    If you're going to vote for the lesser of two evils ...then the question is which is more important to you? The economy or foreign policy? Both would do less harm when compared to the other depending on the particular area -- or, rather, I should say both would do more harm when compared to the other depending on the particular area. We're all worse off in the long run so it doesn't matter who would do less or more harm as President.

    I refuse to vote in this poll until the option "This is a stupid question and I will be pushing 3rd party efforts with every ounce of energy I have until Nov 5" is available. Then I'll choose that one.

    Cutting taxes is almost irrelevant when you don't cut spending.
    And I'm not just talking about a few porkbarrel projects, mccain.

    I don't care if you refuse to vote or not.

    Right now we're TIED at 50% to 50%.

    Seems the people of this board are evenly split about who's worse!!!

    What a diverse group of people we have here.

  18. #16
    Does it really matter who's worse? They are both scumbags who don't deserve to be president.

    I voted for Obama because:

    He's less experienced and probably weaker.

    Republicans will probably take the Congress so there will be gridlock.

    McCain losing means that everything which Obama does (which will be the same things Bush has done) will likely be generally opposed by Republicans thus allowing our views to grow withing the party.

    Obama is, I think, instinctively less hawkish.

    The disasters which do result from his liberal idiocy will likely make conservative and libertarian ideas more desirable among the public.

    I could probably come up with other reasons...


    Caveats:

    The great unknown which is Barack Obama.

    Democrats could increase their power in Congress.

    If we were strong enough of a force in the Party, we could possibly force the Republicans in Congress and maybe even a McCain administration rightward.

    Obama tax/spend/borrow/bail-out policies could actually put us in a depression.

    In actual policy, though, McCain will be better because Obama will be McCain's equal as an environmentalist, warmonger, police-statist but will tax and spend more making us worse off in the short-run.

    So in summary, McCain is worse in the long run, Obama in the short.

    Whew!

    !
    I don't agree. They are still equally bad in this aspect. McCain will kill us with inflation. Obama will kill us with unemployement. However, looking at the scope of the problem I'd see Obama as the lesser. The reason is that he is actually fairly intelligent. He's even admitted that his tax plans would have to wait until the economy recovers.

    Look they both suck and if you vote for either of these two I hope you get what you deserve, but on a rational level I have to believe Obama would be better for two reasons primarily.

    A.) he's just flat out smarter than McLame.

    B.)It's our best option to have a proper candidate run for office in 2012.

    McCain will give us more debt, while Obama will put in place more permanent socialist institutions. While McCain has the greater possibility of ending this nation as we know it in the next 4 years, Obama has the potential to create so many government interventions that the concept of "limited government" seems laughable.

    Can't vote here - don't see a "it does not matter at all" choice between those two.

    Anyhow, Obama wins in '08 and rides us right into the eye of the storm.

    Correct answer: Ron Paul would do the least amount of harm.

  25. #22
    Barack Obama

    However, both are evil. I just happen to know that I'll get more out of an Obama presidency

    Both will do a bad job, but McCain and Palin both seem to be big fans of the Bush Doctrine of Preemptive War (even if Palin doesn't know what the Bush Doctrine is)- and pointless wars are about the most dangerous thing we can do.

    Obama would do more damage promoting hyper-liberal garbage at home....it would also give dems a president and congress to promote bigger government and liberal policies....

    Much better that McCain is a lame duck with a dem congress.

    Obama would do far far more damage in my eyes.

    ?

    I don't think we're tied at 50/50 on this forum. I think (my opinion) that most of us believe that the Republicans and Democrats are both working together to bring us down. "Two sides of the same coin" as it's been said many times before.

    I can say this with authority because of the many post above me which back this up.

    "Watch what those Republicrats do over there while we tear down your country over here."

    We're extremely diverse in almost every area, but we also have common binding points that unite us. I think that this is one of them.

    I am so $#@!en sick of the $#@!s who continue the lesser of two evils / whose least evil BULLLLLLL$#@!.

    Bugger off the lot of you.

    Edit: I voted McCain in an effort to prove a point / level the vote.

    There is no difference.
