    No American should ever vote early. You are simply handing your completed ballot to the liberals to manipulate as they wish. An early vote is a vote for Obama, regardless of the name you checked on the ballot.

    I wonder if we'll catch a UN monitor driving around with boxes full of Obama votes in the trunk of their car. The world loves Obama.

    Wow... that's a lot of big words. But ummm by definition.... all governments (democratic and otherwise) are corporatist (not corporatic, because that's not a word). That is because if you knew the definition of corporatist, you'd know it's based on freedom of association. Maybe try reorganizing the words to suit your constant Libertarian-like attacks?

    Try.... Facist, corporatist imperial government. Yeah, that will make more sense.

    Yeah...that's called early voting.

    Now with computers it should be much eaiser. If the military are not allowed to vote that is certainly an outrage. I think I voted like I was still living at may parents house. It has been a long time ago but I know I voted.
    Right. No one said you didn't.

    Oh, so they can't decide for themselves?

    The point is if they don't want early voting, that's fine. But you can't do that for the military. So...yeah, the military's gonna get 'preferential' treatment.

    Computer geeks seem to agree that computerized voting is fraught with peril and online voting would be impossible with any sort of integrity. Paper ballots with scan counting seems to be the most reliable, safe form of voting.

    Europeans learn in their history books and from their grandparents about how Europe used to be the center of the world. The nations of Europe had great empires, they were influential economically, culturally, and militarily.

    Today, a large number of Europeans are envious of American success. Due to their past, they feel entitled to be the kings of the world, and they view the United States with envy and fascination because of our current position.

    Whenever America projects power in the world, Europeans don't like it. Even when it benefits them. Take Ronald Reagan, for instance. Europeans hated Reagan, even though he helped end communism and unify Germany.

    Bush was the worst. First, he was a cowboy - the least European type of man. They couldn't relate to him. Second, he flaunted America's global power and took us to war.

    Obama, on the other hand, is liked in Europe. He is understated about America's might, and he wants to draw down our military. Europeans like this.

    It makes them feel like we're all on an even playing field.
    nice little rant but what exactly does this have to do with the thread topic?

    Well, if the people of the state want to decide for themselves, then the issue would be more legitimate if it was decided via popular referendum rather mandated by the Republican Party who would likely benefit from the change.

    No, the point is this was elected officials from the Republican Party who attempted to disenfranchise voters likely to vote for their opponents. Which is quite undemocratic. And so to ensure the democratic principles of our nation, early voting should be open for all voters.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Tigger, I've got news for you. The USA is a founding member of the U.N. and they even meet in this big building in NYC. Scary huh?

    If I was an American I would be happy by their presence, America is supposed to be the world leader in democracy and has shed blood to make sure others have the same right. So why not validate your own democracy to the world and show fundamentalists you have nothing to hide.
