    Disclaimer: May be considered good news only if you are a Bush supporter.....

    Heard on the radio today that in some polls Bush and Kerry are neck and neck in Maryland. This is remarkable in a state that is 2 to 1 Democrats to Republicans.

    The problem is, that if it ends up being 51% Kerry and 49% Bush it's still Kerry getting Maryland's vote.....:cuss: The Dems still basically have a stranglehold on our electoral votes if that is the case.

    We need to all get out there and push Bush and Pipkin over the top.


    Just heard N.J. is 50/50 split....amazing,

    Almost makes me want to BEG libertarians and Constitutionalists to vote for Bush now that it might matter.


    When MD and NJ were surefire Democratic states I always supported people breaking stride and voting third party, but with the votes actually being counted in these states this year.....one has to think about who they can settle for.....Kerry or Bush.

    Glad to see there may be hope for the state of my birth. I'm tickled pink that I don't live there now. I like my collection and would hate to part with any of it.

    Now that the court has ruled that Nader should be on the ballot, that may help even more.

    Disclaimer? If you live in MD and aren't voting for Bush, then guns/freedom aren't your main goals. (I failed my sensitivity/PC training course when I had a real job.) I have voted for Libertarian candidates in the past, but this election is too close, especially here.

    I'd like to get out of here as well...but since the Navy demands my wife's presence and she's a little particular about us living in the same house, I'm stuck here for the time being.

    I would have considered voting for either Peroutka or Badnarik if the polls were running true to stereotype in MD.....but this year every vote truly counts and I will vote Bush.

    How many electoral votes does MD carry anyway?

    Maryland has 10, as it has since at least 1981, and it will remain so until at least 2010.

    Here's a great page for anybody wanting to check their state's electoral vote:

    Yup. Those immoral sons-of-goats have got to be run out of the state. We have no room for anyone who follows their conscience. They're a scourge on our great nation.

    Mikul,

    I, too, would gladly vote Libertarian if there was even the slightest chance of Badnarik winning the Presidency, but let's be realistic. He doesn't have a prayer. The vast majority of the American public, to say nothing of the media, is (thanks to Lyndon LaRouche) convinced that the Libertarians are nothing but a fringe group of radical and misguided malcontents. They've never bothered to research thier platform, nor investigate thier beliefs. Nor are they likely to, either. Until the Libertarians can win more local elections, and thus increase thier chances of winning a seat in Congress, no one will sit up and take notice but ourselves.

    Now, taking that into consideration, it then becomes clear that one of two men will win this election. It will either be John Kerry, or George Bush. Given that fact, it becomes crystal clear that you have three choices - participate and take a side, vote for a third party candidate who cannot win, or sit on the sidelines and do nothing. Only the first option will have any impact, as the second and third are virtually identical with respect to results. Conscience is a fine thing, but it will be of little consolation when those who do vote that way wind up whining on these boards about some new gun law or assault weapons ban which Kerry is enacting, should he win.

    If both candidates respected our Rights, I'd say go for it. Vote your conscience. Sit this one out, if you wish. But because Kerry doesn't, and is clearly anti-gun with a passion, the stakes are too high to throw away your vote when it could mean the difference between maintaining things as they are or making them worse.

    that's definitely good news!

    Out of curiosity, have there been any polls for Pipkin/Mikulski?

    Haven't seen any polls, but neither have I seen a SINGLE Mikulski sticker or sign.


    Pipkin must have done a good job getting cozy with the MD Republican party because Pipkin signs are quite often tacked right below the Bush/Cheney signs.....


    Got the Pipkin sticker on my truck.....
