My Grin is an Evil Grin
You're far more far than me. I used to be fair. Now I just want all Republican voters to drop their ballots in the toilet, rather than the box. They've done enough damage already.
Yeah, well, most of the people who read this are likely to agree with you, and the ones that still intend to vote Republican after everything that's happened aren't likely to have their minds changed by me. (In particular, one person who's engaged me in a lengthy debate on my journal seems ultimately to be concerned with different things than I am in choosing his votes. And it's hard to argue "you should care about different things!)
And while politically, sure, my preferences would be better off if anyone interested in voting Republican would stay home, I'm not sure that's the right way to approach that. I can hope, though. :D
On that note, for everybody: if you're not sure which way you're voting, consider commenting here and giving me a chance to persuade you to vote Democrat?
But considering that I don't consider the Democrats to be any better of a choice...
Me, I just handed my mail in ballot to the Mercenary, and told him that he can vote with it and I'll sign it off, just so he can leave me the hell alone about it. It's not like there's a difference between the parties, fundamentally. They both want to be in power so they can steal my money and use it to pay for things that I don't want. Primarily, more government.
This too will pass...
Yes, any government will try to do things with your money that you don't approve of. But the Republican Party is trying to consolidate as much power as it can in the hands of President Bush. The "unitary executive" theory is one of the most damaging things to happen to the US government - effectively, the President has asserted that he is completely above the law.
Combined with the dead-end war in Iraq and the continuous stream of corruption in the Republican politicians, the Republicans are, in my opinion, a far worse choice.
