I don't see why anyone literally has to deal with this crap. Up north they complain that if you don't vote you are a hipster and hipsters are bad. I don't even understand. Why pressure someone into a community? Are you some kind of commmunity fascists? Give me a break one time.
    Who's pressuring you into socializing with anyone? Many folks live off the grid, and no one is twisting your arm to vote or discuss or to sign up on any political discussion board. You are welcome to walk, use the bus, buy a cellphone or not. So what gives? Its not always others who cause our personal misery. Happiness comes from within.

The Christians here hate even Christians of foreign nations who practice a non American evangelical form of Christianity such as Latin American Catholics.

    Then there is voting pressure. Fr years I have noticed voting prssure, rock the vote. When I lived up north I remember once on a public library window it said if you don't vote you are of hipster. Like criminalizing some subgroup known as hipster and attcking people.to hell with this land. You'd find out I really hate the USA quite a bit more than you can even dream.
    You have two options here. You can engage politically, run for office etc and change what you don't like, or you can move.

    YEs there are. You can be so mentally advanced that you are beyond life and death and voting is beneath you. You people that say I have to vote are really the enemies of freedom.

    More bullsh$t American love it or leave it talk. I'm not going to run for anything. You are allowed to live in the land you are from and to believe that it is corrupt beyond your repair and that all political parties available are futile. You just don't want any American embracing infinity. You want us off on a wild goose chase of community involvement wasting out time thinking we can change things.

    I do not choose my words as a politican does, thinking of kissing babies or religious butts in order to get votes like some phony Kennedy democrat.

    You know, based on events over the last 20 years I wonder if that was a good decision. Sometimes Tim Leary looks like a genius and dropping out and tuning in appears much more comfortable than what our politicians have been able to serve up.

    Let's not stretch the definition of freedom here. Enemies of freedom are people who prevent people from voting and therefore prevent them from being allowed to fairly express their opinion. What freedom would you lose if you were forced to vote?
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    It's been done. Look at this old paper. Kennedy tries to run with racist george Wallace to get votes from Alabamans. See how the democrats are slimy trying even to get votes from Alabamans by buddying up with a racist and segregation supporter? DO you honestly think that I want involvement in politics who am merely a painter tag rides around on his bike. My support only goes for true heros like subcomandante Marcos.
