    Looking at the thread I see that she no longer supports the Republicans.

    Oh well, personally I'm more cynical than that now. I've lost trust in all political parties now. Makes it difficult to figure out who to vote for. I was considering turning up to vote, taking a look at the ballot paper and just vote for some nobody that I hadn't even heard of before. I'm probably not going to be home on voting day now anyway so I won't need to worry about it.


    I just like pushing buttons and if that means stepping on republican and democrat toes, so be it.

      American presidents seem to be getting worse every time. Obama is now the new target to top in terms of being the most awful President America has ever had.

        Question is... is it because people (as a whole) are slowly getting dumber?

          Democrat Party, Republican Party, Libertarian Party...is there a "I could care less" party? I would join it.

            Yes, and it's the same here.

            Dumb may be a harsh word actually. More like mass indoctrination in something that is a complete cancer to society.

              Sounds like a good party to me. Besides, I thought political parties are just an excuse to accept legal bribes (in the forum of 'campaign contributions').

                Just try dealing with some of them on civics. It can be rather amusing.

                    Darth Ovious, get your hazmat suit on if you decided to tackle some of those in Civics.

                      Could be worse. We could live in Sweden. They're completely nuts.

                        If I was to pick a side; I'd call Libertarians rather conservative (since they want to turn the US government into more what it resembled long ago).

                          Was he nominating, or being nominated?

                            I'm blonde enough to fit into Sweden, but not liberal enough. Oh well.

                              Sorry, my post was connecting term hippie with liberal. I got that she was actually a libertarian.

                                Yeah, Mr Baby Murderer requires a level 100 hazmat suit (he used to argue with Tazzy Wazzy and Co; I'm sure he already has one).
