    Here’s a recent paper that might help you decide what to do tomorrow: “What is the probability your vote will make a difference?”

    The states where a single vote is
    most likely to matter are New Mexico, Virginia, New Hampshire, and Colorado, where your vote has an approximate 1 in 10 million chance of determining the national election outcome. On average, a voter in America has a 1 in 60 million chance of being decisive in the presidential election.

    I live in Texas, so it does not matter who I voted for the machines have already been programmed to pick the winner.

    McCain will take Texas, I just hope that by some miracle Cornyn (our dispicable senator) loses.

    Barr gets my vote simply because I would like the LP to have a decent showing. I don’t believe for a nanosecond that Bob Barr is a libertarian.

    My thoughts echo Kristen – I live in New York, so it’s always been easy to vote for the Libertarian candidate. The fact that they chose a terrible candidate this year is just bad luck, but I still plan to vote for Barr. Bad as he is from a libertarian perspective, he’s still better than the main 2 choices we face.
    And I, too, want the LP to have a decent showing.

    Agreed.

    I voted early, primarily to vote against Sheila Jackson Lee (Congresswoman, 18th District of Texas). For President I wrote in John Galt. Can’t bring myself to vote for Bob Barr after he supported and helped pass the Lautenberg Amendment. Anyone who thinks it’s ok to permanently revoke a citizen’s Constitutionally-protected fundamental human rights over the accusation of a misdemeanor is not qualified for the job.

    It is heartening to see “Not Voting” edging out at least one of the primary vultures.

    Where´s McKinney? She is the only candidate that punched a cop.

    Ron Paul write in

    Nice try, but I don’t think he’ll take the job. :(

    Is there a reason you’re deliberately lumping Boston Tea in with the WWP?

    Is it racism?

    Is it funny that people voted “not voting”?

    In keeping with my feeling that the machine is broken and running without proper feedback, I wrote in “None of the Above” in all cases.

    Up until today I was planning on not voting for any of the presidential candidates. I don’t like or trust Barr at all (and not a big fan of the wacky LP), but I’m wondering if I can help the libertarian cause at all by adding a tiny bit to his percentage total.

    So Barr is going to win, huh?

    “Is it funny that people voted “not voting”?”

    I guess that there are several people over there that CAN´T vote in the US.

    I will not be voting. I have put up little article as to why not voting is a better and valid option.
