I have a conspiracy theory on why people are so confident Mitt will win in November.

1) people use the name of dead people to increase their votes
2) mormons have been baptizing dead people
3) mostly Jews
4) there are tons of retired Jews in Florida, a key battleground state
5)???
6) Win the Election

This is the most appalling statement I have ever seen on the Politics Tab.

Mitt Romneys Tax Return: DamnYankees: I don't like early or absentee voting. For myself, I mean. I like waking up at 5 AM on election day and getting to the polls right when they open and participating in the event. Makes me feel all civic-y.

Being an old fart, I still miss going to the polls a bit when voting by mail here in Oregon.

/ Supports vote by mail.
// Ballots won't arrive for another two or three weeks.


I don't really miss it. Sure, it's nice to see the public spirit and visit with your neighbors, but I rather like voting with a beer in one hand and a pen in the other.

/and the voter pamphlet in my other left hand.

What, and deprive myself of the evil eye the fossilized woman at the polling station gives me when I answer after she asks me which party I'm affiliated with?

Oh, no sir. I will wait for that joy.

RogermcAllen: LouDobbsAwaaaay: darkedgefan: What's the point. I live in NYC and want to vote for Romney. NYS will be blue until the end of time. I wish I could vote in OH or FL where my vote would matter.

Pretty sure moving out of New York isn't a crime.

What he means to say is that the current all or nothing electoral college system leaves a lot of voters disenfranchised because their vote literally means nothing. If you live in Illinois below I-80 your vote for president does not matter, Chicago will carry the state for the Democrats even if everyone else votes Republican.


yeah it's a damn shame that those city people's votes count as much as yours isn't it? what with their multi cultural ideals and sensibilities.

I certainly agree. But he "wished" for something that is 100% achievable. The question is whether voting in a swing-state is worth moving to OH or FL (I would guess the answer is: no).

I was that way too, the polling place is 4 blocks from here, getting there at 6:30 coffee in hand ready to do my duty.

Now I take the mail in ballot and go do my duty closer to home.

If you get my drift.

And you would.

As an absentee-ballot swing-stater, I get to both fulfill my civic duty and laugh as I contribute to an election night clusterfark where things seem closer than they ought to. Tastes great, less filling.

serial_crusher: I've been threatening to write in Ron Paul, but I might just not vote (for President) anyhow. Not too thrilled with my options.


If you're considering a write in for President, at least check out your other parties that might be on the state ballot. The Green Party (Dr. Jill Stein), the Constitution Party (Virgil Goode) and the Libertarian Party (Gary Johnson) are all on a significant number of state ballots--one or more might be on every state ballot. There could be others too--these are just the ones I know of offhand.
