Doesn't matter how many turn out or if they lie about voter turnout or if ( my favorite ) no one turns out ? Obama will be selected. And most people will continue to play Marco Polo.

It said a lot, actually.
Err.. lol.. Hope that didn't cross what you were hoping not to see... I'm not saying people can't complain...simply that we wouldn't know what really works or doesn't unless we got just one year with a TRUE majority of those eligible showing up..and things still went bad. Then, well... Something less than that started a little disagreement between the states back in the 1860's..eh? We can't even joke about that when we can't even get much over 50% to drop the Doritos and ding dongs to go spend 10 minutes on a vote that's 100% free... lol
I'd rather fewer total votes than votes just thrown willy nilly by people simply sick of the whole system. Sometimes Local issues DO come 'that close' and it would be infuriating to learn someone I knew just basically threw a dart to vote a choice and made up a small margin the wrong way.
