BgJonson79: whidbey: Marine1: qorkfiend: Marine1: No more NDAA crap, legalize weed (I don't even smoke it). Two easy things right there that could sway my vote. But, nope.

Are you somehow under the impression that Mitt Romney would do either of those things?

Hell no. That's why I didn't vote for him.

You are voting for him.

I'm lost...


Voting against Obama helps Romney.

LucklessWonder: DamnYankees: I'm kind of on the side of people upset at a polling place with a huge mural of Obama on the wall. They should either cover it or change the polling place.

While I agree, if your convictions about your candidate are so weak that they can be changed by seeing a farking mural, perhaps you shouldn't be voting in the first place.


I dont think we should let ourselves use that kind of argument. It's not right, period.

In my little red neck of the woods (in an otherwise blues state (Selma, CA.)), the scantron machine was (get this) BROKEN. They had to put the ballots in the machine by hand with a promise that they'll be scanned once the machine is "fixed".

Okay, I've been told that by voting for Johnson, I was voting for Obama. This was by my conservative family. Now I come on here and you guys are telling me I voted for Romney.

Which one is it?

C'mon, tell me. I'm waiting.


You're helping Romney win this one. No question.

You're joining the rednecks and the racists and the other frankly dregs of society who are voting against progressive policies. Why on earth would you want to be counted amongst them, if you don't share their beliefs?

Never seen turnout like this election... neither have the blue hairs working it. There weren't enough booths to fill out the ballots so people were/are filling in their ballots on the floors, walls, anywhere there was an open flat surface with sufficient perception of privacy. Took me 30+ minutes start to finish (usually 5-10). CAN'T WAIT FOR THE RESULTS!!!!

especially when the cardboard box the voting machine came in could have fixed the problem. it would have involved duct tape, too - always a bonus.

reposting from previous thread: we sent foot patrols out and its quiet in HQ right now. waiting for them to get back...should be about 2 hours. today is all about 'ground game' - talking to voters, getting them out to vote for Obama.

again - none of the local patrols have reported ANY activity among Republicans. no canvassers, no phone banking activity. its really weird - almost as if Team Romney expects to win by name recognition alone.

Tor_Eckman: Marine1: Tor_Eckman: Marine1: whidbey: Marine1: I don't see how voting for a man who isn't a whore for votes is "throwing away" a vote.

Because's it's just an idea. You have no viable numbers to support your decision.

Until you have tens of millions of people voting for Johnson, all you're doing is helping Romney get elected.

Deal. Again, if Obama wants my vote, he can do the stuff to get it. No more NDAA crap, legalize weed (I don't even smoke it). Two easy things right there that could sway my vote. But, nope.

You do understand that the NDAA was attached to the defense spending bill and was passed with a VETO PROOF MAJORITY, right? In other words, had he not signed the bill, your buddies in the military would have not gotten paid, and after a delay where Obama would have been savaged for not caring about the troops the thing would have become law anyway. You get that right?

And do you also get that Obama is not the king? He cannot just waive his hand and make pot legal.

Good grief.

So... people not getting paid is worth trading freedom for... right? Right? And I don't care if he could have been overridden. Sometimes you have to lose, even if you're doing what's right.

He has the authority to sign executive orders stopping quite a bit of the DEA's activities. Hell, to start off with, Holder let MJ dispensers run. Then... again... back to prohibition.

No, dinglefutz. Vetoing the defense spending bill would have accomplished NOTHING other than to delay it's inevitable passage. It would have been a completely empty gesture that would have made him look good for a few idealists like you and made him look bad to everyone else. You do have to consider these kinds of things when you are the president.

Maybe you want a president that makes empty gestures. I want one that's smart enough to know when to pick his battles.


Hey man, I don't consider "No, you can't just label people terrorists and detain them indefinitely" an "empty gesture". Quite a few people don't. But hey, again, if you're willing to throw due process under the bus for political expediency, go ahead.

It's the same thing. There is no viable 3rd party in this country. It's a means to split votes.

And while it's very likely that Obama will win the election, we can't be sure. It may be a tie like Gore/Bush 2000. And if it is, we're farked.

Romney has forsaken PA. He made a half-hearted ad buy at the last minute, but he never built any local support in the state during the entire campaign. I think it will really hurt Republicans down-ballot in the state, particularly for the state senate.

Yes, "progressive" policies. Like being able to label people as "security threats" and detain them indefinitely. Getting felt-up by a high-school dropout at the airport before I can get on the plane is another "progressive" policy as well. Maybe we can have third-party candidates arrested for protesting being excluded from debates as well. You know. For "progress".

They're the best ideas we have, and they're good ones.

Attempting to move forward 4 years, and then scrambling back 4 years to the kind of political mindset that tanked the economy is NOT a good move. Romney wants to go there again.

There were a ton of people voting today in the small Connecticut town where I live today, way more than I've ever seen in the past, probably because we actually have some competitive races this time. I felt good voting for Romney and Linda, even if it's not going to do much good in the grand scheme of things.

You should probably talk to Congress, seeing as it was they who first wrote the bill granting the President that power and then passed it with veto-proof majorities (meaning it would be law regardless of what the President did and didn't do). Also, they're the only ones that can undo it.

Your finger-pointing is entirely misplaced.

Woah, you can vote against someone? I thought you could only vote for candidates.

I can't believe the morans that tell people to go out and vote, and then biatch and whine when they do. Presumably everyone that stayed home would definitely have voted for Obama too. And dead people, who were too inconsiderate to even cling onto life for a few more measly months. Curse them all!
