    THanks for the links. I am just sick of all of the negative ads. Stick with the issues and stop the
    Mud slinging. I know several people that are getting turned off from voting because of this.

    Not always good enough for me.
    I've just turned 18, and I plan to vote in every election until my inevitable suicide, but this year, I'm voting for Bruce "Effing" Campbell for the Minnesota Senate race.
    Washington has been overtaken by brainless hardline zombies, and when it comes to getting rid of zombies, who is better qualified than the man who has kicked more zombie ass than anybody in film history?
    I'm not joking!
    That's my protest vote!
    I mean, is this what the Cold War was fought for?
    So that instead of just ONE choice in an election, we get a whopping TWO?
    Neither of which are really looking out for MY interests?
    I'll vote for whoever appeals to me - even if he's not a member of the two major parties.
    Minus a bajillion points if they promise to "protect" Social Security.

    Bruce Cambell is the actor from Evil Dead 2

    Good flick and yes good choice for killing Zombies.

    If you want me to lock this just let me know. If all it is is a reminder to vote then there is no need for dialogue.

    I don't want you to lock it.
    The message is (to me) uber-important.
    Any way to just squash any partisan political talk?
    The only things I'm going to post are informational links to races, issues, voter information, etc.

    *BUMP*

    It's time for this week's update!
    Election Day is TWO WEEKS AWAY!!!!!!!!!

    It is your RESPONSIBILITY to vote.
    We talk a lot in this country about "exporting democracy" to other nations - and then, as a percentage, smaller and smaller numbers of citizens actually show up on Election Day to be a participant in democracy.

    What those shrinking percentages do is allow passionate groups with strong memberships to have undue influence on the outcomes because they vote in numbers.
    If you like or don't like what's going on, YOUR VOICE IS YOUR VOTE.

    Living in a free and open society does not mean that there is nothing which you need to do as a member of that society.
    On the contrary, it means that the responsibilities you do have as a member of that society are that much more important.
    To keep things running smoothly, you need to know that elected officials are taking YOUR OPINION into account.
    And the most direct way to do that is via the ballot.

    Don't like the job Joe Politician is doing in the state legislature/congress/mayor's office?
    Vote NO on Joe!

    Love what Jessica Politico is doing in the Senate/City Council/Dog Catcher's office?
    Vote YES on Jess!

    If you cannot take the HOUR MAXIMUM out of your day to vote, then you really shouldn't bitch or whine about what the elected officials do with the mandate given to them by those who do vote.


    You will do NOTHING GREATER FOR AMERICA in 2006 than casting your vote on Tuesday, November 7th.
