Politics; poli (poly ie many)...tics (blood sucking parasites)
Hard to decide who is the lesser evil.
It means Rush Limbaugh and his brainless followers will have fun.
Having a voice, being a citizen, democracy in action
Voting for the future rights of women, young & old
Politics means saying and doing anything to get elected. It means saying "electing McCain is four more years of Bush." It means saying "Obama is more left than the independent Democratic socialist Senator from Vermont."
It means the real issues of our country are not debated – just marketing images, rhetoric and personal attacks – it means business as usual.
To make America a better place for my children.
mc says no to abortion unborn has right to life how about the born who are suffering in ky wv va az pa wy etc etc my friends
Finally, we chose two candidates for honesty, integrity, and change.
Sadness for a beloved nation ruined. Republican voting for Obama.
Exercising my constitutional right (and duty) to vote - for what I believe in my heart and head is best for my beloved country - NOT my party. That means voting for the most genuine and experienced candidate - not the blackest, whitest, oldest, or youngest. For me, a lifelong Democrat, who started voting in 1960, that means voting for John McCain in November.
Say or do anything to win.
It means doing what is right for ALL citizens, not just a FEW. It means not hanging our fellow Americans out to dry as the "cost of doing business." It means not killing others' children, so we can continue to ride around (alone) in SUVs. It means protecting life over profit.
Why Vote/What Politics Means
"Voting/Politics – taking responsibility who we are as a nation"
One word: fickle
More debt, less for common folk, and rich tax breaks!
A reaffirmation that the American Dream is alive, doing well, and will continue to prosper.
American politics can get in the way of natural democracy
At least for this year – which makes it so exiciting is an end to Bush = McCain and and inflexible and stubborn philosphy in deal with the other nations. Just as he did as governer and the two other corporations Bush managed – he has yet again managed to lead the largest and greatest enterprise straight into the ground on all accounts!
Politics this year means my vote will count and mean more than ever!!
Because America deserves better, I volunteer and vote for Change.
Reconstitute the Constitution?
Give peace a chance?
Yes we can!
Having a President that believes he's truly accountable to Americans.
Politics is all about who has money and wants power.
Involvemtny in politics to me is a social responsibility. A necessity in fact.
Voting/Politics – taking responsibility for who we are as nation
Self interest before public interest! That's 5.
