    Sick of Bush? Sick of Kerry? There IS an alternative.

    http://www.grassrootsrevolution.tk

    Basically, if you live in a state that's guaranteed to vote a certain way, vote for dean. IE: The Universe would implode if Virginia did not vote republican, or New York democratic. Since it's unlikely that a few votes are going to make a difference there, why not vote for Dean as a write in? If he gets just 5% of the popular vote he'll qualify for federal matching funds in 2008, guaranteeing him campaign funds in that election.

    This is basically what a friend of mine and I came up with after a long political discussion, when we compared notes and realized most of the people we know are going to vote for Kerry, not because they like Kerry but because they want Bush out of office. This is not the way American politics should work. This is not the way it HAS to work. We don't need to be stuck choosing the lesser of two evils. If we put some hard work into it, we can get a candidate into office that actually has a chance of doing some positive good for this country. It'll take time, but it's about time we sent a message to the major parties: we're sick of this, and we want the system to change. [/rant].

    I try to never get political with friends on these forums but I feel Bush is insane. I'd vote for Pee Wee Herman before I vote for him.
    I agree with you that we need to send a message. But my top priority is to get rid of tyrant Bush. I'm in a state that is going to be very close and I hope for the first time in my life my vote will actually count.

    It is not often that I choose to disagree with a moderator.
    I believe we did vote with bullets once upon a time here...it was called the civil war. That didn't turn out all that well as we still have a "division" in this country that exists to this day.
    Getting rid of slavery was a good thing...Americans killing other Americans instead of using the ballot box was not.

    I would not take the chance. What if enough decided to do this. I would not want Dean in office, so I will not take the chance.

    Heck with it, write me in. At least you know conservation would be a top priority! Don't think I'd get the campaign contributions from big paper companies, though....

    Er, Khai, politics IS derived from cultural values, so of course politicians will be anthropocentric. The very basis of the political univer DOES revolve around human experience and values.
