If K-Bikes.com were the US voting public...

and the vote were conducted in a forum poll, who would you vote for?

If you have a write in candidate, you can reply in the thread.

I realize that Ron Paul is not officially running, but in both places I previously ran this poll, enough write-in responses warranted adding him to the list.

I'm a bit astonished that Obama isn't listed in the Socialist party. He clearly belongs there.
Oh Gee I'm not sorry at all about calling a shovel a shovel either. Because that just relegates him to TOOl status. No one can criticize him though. No one dares except those who percieve the web he weaves. And to everyone else he plays the race card, and they go for it. To think that this country thought Slick Willy was slick. I can't wait to see who he picks for a running mate. Be ware though Hillary will still be in Denver at the convention.

It has been interesting to watch Obama rise from mere obscurity to become the Democratic new hope. Kinda like the Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars Epic of Washington politics.

I'm not sure how this will turn out, considering the two leading candidates are both Democrats. Just look at McCain's voting record... He's practically a Democrat. It will be interesting to see the end game on this one. It could either be another close one with everyone contesting ballot chads (but another bellweather election state), or Obama will fall like McGovern did in '72. I don't see a landslide going the other way. After watching the Ali/Frasier bouts of the Democratic primaries, there are too many disenfranchised centrist democrats to make an Obama landslide a possibility.

There's being left of center, and then there's being WAAAAAAAY too left of center. And I think those are the two leading choices we have. There is no right this year, and maybe that's not necessarily a bad thing. But that's just my opinion.

Question for the group: Rather than a non-vote, wouldn't it be better to cast a vote in protest for one of the non-mainstream candidates? Or write-in your preferred candidate. I think the news of a write-in candidate or a Cynthia McKinney getting an "unusual" number of votes would be very telling.

Also, how important will the choice of VP be in your decision?

Right.

I believe Ross Perot blew that theory to hell last century.


As of right now, you have 78 views, and a total of 19 votes.
13 of them are solidly in the Republican camp, the other
6 are unanimously RT riders.

tell me again why you bother to run political polls over here ??


tim-----still on the right side of the frostline

you can't stop the signal

You know...kinda funny...but....the only one there i would trust for his word is Ron Paul......and maybe some day the country will wake up and vote for someone honest and that you know will stand by his word.....but just like all the other sheep...its gona be J Mc...Ron Paul is a good man...and tells it like it is..we all know he is right..but we just stay the same ol shit time after time...and then we bitch about it...just the way it is i guess....to bad it gets to the point that doing what is right makes you look like an outsider....New Government Seal:


Official Announcement:
The federal government today announced that it is changing its emblem from an Eagle to a CONDOM because it more accurately reflects the government's political stance. A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives you a sense of security while you're actually being screwed!

Damn, it just doesn't get more accurate than that.
