Your flaming partisanship isn't terribly appreciated but you do highlight the whole problem right now. The complete and total blind hate for the
other political side just prevents intelligent Americans from agreeing on even the most basic of things. In this case, the need for keeping all forms
of voter pressure or intimidation away from the polling place. Now, I'd be insincere if I just now, at this point of my thread, claimed I intended to
be *NONPARTISAN* about my approach to this. So, it's fortunate that I started my thread that way, right from the OP. You may have missed it...
Republican or Democrat. It doesn't matter. This is YOUR nation as much as the other guy's.
and my next message, I even went out of my way to use an example that couldn't be mistaken for how I'm trying to be American, not simply
conservative about caring to see the elections are free of games or pressure toward anyone, from either side.
Whichever side is INSIDE 100 feet of the polling place (That is the distance, that is the law) is violating federal law. If someone so much as
says "Romney is Great!" out of the blue...and with NOTHING MORE SAID...They just broke Federal Law if they're inside the polling place when saying
it. It's that strict and that clear.
and finally..I really meant this when I said it.
In terms of that, I will say that I'll stand with Libs in crying 'WAIT A MINUTE!' if a state like New York goes Red for Romney as quick as
I'll scream it if Texas went Blue.
I meant every word of it. In a few days, this will all be done and the election will be over. Americans will still be Americans and hopefully, can go
back to being Americans FIRST and right or left second.
Right now, the blatant "democrats are evil ..no .. republicans are more evil! ' crap is just about worn thin beyond all belief. Enough.
I KNOW 100% who I am voting for. If you are voting at all....you KNOW 100% who you are voting for. There really is no point to that side of it
anymore....it's just fighting and picking fights for the pure sake of it and that's counter-productive to everyone.
Now I would hope people are concerned first that the whole thing goes smoothly and as it's supposed to. Irregardless of outcome or which one of the
two men wins.
