Chris Wissmann on the Election

In his latest column for the Nightlife, Chris Wissmann writes on why he likes Obama, but wants you to vote for Kucinich if you're a Democrat and why you shouldn't vote for Ron Paul if you're a Republican. You can read some of the selections from the Ron Paul newsletters Wissmann refers to here and here.


Am I the only one who thinks Wissman spends too much time trying to make the appearance that he is "independent"? Kucinich? Honest, he's great if you're a liberal but you still wouldn't want him as president.
Wissmann's argument is all about sending a message. If you remember back in 2000, there was a concerted effort to get voters in "safe" Democratic states to vote for Ralph Nader, the idea being the state would still go for Gore while sending a message that people strongly supported Nader's positions.
What we need is a good dictator like Brad Cole to take care of the nation!
I'm pretty sure that argument confirms my opinion that Wissman is a nut, Scott.
Then a lot of people were nuts back in 2000 as the idea got enough of a groundswell that the organized effort got looked into for violating election laws regarding selling votes.

I haven't decided yet who to vote for: Obama for change or Clinton for experience. Never considered Kucinich but would have voted for Richardson if he had stayed in the race. And no love for the Cole-man, eh?
The difference, of course, is that this is a primary election rather than a general.
