Anyone who doesn't vote should get the stupid flag. Well done subby

Considering you don't have to dodge bullets, or have your relatives threatened, or your life and/or limbs endangered to get to a polling station, I'd say you're lucky and should take advantage of your good fortune.

Democracy is not an easy road but it is much easier if everyone participates.

That was actually rather poignant for fark.

You're right. We have no excuses. If you don't like the current fare at the national level, skip and at least do something for your own state/community.

Voted yesterday here in Clearwater and was quite astonished to see about 250 in line at 7.00 in the morning.

Hope springs eternal.

Good luck to all.

Mmm... I don't know if that's entirely fair. Stupid people have the same rights as you. And, that's as it should be.

Unless you went out, canvassing, sign-waving, spreading information, etc., you almost can't blame other people for how they vote. Not really. They are relying on news media for their information and you and I both know that shiat is far, FAR from reality.

A woman came to the door the other night. Had to be 70 if she was a day. She asked me if I would like an Obama/Biden sign for my yard. Well, I thought she was awesome so I certainly wasn't going to be in any way rude or dismissive. She was out 'walking the walk'. I thanked her for calling on us and politely declined the yard sign, saying my husband and I intended to vote for Gary Johnson.

She said... "Who?"

So, that's kind of your problem. Nice lady. Awesome intentions. Just didn't have all of the information.

And, you can likely thank the likes of FOX News and CNN for the better part of that. But, I also blame myself if I didn't do enough to support good, conscientious candidates here and at the national level.

George Washington lost his first campaign in 1755 to the House of Burgesses largely because he didn't put on an alcohol-laden circus at the polls. That year, Washington got 40 votes. The winner, who plied voters with beer, whiskey, rum punch, and wine, got 271 votes.

He did. The point is that the news media has blocked him, Dr. Stein, Virgil Goode and Rocky Anderson from any coverage whatsoever.

I'm of two minds - yes, we need participation in the voting process, but if we're talking about very low-information voters, I don't know if we really want completely uninformed or misinformed people voting.

It's their right, yes, but voting while ignorant is a dangerous thing.

Eighty years after Prohibition's repeal, [KY and SC] are the only [states] holding on to bans on serving alcohol in restaurants and bars or selling it in liquor stores on Election Day...

My local liquor store (in Montana) has a sign on the door saying they'll be closed all day on election day due to state law. I'm not too familiar with state laws on the topic, but presumably they know their business. Not sure if that also applies to on-sale (bars, restaurants) as well.

So my inclination is to say it's not just SC and KY...

I was paying attention to the debates where Johnson and Paul were the only ones saying anything that made any sense. The debates where, of the people making sense, the only one anyone I talk to cared about was Paul.

I didn't say I think no one should care, I said that no one does care. For proof that no one does care, see Gary Johnson's vote totals next week. Mine might even be one of them.

This is the excuse making that comes from every incompetently run campaign, Democrat, Republican or otherwise.

You get to hear this a lot in Democratic primaries. "Wah! The media shut us out!" You don't suppose it had nothing to do with the fact that your candidate treated his campaign as a part-time hobby, refused to network politically (gotta maintain purity), had no staff, raised less than 5 figures, and spent it all on yard signs?

Stewart Alexander is also running as well. But then again, third-party activism in the USA of late hasn't been about actually nominating and electing third-party candidates so much as about shifting the Overton window and raising awareness of single issues here and there.

Sorry, so long as we have a bicameral legislature with single-member districts by plurality voting, advocating and participating in anything but two-party rule is pissing up a rope and spoiling elections. If you want meaningful change, advocate for a Constitutional convention that rewrites our legislature to at least be proportionally-represented with a preferential voting method. As the saying goes in regards to fixing deficit/debt problems, any solution that does not change the formal structure of our legislature is not serious.

