    Get the neo-cons out of power and return the GOP to it's conservative roots.

    Is there really any other way?

    If there is, I certainly can't see it.

    I've given up on the party, anyway. It's only good for voting for conservatives that I like, in primaries, like Sabrin earlier this year. Otherwise, it's a GARBAGE party.

    I'm not even sure I like where the LP is going these days.

    I'll probably be voting for Baldwin, but I still may write in Paul.

    It was a shame that Sabrin lost, but at least BJ Lawson is giving David Price a good fight in North Carolina. I was happy to donate some money to Lawson, he's got a very sound message.

    What's wrong with the LP? You just don't like Barr, which I can understand, or something else?

    Baldwin's not a terrible choice, but I don't like his "traditional marriage, traditional family" rhetoric; or his protectionist ideas. You may want to check whether a candidate has to file for write-in candidacy in your state before you write-in Ron Paul, or your vote may simply be thrown away.

    This is the absolute gospel. Eisenhower warned us of this possibility. The Neocons: Cheney, Rummy, Shultz, Bruce Jackson and arguably Henry Kissinger, have taken advantage of the American people and profited greatly from 9/11, Iraq etc. Americans (especially Republicans) should be OUTRAGED.

    We really thought Sabrin had a great shot, too. I won't cry shenanigans, but something certainly seemed weird about the totals.

    I agree with the traditional family message, though. I don't care if you're gay, it's none of my business, but I do think the family unit and proper parenting in this country is falling apart.

    We're outsourcing our parenting now in this country, and it's sad.

    As far as my vote being thrown away, everytime I push the button I already feel like it is anyway.

    I don't feel good after voting in this country. I hate touch screen machines, and I hate the lack of paper trail.
