I guess I should have called it the Inadequate American Political Poll.


And Yorick, I do not presume that everyone here is American. I'm not that ignorant, I was just not giving it enough thought.

[img]graemlins/wow.gif[/img] WHAT??? Do you mean that there are non-Americans here? I am shocked! Shocked, I say! I thought that since y'all spoke English, you must be Americans. j/k

Well, I was pretty sure I would offend someone.

As for Democrat line, I was kidding and hoping to nudge a few to respond.

OK, consider me nudged. I usually prefer to not discuss my political views, but I am a Democrat; furthermore, I always vote the straight Democratic ticket on the ballot. The last time I voted Republican was when Reagan ran for reelection - never again.

Economically speaking, when the Democrats are in power the people who truly deserve and need help get it. The rich may always get richer and the poor get poorer (as the saying goes), but this doesn't occur at as steep a rate with the Dems. In addition, I have a hard time supporting anyone who is politically beholden to special interests that wish to legislate our moral values.

The reason that I always vote the straight Democrat ticket is that I do not want to give any "up and coming" Republican a chance to get any political experience, no matter how admirable they may be. In later years they will probably have to bow to their party's wishes on important issues, so I prefer to cut off their political ambitions at the knees, so to speak. BTW, I am only halfway joking here

Don't misunderstand, I have some liberal leanings but I'm not a rabid leftist - I tend to be moderate in most things. I am, however, concerned with the direction the U.S. has taken since Reagan has been in office.

I can only agree with you Desuma. THe whole country has gone to hell since the gipper left the oval office. Ever since we let Bush Sr.get in there it has been like the 3 stooges only with Georgie,Billy, and "Shrub".
