I only wish I had something worthwhile to contribute. But I don't.
Anyways, a friend of mine used to refer to his roommate's girlfriend as "a total Ralph Wiggum". Because she was a moron.
Here's a funny from Daily Kos on that subject: [link]
"Me First" was a good political system, but was replaced with "me first and here's my check."
1) The last two Presidential elections were rigged.
2) No where in the Constitution does it say the Supreme Court decides a close election. But the public and the Democrats rolled over and let it happen anyways.
3) Politicians don't really serve the interests of the public like they're supposed to in a democracy. They serve the big donors, the big corporations with moolah.
4) electronic voting machines can't be trusted.
5) I prefer to tee off weenies who try to get me to vote. It's funny they want the public to vote when their vote will count more (assuming it's actually counted) when less people vote. These people try to tell me I can't complain about anything if I don't vote and it's fun to prove them wrong.
6) I don't vote as a protest. It's a way of saying I don't buy into the system. It's like a vote of no confidence. I actually sent in an absentee ballot explaining as much in writing. So no one can accuse me of being too lazy to vote. I voiced my opinion.
7) Your vote doesn't affect anything. It's a fraction of a drop in a bucket. It's a waste of time and a failed ideal. It won't matter one way or another if you vote.
But you made some fairly good points. Yes, you could say that your vote really won't affect the election one way or the other. You could look at it that way. But if 50,000 voters who felt that way decided to vote anyway, they could definitely have a direct effect on the election's outcome. And since all of those votes are comprised of individual ones, I don't think you can really say that voting doesn't count.
But you're right about Democrats. They're spineless. I couldn't vote Democrat or Republican this year.
I'm gonna guess...hmmm, Bob Barr? I bet Bob's campaign called him the least so therefore.
corporation compliance, big govenment compliance, tax breaks for the richest, middle class compliance, it all adds up. We are now the post WWII fascist country, but like the German's, we don't realize or acknowlege it yet.
Some of you guyz rantz are really scary, I do not know anything about "post wwII fascist" or stuff like that.
But I usually vote Democrat which I did almost full ticket except for that dumbass democrat that ran for Sheriff. Even the Alibi was on to that one (thanks Alibi).
I did not vote for Susana, and I believe the states problems are bigger than her campaign promises can fulfill or even address.
Truth is, the State of NM is in serious, even dire, financial condition. And as we speak, I do not believe the State Legislature will be able to help much. Consider it a year of the Legislature trying to douse wall to wall fires, and most possibly the cutting of government programs, read that: needed services needed by many.
I am optimistic the economy may expand enough to recover some income, the legislature may make it so out-of-state businesses, like Wally-World have to pay taxes in New Mexico and the like.
Most problems, after analysis can be solved, if maybe just a little at a time.
Please try not to be so dire and scary and try to smile more.
I do not want to talk about either of the last Bush Presidential Elections, but I do believe that the old dumbass Texan pulled one over on the American People and through hook and by crook, and I mean crook attained the office of the President of the United States of America
