If I could, I would vote for Bush b/c Kerry has more waffles than a house of pan cakes.

May a non-american vote?

If so, Ralph Nader gets a vote from Sweden!

People/parties I vote for usually end up on the losing side. So I'd vote for George.W.Bush if I were an American

Nader voters, please reconsider and vote for Kerry. i know there is not much difference, but there is SOME difference. and if bush wins it takes us further away from what we want, while a Kerry win will not take us quite as far away.

i was a Green and voted for Nader last time, but i changed my party affiliation to vote in the democratic primaries if necessary and i will vote for Kerry in the general this year. i live in NY so it doesn't make a huge difference, but even here with Pataki as gov and with bush exploiting 9-11 there may be some remote chance that bush will become competitive. every vote counts everywhere (unlike last time, we hope ).

i respect Ralph Nader greatly, but the simple fact is the country and the world cannot handle another four years of corporate/cheney rule with bush as their puppet. bush rolling back the EPA clean air and clean water acts, allowing more mercury and particulate to be dumped into the envrionment, and his failing to cooperate with the world on Kyoto is enough to show how absolutely dangerous he is. we already can't eat the freshwater fish in 19 states because of the mercury contamination, and under bush that has been and will continue to be greatly worsened. whether we eat fish or not isn't the point -- that's just a marker of how bad it is. tens or even hundreds of thousands of children will develop childhood onset asthma every year as a result of the bush policies, and as someone with asthma let me assure you, that is more damaging to their lives than any terrorist is likely to be.

by contrast, Kerry has the BEST environmental record in the Senate -- a fact that is not touted in the corporate media b/c the reason bush is there is to benefit big oil and the corporate polluters, and that's all he is there for. it is sad that so many people have to be brainwashed 1984-style (1984: "War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery." bush: "When we talk about war, we're really talking about peace" -- actual quote) into thinking bush is somehow put there for them, but the sadder fact is the fact of the actual damage being done by his pro-corporate, anti-citizen policies.

Nader voters: please reconsider! Kerry 04!

Got to love the environment. I just feel we aren't doing enough. We ought to do something similar to Clinton with the Grand Staircase-Escalante in places that we need it like New York. I'm sure those Utah kids are going to live to be 120 with 1.7 million acres of wilderness right in the back yard. Too bad they lost all that tax revenue so they can't get an education but hey they will live twice as long as those poor New York kids.
With Kerry as president 56% of kids won't get the flu next year, there won't be a single case of asthma, however there may be more diabetics because of all the sugary goodness.
