Alabama is also voting on:
  • Allowing the Ten Commandments to be displayed in public places.
  • A declaration in the Constitution concerning reproductive rights.
  • A change to the rules for the Board of Trustees for UA.
  • Allowing a public utility to provide natural gas to residents.
OK, so we've got a screwy, bloated Constitution... trust me, we know...

I think on a much smaller scale now.

I realized that voting, politics, govt, etc - are all abstract conceptualization based mostly on assumptions, prejudices, or guesstimates.

No one actually knows what they are doing, everyone's just wingin it and dealing with their personal baggage. It's chaos.

So really the theory of the vote is way over rated and exaggerated.

Power is mostly an illusion. A fantasy in our minds.

Voted in St. Louis!

Way longer lines then I saw in '16.

I'm almost more excited to go over the voting data once it is released than I am in the outcome of any one race or amendment, initiative, etc. I like knowing the demographics and the trends and being able to compare with all the competing narratives vs what actually happens.

I will not deny your right to stay home on voting day. The right to vote is yours to exercise or not at your own volition. I simply am pointing out that others likely have the same attitude, and that creates the very situation you are not voting over. There's a serious lack of logic in that thinking.

I have seen local elections here decided by less than 10 votes. Ten. I can promise you that hundreds of people stayed home that day because they thought their vote didn't matter. Well, guess what? That day it didn't, when it easily could have. That local official likely had more direct impact on those people's daily lives than all the Presidents and Senators elected in their lifetime.

I won an election by 6 votes. If you didn't like me and decided not to vote that day, too bad for you. LOL That's why it's important to vote, especially in local elections. I know they could have found 7 more people that hated me very easily if they'd tried! LOL

Our lines today were light. Took me 5 minutes total to walk up, show ID, get my little card, walk to the voting booth, vote (I had 10 pages to navigate/vote on), review my votes to make sure they were what I actually selected, hand in my card and get my sticker.

I've found out that Republicans and Democrats govern about the same way - wastefully.

Sure they talk different but at the end of they day it's pretty much the same. Status quo and all that.

And I agree, but it's the ballot questions and initiatives and some of the local that matter most.

Michigan and North Dakota have got cannabis legalization on the ballot... You should definitely be participating in the election and hopefully voting 'yes', if you come from one of those states.

"What Matters" is a purely subjective determination, as far as voting in the USA is concerned.

All the good subjects are locked and I have zero voice in them. The stuff that matters to me.

Like do I get to vote on if we have all these nuclear weapons or is this voting thing a silly fantasy to keep the votebots placated?

Screw it, Maybe the federal government will wake up and give the nation as a whole a vote.

If states don't want to make money rather than spend it, they can make a law themselves and chase out residents.

We just gotta get rid of Sessions, both sides would be happy about that.

They should make them scratch and sniff.

Depending on who you vote for it can smell like a giant douche or a turd sandwich.

IDK what Mickey Mouse smells like, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

I couldn't wait around forever lol.

I just moved out of frustration.

It will be like 30 yrs before Tennessee, Texas, or Alabama fix that law.

The way it's worded now, it takes both the state and the Feds to really make it right.

And yeah, was talking to my son earlier... Sessions has been a major disappointment. Sorry.
