    The reason that it is "fabled" is that many voting machines/laws do not allow it and, even if used, it is not much more effective than no vote at all for that office. Please see my post #6.

    We (as a nation) did it to ourselves. We're a nation divided by petty want.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
