Can you remember casting your first vote? who was it for?

Asked By: greta
My first vote was in the 1976 election.I did not make the cut-off for the lowered voting age. I voted for Jimmy Carter(see how that turned out) But I remember how proud I was....I actually thought my vote was important and made a difference. Wish I felt that way today.

Was McCain simply on the wrong side of history?

Asked By: Brandon
I'm an Obama supporter and was rooting for him long before he won the primaries against Hillary Clinton. However, I also never had many bad things to say about either John McCain or Sarah Palin. I voted for Obama because I think he is the right choice (and now only time will tell). My question is this: Do you think the primary reason McCain lost was because he was simply on the wrong side of history?

Just curious?

Asked By: Anonymous
how old were you when you "chose" your political party? At 18, you can register and vote, however, there are children and teenagers (below 18) that already have very, very STRONG views on their political party and are quick to dismiss other points of views. Thanks, and please, keep it nice. I'm really serious with this question. Is it a family tradition to be Republican, Democrat, Independent? Liberal or Conservative?

Do you think there is a better system than what we are doing?

Asked By: Anonymous
like for example, the outgoing president just nominates the new president? Then there would be no election to waste money, no risk of a terrorist takeover of the country, and America would remain safe and sound.
