So why did I vote for Badnarik? I'm definitely not a fan of Kerry, and I'm not really much of a fan of Bush. Given a choice for either of them, I'd rather have Bush, by my preference is only slight. I don't agree with all of the planks in the Libertarian platform, either, but I'd like the Republican party to see that they've really been moving too far to the left. Bush is not a conservative by any stretch of the imagination, and I want a conservative President. In the grand scheme of things, my vote really doens't matter much, especially since the main candidates are so similar. So I decided to vote for the candidate that most closely matches my beliefs, even though he doesn't have a prayer.
Now, if the votes in North Carolina are so close that my one vote would have really made a difference, I might regret today's vote. But I really don't think that's going to be the case.
Anyway, I voted. I can't wait for the political season (and inevitable lawsuits) to end.
