More Political Ramblings//Howie BApparently mentioning third party candidates on this blog is an easy way to get a lot of e-mails. I mentioned yesterday that I was undecided about who I was going to vote for. I'm between Kerry, Nader and Cobb at the moment. First of all, I'm sorry if this upset anyone. We've probably all heard the "a vote for Nader is a vote for Bush" line. But I don't think this is true. No candidate has a right to my vote until I give it to them, although I can understand why third parties aren't going to come in too strong this time around. The thing is, there are a lot of changes that I would like to see that neither of the major parties will endorse. But maybe right now is, unfortunately, not the time. Although I think this election does run much deeper than Kerry and Bush, I will probably end up voting for Kerry anyway, even though I suspect we'll do well in New Jersey as it is. I don't know that John Kerry is the best man to run the country (hopefully I'm wrong about that), but Bush is too far outside of my political views. Also, I don't want to think what the world will be like after another four years of Bush. The important thing, I think, is what happens after the election, regardless of who wins. The involvement of the people shouldn't just be once every four years; a lot happens in between that time. Ok, that's my two cents on everything. I'll try to stop the political ramblings for a little while.