Being honest. Buy it or not, this is a very well-studied phenomenon with the structures of democratic governments and pans out in most democracies. The American government is built in a way that practically causes a two-party system, and for all the blather and bluster about third parties, how the two major parties and the media keep them from gaining power, our own system is what does it. It's an endemic, formal structural problem.

The only way to fix that is to at least scrap Congress completely and replace it with a different system that allows third parties to flourish.

I think it depends on how you define "informed." Does it mean "so knowledgeable I could write a Masters thesis on the subject?" Or does it mean "I know enough to form an opinion of which candidate I like best?"

There are plenty of offices and issues at the local level that don't get enough media attention (news/info) out there, like school board officials (I have no kids, so I really don't pay too much attention to those issues on a daily basis), district/county judges (I'm a law-abiding citizen so I don't interact with the law that much) or bond issues, and so forth. Absentee voting lets you look up the info that didn't get enough mention in the press -- or only existed in the form of mud-slinging political ads -- so you can be an informed voter.

i understand what you mean by 'no one cares about xyz' in this case xyz=Johnson. Bob Barr tried his damndest in 2008 and got 0.4%. OK, Barr wasn't an ideal libertarian, but he was way more credible than a lot of their candidates. Johnson is too, but I think he will be lucky to break 1%. He won't get to the matching fund level, which isn't that magical, it would have come through with like $10M if they had it.

All said, hey, good for him and his voters. They are much less of a joke than the Greens. No one should try to suppress any of these third parties, and yeah, they should get at least a little attention from the lazy mass media, but it would make their brains hurt to have more than two colors to deal with.

In my experience, when people complain about "stupid people" in democracy, they really mean "anyone but me and those people who agree with me." Democracy means letting people you don't like to participate. Unless you can look at the "stupid person" and say "you're vote counts as much as mine," then you are not a democrat; you're an oligarch.

Some of us are considering taking a trip to Waukesha County on Tuesday night. Go to a bar, drink beer, don't say a word to anyone, and just observe the insanity. It'll be even better if we go to some dive that's owned by Jethro and his wife-sister, Cindy-Jo.

A Terrible Human: shiat I can't go to a store where I live and buy booze. I have to go one county over and buy it since I live in a dry county. I'm still voting though.

Dry county? There are still some of those around? LOL,

21st Amendment to the Constitution


The one that says: "The transportation or importation into any State, Territory, or possession of the United States for delivery or use therein of intoxicating liquors, in violation of the laws thereof, is hereby prohibited"?

Yes, that's the one. I'm not a lawyer and perhaps you know something that I don't, but I don't understand how we can abolish prohibition of interstate commerce laws for liquor and have a county defend its right to be dry. Have a precedent? I'd be glad to read it.

Yes there are. The churches and bootleggers really don't want the extra revenue or competition here. It's not entirely dry either,it's moist. As long as a restaurant can serve 100 people and 75% of it's profit comes from food they can serve alcohol.

Halli: phenn: Halli: phenn: A woman came to the door the other night. Had to be 70 if she was a day. She asked me if I would like an Obama/Biden sign for my yard. Well, I thought she was awesome so I certainly wasn't going to be in any way rude or dismissive. She was out 'walking the walk'. I thanked her for calling on us and politely declined the yard sign, saying my husband and I intended to vote for Gary Johnson.

She said... "Who?"

Maybe Gary Johnson should have invested in some airtime instead of paying his advisors over a million dollars.

He did. The point is that the news media has blocked him, Dr. Stein, Virgil Goode and Rocky Anderson from any coverage whatsoever.

That's rather shiatty, don't you agree? I mean - even if you're already in the boot for Obama or Romney - wouldn't you kind of like to hear from the rest of the field?

So the media is to blame for Gary Johnson not buying any airtime?


Myopic much?

Johnson DID buy airtime. Can he compete with the $100+ million dollar ad budgets of Romney or Obama? Of course not.

Does that erase the fact that you could likely count the number of times he's been interviewed on cable news on one hand?

No.
