Great Thread and kudos to the courage THIS position took among this crowd. lol..
I find in many cases...NOT ALL (Looks at our distinguished kitty down the thread) but many cases, the 'it doesn't matter anyway' it weak and pathetic
posturing for why they can't drop the ding d ongs one day every 4 years and carry their butts to the booth to vote. Having said that..I know,
some really don't vote for true conviction. I respect that. I just think it's the exception, not the rule.
Your thread is important and means something though because voting means something. The President isn't voted in by the population but by the
Electoral College. We vote THEM, not him. So... Federal? yeah.. I see the point some make.
However... The guys who have already been to my door for Missouri Rep, and Missouri Statehouse positions to get my vote ARE elected directly by me and
that makes voting in every election worth it as well as a true (as corny as it sounds) civic DUTY.
besides... there are always ballot measures to vote yes on..and new local taxes to vote NO on. Missouri even lets us vote OUT all the judges! We can't
vote them IN....but we have a vote to throw them OUT each time. I hope no Judge I ever get in front of for something reads this, but I take pleasure
voting 'OUT' on all of 'em.
voting can actually be kinda fun!
*** I'd missed the post directly above mine and missed the vicious attack on the other members... Heck, even I made a comment so not to offend a
member on the thread for what I wrote.
I Agree with the premise for your thread and your op made sense. In light of how it went though.... My flag's off. That...went to Fail real quick.
