Why did you vote for who you voted for?

If you voted for Bush, tell everyone why. If you voted for Kerry tell everyone why.

Sadly, the same reason I voted as I have in the last several elections.

I felt it was the lesser of two (or in 1996, three) evils. Damn it, I'm getting tired of that.
Give me a decent choice, somebody! Biden or Clark would not only have my vote in a heartbeat, I'd volunteer and work my ass off for them.

I voted third party. Bush lost me at Iraq and that is just the start. Kerry could not convince me to cast my vote for him.

I voted for Michael Badnarik because I wasn't willing to vote for either Bush or Kerry, and Badnarik was teh candidate that most closely held my views.

Unfortunately, the system only allows for the candidates who are in the industry's pocket to participate.

I voted for Kerry simply because I felt he was the most likely to defeat Bush. So it was really a vote against GW.

Otherwise, I would have voted for Badnarik. But I knew it would be a throw away vote and I felt the most important thing was to try to remove Bush from that office. I can not express my disappointment in the voters in this country that reelected what IMO is the worst president of my lifetime (born in 1960 so yes, I am putting him as worse than Nixon).

I voted for Bush because as far as I'm concerned, he's on the right track in the GWoT (more or less) and because he was the guy I trusted not to give up in Iraq.

I have only started voting in presidential elections recently for just this reason. Talking heads wonder why there is such apathy at the polls. This is a large portion of the issue in my opinion. Even this last time around, my vote didn't go to who I wanted but to against who I didn't want. That is sad.

Same. Will continue voting for a Libertarian candidate, if only for the hope that they will one day reach the 6% mark required to garner federal funding.

The sad thing is that Badnarik lost so many votes to both parties because they both scared so many people to vote for or against them. I also know many fellow Libertarians who felt that Badnarik was too extreme or borderline at best.

Hydrae's reasons are pretty much mine too. But instead of Bednarik, I would've voted for Camejo (Green), as I did (for Nader as a Green) in 2000.

I would have voted for Nader had I followed my heart, but I chose Kerry because I was fairly compatible with his own beliefs and policies and I did and still hate almost all of the Republican platform, especially when espoused by a sonofabitch as thoroughly stupid as Bush.

I voted Third Party due to Iraq and lack of fiscal restraint by Bush

Kerry....I could not bring myself to vote for him as a Commander in Chief of our Armed forces due to his meeting with Madam Bing in Paris ( based on what I read) during 'Nam...I think he's guilty of treason and is shameless opportunist.

Both parties sukk today.

The least I'd vote for would be divided gov't (Dem prez so long as they are not a War Hawk and a GOP congress) so they can't get anything done.
Then our property, money and freedom would be safer.

I did not know that Nader was on the ballot in Kansa. I do not remember him being a choice in Missouri.

I voted for Bush. He was the lesser of two bad choices. Gore was a pussy. Kerry even more of a pussy. They make Bill Clinton look pretty damn good. Nominate Clark, or Lieberman, Warner, Obama, or Byah in 2008....then I'll think about voting against the complacency and mismanagement of the GOP. Nominate Hillary, or some other loon, and I may sit this one out.
