There aren't too many days left until our country will be voting on another president, and I just wanted to encourage everyone to take part in the democracy they hold so dearly. We all love our country and the freedoms it gives us. We all complain when the government does something we don't agree with but have the time the majority of our citizens won't make their voice heard....Go out and vote!

While I know you are never suppose to talk politics with anyone because arguments can happen, I have recently read that the Sportsman Vote is a big turnout and something that candidates fight for. I had two questions for y'all:

1. Who all on here will actually vote?

2. What candidate will you vote for?

I personally think Ron Paul would be the best candidate to vote in to the White House, but I will probably end up voting for McCain and Palin in order to help them beat Obama.

I do not wish to start and argument or to offend anyone, just simply wondering and looking for a mature DISCUSSION of the matter.

Have a good one!

I always vote. I will vote against Obama this go around. I do believe he'll win the election. I really don't think he'll be good for our country. There's more to life than a tax cut and I don't think he has much else to offer. As a rural gun owning hunter and buisness owner, he scares the fire out of me. McCain is ok but I don't think he has any new ideas...... I'm not fond of either one actually. Ron Paul is a little on the extreme side for me. Just my opinion.

i always vote and, for a lack of a better system or dealing with the way things work, always to the right. i like talking to people with differing opinions. I'm always looking for insight or a different point of view to either confirm or disprove my thoughts. my first and second choice didn't make it far enough so i'm going with McCain/ Palin and hope they knock some sense into ALL the boneheads in DC and reform the system to end the crap. i'm not going to hold my breath though.

I tend to run pretty conservative, that should answer your question. Just for conversation purposes I am concerned with the drift twords socialism it's a big mistake.

amen to that one HM, but drift my rear end! they are running head long into it. both sides hand in hand. thats why dc needs a wake up call to remind them that WE are America not the government. cut out the bull and get back to working for us, the ones that are paying the bills. there's to much playing both sides of the fence, being pc, and worrying about what France and the other countries think and almost no doing whats best, what we want, for the US. to much babying the people and trying to wipe everyones noses. the only thing that gov should be doing is making sure everyone has a chance to succeed not giving away incomes and perks to everyone and every company. i still think they should all be fired and tap people on the street ask if they can read and write in English and offer them the job in dc. oh don't get me started.

HM a big mistake? My friend we are in deep crap. I'm loosing faith. Not in America but in the new trend in thought process. It scares the heck out of me. I try to keep an open mind but this one I just don't get. Vote? You're darn right I'm going to vote. No way anyone is going to blame me for what is coming so it appears.:sad: Now I'm depressed. Let's talk about BUCKS!! Shot a 130's class 8 point Thursday.:lol:

I as well lean toward the conservative side. So that puts my vote with the McCain/Palin ticket. Im like ronn on this stuff. You dont wanna get me started on my "Im scared of Obama". Whats sad is McCain wasnt in my top choices either. Either side can be grim but I think less damage will be with McCain.

Ive always thought if every American went out and voted the republicans will win this year. We cant really trust the polls on most networks today. (dont need to get started on that either)

What I dont like are people that vote for certain party only because thats what they have always done. I wish we would just vote for the better candiadate and throw parties out the window.

I liked ronn's comment. Here is one of mine Ive used over the years.

I wish they would find some farmers that have been running a business for 90 years, made it through the really hard times, and know's how to make business work without all the bull crap. And money does not sway their thoughts.

Banks have been giving money to folks that didnt need it for several years now. What do they expect to happen when people are maxed out on their bills. Their still going to eat out and go on vacation. They will just quit making the house payment. And how many folks could work, but choose not to because they would rather sit at home and draw a check, food stamps and TNcare insurance. Because their to good to get a job at Kroger or a nursery somewhere. I dont agree with illegal immigration but we Americans could learn something from all these Mexicans coming to TN. They work like crazy. Save their money. Take care of their families and do the work that we Americans think we are to good to do because our hands get dirty and it makes our back hurt. The generation Im in and the one being raised today have no clue what real work is. (For the most part, I believe I got a grasp on what work is and so do some other young folks, there are just very few.)

Im done. I could rattle on this all day long.

Well Ronn knows very well how I feel about this guy but this site is "G" rated so I won't go there. They say he is popular with the younger generation and women----------I'm REALLY not going there. So I guess you see how much I dislike the man. McCain was not my first choice either but as far as I can see the only choice. Bottom line is everything so far stated is exactly how I feel. Hey I did good, I'm not usually POLITICALLY correct.:wallbash:

Just wanted to say thanks for keeping it professional. Even though I may not see eye to eye with folks, I do understand that this is America and they have their freedom of choice.

I think one of the perfect tickets would be a Jesse Ventura/Ted Nugent ticket...that would be a great day in our country!

Thanks for everyone's responses and I love that people actually could discuss it without anyone going off.

In response to an earlier post, Ron Paul is extreme in some of his beliefs but he is for disbanding of NAFTA. NAFTA completely destroyed this country by sending many if not all our blue collar factory jobs to other countries for cheaper labor. My home town was centered around a huge H.I.S. factory which left the town with a huge unemployment rate when it moved just months after the passing of it. This caused many people to move from the town.

Also, he is a believer of the Fair Tax which is something I think we should implement immediately. That would be a HUGE help to our current economy. If y'all haven't done much research on it, google it and read up.

Isolationism is another policy of his that I do believe in. We still need to trade with other countries, but I believe we need to stop trying to police the world and concentrate on making the best lives for our own citizens first.

If Obama wins the election, he wants to lower taxes yet start all these new health care programs and such. How can you make new programs when the government income is going down. Also, all of your rich people (that top 5-10%) are in positions of power....do you really think those people in Congress are going to pass a bill to take more of their own money? I believe Obama is just like John Kerry was...he will say whatever sounds good to get people to like him.

My final thing against Obama is that he has way to many possible terrorist ties. Most of the prominent people he has been connected to, commonly blame white people for the problems in America, denounce America, have done extremely radical things that have killed innocent people. I thought it was scary that Obama was tied to ACORN (they contributed $800,000 to him) and they have been a huge part in voter frauds across the country....scary ain't it.

I do not believe McCain to be all that great but I do have to say he (like George Bush in the last election) is the lesser of two evils. It's sad that we always seem to vote for the people who scare us less....when will we have good enough candidates to be voting for the actual better person.

About Obama and taxes how do we know what he will do? He has changed his format 6 times since he started running. He is a very dangerous man. I pray America wakes up before it is too late.:confused:

Ted Nugent has said he has/is considering running for a Congress position and Ventura has said that he had thought about running for the presidency this time around, but he wants to spend time with his family right now. He did say that it is possible that he may run in a future election.

After reading some of the responces here, I had to add this. Ted Nugent makes great music and has some good ideas on hunting, however, when I watch his tv show and he is shooting import animals, that act like farm livestock, on his ranches over a bucket of bait and calls that hunting, it makes me want to puke. In many states it would be illegal and many hunters would consider it unethical. I know this will create some lively responces but hey why not! Have at it and fire away.HM

I like the "Nudge", I like the fact that he is VERY Red white and Blue BUT
I, like you HM could teach him a thing or 2 about appropriate & proper hunting conduct.
