    I will not vote for either one of the named choices. I will either:

    1. Vote for a third party candidate whom I approve of
    2. Write in my own name on the ballot (if option 1 is not possible but there are question on the ballot that I wish to vote on)
    3. Simply not vote. (if option 1 is not possible, and there's nothing else on the ballot which I care about)
    In other words, you won't matter.

    At the polling place, probably not. In other ways, people like me are much more likely to have an impact than most people want to think about.

    I guess it's time for me to pull the Ron Paul sticker off of the back of my pickup. My Obama 2012 magnet will be staying on until November.

    I would imagine that in Denton, Texas, that would increase your chances of being cut off in traffic.

    If history is any indicator then he will pick a liberal judge.

    Mitt Romney is a Liberal, Part 2: Romney appointed liberal judges (06/17/2011)
    Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans, has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters (75%) of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced, instead tapping registered Democrats or independents including two gay lawyers who have supported expanded same-sex rights.

    Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show. In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unenrolled voters, and 14 registered Democrats.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    How many things did Kerry flip flop on? Does it pale in comparison to Romney?

    If your state is like mine then there would be ballot issues and other elections going on.

    I already have a standing rule about not voting for Democrats, and the Romney nomination precludes me from voting for any Republicans this year; so it's pretty much only the ballot questions that I would have the ability to vote on.

    In the Kingdom of Washington, we don't really matter now "EXCEPT" as a revenue stream to endlessly bestow upon the Royal members of Washington.

    I think "None of the Above" is a legitimate choice on a ballot form.
