    No options for those of us who are not voting for Socialist1 or Socialist2?

        The constitutional party is not registered here in NH so I'm writing in Ron Paul.

          I am not America, but if I were, I would vote for a third party just to put a spanner in the works. I wouldn't let the system try and have it so easy. I wouldn't belong to a party either. I always found that a bizzare concept.

          Do you have a list of the candidates and what they stand for (policies) in the US? I'd like an A4 sheet of paper with their policy summaries at the very least. At least then if I am backing a horse, I'm not just taking a random punt.

          Also, the odds of turning the economy around calculated by the iTulip team would help to. Obama is 4:1, but this guy is 5:4 etc.

          If only, eh? Inform the voters hahahahah!

            Barack Obama will be a social disaster, and possibly an economic disaster as well. If you like "W" then you'll LOVE John McCain! Since the idiocy of Iraq is apparently not sufficient for him, maybe he will get us into a war with Russia over poor, oppressed Georgia, since every place on this planet must be of vital national interest to the United States, right? And neither one of these pseudo-socialists is living in the real economic world.
            I have decided to vote for the only available candidate who represents me: Chuck Baldwin - The Constitution Party.

              I live in MD so my vote really doesn't count. If it did, I'd hold my nose and vote McCain since I think Obama is an insubstantial, crypto-Marxist. As it is, I will be voting for Bob Barr.

                  Obama

                  He's intelligent, calm under attack, and not one of the good ole boys.

                  His lack of experience doesn't bother me, since I think he's smart enough to choose experienced advisers and listen to them. If he's wrong in some decisions, it won't be because he hasn't given it careful consideration and weighed all sides.

                  Regards his campaign funding from Wall Street . . . hey, if they want to give him money, why not? Doesn't mean he has to do what they say.

                  I'm outraged by the economic favoritism accorded the wealthy, and I would gladly lose some of my own money to see those criminals face justice . . . or at least be prevented from committing future theft. I'm hoping Obama will do that . . . .

                  Also, I like the fact that he's half black. How's that for embracing diversity . . . . ?

                    I can't vote as I'm not a US citizen

                    A popular sentiment amongst my friends would like to see Obama win simply because he's black and they would like to see America show that it's capable of electing someone who isn't white.

                    It would restore a lot of faith in the US amongst the ROW.

                      People surrounding Obama are far from being "crypto-Marxist". Brzezinski ????????????

                      Got to be kidding my friend :-)

                        I reluctantly voted McCain. I am giving up on the GOP and pray a third party can develop that really does want smaller government and has a libertarian type stance on other issues. I see both parties as guilty of where we are today. Obama with his big fund raising obviously will be tied to special interests big time, no change there.

                          How racist is this we vote for somebody's skin color? Why don't we elect Bambi so the world will love us? What about Obama reversing NAFTA, oh won't we be so popular if we start protectionism and stop buying all that foregin junk?

                            i already voted- for obama.
                            along with other reasons cited by others here [temperament, intelligence, race*, etc] i will add that he is more likely, in cooperation with a strongly democratic congress, to quickly pass the "new, new deal" legislation that will be needed to ameliorate the unfolding economic crisis. he's also been straight in declaring that sacrifices will be required, and is an inspirational enough leader to sell that idea.





                            * i think that electing a black president would be a very good thing for social relations within this increasingly multi-ethnic and multi-racial country. it would also be a strong assertion of american ideals - where else in the developed world could a black child of a single mother become president?

                              I just can't get past this race issue. Do we pick a latino next, or maybe an Asian, which is more deserving? Pick the man / woman for their ideals and leadership. I admire your clarity on Obama's real traits that qualify him for office but lets leave pity and show of compassion out of the equation.
