IMO Obama will take an early lead until the Republicans get off work....
"Oh, I Like smoking, I do. I smoke for my health, my mental health. Tobacco gives you little pauses, a rest from life. I don’t suppose anyone smoking a pipe would have road rage, would they?"
“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”
I didn't say that was the basis of my decision. It was a question.
In that case - I am interested in voting for the candidate that I think is most likely to implement policy that aligns with my own values. Showing off how patriotic I am is pretty low on that scale.
Things like personal liberty, fiscal responsibility, education, furthering human knowledge, promoting peace are things that are important to me.
Obama ranks higher than Romney for me overall on the things I find important (obviously not so good on the fiscal responsibility thing) - but no where near high enough that I can say I'd be excited about voting for him. Hence my yapping about voting for 3rd party candidates like Gary Johnson.
