    We now have the John Kerry for this presidential election cycle. Flip-flop.

    Sorry Rudy, you aren't getting my vote.

    In my view Rudy is no different than Hitelry. He says whatever he thinks his voting base wants to hear.

    ....with a lot of references to 9/11. Although if you look at his supposed "great leadership" prior to that attack you would find out that he arrogantly dismissed all the excellent advice he was being given. In the end he took credit for the work that was done on the ground by better people than himself. Work that succeeded in spite of his leadership, not because of it.

    I despise Guiliani. If the election evolves into a choice between he and Hillary, I honestly have no idea what I will do. Probably cast a protest vote.

    My father works for a NY based company and subsequently talks with a lot of folks who live up there. One was a retired NYCFD and was telling my Dad back in 1996 that the FD had no way to get water above the 75th floor if there was a major fire and no plan how to fight one.

    If you vote for Hillary, you will accelerate your loss of 2nd amendment rights if they are important to you. If you think Bill Clinton will not be involved in policy, then I have a bridge AND some swampland to sell you. Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it. There was only one strong supporter of 2nd amendment rights and private ownership of weapons among all the candidates on the Democratic side. On the other, you have Thompson, McCain and to a lesser extent, Rudy Guiliani. As mayor, his responsibilities in a city were more difficult that much of the rest of the country. I do not agree with his policies on gun control, but I assure you, he is more conservative on that than almost any of the Democrats. My sense is you will end up with two polarized candidates and will have the choice of a democratic republic in which the individual is important, or a socialist society, take your pick.

    This may be the first year I truly vote my conscience regardless of what the outcome may be. That's the beauty of being American.

    Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil.

    I've been throwing my votes away like that for years.
