I'm just putting this up as a reserved thread for discussing possible candidates and issues related to the upcoming election. I'm not going to add much at the moment, except for perhaps a few bits of news here and there. Feel free to support your candidates, discuss issues, anything related to the election is fine. Currently I'm very much neutral, and have no idea who I'll be voting for. I'd like to mention though, Dennis Kucinich has recently announced that he's running for presidency again. I supported him back in 03-04, and feel he's one of the few politicians that can be trusted to follow through on his campaign goals. Some consider his viewpoints as radical, but the man has his priorities well placed in terms of social improvement (including issues like health care and education) while advocating better relations and more cooperation with the U.N. in regards to international affairs. I doubt I would agree with everything his campaign stands for, but then again there is probably no political campaign in existence that perfectly fits my ideals. Kucinich's perspective is however a much closer fit to my political ideologies than other well-known candidates. He's definitely on my list of candidates to keep an eye on, though (sadly) I very much doubt he will get much of a following. His ideas are great, but he's probably not the most charismatic public speaker, and from what I've seen - his stance is not going to be moderate enough to capture majority vote. I'm still happy to see him running though, I think his group sends important messages that need to be heard.
