    Okay, I know you wanna know who I'm supporting. I'm a liberal, I'm supporting Kerry.
    But my point is, I can hardly get on the net anymore without ads poppin up, "Vote for me!"
    Not to mention all the junk mail. Everyone has a different view. Debating is heard everywhere I go at school, and even some of my friends are being torn apart over it.

    I don't about you, but I can't wait until it's over.

    No RoG, you are underestimating the importance of this election one twentyfourth part of the world population is going to decide what is going to happen to the world in years to come.

    I can imagine it has turned quite boring by now, if you are not that into politics.

    I to can't wait until the election is over, however I am a conservative, and if Kerry wins, I believe our problems would just be beginning.

    Hence the debate. Maybe 50% of the people will be left severely disappointed after the election. You can't blame people for their ongoing passion to be not with the "losers". That's a great American tradition, I guess. Luckily, there is only one day to go, then we will know what the losing party will be.

    I am not trying to be opinionated at the expense of common sense, I can just tell that many of John Kerry's plans are founded on little other than hot air. For example, the tax cut "repeal" for the top two tax brackets would barely cover his health care plan, if that. Where is he going to get the money to balance the budget? Well he would have to raise everyone's taxes, which he has repeatedly promised not to do. He proposed raising the minimum wage, which would make it more costly for many companies to operate in the United States, and hence increase outsourcing. If he limits outsourcing as well, prices will go up to compensate for the increased operation cost and our economy will get worse. John Kerry is trying to please everone, which cannot be done. Many of his claims involve ambiguous "plans" to make America "better". All the promises he makes he cannot possibly keep. Unfortunately, many Americans are nieve and will believe his empty words. This is what I ment when I said our situation will get worse if Kerry is elected.
