Would you vote

  1. Anybody who dodged their way out of Vietnam is ok with me. That conflict was about lining pockets not our freedom. Good for him.

    Just curious, out of the candidates running, who do you wish would have won? Where do you think this country would be now if they had won?

    This was like I was a kid in grade school. When Kennedy and Nixon was running in 1960 the teacher held up a picture of each and asked us all who we would vote for. There is something I have never forgotten. Several of them picked Kennedy BECAUSE he "was handsome", "had the best haircut", "was younger", "the best looking one", etc, etc. Not one of those that picked Kennedy said one single thing about his "policy's" or his party platform.

    Looks like some have held to that all their life. No wonder they NEVER win a debate on different policy's, they do not understand it.

    What a lot of people don't realize is only about 9%
    They also did all could to make Nixon uncomfortable a flimsy podium extra hot lights just on him so he would sweat like a pig..

    Yep poor Franks kidneys went out and we had him put down. 17 years of being a buddy it was the hardest thing we have had to do.

    Voting for any true politician is like choosing the lesser of two evils. They will say what needs to be said until they get into office, then they will do what needs to be done to stay in office. You almost have to decide based on a handful of your core beliefs that you think they will hold to and just hold on for the ride. In a sense they all lie to us, but to answer your question, it would depend on if there was a better candidate. They may lie to your face but the other candidates may be worse. So do you not vote at all?? Not sure. I’ve always said, if you don’t vote, keep you mouth shut and don’t complain for the next four years until you can vote...

    I don’t think a person should be judging others if you don’t have the balls to vote for someone. If you don’t vote then you give up the chance to complain so shut up.

    I feel pretty much the same way with the exception being I feel this way about anyone who would have a desire to run for any position .
