One more thing. I just spoke with my son and we apparently cancelled out each other's votes. Now what did I do wrong to raise a son that votes exactly opposite me? I guess I should just be grateful that he votes......pj

This Richard concurs. “Just doing something” does not equate to “doing something well.”

Again this can't be said read enough:

It is/was absolutely possible to vote more than once in Chicago. I swear that I witnessed such voting in Chicago in 1968. It only cost 2 cigarettes per vote for each of the three multi-voting guys I watched.

I didn't say VOTE OFTEN in the same election - just vote when there is an election - make your voice heard.

HHP--Oh that kitten thing is rich, sorry I spent all my karma in the photo of the month thread, I'll catch you when they refill it!

2 cents time...

I feel strongly about voting, and I do it. For many years women and people of color weren't allowed to vote--there are/were lots of sacrifices made so we could vote. Even if the candidates aren't appealing there are many proposals and local issues that need weighing in on.
Besides I'm a social studies teacher, gotta set a good example!

I think folks are right when they say it's most important to be informed. Back when we only had the voter pamphlets to go by, or had to hit the library to learn more, it was hard to be informed. Now we sit down with our ballot and the laptop and research everything, discuss and make our choices. And we don't always agree (it's so annoying when you cancel out each other's vote)! Just another wonderful thing about the net.

Hi pjpoll--What is great is that both you and your son are interested in the election process, and vote. Our founding fathers also didn't all agree on the details, but they did agree on the basics, enough to form the greatest country in the world.

Since both you and your son voted, you have the next two years for lively discussion to bring each other around to the others point of view. This would be in addition to conversation on trucks, airstreams, and other important stuff.--Frank S
