ABB is a vote for survival but not a vote for change
Advertisements [?]
A vote for Kerry or Edwards may be a vote for survival but ABBer's lose me when they say " Let's get any Dem in and THEN work on change".

There is an axiom in negotiation that goes like this " The value of services is greatly diminished after the service has been rendered."

In other words, if one of these Dems get in come November there will be no incentive for them to change the status quo. We will be rubber stamping a spineless way of doing politics. Real change would have to be negotiated BEFOREHAND. Or they would have to lose and thereby come to realize that their way of doing business doesn't sell with us.

A vote for Kerry or Edwards will most likely save our country but it will NOT facillitate real change. So I'll likely vote ABB in November but please don't tell me it's anything more than that.
