mediablitz: Marine1: No shiat. Maybe if guys like you stopped saying "HURR, YER THROWIN' AWAY YER VOTE THERE, CLEETUS" whenever we actually speak our minds on a ballot, we wouldn't have to choose between two mediocre candidates every four years.

Maybe if guys like you stopped trying to be trendy by voting for the "cool" 3rd party candidate who is just another failed Republican that switched to "Libertarian" and you fell for that shiat, we could get somewhere on REAL 3rd party reform.

Rocky Anderson. Jill Stein. None of you desperate to prove how cool you are "I'm third party!" farks ever mention anyone but Gary "I'll say whatever I need to now that the Libertarians will take me" Johnson.

You are WORSE than those voting for the two parties. You are willfully ignorant in the name of being "cool".


You keep saying this Bullshiat.

Voted for Obama last time because he made it clear that he stood for x, y and z. When it turned out he wasn't going to follow suit and vote the way he said he would, I looked for another candidate that I agree with on policy. Gary Johnson was that person. He sold me on his platform when he did a very candid ask me anything on reddit. He actually answered tough questions. I don't agree with the guy on everything but on the stuff we do agree on NONE of the other candidates have differing opinions. Jill Stein was a consideration for my vote but to be honest I don't like some of her positions.

It isn't "cool" to vote 3rd party, if anything EVERYONE gets pissed at you for some crazy reason. I voted 3rd party because morally I cannot vote for Obama, Romney agrees with much of the Obama platform that i have huge issues with So essentially Jill Stein or Gary Johnson were the only other choices. I live in a HUGE blue state so voting 3rd party doesn't at all help the GOP here. I just think there needs to be more voices at the table and helping any party with national representation or matching funds the next go around is important.

Socially liberal / fiscally conservative.

Alassra: CXUnison: Long time lurker, first time poster. (Made the account last night)
I"ve lost FB friends, not spoken to relatives, and have seen far too much derp on my TV.
I've been lurking here since just before the 2008 election, and I've been here pretty much every night until 3:00AM since the GOP primaries. You've kept me sane. I finally decided to join but it took a while because of the verbal beatdown I feared I might get, but now I think I can take it. I just wanted to say that I was here, when the walls fell. I'll post something more useless later, I've got way to much crow to prepare right now.


\Be nice, or don't. It's all good.
=================

As a fellow liter - welcome to the party (so to speak). NO hate, herp or derp here -- I can relate to the losing FB friends over the election and I'm currently observing radio silence there to avoid the outright lies I've had to read / endure.

The latest was the friend in NC who claimed that the Navy SEALs were going to show up to "intimidate" the Black Panthers - but had no source for this claim... I can't wait for it to be over.


Boy do I hope that your friend's post is true.

There is no place for the KKK or the Black Panthers at polling stations. None. Zero.

I'd laugh my ass off if someone was to do a drive by and pick off some of those racist a-holes.

Sadly, modern-day "liberals" talk about tolerance, they don't practice. Their idea of "tolerance" is more accurately termed "shutting the fark up and getting in line with the program."

I'm thinking it is a result of the loud, repetitive, and wrong talking points spewed by most "conservative" friends/relatives/coworkers we are subjected to. We're expecting a Obama win due to polls and other data rather than a "gut feel" and are a bit giddy at the thought of rubbing their noses in it just a bit.

llachlan: qorkfiend: llachlan: Call me naive, but your Supreme Court has pretty much done the right thing on the big issues, irrespective of who sits on the bench. So there's that.

That doesn't mean it always will, especially if the balance is shifted significantly (and there are four Justices over age 70). The worst civil rights abuses in American history - with possibly the sole exception of Japanese internment - have all been sanctioned by the Supreme Court. The Court may get it right, eventually, but it took them almost 100 years to undo "separate but equal".

