Thread: Election Day in the United States!

  1. #1

    Default Election Day in the United States!

    Ah yes, it's that time again, the Tuesday after the first Monday in November. In the US, that means we all go to the polls to elect all of the House of Representatives and a third of the Senate. So, if you are 18 or over and a US citizen, you need to go vote. I don't care what your party affiliation is, or what issues matter most to you. GO VOTE! If your state has early voting and you've taken advantage of it, congratulations. If not, then today's the day. And like the great philosopher said, "Don't vote, don't bitch".

    We'll need it. Unfortunately, it's shaping up to be our last election as a secular republic. The 1st, 5th, 8th, and 14th amendments are going to get revoked when the Tea Party gets in. It's going to be a bleak decade. Hopefully America will tire of fascism before it's too late. I don't want to be sent to a concentration camp.

    LOL. More like we'll get the 4th and 10th back........ as well as a few more representatives who've heard of Article 4, Section 4.

    As for the 1st, I've had quite enough of the unholy trinity. If that's not a state religion, I don't know what is.

    It's a shame that there's no such thing as a "recall vote" for President like California has for governor. When the Democrats have lost 50-60 seats at the end of the day, the blame can be laid firmly at Obama's feet. This election is absolutely a referendum on Obama's leadership. And yet, he'll still have a job for the next two years (and possibly six more years). There should be a "no confidence" option for the office of President at mid-term. If the "no confidence" vote removes the president, then a special election could be held a few months later.

    Not sure if I agree or not. On the one hand, there's Rod Blagojevich.

    On the other, the best government is a gridlocked government. New spending plans (of our money) are unlikely, and we can proceed with confidence on personal and business activities knowing that the rules won't change for at least a couple of years.

    Of course there's always impeachment. There are 'high crimes and misdemeanors' in every politician's past if you look hard enough. There almost has to be something in the Blago case or the '04 Senate campaign that could bring him down. I'd be reluctant to set that precedent, though, even with Obama. Its hard enough to get decent people to take the job. There has to be some respect for the office, even if the man is a disaster.

    P.S. I have to admit more than a little surprise at hearing this from a committed liberal!

    Maxx: That's the thing -- I *am* a committed liberal. Obama hasn't actually done anything liberal in the past two years. The dreaded "health care reform act" that everyone is terrified about is basically a band-aid (a too-expensive band-aid at that). Obama renewed the Patriot Act (conservative idea), bankrolled billionaires with blank checks to CEOs (conservative idea), revoked the last vestiges of usury with his updated credit card reform act (conservative idea), kept DOMA and DADT firmly entrenched (conservative idea), expanded the war in Afghanistan (conservative idea), kept corporate welfare subsidies going full blast to the utterly miserable corn-ethanol scam (conservative idea). I could go on, but you get the picture. He is NOT the socialist/liberal that Glenn Beck claims. He's actually quite conservative. Even with his very modest healthcare reform, he's already started granting exemptions to multinational corporations (starting with McDonalds).

    In my estimation, Obama has governed like a deep-cover GOP agent.

    I'd love to vote for an *actual* liberal.

    They are three reasons I'm not voting.
    1.US doesn't allow Puerto Rico to vote.
    2.Even if I could I wouldn't, I refuse to vote because regardless of who you put up their They'll fuck it up!
    3.In the current Voting system one vote will never make a diverence,I don't agree with this popular/electoral vote. It should be popular vote and no such thing as electoral bs.

    Hey, let's look on the bright side. Our TVs won't be flooded with political ads anymore.
