STOP THE FREAKING PRESSES! MIKE SHECKET'S PRESIDENTIAL ENDORSEMENT!

Yeah, I'm voting for Kerry. But here is a list of people I would rather be voting for:


I'm basically a one issue voter, the issue's Iraq and the neocons, and I am con the neocons. Basically, I don't care how badly we screw up our own country as long as our country behaves morally in relation to other countries.

Please don't hate me if you disagree. I don't hate you if you're voting for Bush, or even Nader.

Comments:
So you like the Giant Douche.
 
I am for the Turd Sandwich!!!
 
Agreed. There is nothing so immoral as spreading freedom and liberty to the oppressed, especially when it has the happy by-product of making us and our allies safer. A pox on all their houses.
 
I'm not voting Kerry, but I still love you, Mike! I hope you're hanging in there!
 
If I really believed that we invaded Iraq to spread freedom and liberty to the oppressed, I would be much more likely to vote for Bush. Such an invasion would probably come simultaneously with invasions of North Korea, Iran, Syria, Turkmenistan, Saudi Arabia, China, Myanmar, Cuba (again), Afghanistan (again), Pakistan, Brunei, Nigeria, Sudan, D.R. Congo, Kuwait (again), Laos, Vietnam (again), Libya, Oman, Qatar, Somalia (again), Uzbekistan, and Belarus. Then I would really believe we were fighting to liberate oppressed people and not just trying to increase the power of the United States for the benefit of the United States and at the expense of everybody else (i.e. the doctrine of primacy).
 
I definitely don't hate you Mike but I do think it's sad why you think we went to war. I mean the intelligence really said they had the weapons and they've violated UN resolutions for how evermany years - this alone distinguishes from the list of countries you provide. So then we didn't find weapons but this doesn't mean we can't be happy that he's out of power. It's not about changing reasons after the fact but rather multiple reasons exist simultaneously. Furthermore, I don't understand how voting for Kerry helps anything. Have you looked at his record of "support" for the military. What about partial-birth abortion? Common Mike - you've got Lexis and Westlaw - look up the votes!!! What possible basis has Senator Kerry given us for trusting him as Commander in Chief?
 
Unlike you, Mike, I'm proud to be voting for Kerry! What a ringing endorsement you gave - if Kerry loses it'll be because of your kind of "support."
 
What the hell is there to be proud of in voting for Kerry? OK,I guess you can be proud that he is trying his best to get elected by saying what everyone wants to hear! Go "W" !!! Four more years!! Oh and Mike, while I find your alternative voting list interesting and even though I would find it difficult to support Kerry under any circumstances...Jesse Ventura...come on?!?!?!
 
Anonymouses,

You all seem to believe in the Iraq war, and that things are going pretty well over there. I probably wouldn't be going off on a limb if I guessed that you all believe in making a lot of money. You can make $350,000 a year driving a truck in Iraq, and according to Fox News, you're more likely to be killed in California.

I would think that any of you would jump at the chance to make that kind of money. Why are you all slaving away in law school?

I think you are farther out on that limb than you might imagine. Not everyone is in it for the money and such a cynical view is unfortunate. I am not naive, and I do realize some people are at law school to make a career for themselves (and a potentially lucrative one at that), but some of us believe in the law for its ability to make our nation better--to promote morality, equality, and justice--not simply buying a plasma screen for all 127 rooms in our house.

"Each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." RFK
 
I'm currently a truck driver in Iraq. The pay is nice, I haven't been killed (but a buddy of mine in CA just did - RIP), and life is sweet butter.

I'm very glad that I dropped out of law school and followed your advice, Noble Jon.
