    Voted yesterday. I was going to be in Atlanta for a week, so I needed to push it through.

    meh, per kandahar.

    It's not like there's anything actually resembling a contested election on my ballot anyway.

    I am going to vote. Besides the candidates there is some interesting ballot issues I intend to vote for like banning international law and Sharia laws in court decisions, term limits, Voter identification requirements, only english and native American languages to be used for offical business of the government, and many other issues I intend to vote for or against.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. 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"

    Re: Will you vote?

    I wouldn't vote, but there is a retention issue on our state's Supreme Court because of the gay marriage ruling awhile back. If it succeeds and the judges are ousted, then it will undermine the judiciary across the United States. Weakening the only truly republican institution remaining in our country with a popular vote is too much of an assault on my principles for me to sit this one out.

    Seriously, if Americans want popular government this badly, tear up the federal and state constitutions and start drafting the statutes that will govern moral and economic behavior.

    I think we should give props to the people at the stations. At my station on friday, it was one of the most pleasant experiences I have had in either a public or private building in quite some time. Those ladies were fantastic.

    I always vote. I have only missed one or two elections (including local ones) since 1984, when I turned 18.

    Re: Will you vote?

    One of the measures for us was taking revenues from oil and gas taxes and putting them into a legacy fund that will remain untouched until 2017 for the state while limiting the use and amount of the funds withdrawn. I voted affirmative. Those who disagree would rather have infrastructure building and spending. Though, likely the measure will pass.

    As many might know, we are doing pretty well in this economy. So, the mood here is maintenance of the status-quo if not further hesitancy to enjoy our success. Despite the media not focusing on us, we are removing a Democratic Senator who has held the seat for a great deal of time, our Governor will likely replace him, and the remaining Democrats are in trouble. We are a uniquely political state. Personally, I have enjoyed the mixture of parties for our national face, while keeping a majority of Republicans in house.

    No, The important positions I am interested in are all Republican locks...I did register to vote but I doubt I ever vote as long as I am in Alabama.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.
