I'm sorry if this has already been posted, but I just wanted to say some things.
All along I thought I was going to vote for McCain. I disagree with most of Obama's opinions, so I figured I'd vote McCain.
Well, ever since it was announced that Sarah Palin would be his running mate I've had to rethink some things. I like her at first, but the more I read about her, the less I like her. We more or less have the same values, but hers are more 'extreme' than mine. I just feel like she turns off a lot of people.
So, I did a little research, and I decided that Bob Barr (Libertarian candidate) is a better choice for me.
However, the whole 2-party system angers me. The third party candidates (especially in this year's election) have no chance of being elected.
And since I am registered to vote in Texas, where a quarter of the people there think Obama is Muslim, my vote for Barr is useless. I am 99% sure McCain will win Texas.
For me, the 2-party system turns me off the idea of voting. Why should I stand in line for hours or spend my time filling out an absentee ballot when I know my candidate has no chance of winning?
I know most people here on Fanpop are Democrats and they might disagree with what I'm saying and that's fine. That's often why I don't voice my opinions too much here. I feel like I am up against people who have completely opposite views as I do... However, that's a whole other topic.
So, anyway, what are your views on the two-party system?
