    You think this is republican funded and motivated?

    Might be good for Obama by 2% for the Democratic ticket;

    "Barr’s seven percent rose to nine percent against Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain. He polled at eleven percent against Hillary Clinton and John McCain."

    I don't find it that surprising. I will not vote for a democrat because I believe their defeatest policies have hurt us in Iraq and will undermine our credibility to the rest of the world. If you think Bush has hurt the world opinion of the US wait untill a dem gets in office. Then there is abortion, gun control, immigration, socialized medice. I disagree with the democratic platform on every issue I can think of.

    I also will not vote for John McCain for the same reasons. I disagree with him too often on too many issues. Yes he is worlds better than Obama or Clinton, but he is still pathetic and does not represent my beliefs.

    That being said I plan to vote libertarian in Novemeber regardless of who they nominate. Then I like Bob Barr a lot so yea, I will vote for him without hesitation. So there are 7% or so people out there that are like me. Hey, I don't feel quite so alone.

    I have problems voting for Barr. I think the Libertarians should talk to Alan Keyes. If I vote for Barr, despite my objections, but because I feel he will do the least damage, I may as well use the same logic to vote for McCain. I really wish they would find a better candidate than Barr.

    What do you have against Barr. Perhaps I just don't know enough. I like Keyes a lot also.
