Election day
    #3309208 - 11/02/04 02:55 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I just went and voted.

As I was walking out of the polling station, a local newspaper
reporter asked me some questions.  So, tomorrow I will take a picture
of the paper where my remarks are in and I will post it.

I also got a call from some television network asking me a shitload
of questions about everything from my educational level, how I voted,
if I considered myself liberal or conservative, if I had any kids,
etc...etc...

When the phone lady asked me if I voted for Bush, Kerry, or Nader,
I said "I didn't vote for any of them.  I voted for the Libertarian
candidate".  She stopped and her tone of voice sounded as if she
thought I was crazy.  It was funny.

Then she asked me if I was conservative or liberal and I said
neither.  It sounded as if her head was going to explode.

:grin:

I roll my eyes whenever someone asks if I'm conservative or liberal. During the first Kerry-Bush debate, they handed out surveys, and one of the multiple-choice questions asked if I considered myself (a)very liberal, (b)somewhat liberal (c)moderate, (d)somewhat conservative, or (e)very conservative. I had to write in "(f)none of the above". I like it much more when people ask me such questions in person so I can see the confused look on their face, like their brain can't concieve of such an idea.

yup. The notion that all possible political possitions can be charted on a line is just absurd.

It's just one of those things that seems to be widely accepted, but that's just totally bizzarre when you acctually consider it closer.

Most people(or at least something approaching 50%) haven't even heard of the Libertarian Party.

It might if the Libertarians can make a big enough splash in the polls. That's probably why Badnarik is targeting swing states. If he swings the election, that'll mean publicity for the party.
