How do you feel about your voting decision?

How do you feel about your 2008 voting decisions?
How do you feel about your 2008 voting decisions?

If you cast a ballot last year, are you happy with your choice - or are you having second thoughts? If you didn't go to the polls, do you regret the decision - or would you make the same call today?

Weigh in here, and let us know why in the comments.

Voting has closed. Eighty-three percent of you said yes you were happy with your voting decisions. Seventeen percent of you said no said you were not happy with your decisions.

    Personally I voted for the Libertarian candidate, I don't remember his name, but that was actually the point. The fact is that the entire system is totally corrupt and works very hard to do two things, exclude other voices from the debate, and alienate as many voters as possible. There hasn't been more than sixty odd percent of electoral turn out for sixty years or so, that's not apathy, it is the realization that your vote is meaningless. If you don't believe me just look at what happened in 2000. The other part of the equation is money. It cost the dems and donors over a trillion dollars to squeak out a six percent victory, and thats with thirty three percent of voters abstaining. The funny thing is that if you look at it the right way, two thirds of the voters either didn't support Obama, or actually voted against him. That being said it is obvious to anyone who isn't blind or stupid that the majority does not support his agenda, or rather didn't support the agenda he got elected with, and then promptly switched as soon as he was sworn in. The only people who openly support this guy are either getting paid, in one way or another, by him, or would have to admit to everyone including themselves that they got took, and nobody wants to look like an idiot. The debt that this administration has incurred in one hundred days would make a saudi king blush, and we will never be out from under it. On the other hand Obama will get paid forever because he is an almost black guy who barely got elected by a tiny fraction of the most fed up and least interested voters in the most screwed up and unfair "democracy" on the planet, and we deserve every terrible policy decision that he crams down our throats with his brand of "bipartisanship" and "change we can believe in". I'm just glad that there is a new treasury secretary who isn't at all like Paulson, or Rubin. Oh thats right, the new treasury guy is their love child! A true Hegelian Marxist with a massive capitalist bent. So to answer the question, yes I'm perfectly satisfied with my choice for president, and I would never change my vote, I wonder how many Obamabots can truly say the same thing, not to mention what they will have to say in twenty years. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe a lot of those people actually enjoy being lied to and loosing whats left of their civil rights, not to mention their retirement and social security, maybe it makes them feel like martyrs to the cause, personally I just think they are morons who keep playing the game as they are told, and defiling the memory of every person who has tried to make this nation live up to it's promise of freedom and representative democracy.

    You're a jerk and who are you to tell any of us that voted for Obama and are happy with our decision that we don't deserve to be a citizen of this country!

    You obviously voted for Bush and McCain and are just a sore loser.

    Considering that the Republicans are continuing to show themselves as the new coming of the Third Reich, I am so glad that I switched parties and became a Democrat in 2000.
