Ok this may cross the line, but I am not afraid to show my political party favorite and think that it would be fun to see who would win a Presidential election, on a Chiefs Planet.

Let me state- up until the election it is OK to change your vote if you feel the need- on the day of the election all votes will be final, tallied, and official. Please indicate on your post if you are changing a previous vote (this will make it easier for me to keep a running tally on votes.

No Non-candidates will be counted. Example: I really want to vote for ALGORE, but instead i think I will choose Rich Gannon. However, all candidates on the ticket are acceptable (i.e. Ralph Nader)

And with that being said let me cast the first vote for:

George W. Bush

Maybe we can send the results to the news media for a Chiefs fan poll so that they can get a feel for the Football fan vote. Note: non-Chief Fans, feel free to vote, but state that you are not a Chief Fan so that we can run a secondary poll for Non-Chiefs fans picks.

The candidate that best represents my political philosophy is Harry Brown of the Libertarian Party. He has no chance to win. This leaves me the choice of picking the evil of two lessors. Bush is closer over all to my way of thinking than Gore However: I do like the Balance created between Congress and the White house with a liberal executive and a conservative congress. The true lasting power of a President is in the appointment of Judges. These are lifetime appointments and will have a great lasting impact on our lives. My legal philosophy is almost evenly divided between the left and the right. I detest the authoritarian attitude of the right and have great disdain for the meddlesome protect us from ourselves attitude from the left. So what is a person to do?
I guess my vote is for Bush. I see him as slightly less full of excrement than Gore.

I am also much closer to the libertarian way of thinking.

Government should protect our borders, protect individual rights listed in the constitution, and enforce justice against those that violate those rights.

Government should pretty much stay out of all else.

Since neither party will do that, will go with the party that will take less from my wallet.

George Bush it is!

I am a Libertarian, but there is no way a Libertarian gets the office. So I am stuck with Gore or Bush. I don’t like either. But the decision is simple: I cannot abide the thought of Gore picking Supreme Court Justices. I want my Court conservative. Rule strictly by the Constitution. I hate to see the Judicial system legislating from the bench.

Therefore, with sadness in my heart, a tear in my eye and a bad odor in my nose, I will cast my vote for Bush.

I hate the 2 party system. Partisanship overrides sense of duty. With that being said I lean towards the conservative side and am partially responsible for the last 8 years as I voted for Perot in 92'.

I won't make that mistake again. So, I will vote for Bush.

One last thing, since the 2 party system is here to stay I wish the issue of term limits would be raised again. Many republicans elected to congress in 94 were elected because they supported term limits, only to table the issue once they gained control.

I don't trust any of them.

I am from Hillsboro (a suburb of Portland). You might be surprised how many of us there are. We just aren't talked about as much in the media. Kinda like the Chiefs not getting any publicity because it is not glamorous.

Example: Do you report about people that are generally conservative and don't create exciting news headlines or do you report about the protesters at the WHO rallies. Everyone imagines a bunch of "tree huggers" (no offense meant if you love trees) here in Oregon, because we have a lot of trees . Well, it may surprise a lot of people to know but there are a lot of large companies here in Oregon. (Nike and Intel, and many other Tech comapnies are very big where I live)

Bush and company have been here a lot trying to get the vote!

Anyhow, the tally is now

Bush 12-13 (need to see if Busch Light vote is really for GW)

Gore 4

There are things that I like and dislike about both canidates, but my policital views are closer to the Libertarian view than the 2 major parties. The paradox with George Bush is that he wants to "Empower" the individual except in the area of abortion, whereas he wants the government to decide what a woman can and cannot do with her body. For that reason alone, I must (unenthusiastically) vote for Al Gore.

Gaz
10-05-2000, 01:18 PM

That is true, Bush does feel that abortion does kill innocent children, that's a normal conservative view.

Gore at one time was against abortion but has turned into a killer of innocent children, which, is one more reason I can't vote for him.

candidate: Nader

Non-candidate: Ventura

If I had to pick between one of the two major yahoos, I would pick Bush because I think that he will screw things up worse (start taking more individual rights) than Gore and maybe people will start to see how full of bunk this two party system is. The tax issue is moot. Niether one will be able to do anything with it.<BR>

OCF-

In general, Libertarians are oriented towards individual rights and responsibility. They are willing to take personal responsibility for the choices they make and do not want the government making those choices for them.

For example, most Libertarians would not prevent you from smoking dope, but would punish the crap out of you if you got stoned and caused a car wreck. Most Libertarians wonder exactly what National Security Issues were at risk in Bosnia. Most Libertarians would oppose the government limiting abortion, even though they might be personally against it. Most Libertarians want less government intrusion in every aspect of life, both social and economic arenas.

