"Interesting, so, you just joined today, this is your first post, and yet, you already know enough about my political position to know that I
advocate voting as one of the ways to fix what is wrong in this country."
I know what you posted. Seriously...if you can't defend it, don't post it. Otherwise, man up.
I never said I didn't vote in the last election; I said I didn't vote for McCain or Obama. For someone who's supposedly big on researching facts,
you seemed to miss that one. Big time. "I voted for neither candidate" in your mind, apparently, means that I didn't go to the booth and check any
boxes. Can you also discern from that statement that I shot Kennedy, and am part of the Illuminati? Nut.
And for the paranoid ones (*ahem*), you should reread the post. I am against BOTH parties, because they've bastardized the two-party system. They
want us to vote for parties instead of candidates, and that's the exact opposite of the way things are supposed to work. When I was 18, I registered
as a Republican, and yes, I voted along party lines. A decade of serving my country opened my eyes, and now, I'm proud to say that I research the
candidates, and place votes accordingly, based on candidate platform. This midterm election, however, is an exception--I'm voting against incumbents.
Even those who are not technically incumbents lost my vote; if someone's been in office, and is running for a different position, I'm voting against
them. Hooray for voter discontent.
Gee, I suppose if my very first post had been "UFOs are real!", then I would be generally accepted by the few paranoid hacks in here. Fortunately, I
neither deal with those individuals, nor am I concerned with their thoughts of me.
I think it's great that the Tea Party candidates can overthrow the established candidates, and run roughshod over the primaries. I also think it's
disgusting how some of these underdogs abuse the power they think they have. And the worst part of it is the GOP trying to rally everyone behind the
winning candidate, simply because they won the Republican nomination. (Of course, that's *after* the GOP tries to pick and choose whom they will
fund, due to pouting over their golden child losing a primary election.)
Flame on, whatukno. I posted what I wanted, and I'm done with ya.
