A Simple Question: Why?

No one has every asked me why I'm voting for my guy tomorrow, and judging from the answers I get, not many other people are asked why either. I like to ask people why they're voting for their choice. The answers are usually uninspired, echo chamber garbage.

So I gave it some thought. Not that you asked, but here is why…

One guy gets my vote:

  • Because he seems to be really smart
  • Because the people I read about as "advisors" (I'm still not sure what that means) seem smart and have more good ideas than bad
  • Because he made a safe choice for VP
  • Because very little his critics have to say resonated with me
  • Because what his supporters say frequently sounds pretty good
  • Because most of what he says seems like good ideas
  • Most of what I saw from his campaign was pretty good
  • Because most of what he says he will do doesn't seem all that bad
  • Because his Party is not terrible all the time

One guy does not get my vote:

  • Because he doesn't seem to be as smart as the other guy
  • Because the people I read about as "advisors" (I'm still not sure what that means) seem like ideologues with few good ideas
  • Because he made a terrible choice for VP
  • Because most of what his critics have to say resonated with me
  • Because what his supporters say frequently sounds pretty bad
  • Because most of his ideas don't sound as good
  • Most of what I saw from his campaign was pretty bad
  • Because most of what he says he will do doesn't seem all that good
  • Because his Party is very frequently terrible

Wow

I didn't think you were voting for McCain. Good for you :)

No matter who wins the best part about this election is the record particpation by Americans. It is nice to see so many people who care deeply about the country. Even if Ralph Nader wins this one, we will have benefitted from the engagement of the American people. I hope it keeps up.
