This is a simple one: Who did you vote for in the Presidential election?

Post Re: The Official Bobcatfans Exit Poll
I'm a libertarian. I believe in the right of free people to make the decisions. The other guys believe in taking your property and decision making and doling it out to others based upon what they think or see as "fair."

Capitalism is the best system ever known to man. Free markets work everywhere they are tried. If you aren't making a good life in a capitalist system, you aren't trying, because the opportunity exists for anyone to do well in their passion and be successful for it. I believe that my property is mine and I know best what to do with it and this includes charitable work and contributions.

I didn't go to college for 5 and a half years, working really long nights and weekends, with lots of student loans to show for it, to hone a profession that few can do like I can, so that I could make other people $500-1,000/year less impoverished because the collective thinks that is fair.

Socialism kills creativity and crushes man's desire to think, innovate, and create. It is the least fair of any system because it equally rewards the people who don't work hard in life with the ones that do all their life. A perfect socialist society is never possible because socialists aren't even happy when every last man is working in the same rice paddy, starving to death working on the rice they strive to cultivate for the central authority. When it isn't starving man of his life, liberty, and creativity, it is censoring, ignoring basic human rights, and religious freedoms, all under the guise of a "greater good." The ends of any socialist cause however never justify the means. NEVER.

A socialist system is a system for the government, rather than the people that it claims to help. The progressive taxing system kills innovation, businesses, and job creation. The only thing that a out paces a socialist taxing plan is the spending that goes with it. By the time the nation realizes the taxing and subsequent spending on those who aren't producing anything is starving the country, it is too late. Socialism has failed everywhere it has tried because it taxes and spends the nation into oblivion.

Am I upset that we're on the brink of electing a far left, socialist to the White House? You bet. Any serious student of history, government, or economics knows better than to trust a country to the rhetoric and good looks of a socialist demagogue. Far too many people have been fooled by the two faced candidate that the Democrats have nominated. We just better hope that we can come out of this in 2012 with the nation and rule of law still in tact.

With that said, I'm not going to vote for someone that took money from one group of people (taxpayers) in order to reward the bad behavior of people (Obama) or corporations (Obama and McCain). The thing is, being a libertarian, it's easy to be consistent as I am, because I believe in the principles I listed above. I don't play games, I don't pit groups of people against each other. I want everyone to succeed and the best way to do that is to let government get out of the way and let people do what they do best, create, innovate, and spend money freely.

You guys can keep voting for someone that claims they will do x, y, or z for you. Meanwhile, I'm going to make x, y, and z happen for myself, because in the end, I'm the one in control of that.

I voted for the person that, while he doesn't perfectly fit all those values, he most closely matches those values.

Good grief, Mal. Talk about "blah, blah, blah." Way too long to read on my Blackberry.

Christ Mal, this was just little poll... We weren't looking for a mini-dissertation on your voting philosophy--I think most have a pretty good idea of how you feel about it by now.

For the record, I can really respect people that vote Libertarian because most of them cast that vote based purely on political beliefs, typically without regard for personality.

We don't have any money for what the candidates want to do? What about the supporters? What happens when it becomes apparent to them Obama can't turn water into wine..er um gas just because we don't have the money?

At least according to this lady we all get free gas and mortgage coupons courtesy of Obama.

Thank you. The American Idol'ization of this process has a real sad thing for someone like me to see. The founders never intended for everyone to vote and for good reasons, which we won't go into here.

Casey, get a real mobile device. Blackberries are the tool of the bourgeoisie used to keep you down. :wink:

Speaking of my diatribe: You know I got a little carried away yesterday evening and I feel it coming on again, so bear with me.

I can actually explain my position a little better than just waving a magic wand that says "change" and "hope" without knowing what that means. Excuse my ability to explain myself beyond political hero worship. :lol:

In 1971 a book was written about how to use the words "hope" and "change" and the despair of a nation to overturn the government toward socialist control using the middle class to enslave people with higher taxes, more government, and fewer personal freedoms. The book was "Rules for Radicals" written by Saul Alinsky, taught by one Barack Obama as a community agitator straight out of college. We better hope that there are a group of Republicans in the senate that grow a backbone. The working class tax payers is going to need a lot of help the next 2-8 years. This guy is dangerous and he won't stop until everyone is equally miserable. Jimmy Carter's malaise is nothing on what this guy wants and secretly believes in.

If McCain had campaigned like his concession speech last night he may have won.....but also if he had chosen someone other than Tina Fey he may have won also. 8)

McCain is a terrible campaigner and had it not been for a weak field of Republican nominees, he would have never won the nomination. Despite all the stupidity of chasing votes from the left within the party, he still managed to get within a few percentage points in a year when a Democrat should have won handily.

Gloat, but the left isn't as well off as you think they are. Especially when they prolong the recession that they largely helped create.
