I voted.
Did you?
I think the US should adopt a policy similar to Australia, where people are fined if they don't vote.

    Maybe it would be better if they were beaten if they voted incorrectly (I.E. differently than me). Stupid twits.

    I didn't vote but I was put on an Oregon ballet and received one vote.

    Needing conversation right now. So I'll pretend you're listening and here it goes:

    I went in to Bob the Internship yesterday to write up a section of the last issue of the paper for the year. I heard A--hole Jerk New Staff Writer on the phone loudly bragging how he doesn't ever vote because "some idiot liberal will just cancel out my vote.."

    He commenced to criticize issues I think make a lot of sense, and he used the canned conservative arguments I hear too many times over here.

    Now, I know that everyone has a right to their opinion, but I don't think he has bragging rights because he doesn't vote.

    OK. That's my cleaned-up rant sans F words and Sh-eye-tee words and so forth.

    So, like .. write something new now. It's been DAYS

    Oh -- voodew -- who put you on the ballot and who voted for you?

    (still pretending people are listening to me )

    AND, I think the collected fines should be divided and given to our service people, tax free.

    DooDude, I live in Washington, and I don't remember your last name, but...there is always next year.

    Belaja! That is a scream :) There is nobody like her.

    Oh, man, the cosmic forces that gathered us all up as friends. Remind me to thank my lucky stars :)

    Yeah -- the vets that were suckered into fighting old farts' wars should get the money.

    Hey! I will post anyway even though nobody is probably reading on this post anymore. I put voodew on the ballot for an Oregon State Representative position. I knew too much dirt about the Democrat and could not in good conscience vote for any Rethuglican (a term I am stealing from Miranda). I'd just been reading a voodude post or something and was filling out my ballot (we do mail-in ballots in Oregon) and so I thought--Voodew would make an AWESOME congressman! I agree with all his positions (though I would not dare try some of them. Shut up.) So I put him in as a write-in candidate. It was an exciting race and it looked like he was going to pull into the lead there for a minute. But then they counted the second vote and he never recovered. I blame myself. I should have campaigned harder.
