We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I live in RINO country, the land of Richard Lugar. Democrat lite has no future but as long as the government checks keep flowing there will be no change in political attitudes. Its a waste of electrons to hit the "vote" button.
But even one extra vote takes away a vote from the non-Americans. I would keep voting. Just because his district is overrun with democrats, doesn't mean the state as a whole won't be impacted by his single vote.
It's an attitude like that which allowed for Obama to gain a 2nd term. Defeatist.
Don't let them get to you. They want you to be depressed and stay home. Even if you weren't enthusiastic about Romney, you have to believe he would've been better than what we have now.
I've been googling for an answer to one simple question, did Melowese Richardson vote today? I'm sure people like Melowese Richardson voted today and often.
For anyone who is scratching their head and wondering who I referring to, Melowese Richardson is the Ohio poll worker who illegally voted for Barack Obama six times in 2012. Though sentenced to five years in prison after conviction, today she is free. After mere weeks in jail she was quietly released when her sentence was "amended" to probation. By a Democrat.
Since in Ohio..."one convicted of a felony may register and vote while on probation or parole or after completing his or her sentence." And it requires (this kills me) a person to be TWICE convicted of violation of the elections laws before they are banned from voting for life. TWICE!
So my question is, did Melowese Richardson vote today? But I'm sure she did. If we're lucky she only voted once. (That must have felt strange to her, like wearing one shoe.)