This isn't really my wheelhouse, so I'm going to ask this as an honest question - do you think that the fact we live in the information age might shorten the those time spans? I actually think that given the state of the world, and the pace that history usually marches at, that 100 years was fairly short (and yes, I know that in human terms, it was a long painful time, that's not what I meant). Here's an example from Canada: In 1992 the Canadian Military repealed 1967s (CFAO) 19-20, Sexual Deviation - Investigation, Medical Investigation and Disposal by 2004 a lot of provinces had marriage or marriage-like rights on the books, and less than 15 years later (in 2005) Paul Martin signed the bill legalizing gay marriage. You guys went the other way - you had marriage first then the repeal of Don't ask, Don't tell. Contrast this with say, Suffrage, which took a lot longer and seems like even more of a no brainer. It just seems to me that the ball rolls faster now.

I just have faith that you guys are not going to jump back into the middle ages - I think that a lot of the prominence of theocracy is a result of fear over the economy, people are scared and clinging to a life raft they understand (it reminds me of the prevalence of environmental mutated monster horror movies in the 70s, and of movies like the Amityville Horror, in which the scary part wasn't the ghosts but the money disappearing and stuff - when people are ...


Three generations of imbeciles are enough.

I voted this morning and voted NO on all the proposals except the two collective bargaining ones.

Fark Snyder..I want him neutered so his last two years are nothing but exercises in floundering.

Why did you vote no against the Renewable energy requirement increase? I'm voting: 1:N, 2:Y, 3:Y, 4:Y, 5:N, 6:N on our proposals.

Michigander here, and I voted the same as you on the proposals. Also, +1 for the black guy.

Any feel for how the new bridge prop is going to go? Stuff I've read makes it sound scary close.

For the next election, can you guys put up a proposal to let every citizen kick every one of the thug POS Maroun's right square in the nuts?

Herbie555: Corvus: Serious what the hell is up with polling places in other states. In CA, i've lived in BFE, suburbs and the city and each of those at most i've waited 15 mins but usually like 5 mins.

What's wrong with these places that have hour long lines?

Yeah, I was thinking of writing a complementary letter to my county's Registrar of Voters - on my short 8 mile commute between home and work, I passed no fewer than 10 polling stations. There's literally one for every little "subdivision" in my particular part of the 'burbs. Even on foot, I doubt I'd ever be more than 10 minutes from a polling station today.

/And we even had limited early voting - took advantage since wife is working a business conference downtown today.
//I'm early voting from now on, was awesome.


Southern CA personal story: this morning I walked a block to the same polling place I've had for 20 years. I arrived at 0650 and was third in line. At 0700 they opened the polls. I voted the entire ballot carefully, checked it, and was out the door at 0710.

This is the main reason I haven't gone to permanent mail. This is one of the high points of my year.

Before I left, I thanked the poll workers for their service (and couldn't resist adding, "The states that have many-hour long lines ought to come out here so you can show them how it's done")

Anyone who takes Gary Johnson seriously after his fake debate with an Obama impersonator should be mocked relentlessly.

On Thursday night, the sometimes-shirtless Stossel and his pal, Mustache, invited Brown and former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson onto their tv show to participate in a pretend debate. It was all such good, clean fun! Ha. But as this clip from Media Matters for America shows, Johnson seems to have taken the whole thing far too seriously-even knocking his head on his podium a few times to indicate frustration with the Fauxbama:

Eggs, crack, omelet.

theres a good politico link in the politics tab at the moment talking about the brewing civil war in the republican party, irrespective of the winner of todays election.

Yeah, saw that. It's unlikely, just wishful thinking.

There are too many people who identify with the brand, and the brand doesn't stand for anything but "my whole family is GOP so I'm GOP" anymore.

It's funny - he's flying into the Commercial Airport and speaking to the press, then going to a super sekrit location to meet with super sekrit peoples that he can't tell us about.

Getting word of major issues in Crawford county (county south of Erie) where they were putting out the "give us ID or else" message and problems with the voting machines. Since there are a large number of Amish folks, not sure how this will impact the results.
