in reply to For whom would you vote, if you were an American?

Looking at issues such as poverty, the economy, trade, deficit, outsourcing, gay marriage, abortion, taxes, affirmative action programmes, social security, healthcare, education, terrorism and homeland security, foreign policy and the role of the US in the United Nations, Iraq, taxes, energy and the environment my political views most identify with that of Ralph Nader, who would have been my first choice were the election not been so hotly contested. Although I disagree with some of his policies I would have most likely voted for John Kerry given the circumstances.

I am not, however, an American citizen and as much as I may know about US politics I don't know what is right for America. Whilst I know the subtleties of Higher Education, Social Security and the National Health System among others of the United Kingdom I recognise that over the pond it is vastly different. Even though US politics and policies sometimes make me angry and concerned I accept that there are things I cannot change and should not try and seek to either.
