    So out of curiosity, I am wondering who y'all will vote for (as of now, according to current information, etc.) to be President of the United States of America for the 2008 Presidential Election. :) You don't have to explain unless you just want to, this is mostly just to satisfy my curiosity. :p

    Ron Paul here. :D (if I could vote... I'll be about 6 months short of the right age. Bah.)
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I voted Ron Paul, but SpyridonOCA is beginning to turn my stomach on him.

    You didn't have the option of voting for nobody.

    I would exclude Hillary from the list on the grounds that

    a) she is a woman*

    and

    b) she is from an existing oligarchy - in a nation of 300 million people, at least one fifth of which should be theoretically eligible to be president, you shouldn't have two people from the same family get the job. We have enough oligarchy as it is.

    Not that it matters. Whoever is elected will have quite limited power to change anything and so business will largely go on as usual. Some country or other will be invaded, corruption on high levels will still be a fact, etc...

    I like how it is put in "The Hichhiker's Guide to the Galaxy":

    * This to say that women are too good for politics, not the other way around.

    There were 2 or 3 others I left out, too, because the poll limit was 10. Sorry.

    The Libertarian Party hasn't chosen their candidate yet, so I'm not sure.

    It would be nice if someone could explain to me how this supposed "democracy and government" in North America works.

    Hey, K3, they won't explain it to me - you might as well not hold your breath.

    I just think political passions are something the Church will gradually cure us of if we let it. (For me this happened after the 2004 election; up to that time I had been a political animal.)

    It's part of "the Christmas Culture" of the West; the focus on trying to turn this world into the Kingdom of God through our efforts. This is not to say that nothing should be done, but we, in general, seriously overestimate the importance of political action.

    There is truth in the Evangelical hymn "This world is not my home, I'm just a-passin' through..."

    :| Ron Paul is the most suitable candidate, just like he bashed Abraham Lincoln and his policies on live tv, he will denounce most of the corrupt examples of American history... :sick: :help:we won't be true Americans until we experience Ron Paul. :sigh:

    I voted for Thompson.... for VP... :p
    If my naturalization comes through in time I'm really going to have to think about things again... I've got issues with all the Republican candidates who remain... McCain leans across the aisle a bit too much, Romney I'm not sure how he'll look at Christianity in the end, Huckabee can go live with all his illegal immigrants, Guiliani looks very doubtful right now although I like him on a lot of issues, Ron Paul will probably be wearing one of those straight jackets like his supporters are by the time this campaign is over...

    The Rep. debate was really good tonight...one of the best this election season. Romney was the best I've ever seen him this evening.
