    I didn't see a voting thread here, so I thought I'd do one. If you guys have not yet already, and you are able, get out there and VOTE, particularly the folks in my age group - there hasn't been a fantastic showing by us at the polls thus far. Do NOT wait until Election Day and then suddenly decide you're too busy. Get out there immediately and, whatever your choice, VOTE!

    This thread is not meant to be a political debate, just an urging. Please, please, please... vote. It doesn't matter who you vote for. Just that you do.

    We DID have a voting thread a while back, but like I predicted, Count deleted it because it got out of hand (not necessarily because of disputes or anything, but because the author was a bit of a sorehead).

    Very sore head. He thought everyone who disagreed with the lack of knowledge he called an opinion "Socialists.

    I can't stress this enough, though. it is important to vote, BUT it is more important to have a strong decision when you vote. You can't just go in and flip a coin because you can't decide.

    When all else fails, vote independent.... or write in something wacky. Sometimes I just wanna take a ballot and write in Big Bird as a candidate.....

    Ah yes, that old thread from a few weeks back. That was a good thread. Oh well.

    About voting, already did that this past wednesday. Even if you voted for McCain/Palin, we all know who will likely win, which is Obama/Biden. And no, I'm not bashing on the McCain/Palin party. I'm just stating what is likely going to happen come this coming tuesday.

    Yeah, and he compared the moderating team here at MC to the Soviet Union.
    Or Arnold, because of the whole "Arnold for President" gag! ^^
    I can tell you're a Republican.

    I did vote for Obama/Biden last friday and I hope they win this Tuesday!

    Honestly, who cares! We could all probably tell what you are, but who cares? I mean what's your point? :confused:

    Oh goodness.

    I happen to be giving a big presentation on the candidates and some of the issues on Monday. I've been working on said presentation. I realized I needed a break, and so came on MC... to see this thread. I CAN'T ESCAPE IT! :p

    Anyway, I am planning to begin the presentation with a little guilt trip to get my classmates to vote. "For those of you who've been living under a rock... There's an election tomorrow. And, assuming you're registered and you haven't already voted, you should really get out and vote, because there's some big stuff at stake." Something like that, anyway. Personally, I'm voting absentee... assuming I can find a stamp to mail my ballot! ...Or, I could hand it off to my parents when they come tomorrow for parents' weekend... Technically, so long as it's postmarked by midnight Nov. 4th, it counts. If I'm remembering the directions right.

    Aw, lol. Sorry about the reminder, that's why I'm ignoring 24 hour news for awhile! I'll be glad when it's all over (probably not for either result. Just plain glad it's over!)

    Good luck with the presentation! Good for you for keeping informed! :)

    Yep. And this is one of the things we were taught never to discuss with other people... the other two being religion and The Great Pumpkin. :p

    Hehe nice reference!

    Ha! I'm not a republican. Personally, McCain is not going to win this election.

    But, that being said, I'm still not please with the democrats either. Both parties don't seem to get anything accomplished anymore.
  15. CensoredAlso

    CensoredAlso Well-Known Member

    Honestly, both parties just want the votes. After that, they're done with us. They make that quite clear time and again.

    You know? I never said you were neither did I assume you were either. I'm just saying that I do know care if you are or not. I still like you as a person either way.

    I just confirmed that my polling place is literally around the block. I don't even have to cross the street. It should take me under a minute from my front door to the line.

    I have already gone through all the ballot initiatives. Man, there are so many - too many. It was pretty clear to me what they meant (i.e. which programs justify public funding, which measures protect the rights of all individuals and which policies will result in actual improvements). I did leave a few blank due to lack of opinion or insufficient options that rendered them moot. I don't feel the need to vote for the sake of voting. Blank is okay.

    As for President, well we will never get the best of the best. The job attracts the narcissistic over the more thoughtful people out there. That's just the nature of centuries of politics. At least the charismatic guy will win and I hope he actually will improve the country's standing among citizens of the U.S. and internationally. He's got a better chance than the last fellow. Whatever the reasoning behind it, our current leader has dug himself (and all of us) a very deep hole.

    We never know what the future holds so I'll reserve judgment for a while no matter who wins. The one thing we can be sure of is some voters will likely think they're voting for Dennis Haysbert from 24! :crazy:

    Ron Paul is a weenie for not running independent. Well, there's party unity for you... :coy:

    Never say never. I bet ol' Dick Dastardly has a couple tricks up his sleave. Maybe more of those guilt by association commercials that the other side is too wimpy or too "above" to run.

    That said, I want Obama to win, but I really wouldn't mind McCain if it weren't for that crackpot VP he chose. Though I still like her compared to Romney. What an oil drum he was....

    Speaking on the vice president, Joe Biden seems 100 times better there Sarah Palin. I'm all for a woman getting into the white house, as well as a black person holding the biggest job in the house. But Sarah Palin just seems like she doesn't know what's going on with foriegn affairs and what not, compared to Joe Biden.

    But Palin is attractive though!

    *Gives a Palin wink to Palin herself*

    The opposite for me. Ever since Tina Fey started playing her, I even found Tina to be unattractive. She's THAT creepy.
