If you are such a jinx, why don't you start voting for John Howard so that he loses?

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Thanks for all of the international members who participated in this. I was hoping people would.

Haha, I've looked at the ballot before and thought the same. But I just cannot bring myself to do it. I did vote for Jackie Kelly once, last election, actually, but that was because she was not as evil as the Labor candidate.

Re: Who have you voted for?

2004 - Bush

2006 Ohio Gubernatoral Primary - Ken Blackwell instead of Jim Petro.

Both good guys, but Petro had issues trying to distance himself from his socially liberal voting record.

'96 - Dole
'00 - McCain [wrote him in because I hated my other choices]
'04 - Kerry

Wow. You can totally see my political evolution from one side to the other in that short amount of time. Moving to Brooklyn will do that to you I guess. [of course, I now live in a blue island in a red state. go figure.]

1988 - Dukakis
1992 - Clinton
1996 - Clinton
2000 - Gore
2004 - Kerry

I consider myself a centrist and independent of either party, but obviously my voting record tells a different story.

It's not like the Republicans have given me good variety, though. Four out of the five elections I've voted in, their candidate has been a Bush!

1988 - Liberal, I hated Mulroney but he still won

1993 - Liberal, the election where Canada wiped out the Progressive Conservative Party, went from 151 seats to 2

1997 - Liberal, There was no legitmate national party as an alternative at the time.

2000 - Liberal, Stockwell Day is a moron, would have made Bush appear as a Rhodes Scholar

2004 - Liberal, The new Conservative Party of Canada is just the Canadian Alliance which was the Reform Party in sheep's clothing. I couldn't vote for Harper either.

2006 - Marxist / Leninist for fun
I live in a Reform party riding so my vote doesn't count anymore. The Conservative candidate usually wins this riding by 15000 votes. I still despise Harper.

1992-2 months shy of legally voting
supported Pat Buchanan early on in primaries (I was an ultra-conservative at 17)
supported Bush in the election

1996-ambivolent about it and politics in general
half-assed supported Clinton
did not vote

2000-supported McCain in the primaries (he was the best of the big 4) voted Libertarian, I think Browne was the candidate (more of a protest vote)

2004-supported ABB, but I did like John Kerry, although I thought he had the personality of a grapefruit, at least he was pretty intelligent. Kerry, in another protest vote

I hate the two party system.
Although I am leaning Biden in 2008.
He'll never win the nom.
So, probably gonna hope some maverick runs.
When you live in such a red state, anything outside of a Republican vote in the Presidential election is a waste of time, but sometimes it's good just to excercise the right to vote even if it's useless.
