~I'm told that, since I'm a vet, I should vote for McCain. Since I'm a Mormon, people are scared I'll vote for Romney just because he's one. ~Black People are told that since they are Black, they should vote for Obama. (except by those who say he's, "not really Black"). ~People who are "really Black" are told they should vote for Hillary, because she is the wife of "The first Black Presidnent. ~Women are told they should vote for Hillary becaues she is a woman). ~"Real Christians" are told they should vote for Huckabee, because he's really a Christian (apparently unlike that Romney guy who is only a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). Maybe that's why the others couldn't drum up enough support. There supporters were for them based on Issues and their Records, not some arbitrary and meaningless demographic. I'm left wondering what a Black Women who is a Christian and a Veteran is told she should vote for. ;~D How about we vote with our brains instead of someone else's prejudices.

Apparently there's too much TV going on here. The only candidate worth a tinker's damn is Dr. Ron Paul, Texas Congressman. The voting that is currently going on and the voting that went on in at the very least the last 2 presidential elections are/were illogical and immoral. We got screwed by the computerized voting machines and by unethical voting officials that disposed of votes. Turn off the tube and do the research.

ParaTed let me ask you a question I am a member of the Taxpayer Demographic so who am I suppose to vote for. I am a member of the Church of Ronald Reagan so who am I suppose to vote for. I as a White woman would vote for a Black man like Clarence Thomas over any of these "White Guys" in a heart beat. Shoot I would take Ann Coulter, but not because she is a white woman like me but she is a real Conservative woman like me.

I guess we need to spit in the face of the new RINO party (what used to be called the Republican party) and start our own party. Thompson was are last hope... Romney is still a hope, but only with an asterisk.

How much more phony can you get than claiming to be a patriot, while blaming the U.S. for everything?

I don't care if someone is white, black, purple, male, female, Christian or another religion. What I decide my vote on is who I think is best for the job. Of course, I research where they stand on the issues, I watch the debates, I look at their records. Personally, I know who I am not voting for, just haven't decided yet who I am voting for. I look at this way, when I was a boss, I interviewed many people for one job, this isn't much different, I want the one who is going to get the job done the right way.

I guess because there are far too many people who vote along these (basically tribal) lines rather than trying to find out the answers that each candiadte or party has to the big issues. Because issues are complex, and they might find there isn't a nice simple answer (which is usually the desired outcome, then one can sleep the sound sleep of those with nothing on their minds...).

ln the end the donkeys will not bother to vote..but the republcans will muster their forces and the AARP and the like will get the older more wiser voters out in drove..early..and the younger voters will probabl take the davy off with pay and spend the time in the mall or go bowling and drink a few cold ones..but forget to vote..that's the way of the world

You haven't been paying attention have you. So far, in the primaries, the Democrat voter turn out is millions more than the Republican. You might be right with the younger vote though. Ron Paul has put a lot of stake in his support from the college students, but so far, their support has been all talk.

It will come down to the finish, but that doesn't mean it will be "good".
