Was just bored and wanted to see how everyone voted in the past (why they voted that way try to keep the reply down to 2 or 3 sentences. and who everyone is going to vote for this fall and why and other other little things they had to add

I will start this out to when i started


1992 BUSH VS CLINTON
VOTED CLINTON - why cause bush lied about taxes and thought he was in office way too long

1996 CLINTON VS DOLE
VOTED CLINTON -- why cause i thought he was doing a good job and DOLE was just too old

2000 GORE VS BUSH
VOTED GORE --- why cause i really did not care for bush

2004 BUSH VS KERRY
VOTED DID NOT VOTE ---- Did not think either one of them was worth the vote

2008 OBAMA VS MCCAIN
VOTED DID NOT VOTE --- Obama did not have enough experience and MCCAIN VP picked was awful

2012 OBAMA VS ROMNEY
WILL VOTE ROMNEY --- Obama showed he did not have the experience to be President


Other
Obama loses he should run for congress in the next election and then take some time and see what he did wrong and go back to his roots and stop listening to all of the people whos telling him to do stupid shit .. and RERUN In 2024 after he has more experience .....
WOOOO I STINK

Just missed 1996 as I turned 18 a week or so after the election, so 2000 was my first year voting.

2000: Gore
2004: Kerry
2008: Obama
2012: Obama

Interesting...
2000 GORE VS BUSH
Voted for some no-name third (fourth?) party candidate because I was young, brash and didn't care for any of the main stream names.

2004 BUSH VS KERRY
Voted for... wait for it... John Kerry. I really, really didn't like Bush.

2008 OBAMA VS MCCAIN
Chuck Baldwin. Not my favorite candidate ever, but the best of that bunch.

2012 OBAMA VS ROMNEY
Likely, Gary Johnson. Or I'll just take a dump on the ballot and turn it in. Haven't decided which yet... guess I'm an undecided voter.

1988: Dukakis <- first election. Turn 18 the month before
1992: Clinton
1996: Clinton
2000: Gore <- Big fan of his vision, so bummed he "lost"
2004: Kerry <- Didn't like him very much but voted for Party
2008: Obama
2012: Obama

Yes I am a proud Democrat. Are they perfect, Hell no but they match my beliefs more so than the GOP. And yes, I read the Party Platform every election cycle to verify.

First time voting was in 2008, and I voted for Obama. I had the opportunity to vote in 2004, but frankly, didn't like either candidate very much.

Dukakis? Goddamn, you're old!:lol: I still remember the feeling when it was announced that he lost. It was not a good one.

I missed 96 by a couple weeks like dmaul, but I've voted Democrat in every presidential election. This year will be different.

Btw, I think that the biggest news in this thread is that slidecage is AT LEAST 38 years old.:rofl:

1992 BUSH VS CLINTON
Wasn't voting age yet-Would have voted for Bush or Perot, Bush moreso now, as I've come to appreciate that he was one of the best Presidents we've had in a LOOOOONG time

1996 CLINTON VS DOLE
Think I voted Perot.

2000 GORE VS BUSH
Didn't vote because I hated the choices

2004 BUSH VS KERRY
Didn't vote because I hated the choices

2008 OBAMA VS MCCAIN
Didn't vote because I hated the choices

2012 OBAMA VS ROMNEY
Told myself I was going to vote just so I felt good, and that vote was going to be for Obama, but the civil liberty thing, the extended, continuing, and threatening of wars that he has been pushing, puts him in the same category as Bush II. Romney is slimey, I don't trust him, I think he is just as (chicken)hawkish as Obama, and further ruin America's image overseas. Now I will either not vote because I hate the choices, or write in Ron Paul. It will be fun to see how many write-ins he gets in Oregon. He is very popular here, so I suspect it may actually register.

The only Republican I can think of who I would vote for next election (after Obama crushes Romney in this one) is Chris Christie. I like that he's an anti-politician of sorts, he stands by his views instead of changing based on recent polls (for good and for bad), and frankly...I just get a kick out of him. Assuming Santorum and Bachmann consider running again, I would vote for Hitler over those two (if it weren't for that pesky non-citizen thing)

I don't have a clue who would run for the Democrats, but if it was a compelling choice it would be a hard election for me. While I like Christie, I'm sure he is polar opposite of me on some important issues. Haven't looked into him enough yet.

Likely front runners for 2016 are Hillary Clinton, Andrew Cuomo (gov. of NY) and Martin O'Malley (gov. of MD).

Clinton still? She has been looking VERY ragged these days. I know there's a double-standard for female politicians and all, but based on her appearance (she's aged significantly, put on a lot of weight) I didn't think she would have a chance or the desire. I could be wrong. I would vote for a kick to the testicles over her though.

Don't know enough about Cuomo or O'Malley to say if they would win my vote over a potential Christie election. I suppose I'll see some other contenders during this week's DNC.

Edit-Oh Fuck me. Apparently Rush Limbaugh basically said the same thing. That's it. I'm going to hell. I despise that miserable fat bastard Rush. Argh.

I remember Clinton v (Dole I think it was?) in elementary school and voted for Clinton. I remember we did it in 2004 in high school and and I had no idea who Obama was and I was like WTF? "BAYYRACK OBAMMUHH?". Alan Keys it was *facepalm*. Yeah, torn between voting for Brobama again, leaning towards Johnson but it's one of those "Vote that matters" kind of things.

Depends where you live I think, if you live in New York or something it won't sway who the state goes to because it's not a swing state, but if you're in PA like me, it's definitely a 'vote that matters'.

HAHAHA...he's actually pretty thin or at least he was a couple years ago. He posted some stand up he did in another thread. His material was ok, but timing could've used some improvement along with delivery.

I don't vote.

If forced at gunpoint, I'd write in Donald Duck or something.

For posterity, I was a neocon in 2004. Glad I decided to lift weights and do wind sprints instead of vote, otherwise I'd have a Bush vote over my head.

I don't know - some liberatarians just come off as misguided liberals, but this guy isn't one of them. Berzirk has fully absorbed the bigotry and misogyny of the GOP, and he seems to be particularly angry at women.

Was his standup any good? Doug Stanhope is proof that Libertarians can be funny, but I have a feeling that this guy is no Doug Stanhope.

I don't think he's a misguided liberal either, but there's definitely some dissonance going on with him, especially with his views on Malcolm X; it couldn't be more opposite from how the GOP frames him.

Yeah, he was ok. I've seen a lot worse and a lot better. It's a really tough gig, so I'm not going to hold that against him. His politics is another thing though.;)

Am I the only one that doesn't like Stanhope? I mean, he has his moments, but he just seems really angry and just complaining instead of actually trying. The "I'm cool enough to smoke while performing" shtick isn't helping either....

And never not vote, there are local elections that are very important, and if you have initiatives this could Fuck up your state beyond all recognition like in California. We have a habit of voting for luxuries and not wanting to pay for them. You fuckers who don't vote could help in that area. If you're going to vote for luxury items, don't vote against taxes.

I don't think Stanhope is the funniest, but something about his act fascinates me. He seems to thrive off of chaos and I find that interesting.

McCain vs Obama. Went with McCain pretty much based off experience.

Romney vs Obama. I am leaning towards Romney since I'm really not a huge fan of Obama due to his performance in office. But I haven't made my final decision yet.
