Three months ago, I would never have considered casting a primary vote for Dennis Kucinich.
Now, since word of everything he's done and everything he stands for has gotten out more, I'd love to have the guy as President. My vote doesn't count for squat, proportionally (Florida primary), but I'll vote for him anyway.

I wish he'd back down on gun-control, but other than that, he's a great candidate. Seems kind of like this period's John Lennon.

1. I'm no fan of the primary line-up as it is, but vote for your choice! Keep it viable.

5. I'm in the same boat
I think we are getting a raw deal this year and MSM has turned the process into a joke. Not that I watch it anymore. I have better things to do with my time than watch the pundits masturbate all day.

I'm not crazy about Clinton, Obama or Edwards. I really can't figure out why Biden is even running except to make those three look like liberals.

2. Most people who live in urban areas are not fond of guns
Some idiot fires one off and the bullet is likely to go through your window. It happens a lot here in Boston.

As far as guns his beef is primarily with handguns. Personally I'm ambivallent on the issue.

15. Because he's not the President!
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 07:46 AM by riqster
He's a fake, so he can ignore the rules.

To the OP- Welcome to Kooch Country! If enough of us vote for him, it'll help to create change.

17. That was Old America. You must be confused.
Aside from some pathetic window-dressing that fools no one with half a brain, American Democracy is formelss and functionless. Only a few shards remain, mostly at the state and local level.

Bushler does whatever he wants whenever he wants, and whether he does it like Mussolini in 1939, r like Mussolini in 1923, with a laughably dysfunctional legislature that people kept scratching their heads and saying "Why don't they do something? How is it they could be so dysfunctional?", THE RESULT IS THE SAME.

But go ahead, keep your eyes on the window dressing, it will take your mind off the fact that there is no window there.

10. I believe that many people that get to know his life and work

11. By the time the primaries get to Texas, it'll be a
foregone conclusion who's going to get the nom., just like 4 years ago and 4 years before that.

BUT, I'm probably going to vote for Kucinich unless Edwards looks like he still has a fighting chance if for some reason bizarre the nom. isn't already sewn up.

12. Sadly, the mainline media will place limitations on DK's ideas and liberal message...
From reaching more people. Why? Because he has a message that resonates well with many, and the system isn't about to endorse an individual of that caliber.

13. But where does he stand on important issues
such as -- how much does he pay for his haircuts?

:sarcasm:

Otherwise, I'm with Kooch all the way!!!

14. The gun control thing is the wrong policy at the wrong time
Like telling people in 1933 Germany to get rid of their guns...NOT a wise idea for anyone with a gram of foresight.

To see Dennis asking us to disarm at the time of America's Greatest Internal threat to Liberty EVER, is madness.

I am disappointed, and it is a major bone of contention, but I am still strongly considering voting for him.

...so I am not worried about his position on that issue.
