Nov. 2nd, 2004 @ 03:13 pm I've decided
The country is like a big ocean liner. We're headed in the wrong direction. Turning, however, is a slow, deliberate process.

We're best off getting the person most likely to even push the wheel a little. Once we've started going in a better direction, we can work harder at continuing that change. We have no chance at liberal reforms with Bush in office. I may agree with the Greens or even Nader-before-he-went-nuts more, but we're not going to get there without going through where Kerry is politically first. So it's okay for him to lead for a while.

Besides, he's twice the human being Bush is.

Obviously I voted. I know you all did. Hopefully your vote will count.

I'm cautiously optimistic about the high turnout, about the youth vote, about seeing the CNN story about Bush voting and him clearly being scared about Ohio. I think Kerry's in a better position than Gore was four years ago. And Gore won.

I don't know if I want to watch TV tonight or not. Besides Jon Stewart, that is.

I agree, as much as I want to vote libertarian, I can't right now

You read Thompson's article for Rolling Stone?

I'm with you, except in the ways that I'm totally not

I really, really wanted to vote socialist this time around... but came to the same decision as you- this election was neither the time, nor the place, for a third party candidate

Libertarian? I am so shooting you in the face. In a week.

According to John Zogby and Electoral-vote.com Kerry is in a better postion then Gore was last year.
