Re: 2008 Presidental elections

I do wish Hilary had won. *sigh* I guess this means I'll be voting for McCain in order to keep Obama out.

Re: 2008 Presidental elections

As we know from the topic Republican or Democrat, which is now closed, BFFC attracts a pretty equal balance of Republicans and Democrats.

On the boards, it's our stance to remain neutral, especially with political. The boards, especially the Fans forum, are meant to connect fans on their similarities rather than differences.

That said, let's focus on the positive.

Sorry, but I just wish I COULD see a positive in this election......

I personally think BOTH McCain AND Obama are bad for this country, possibilly VERY bad.  I think McCain is probably the lesser of the two evils, but that`s not something that makes me very cheery.......

I quite agree.

I don't want to get into any fights or anything so I normally stay silent on topics like this. So I'm probably gonna back out now.

Unfortunately, that won't be for 5 years when all soldiers are gone. At least it isn't as bad as Hillary Clinton saying she'll bring them home the next day (load of bollocks, that is). Plus, Obama has no real experience. He's been a senator for only a few years. That's it.

Re: 2008 Presidental elections

OK...

Let's clear the slate and all of this opinion, hearsay, and subjectivity with some research, facts, and objectivity so people have information:

Official Sites - know your own candidate and know the opponent
http://barackobama.com/ and http://www.barackobama.com/issues/
http://johnmccain.com/ and http://www.johnmccain.com/Informing/Issues/

Mainstream Cable/Online Media - what's making headlines (and how they vary) across the gamut
http://elections.foxnews.com/ - #1 cable news
http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/candidates/ - #2 cable news

Print/Online Media - more articles/substance than flashy blurbs and headlines of TV
http://politics.nytimes.com/election-guide/2008/
http://projects.washingtonpost.com/2008 … andidates/

Money - follow the money
http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/

Q&A Approach - by giving an opinion (or none) on the issues, you can see which candidate would fit the bill
http://minnesota.publicradio.org/projec … race_id=13

There's much more out there, but this isn't the message board for educating yourself. Feel free to add more links to educate. From legitimate sources please.

I would vote McCain if i could but i'm in a different country smile

Re: 2008 Presidental elections

I thought many of you guys were too young to offically vote anyway. In the US. The voting age is 18.

( which brings up the what age can you do things debate in my mind... like you can be 18 to vote. 17 to drive (sorta) 19 to smoke, 18 to fight and die for your country, BUT 21 to drink  and 25 (!) to rent a car. Does this make sense? To me... no.)

Re: 2008 Presidental elections

Si Titran, it's a pretty wide demographic here. Sure, some of the chatty members are young, but many are over 18, many are voters, many are educated. smile Boba Fett brings out a mix.

Re: 2008 Presidental elections

I unfortunately cant vote, however I can make my opinion known, and perhaps change some minds, not that I'm going to actively try to do that. But if someone hears someone else's point of view their may change

Re: 2008 Presidental elections

so it's official! Barack Obama, the Democraptic candidate, has chosen Joe Biden as his running mate. had he chosen Edwards, i would've disliked him even more. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/veepstakes

Re: 2008 Presidental elections

I think it would have been stupid to choose Edwards at the time considering the scandal surrounding him.

Re: 2008 Presidental elections

I don't even live in America but i would rather McCain got in over Obama.

Obama seems to wishy-washy. He can't get a straight answer on anything.

And Republicans are who i ussually would go for.

I know, wierd for a 12 year old to know much about politics.

Re: 2008 Presidental elections

So McCain has chosen Sarah Palin (no relation to Michael Palin, but that would be cool), http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080829/ap_ … akes_palin

From how you summed up both, I don't think you know much about politics. Don't give up learning, though.

Re: 2008 Presidental elections

Re: 2008 Presidental elections
