84. If I recall correctly there were two serious candidates in an election in 2008
Edited on Thu Mar-31-11 08:21 AM by Rowdyboy
That is a fact. The better of the two in my opinion was Barack Obama therefore I voted for him. Those are statements of fact. In a strong 2 party system there are no serious alternatives, therefore no "3rd choice" was available which is necessary for a "false dichotomy"..

The fact that you don't like the definition, don't like my opinion and don't like Barack Obama all combined still do not make my post a "false dichotomy". Raising strawmen does nothing to enhance your position-at least not to someone who recognizes them.

But thank you for playing too!
