you can't vote for ron paul. he isn't mainstream. we haven't been programed to vote that way. it's 1984, and in this day and age, we are lucky to get two choices.

If you do some research you will find that African Americans vote overwhelming for Democrats in primaries and Generals

I registered Republican last August in case NC was a closed primary. The people at my elections office wasn't sure. I most certainly did vote and so did a few of my neighbors and friends. They really don't like McCain.

I am still an independent. I am curious to see what my libertarian friends do. I want a third party to be invited to the debate. jesus, this two party crap is so old and tired.

Whoop whoop de dooooo! Yayyyyy O-BA-MA! O-BA-MA! O-BA-MA! O-BA-MA! O-BA-MA!

Hillary went after blue collar; its a new age. White-collar college graduates are the ones she should have been smart enough to pursue. But even then her polarizing attitudes would never have won them over. That population is too smart to have bought into her chameleon-like supposed "values.

no, it's brainwashing because your chant comes from a youtube celebrity video.

Not a Obama or Hillary supporter here. However, do you Obama cultists think you have a chance of winning NC against McCain?
