All this about not allowing people to vote, look for a book called "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy" by Greg Palast, an investigative journalist who looked into all of this, it has a copy of a bit of the "scrub list" in it which was the list of people who were stopped from voting because they were "criminals", it has the criminal and all the info and the info of the person stopped from voting, some of whom were of different race from each other so unless they pulled a Michael Jackson, it is unlikely they were the same person

Was that the same topic in Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them? I read that in Florida, Katherine Harris had ordered people with the same names as likely criminals not to vote.

Governors don't mean a thing.

Who are you planning on voting for in November, as of now, Vorlon?

Bush is betting that his claim that we have maimed al-Qaeda is true- and a terrorist attack here would not muster the same unity for him this time.

America needs to focus more effort on reshaping the education system in the middle east, and allowing Westernization there. Without that I'd say terrorists and suicide bombers would exist in that region for another 20-50 years.

We need to care for both Pakistan and India, and control what people think there. That will become the most dangerous place on Earth.

Interpreting religion as a plan of action is never a good idea. If you can reduce religion to only the 10 commandments, you would have a better world. The idea of religious perfection is saddening to me.

What do you guys think of organizing a single national prison, in a penal colony in lets say Alaska? It would cetainly be affordable now, and the millitary can guard from prison breaks.

I say a penal colony for murderers, and other death/life penalty convicts.

The Death Penalty is always a tough issue for me to think about, so an unmonitored Penal Colony in the Pacific is the answer. I don't care if it ends up like Lord of the Flies, it would make for an interesting social experiment.

Ohio will go for Kerry, only if Pennsylvania does.

Pennsylvania hasn't been hard hit by jobs?

We're out of the recession belt AND anti-Bush.

If Bush wins I will have faith in fewer people, and I will develop more stereotypes.

Kerry will destroy our enemies and he understands honesty and responsibility more than Bush.

Bush is unconcerned of our future past this election.

I think Virginia will be much more closer than some of the 5% and under states, like Missouri for Bush or Kerry in Washington and Maine.

In the last 15 years, Florida has accelerated to become far more democratic. It is not a traditional Southern state, and the high migration rates to there will keep benefiting the Democrats. Ohio and Pennsylvania seem to have opposite trends, and will start becoming harder for the Democrats.

Edwards' message speaks best about free trade which makes him stongest in the midwest. He would put Tennessee, Virginia and Louisiana well into play though.

Richardson would certainly help Kerry. I'm against Vilsack, Bayh, or Gephardt. I really don't like the old Democrats and I don't want two on the ticket.

Warner is popular among rural voter, right? Put Iowa in the Kerry column. I'd like to hear Warner speak, I still haven't, but he looks and sounds like a strong VP pick.

Birth place or former residence doesn't matter. The Bush's are no longer popular in Connecticut, and Gore couldn't win Tennessee in 2000.

I don't like the moderates, although I suppose I like Lieberman. As long as fiscal responsibility, gun control, support for gay marriage, and a lack of compassion for the Bible Belters or the elderly I will lean towards that candidate (Dean fits this pretty well).

I'd say Michigan is more likely to vote Bush than Oregon. Michigan is made up of economic democrats. Those are the types that are going to start deserting from the democrats. The people of Oregon are social democrats. That is the gaining faction of the Democratic party.
