liberal of that stripe would not have a chance.

    This is the hurdle that an emerging new party must overcome. While the two major parties go through their processes, they get all the press. Meanwhile the minor party, that may have a candidate, will not get any exposure until the general election. Then the name is on the ballot and everyone is asking, "Who's this?"
