Personally, I'm still undecided. I have a STRONG antipathy towards President Bush, but I just can't shake the abortion problem. I don't hold out much hope that Bush can get Roe vs Wade overturned, unless he has a strong majority in Congress. Only then could he overcome a Democratic filibuster of any potential Supreme Court nominee that might go the other way on the abortion issue. And, of course, there is the related stem-cell issue - another strike against a Kerry vote. My decision is further hampered by the fact that I missed the Illinois registration deadline. Being a strong Democrat state, I was going to cast a third party vote in an effort to break the stranglehold of the 2 party system, which I think works against a fair and open political process. But now, I'm forced to vote on an Arizona early ballot and Arizona is a freakin' swing state, which means my vote may actually count! Darn the luck.

I will vote for intelligence and thinking over the word-garbling puppet now in office. For the first time in my life, I feel afraid of what another term of a president can do to our country. Kerry isn't perfect, but he's our only hope of beating Bush, and I believe getting Bush out of office is our strongest hope. In God we trust, yes, but God helps those that help themselves.

I totally agree - whereas I am not undecided - I am not either a Republican or Democrat in reality. I like to would like to a three or even four party system come into place in the US ... and I believe that disgruntle Democrats on the abortion issue and disgruntled Republicans on the lack of anything else "pro-life" in the party except abortion will very soon possibly unite to form a formdiable force in American politics.
