U.S. elections are next Tuesday.  If you're old enough to vote, make sure you do so.  If you don't, you deserve to be completely miserable for the next four years of your life.

I agree with the above sentiment, but I have a feeling most people just don't give a shit.

I voted two weeks ago. Fingers are crossed till Nov. 4th.

No matter who wins, I think we'll still be miserable.

It's a shame that local elections and policies are a whole lot more important to our daily lives, yet all the focus is put on the president who probably doesn't affect the average person all that much.

I'm still doing my research on the NJ senate and house/congress nominees before I put my final decisions on that in stone.  I've scribbled all over my practice ballot like crazy.  My dad voted already via absentee ballot since he's out of the country.

So will the new mascot be the giant douche or the turd sandwich?

My sister said the same thing.  However I feel that depending on who wins, important things could actually begin to progress more in areas like stem cell research or alternative fuels (maybe?).  I have a lot of problems with a certain candidate, but it stems more from their demeanor than anything.  Not going to get into it here though.

neither, unless you're one of those Ron Paul fans.  But hey, anything is better than 2004.

Voting is going to be a bitch this year.  I don't get home till 6pm and afaik, the polls are only open till 8.  It's going to be close depending on how busy it is here.  Fucking a more places need early voting.

I'm all for Ron Paul...
I really don't want to vote for Bob Barr, as I think he's kind of a douche, but at the same time, every vote helps in eliminating our two party system.

Why should the government be in the business of developing alternative fuels and stem cell research?

You're right, they shouldn't be in the business of developing either of those.

But they could support it -- and that's what I'd like to see.

Or just go to your polling place during off-peak hours.  Most people vote before or after work, so I'd conjecture that 7-9 a.m. and 6-8 p.m. are the most crowded.

The fed needs to shrink and go back to it's constitutional design.

The whole big/small government argument is stupid dude. It doesn't matter how big or small government is, it DOES matter where its focus is and how it regulates, not so much what. A lack of government regulation is one of the many problems involved in the current financial crisis. Stem cell research? Maybe not. Alternative fuels? Yes, they do need to be involved. Why? Because you can't have one corporation controlling an alternative fuel.

An oil-based economy is going to go belly up in the next couple of decades, if not sooner. Consumption of petroleum-related resources is a major problem in the U.S., and it's only going to get worse if there isn't a huge push both in the public and private sectors to change that kind of thing.

Can't go back, only forwards. Proceed with caution and always be ready to change the plan to suit developing circumstances. Assuming one style of government works for all the ages is stupid.

I'm voting for Barack so I can say I voted for the first black president.
Really didn't expect to see it in my lifetime.
