Subject: Kinky for Texas Gov!
Security: Public
A rare political post.

(FREE) KONCERT FOR KINKY
Sunday, April 9
4-10pm
Stubb's Barbecue
801 Red River
Austin 78701

BRING FRIENDS, FAMILY, NEIGHBORS
AND ACCEPTABLE STRANGERS

For those of you who haven't heard of him or his positions,
I urge you to take a look at his site. He has an excellent take
on the immigration policy, is liked by McCain and by some democrats as well.
He's a nice moderate choice.
He probably has a decent enough chance of winning that voting
for him won't be a wasted vote if he gets on the ballot.

Although I was very impressed with Perry and the way he handled the Hurricane,
I can't in good conscience vote for Republicans lately with them taking away
the rights of gays and citizens.

Really, there's no need to be anonymous. I'm all for listening to other people's point of view.
I do take issue with people's perception that the only legitimate votes are for the two top runners in polls. My version of democracy and voting is that I vote for the candidate I believe can do the best job in office, regardless of what the polls say. If everyone did the same, we'd probably live in a better world.

I posted anonymously because I not a LiveJournal user. You can check out my blog at http://stopkinky.blogspot.com.

When you say, "My version of democracy and voting is that I vote for the candidate I believe can do the best job in office, regardless of what the polls say," I couldn't agree more, but that's a parlimentary system of voting you describe and it doesn't work in a system like ours.

Also, I'm not advocating that you vote for either of the top two runners in the poll. The top candidate in the polls is Perry who's a complete failure in my book and I won't try to persuade you to favor Bell or Strayhorn (or the Green party or the Libertarian party), but I will try and dissuade you from supporting Kinky unless you actually agree with the political nonsense that he spouts as his incoherent platform.

What I don't like about Kinky, aside from his stance on just about every issue that matters to me, is that Kinky is targeting a group of voters who don't know where he stands on many issues and who would disagree with him if they did.
