    I guess it should be in a form of a poll.....

    But, instead, I'll form this into a question:

    If you could do over your vote, and you knew that BHO was going to win the election..... would you still vote..... and if you would....

    (1)would you still vote the way you did on Nov 4th, or would you make a different choice?

    (2) Did your state have a write in on the ballot or 3 or more party choices?

    (3) Did you check out other party platforms and/or candidates ...... or just stick to the candidates offered on the Republican and Democratic tickets?

    (4) If you checked out any other candidate or party.... which others were of interest to you?


    Please don't attack each other in this thread.... nor hold the input of each other against them in other threads..... and PLEASE stick to answering these four questions first.... and then, if you wish, express your position or change in position.

    And thank you all for your candor and response.

    OK. This is either too hard, or maybe 13 or 14 who have viewed this thread didn't vote: So pardon me if I go first:


    1)... My vote would remain the same. I voted for the CP candidate.
    2)..Florida ballot had 14 choices including the write-in option.
    3)....Yes, I looked at the Republican and the Democrat statements and looked at the Libertarian and the Constitutional Party platforms and candidates.... and followed their statements, conduct and researched their backgrounds.
    4)....See 3. I was interested in any reports and news regarding candidates I didn't know, which were not in this group: The major networks were appallingly skimpy in their coverage of any in the running other than the two major parties. Its like they already knew who was padding their budgets with ad monies and neglected their duties to disseminate information and news to the public.

    See how easy this is? :thumbs:

    None of the people have taken office so none have don't creepy things. Why would our minds have changed at this point?

    Now there are some past elections that I would change my vote but for now I feel good about my choice...

    I would not have wasted the time voting. I made my 3rd party voting statement in 2004 for the CP.

    // (1)would you still vote the way you did on Nov 4th, or would you make a different choice? //

    Actually I knew my state (Oklahoma) would go for McCain (62%) and that BHO would be elected. So I voted, Obama was elected -- 11th time I voted, 11th time somebody was elected (Though in 2000 it was awhile before we knew)

    Windcatcher:
    // (2) Did your state have a write in on the ballot or 3 or more party choices? //

    The State of Oklahoma discourages third parties (there were no choice for President other than Obama or McCain). A write-in vote might invalidate the machine read ballot. So if you mess with the ballot, you might loose your vote for County Sheriff

    Not to laugh but it sounds like the highlight of the election was seeing who made Sheriff... :laugh:

    I will agree on one thing, AK, UT and OK are states you can count on to be red... Does anyone ever campaign in your state?

    I voted 3rd party if you will, and I do not regret it. Not that it mattered in TN. Save for the debates, I don't think the canididates were here at all after the primaries. Well, I take that back. McCain stopped in the tri-cities, but that's only because he needed to reach Virginia.

    I don't imagine many Obamanites would change their vote , but some of the far left wackos that believe he is their personal messiah have got to be feeling pretty stupid by now.

    They've been had.

    He hasn't been sworn in yet, hasn't made one executive decision and haven't sat one day in the oval office. Why would their view have changed, he hasn't had a chance to do anything right or wrong?

    Now the [email protected]'s might change their vote since he hasn't come to their rescue...

    I agree with the idea that I don't yet have any information on how my candidate will perform when he's in office I wouldn't change my vote. I still believe that Obama was and still is the best candidate for our next President.

    I would not change my vote. There were only two viable candidates IMHO. If I changed my vote that means I would have to answer to God for supporting the murder of millions of American children in their mother's womb.
