New Voters Project Presidential Youth Debate

This is some of the most revealing stuff I've read on the presidential candidates positions and philosophies. You have to read between the lines sometimes, but it's all there.

Nader makes a pretty good showing throughout most of it, though he comes off as a huge crank at other times. Bush is a crackpot through-and-through, and Kerry wusses out on almost every question. To give Nader credit, he's the only one who actually answered most of the questions as asked - the other two usually dodged.

Why are we left with such miserable choices? Buckminster Fuller, one of my heroes, refused to vote in elections, as he felt it was a pointless gesture. I truly believe John Kerry is the best choice we have in this election, but it is depressing that he is the best our nation has to offer. I want a man (or woman) I can respect for president. Why can't I vote for Barack Obama now?

I'm watching the last debate again on CSPAN now and it angers me. I can't believe some of the things coming out of Bush's mouth and how he comes off. Very Presidential, not.

Granted Kerry isn't the best choice, but he's a hell of a lot better. Besides W has the timber company to fall back on, so he won't be lacking employment.

That's 2 votes for Barack Obama.
