This is how I feel, as I can't understand it all in my head how that can happen, but I've always been a "to each his own" kind of person and never expect anyone to think or be just like me...I even have a few conservative friends, we just don't talk politics, we talk other things

anyone into the political radio scene ever notice how Al Franken can have conservative friends, has them on his show, but Rash Lamebaw can't have liberal ones?

Rash pisses off even a lot of the conservative people, (who's side he is supposed to be rooting for) he's just rude all the way around.....

Bush album. Whenever people ask me questions such as this I always reply..."So what I can only listen to Ted Nugent?"...enough said.
But sadly there do not seem to be many Conservative/Republican musicians out there and I find that strange especially in the face of what I believe to be my generations overall conservatism as compared to previous generations.

Well said, Chris. I agree with you - except on the Dylan/Springsteen front.

Trust me, we're in the minority around here with this bunch of mostly clueless, whiny liberals.

Just so you know, I am a conservative, pro-life voter married to a pro-choice democrat. We do great together. Two party system is what makes this country work. Always has. The danger is now that the hatred between the two parties is so intense that the country can't have a quality debate. Hate to tell you this, both parties are poll driven and there really is not alot of difference between the two. Sad but true.

true

but like they say, a vote for anyone but Kerry is a vote for Bush

how does everyone feel about the possibility of Bush postponing the election?

They better not move election day! I'm looking forward to being in Portland on the day of the election.

Does anybody else here hope that in the midst of all this hostile political environment and global instability there might be some sort of music revolution? Like the 60's peace movement.....the anti establishment punk scene of the 70's? The emergence of Nirvana et all in the early 90's?

Our bubblegum commercial music climate should be ready to burst....and history dictates that it takes some sort of rumbling of the masses that triggers this. No? I guess the question is not if it will happen, but can it happen in our "controlled" environment? Will the industry let it happen is what I mean.

Can there be another Dylan/Sex Pistols/U2/Nirvana/Rage Agianst the Machine?

Is anybody else thinking about this?

Wilco noise

Hey frankseven, thanks for mentioning Wilco. I love Wilco but can't stand it when they make noise, why do they have to do that?

and no I don't get how people can be Jayhawks fans and support the monkey, makes no sense.

Nader instead of....

I'm curious to hear from the 3 of you that said you're voting for Nader: Who you would vote for if he wasn't in the race?

Whoever most soldiers are supporting gets my vote.

National security trumps all other issues now and for a while.

Soldiers know more about this issue than I do.

Just curious, why do you think soldiers know more about this than you do? I would imagine the guys over in Iraq may have gone in with one opinion, and then come out (if they ever get out!) with another. I think you see that with lots of soldiers after war...look at the whole world changing opinions after WWI.

Another question...at the risk of sounding like Fox Mulder, does anyone here think there is a possibility of the election being rigged? Are there new computer voting things being installed? I just can't seem to trust a thing about the government these days! (I've seen better days!)

Lightbulb Rigged?

The election will be delayed, because of a threat. All votes cast in red states will not be counted. If you are a Democrat, your vote will be thrown out. All Republican votes will be counted twice. All votes for Nader will be counted for Bush. Get a clue! Hey, I think I may have given Michael Moore another movie idea!

No, Kerry seems like an honorable man. I doubt he'd do anything like that.