Libertarians tend to hold to the Constitution, period. You will find that most are states rights advocates who want the smallest Federal government possible.

Since the Constitution provides the foundation for the Libertarian viewpoint, they tend to be more conservative than liberal, but this should not be confused with Republican Vs Democrat.

Ralph Nader is the green party.

Actually I am much more of a Libertarian than a republican. The Libertarians believe in a MUCH smaller goverment and much less legislation. Everyone being held accountable for their own actions. No stupid laws that try and legislate what your morals should be.( The main difference ). The only laws would those that infringe on others rights. It's a great party actually.

I ask this purely out of curiosity and in no way to question your decision in this highly unscientific staw poll. As a Libertarian, doesn't it gall you to have to make a lesser of evils choice, when the legitimacy and future of the Libertarian party could hinge on a good showing on Nov. 7th? Were I to become a Libertarian and care passionately about the monopoly of a corrupt two party system ruining the future of the country, I'd be hard pressed not to stick with my principles and vote for my candidate, even if it was only symbolic. Thoughts?

Durtman-

It sticks in my craw something fierce.

To be honest, the Libertarian party is more of a philosophy than an actual party. We will not win the Presidency. We will not control Congress. We will not eliminate the despised two-party system that is crushing this society, IMO.

Like it or not, the two-party system is so entrenched that we may never be rid of it. A Libertarian candidate has zero chance of becoming President.

So I am faced with a choice:
1. Be dogmatic and vote Libertarian despite the sure knowledge that my man CANNOT win.
2. Be pragmatic and vote for the Republican or Democrat who is closest to my perspective.

I choose pragmatism, but I do not like it.

George W. Bush.

I do not believe in Socialism.

I do not believe that the State is more important than the individual. I do not believe that the State is smarter than I, nor do I believe it knows what is best for me. I do not believe that you empower people to greatness by making them dependent on you (through fear, intimidation, or economics). I do not believe in world government (unless it's ours).

I believe politicians are elected to make hard choices about which programs are a high enough priority to fund, not easy choices about how much more revenue can we raise (or debt can we withstand) to fund every program we want.

A vote for Al Gore is a vote for the above.

I don't vote along party lines, but for the better candidate. I wanted Bush in '92, and Clinton in '96 over Dole. In my eyes, the better candidate is clearly Gore. He's a very smart man, and yet I don't agree with everything he says and does, I'd much rather have him leading our country than Braindead Bush.

Gore it is.

Chiefaholic
10-05-2000, 02:50 PM
Problem with our voting system is that 50% of the voting power in this country only pays a small percentage of the taxes. The actual people that pay the burden of the taxes in this country are misrepresented at the polls. Those 50% want candidates that will give them more because it will be paid for by others. The Dems thrive on this and use scare tactics to make these people think they will lose their government benefits if a Republican is elected. Bigger government, more taxes, and the people that pay the burden are not fairly represented at the polls. Doesn't seem right.

The Republican party isn't perfect either but it is closer to what I believe in. My vote goes to Bush.

This is a tough one.

I absolutely dislike Bush as a person. There's something about him that just annoys me. I also dislike Cheney. But, Bush's values and beliefs and programs are things that tend to go along with what I believe in.

I dislike Gore a little less, he comes off as more personable. I also really like Lieberman. Unfortunately, Gore agrees with very little that I believe in.

So the sticking point for me is the fact that whoever is elected President is going to be in charge of nominating Justices. And I want a President that will nominate conservative Justices that will back up the Constitution.

So, reluctantly, I'll be voting for Bush.

If we can keep more of our money, then possibly more MOMS will be able to stay at home and help raise the children. When Moms
have the CHOICE to stay at home, MORE kids will have a better chance of keeping thier heads turned on straight.

I am not a male chovinist pig either.
My wife and I have no children. I have 5
other brothers and sisters. I have observed
and learned alot from them and how there
kids turned out.

It only makes since that if we can keep more of our money, we can spend more time at home.
When parents spend time at home, it helps the FAMILY.

This is one of many reasons why George W. Bush will receive my vote.

Well, it looks like we may have exhausted the topic out. Thought I might give it one more go in case interest is still there in anticipation of this week's debate.

If no interest, then we may have a winner.<P>

Pam,

You really need to look at the creditability of Gore. The man follows Clinton and is a compulsive liar. I find it hard to take that an educated woman would vote for the likes of Gore. Nader would be a better choice. Better write in "None of the Above", that would surely be a better use of a vote.

I have only chosen to eliminate Gore from the race due to his inability to be consistantly truthful, politicians are bound to lie, even his running mate has changed course with his freedom of choice for women. As a devout Jew he has gone against all that his religion believes in this area.

