Title: Who Should I Vote For?

Who should I vote for and why.
I don't think Paul is going to win the primaries. I never changed parties so looks like I'm voting Democratic this year.
I'd like your opinions.
(I left Hillary out because we don't need another Clinton in office.)

Either way it's the same shit...

I understand, but I was wondering who was a better candidate out of the two.

The lesser of 2 evils is still evil.

Patriot Act writing/supporting

...give me a break. Ron Paul =#1 in Jefferson County, double digits in Iowa, beat RG, received better than 5th in MANY counties and will do much better in NH. I think you are jumping the gun. Even if you can't register Republican, you can still hold your vote, write-in, pass out DVDs and get people to commit to just the 10 minute intro. Remember, Ron Paul will not be doing the 9/11 investigation but he believes we need one.

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." ~ Calvin Coolidge

I was optimistic at first... but these are the reasons why I don't think Ron Paul will win.
- He is a Republican. Democratic voters have outnumbered the Republicans in the primaries 2 to 1 so far. The pendulum is swinging to the Left for 2008. It's the thinking that if we "vote Left" then thing will really change. I don't agree with this, of course, but that's how the national mentality seems to be.
- He has the youth/college/libertarian-minded vote for sure, but I'm not so sure that he will win over the rest of the vote from other subcultures.
- He has a strong battle with powerhouses like McCain, who may take votes from him
- A lot of independents are leaning towards Obama

My prediction is that Obama will win the primaries..and perhaps McCain or Huckabee (who the heck is he anyway?) on the Republican side.
I could be wrong of course, and I do hope Ron Paul momentum picks up from where it left off! I just don't see it happening the more I watch C-span and see the types of people that go out to the caucuses. It's disheartening that Ron Paul is not getting the votes he should, but I attribute that to group think mentality. People are voting for popularity right now.. The more a candidate gets popular, the more they want them to be in office. They are not giving Paul or Kucinich a chance.
