    52% Believe Bush Will Win in November

    This is very telling in my opinion. It clearly indicates that the dems are facing in 2004 what us GOPers faced in 1996. They have a candidate they support, but which THEY believe cannot beat Bush. That means that likely, DEMS will NOT vote on election day just as a lot of GOPers didn't vote in 1996.

    To not vote is just stupid. Whats even more stupid is not voting just because there isn't a candidate you don't support.

    So if Hitler and Stalin are my two choices, I still should vote or I am stupid?

    Too many negatives.... what are you trying to say?

    Is it this: "What is even more stupid, is not voting just because there isn't a candidate [that you do] support? Not don't support?

    If you're country has gotten to the point where satans lover and beelzebub are your only two choices then I'm not going to rub salt in the wound by saying you're stupid, however, you know as well as I do that by not voting you are automatically casting a vote for the winner, whoever that may be.

    I vote so I guess you are directing your comments to those that I suggest might not vote.

    Anyway, yes and no on your point. Many see a "non-vote" as a "protest" vote. Maybe some dems will want to "protest" their party's choice and therefore, not vote. Maybe they won't want to vote for Bush, but also, they won't want to vote for Kerry as Kerry might not fit their true beliefs. To me, it is even MORE stupid to vote for somebody you don't like just because he is from the party of your choice. But that is just my humble opinion.

    I am.

    would it not make a better protest vote to your party if you voted for your party's opponent because you cared not for your party's choice? thats just MY humble opinion.

    In the case of satans lover and beelzebub, by not voting thus casting a vote for the winner, that'd probably be a good choice!
    :cof:

    (However, we are not in hell yet - well, maybe the liberals think they are ;) )
