    If you are concerned at all about having open space to ride in, Gore.
    If you are concerned about paying less in taxes (and you are in the top 5% of taxpayers) so you can afford more riding, Bush.
    My concern is that both seem to lack sincerity, I'm leaning toward Gore b/c although he is insincere, at least I know he is and can tell, while Bush seems rather shady and coniving, and I have my doubts that he is for the little guy.
    Face it, they both stink. I would say that for horseowners, your local elections are probably far more inportant for that aspect of your life~ they determine zoning, property taxes, etc.

    Josiah Bartlett from The West Wing!!!!

    No, huh? Don't get to pick him? Darn!

    Well, I'm voting for Gore because his platform on three issues I care about the most--abortion, gun control, and the environment/land preservation--are more in line with my own thoughts. Basically, the Republicans in general and Bush in specific's beholdeness to the NRA and the religous right scares the bejezus out of me.

    However, the point should me made that I think Gore is kind of a putz, and had I another choice, I wouldn't pick him either.

    Think we could do a write-in campaign for Josiah Bartlett?

    Another vote for Gore.

    Mostly for the same reasons as Heather, but I'd add education to my list.

    Ditto on that, Gore

    I have one rule in voting for a President: I want the future leader of the free world to be smarter than me. Let's face it - Bush is a 40 watt bulb.

    Magnolia is correct on one count, however. State (and local) elections are extremely important for the horse industry, and neither Bush or Gore is going to be able to deliver w/o a cooperative Congress.

    Open land preservation = Nader!

    Thank you so much for this very astute comment! LOL! This is my main issue with Bush (other than the extremely high rate of executions in Texas and the low ranking of education in the state).

    As they say here in Vermont - "why, he's dumber than a box of rocks".

    Whoa-
    Hobson- Nader Supporter? you must meet my boyfriend. He loves Nader and all Nader promises! I dislike taxes, so I don't really go for Nader, but he has very good social ideas and seems at least ....GENUINE. What is funny is that he qualified for debates, but they wouldn't even let him in the door. Can you say "THREAT". I wish they'd let him debate those 2 turkeys, he'd make 'em look like candles.
    BTW, if more people were like the people on this BB we'd live in a better place. How nice to know that others see around the smoke.

    The more I listen to Bush talk, the more I hear a little bit of Ross Perot coming out. Nice 3 word sentences. http://www.chronofhorse.com/ubb/eek.gif

    Hey TX cliquers - I lived in west TX for a while - and I didn't recognize anyone talking like Bush and Perot - What is up with them?
