    People like me who aren't thrilled with McCain and won't vote for him will go to the polls and vote for Bob Barr. Or Alan Keyes. Or Huckabee.

    I'm not thrilled with McCain either, but a vote for any one of them is a vote for whoever wins in November, be it McCain, Obama or Clinton.

    McCain has already stated his supreme court appointees would be along the lines of Bush's. That means something to me, as that would go a long way in reversing Roe v. Wade.

    That is such a load of nonsense. A vote is a vote for the person for whom the vote is cast. It is ridiculous to claim that to vote for one person means that he/she is voting for someone whom he/she does not support.

    If the person you are voting for has no chance of winning, you are basically giving your vote to whoever. That is truth. If you don't think so, why are you not voting for Ron Paul? I recall you saying it's because you want to MAKE A DIFFERENCE in this election.

    Ron Paul is not on the ballot.

    So if it is apparent by November 4 that Senator McCain won't win Ohio will you not vote for him because he cannot win your electoral votes?

    You can't write him in? What a lame cop-out :rolleyes:

    McCain will win Ohio. If Obama is the democratic nominee, it's a given.

    Avoiding the question, I see, but that's par for the course. :rolleyes:

    I did that in November 1988 for Jack Kemp and I never saw my vote in any totals that were announced.

    We don't know who our votes are going to anyway with easily manipulated electronic voting.

    Then get a few million dollars together and hit up some Diebold employees, and get your man elected.....:laugh: Avoid all the political posturing. Your man wouldn't have to pretend to be someone he's not, nor promise all the social programs, or promise abortion on demand till age 1. :thumbs: I mean no offense Poncho, just struck me funny....

    I saw this coming and still busted out laughing.

    First year being married my wife told me she wrote in Mickey Mouse. I asked Why? Why not just leave it blank. You think anybody really reads those write-in's? If you didn't want your vote then vote for who I tell ya. Now she never tells me who she votes for and she picks up her book when I discuss politics.

    In several states by laws that have been fairly recently enacted, such as KY for these last several years, a 'write-in' is only counted if the person (or their agent) has registered them to receive 'write-in' votes. I can 'write-in' anyone in a 'general election' (but not a primary, as that is a 'closed' event), but that "write-in vote" will only be recorded to one registered to receive such votes.

    I understand, incidentally, that this practice has cost Mickey Mouse (who, somehow, seems to be an appropriate choice, in many instances) several thousand votes, each of the last several general Presidential election cycles.

    I don't think there's any question that Ralph Nader cost the Democrats the 2000 and 2004 elections.