LOTSA LUCK

Pam - I am assuming you are bothered by the elder Georges inability to keep his promise with the "No new taxes" verbage. And I understand. However, your logic has enough holes to drive a truck through.

#1. George W was not the man who said "No new taxes", it was his father.

#2. If dishonesty bothers you, then you are foolish to vote for a man who already admitted to several lies in the past 3 weeks alone (prescription drug prices, visiting Texas during the flash fires, little girls with no place to sit in school, taking money from the film industry only days after condenming the exact same people for promoting sex and violence to our youth).

YOu know, you are right...Nader would be a good vote. I voted for Ears the last time??????????

But I still think Gore is the lesser of the two evils.

Oh Pammy,

Please do not ruin my image of you!!!!

I think you are probably one of the "real Chiefs fans" here. Write in Elvis for President before you check the box for Gore.
He will ruin our country, Bill already has us on the road to Hell in a handbasket!!!

Don't do it Pam, Please!!!!!

Henry ... I'm not as informed as most others on politics, but your #71 post was just silly.

Bush will lower taxes for everyone, more moms can stay at home and keep their children focused on the good things in life.

It doesn't matter whether I vote for Nader or Bush. Either one will have the desired effect -- Gore will lose.

Fiscal conservative Ross Perot stole just enough votes from Bush Sr. to give Clinton the nod. Nader will have the same effect on Gore. More power to him.

Thanks for monitoring.

I will not count a second vote... nice try Luz. If anyone finds other double votes let me know. I will not count them.

BTW.... when all the debates are over and the final vote is cast after the election I will review all of the votes for a final, "official vote count"... and then we will elect our Candidate for Chiefs Planet Prez.

The main reason that I was voting for Gore was that he was for a woman's right to chose. But there is no way in good conscience that I can vote for Gore. He's a 2 faced, elitist liar. Bush and Chaney have several new programs and ideas that intrigue me. I wish they'd stay out of a woman's personal decision. But oh well. Change my vote to Bush.

PS - Pam, for a teacher you're not very well informed. For the record, the Democratic congress convinced Bush to raise taxes so that they would make other concessions. A president can't make new laws and raise taxes alone.

I cast my vote for George W. Bush. I think it is a no-brainer. I am one of the few people I know who embraces gridlock. I say give me a heartless Republican President and a bleeding heart Congress and they will meet in the middle, all the while keeping a distrustful eye on each other.

Here's how my day started. Somehow the radio that wakes me had wandered to a morning call-in program. The moderator was metaphorically parading the bodies of four dead sailors whose bodies are still warm, and announced to his listeners that Al Gore is more concerned with the melting ice caps than these victims, while playing his personal favorite foreign policy quotes from George Bush in last nights debate. As long as the faithful, lunatic Right insist upon lobbing excrement such as this from the bottom of Rush Limbaugh's garbage can, I will never be able to take seriously their party's candidates, no matter their qualifications. And that is a shame. <P>

Bush - How can anyone trust Gore. He tries to tell you what you want to hear even though it could be a flat-out lie. I guess he learned from the best, except he isn't near as smooth as Slick Willie.

Bush doesn't have all the answers and there are points I don't necessarily agree with, HOWEVER how can America go another 4 years with an administration that can lie to your face and smile while doing it. Gore talks about the school in Florida that had no room and a girl had to stand up in class. The room was full of $100K worth of equipment that hadn't been set up yet. Or the woman in Des Moines that picked up pop cans so she could go to the Convention. The Des Moines Register had a quote from her saying Gore's people paid her over a $1000 to come and show her face.

I'm not saying Bush hasn't mislead the public on something but Gore (the inventor of the internet - by the way Thanks Al) is a poor choice. If you are naive enough to believe Al invented the internet I have some ocean front propery in Missouri to sell you.

Go G.W.!!!

Hadnt seen this thread till now...where has this been hiding.

I thought I would ask Svuba, have you ever heard of Occidental Petroleum? Armand Hammer? Better take a look at your boys background. Gore, Sr. really DID sell his son to big oil, thought you might like to know.

I vote for Bush, quite frankly, because he'll have the least impact on my financial well being as well as my freedoms guaranteed currently by our Constitution.

Please do not point out the facts on Gore, don't you know it's just a conspiracy?

I've cast my Vote for Bush allready, but it bears repeating...

Who whould you rather have? Someone who makes up things to sound good, even if they are a blatant lie?

Or someone who maybe doesn't have all the answers, but is at least honest about it?


Oh yea, Still waiting to hear Gores reply why the % of uninsured children is rising in the US, yet IS falling in TX. Kinda made himself look bad, but then again, he does that well.
