I set up this poll because I've recently read an article about "closet Republicans" and "closet Democrats".  Basically these are people who talk one way to appease their friends and then vote totally different once the curtain is drawn.

Just curious.

Michael Badnarik is a nutjob. Guys like him are the reason that most of Americans think that Libertarians run around wearing tinfoil hats.
Even though i'm going to vote for Badnarik (if, that is, i opt to vote at all), i think i'll select 'independent'.

Yep, but since he has no chance of winning, there's no need to worry about electing this nutjob by voting Libertarian. Electing the other two nutjobs though...

Yeah, i mean, obviously it would be crazy to vote for either Kerry or Bush, so i won't. It's just that Badnarik sucks in his own right.

Why do you say Badnarik is a nutjob? I have followed him since the Liebertarian convention when he got the nod to be candidate and I have yet to see him do anything nutty. If you are referring to his being arrested at the debate's I don't think that is nutty. What IS nutty is having a debate using public funds and not allowing viable candidates to participate. Give specifics about why Badnarik is a nutjob.

There was an interesting study on this a while back. They found that women almost always answered correctly who their husbands were voting for, but husbands were much more unaware of how their wives were voting. Particularly in rural areas, women tend to agree with their husbands in public, but vote their conscience in the booth.

A little suffrage is a dangerous thing.  ;)
