Pagan Choice for the y2k US Election
This week's Pagan Perspective question is a redux of one that we asked about at the beginning of August... And we apologize in advance to our non-United States readers that we have again brought up an issue that is rather exclusive to just one country, but feel free to comment on the shenanigans of the American political system as you see it.) Which political platform or candidate are you leaning towards? Have you made up your mind or changed your mind? Will you vote and who-if you don't mind telling the world-are you planning to vote for? Why have you made this particular choice?

| I Voted For Gore, Although, I Was Originally Going To Vote For... ||Nov 8th. at 10:06:48 am UTC|

I voted for Gore, although, I was originally going to vote for Bush. I don't think Gore is a totally honest person, but I liked his stance on religion, environment, and abortion. I personally would not have an abortion at this point in my life, but the government is not the one who should make such a decision. Life is prescious, as all Pagans know. But government should not have a hand in that decsion. I didn't like Bush's plan to drill for oil in the wildlife refugee in Alaska, and I didn't like his uneducated response regarding Wicca. I did like his tax plan and his Social Secruity plan better than Gore's. However, the issues that were more important to me made me vote for Gore. Now we just have to wait and see if Gore is a liar or a man of his word.
| Even Though I Am Only 14 And Can Not Vote In This... ||Nov 16th. at 9:15:57 pm UTC|

Even though I am only 14 and can not vote in this election, I sincerely hope that Al Gore will win. He supports many issues that I, being a woman and a Witch, believe in, such as the environment, abortion, gay rights, and freedom of religion. Our country needs a president who knows what is good for the people, and Bush's idea of running the country is clearly taking away human rights. It is not for the government to decide whether a woman should have an abortion or not. It is not for the government to decide what people should believe in. Bush does not see Wicca as a legitimate religion, and thus violates the whole "freedom of religion" amendment. More than that, his Ideas to cut taxes are not very stable. The government needs to get money from somewhere, and if taxes will be eliminated or drastically cut, our whole nation would simply crash down. So for the sake of our country, I strongly believe Gore should be president, and I wish with all my heart that I could take part in the election.
