I do. I don't support any of the current running politicians. It startles me to even phathom Hilary getting into office... I'm finding myself slightly numb at not having much of a choice. I'll have to really do my homework on all the candidates and make the best decision out of the choices.

I usually feel that way. I find it hard to really put my support behind politicians because most of them are just so horribly corrupt!

I find it a complete waste of time & effort. Especially when you consider that even if 95% of the people vote for one person the electoral college can simply give the presedency to whoever they want. With all the political coruption you can almost bet those guys are being bought.

I'm on the record as being totally in favor of abolishing the Electoral College but there's no way what you say above could happen. The candidate gets the electoral votes for each state he or she wins and the one who gets to 270 Electoral Votes wins the election even if the other candidate wins the overall popular vote which is what happened in 2000. The Electoral delegates (I think that's what they're called but excuse me if I have the word wrong) CAN vote against their states popular vote but rarely if ever do. The scenario of 95% of the voters choosing one candidate and the Electoral College choosing the other is totally implausible. Annie

The 95% was more to demonstrate the point. These guys inevitably make the final decision. To me such power negates the relivency of the publics individual votes.

I know all I need to. This is my choice right here: www.RonPaul2008.com Dr. Ron Paul has been fighting for the People for 30+ years as a Congressman. I honestly believe he is the best choice.

Indeed I do, and it is not getting any better! Last night I was practicing saying President.....so and so, and then with the next name and frankly some of them left me feeling quite nauseated.

It's now 10 months later and it would seem at least one party is happy with their choices. Voter turnout and excitement over this Presidential election seems to be very high. Annie
