They all support status quo politics, they're all members of CFR, and they all support further anti-gun legislation. There really isn't that big of a choice here, people.
How about we just assume a scenario where the candidates actually accomplish what they say they will and vote for them based off of that. I will take the guy who is at least claiming to want similar things that I want, instead of the candidates who aspire to all that I despise.
You are right, this isn't a hard choice for conservatives or liberals. There is a very clear difference between the choices on the Dems and Republicans sides.
Shall I ask what top 2 or 3 issues are important to you and see if Obama, Clinton, or McCain agree with your priorities?
Right now my top 3 issues are:
The War on Terror/Security against terrorism.
Moral Issues (Gay marriage/appointment of conservative judges/abortion, etc.)
Assuming McCain, Hillary, and Obama do what they say they will, McCain wins hands down. Tell me how baldy each will fail and I may change, but we can't assume very well how they will fail, can we? I will go this route. I bet if a few more straight ticket Dems would go this route, they would see they are voting for the wrong candidates. Maybe not though, Dem straight ticket voters are not the brightest bunch of people I have ever been around.
