I didn't vote, as I really don't like either candidate.

Here in Canada that wouldn't work (I imagine you have something similar in the US), you see: To actually be recognized as not liking any candidate you have to protest by way of declining your ballot. This means you have to actually go to your local polling station, ask for the document, and then tell the people there you're officially declining your ballot. It's different than not voting, because it shows that you took the time to go there and your non-vote is actually counted as declined - which sends a message that staying home can't accomplish.

I'm sure that is an option, but not doing anything essentially does the same thing. Either way it's a vote that doesn't go either way.

And to wait 2 hours to say "I'm not voting" seems silly.

The vote here I see by now is all for Obama...
I understand he is likable.And that he stands for change...
But...What I don't understand is if US want a president that seems to wanna pull all back.
That wants to lay all weapons down and only be nice...
(thats how Obama looks for me)

I live in Norway, and thats how naive this country is..
All norwegians is not against the war in Iraq, agaist US...

Many people, the ones that screams the highest anyway, are all for peace, love and all that...
Im all for that to..
But, Im not so naive that I'm willing to trust anybody..

What country is the freestate for a lot of terrorists??
(Exept many of the muslim ones..)
An example, Mullah Krekar, a man that is on video leading a terrorist cell in Kurdistan, Iraq.
He has been there on "vacation", the last time he came towards Norway, he got arrested in Netherland.
Norway bailed him out.
The thing he did in Iraq was, accordingly, hanging with this terrorist cell.

There has been many trials in Norway about him.
Its been ruled that hes gonna get out of Norway..But is he still here??
YEAH!!
We can't send him out, cause its a death penalty in Iraq...
So its safe for him to go there by himself, but not to send him out?
How naive is that???


And also, he manages to complain about his living conditions in Norway.He says he doesn't get enough welfare...
MAN, you've been expelled from our country!!

So thats what I'm thinking...Are you/we really be so naive that we believe if we just open our doors and be nice, there wont be anyone that hurts us??
Come on....

*my opinion...Open for discussion, after all, Im a norwegian that don't know all about the candidates*

*hope I don't step on anybodys feet*

I think it asked "who did you vote for?" I didn't see a time limit for submitting answers. If you asked me 20 years from now who I voted for in this election, I am pretty sure the answer will remain unchanged.

Well, how's about I shut this down so McCain has zero chance of messing things up 20 years from now? :)
