Blutzki,
I voted Nader in 2000 and have regretted it ever since (along with many others). A McCain presidency could be even worse because there is a good chance that Palin would be the POTUS.

paul would have made a really good showing for a 3rd party during this cycle; however, he's not mainstream enough to defeat the republican machine and hasn't "done his time yet" sorta like mccain had to do between 2000 and now.

Paul only saw it because one of his advisors is Peter Schiff.
