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

To be honest, I'd rather vote for a third party candidate (Peroutka), but given that voting for a third party just gives the opposite main party a vote, I'm voting for Bush. I think Dad voted Peroutka, and my three oldest siblings voted Bush. Mom isn't a registered voter (too busy to risk jury duty atm), and my other five siblings aren't old enough to vote yet.

It's really too bad you can't rank all the candidates in order of preference. The current system is hopeless for third party candidates.

    Which state do you live in? Mine (Wisconsin) doesn't base jury duty on voter registrations. I got picked for jury duty six months after my 18th birthday without being a registered voter.

      Yeah. When I had jury duty a couple yrs ago they explained that different locales determine their jury pools different ways. Anywhere from voter registration to drivers license to picking from the phone book (I assume that is for really small places).

    I can't believe so many people are voting for Bush, he's a blatant racist, but then again I'm a minority :(
