Why would you want to appeal to ignorant conservative voters???


I used to call myself an independent because I didn't want to be considered one of those people who practices "party politics". Those days are over now. Though I still don't consider myself a liberal, I am 100% against the conservative view/mindset and will vote Democratic at every turn just to prevent a conservative from taking a public office.

hear,hear...

especially with how in the last 15 years, the Republicans/conservatives have pretty much turned into Christian Fundamentalists along the same line as the Islamic Fundamentalists they fear and detest so much. I could never vote for anyone who would put us closer to a Christian based Theocracy...though we pretty much have been that anyway in the past

Contrary to what you might think, there are very intelligent people who consider themselves conservatives. They believe in individual liberties and Austrian economics. In that sense, they are "classical liberals" or "libertarians." They have largely been marginalized by social conservatives and the Christian right, who have taken over the Republican party to enforce their morality and assumptions upon others. That is the very antithesis of what real "conservatives" stand for.

I'll probably never vote for a Republican candidate for president, but I don't think all Republicans are as backwards as you think they are. Look at Jon Huntsman and Gary Johnson. They're reasonable men trapped in an unreasonable system; a system that pairs them directly with those whom they largely disagree with.

That's no way to speak to your board of representatives whose votes actually go towards choosing the next figurehead of the United States of America for the next four years!

Also, even if you believe this, this idea would only discount voting at the Presidential level.

Voting for your senators, representatives, state congressmen, state officials, governors, mayors, sheriffs, constables, county judges, other misc. local officials is extremely important to voicing your own opinion. Especially when so few people vote at the "lower" levels of politics - meaning your vote means more, statistically.

Voting is not stupid.

Everyone, take to the voting booths and vote for Barack Obama!
Or get enough people for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein to win.

those local elections and congressional elections are way more important too. people forget that the president can only really do so much. our government was formed intentionally like this.

we are definitely more effected by the local elections and the candidates and issues in them than the Presidential election. To me, the Congressional and Senate elections are more crucial to change in this country. Especially recently...

I hope someone gets 270, so we don't end up with Romney/Biden due to how our house and senate are weighted and how our election system is set up.

If noone gets 270, then the house picks the president and the senate picks the vice president. Unless I'm drunk or something.

Obama won. In other, more exciting news, Colorado has legalized marijuana and Puerto Rico is going to be a state!

That's a huge assumption. The poll results aren't clear yet AND Congress would have to approve statehood, which I doubt they would.

I'm calling his win through his incumbency advantage. As split as everything is, I think any advantage can tip the scales, and that's a pretty big one for the current president.
Glad to know that I can make some predictions that aren't completely off.
