The Middle of the George Washington Bridge: It's not a matter of "good will" it's just a matter of making a mess of things beyond out borders. I'm not talking diplomacy, I'm talking 1st grade morals. We have a phrase for it in English: "My bad!" or at least "I'm done pulling that shiat." I know, I know, I'd make a shiatty president. But to blame a guy for doing the right thing seems idiotic, even if it's naive.


Good and upstanding men have been martyred by political intrigue since the days of ancient Rome. It's not the intent of a deed that counts, it's the results. Bush squandered America's military and finical resources on an unnecessary campaign in Iraq and in so doing has diminished our ability to respond, if necessary, to the actual nuclear aspirations of Iran or other crisis that could develop. The latter, of course, the most likely: the Mid East is now a very different place from 2003. The new Shi'ite dominated government of Iraq has refused the presence of American forces and continues to become close with Iran, whilst the Kurdish region has becoming increasingly detached from Baghdad. Our foremost "allies" have been either ousted or compromised, as in the case of Egypt. Simultaneously, Gaddafi is dead and Syria in revolt; these, under different circumstance, would be triumphs for American aspirations. Now? They're ... well, welcome to the reality in which American armaments have been squandered in a useless endeavor.

Sorry for your loss.

I really, really hope this thing gets settled tonight. If it drags past Wednesday, it will be close enough that shenanigans and bullshiat will almost certainly decide the outcome.

Also, remember not to use the "Straight Ticket" button on electronic machines-- they often don't include the presidential candidate. Especially in particularly important precincts.

Talondel: CipollinaFan: Third party candidates never really have a chance to win an election but the votes that go to third party candidates are still votes that the major parties want. This means that the more votes that the major parties will try and adopt and adapt to the third party principles, based on the support that they get, so that they can get their vote in the next election. So if you vote for Gary Johnson he will not get elected into office but your vote will help move the Republican party towards a more libertarian platform. It will help eliminate social conservative policies while strengthening their attitude towards economic conservatism.

The problem with your logic is that there will always be more ill informed, moderate, undecideds than there are well informed, ideological third party voters. Logic dictates that the major parties will go after the group that is 1) larger, 2) easier to manipulate and 3) more likely to change their vote. So the major parties will always be better off ignoring third party voters in an efforts to take in more of the undecided middle.


But those voters will still be there. The undecided voters mean more but the third party voters are still numbers that the major parties want to add to their totals. Yes the undecided voters are the main focus of the two parties but the third parties are undecided voters in the eyes of both major parties because they refuse to vote for one or the other so the major parties will make their appeal towards the voters of the lesser parties. They take all of that into account when they decide their platform. The major parties try to find a compromise between the the third parties, the undecided moderates in the battleground states and their base so that they can gain the most voters possible without alienating their base.

screechingbitermonkey: Mailed in my vote for Bronco Bamma a week ago. Oregon mail in elections ftw. I walk by the elections building to work a lot, in Portland, and have been happy to see a steady stream of people driving/biking/ skating by the ballot boxes on the curb and dropping their ballots in.
Romney winning means a lot of lulz for us as we watch him fail miserably. If he does somehow squeak by, I'm starting a betting pool as to when the Nixonesque scandals start. This guy has way too baggage already not to have lulzy shenanigans occurring. And watching his followers get instant buyer's remorse? Might be fun to watch. Also, magic underwear.

But I would forego all that, if I don't have to worry that my reproductive rights aren't going to be stomped on and the Handmaid's Tale doesn't become cloer to reality.


Is it worth Iran? Because that is some serious buyers remorse. Mormons have serious insecurity issues, and if you give this guy the keys, he will use them.

Schroedinger's Glory Hole: Yes, both toward the center. If you think there is a huge difference between Democrats and Republicans, check out the political disparity outside this country. I would prefer an Obama win but am holding out on voting until there is a truly pro-science president that will stop raiding dispensaries and start collecting taxes from religious organizations. You know, Change.


Democrats and Republicans may talk about science but neither side sees it as a priority, mainly because the majority of American's don't either. It doesn't matter what people or parties say, it matters what they do and for government that means funding. Both sides will fund or defund science to whatever degree is needed for their priorities. A Democrat may say they are pro-science but at the end of the day they don't spend the money on it. A Republican may come off anti-science because they will say they don't believe in evolution, but they'll spend money on science because it helps out a business.

How are you going to tax a religious organization? If you taxed them as a corporation any church with even a half decent accountant would show 0 profit and pay no tax. The only thing it would do would be to make donations non tax deductible, but even then some portions would still be considerable charitable and therefore tax deductible.
