Just a reminder for all United States citizens 18 and over who are male and own land to vote tomorrow. I won't say who to vote for, but I will say that if you do not vote, I will win. Do you want me to win?

--------------------
You lose.

I am a US citizen who is over 18 and male, but I do not own land. I believe I will vote anyway.

For the record, I do not believe the law [b]ever[/b] required voters to be landowners. :P

I'm uninformed.

I'm not voting.

But I promise not to complain. If there's an issue down the road, I'll just revolutionize.

My absentee ballot hasn't come in yet.

Does anyone else see the problem with this?

I'll vote to replace the current batch of idiots with a group of new ones whose idiocy hasn't been tested.

Land ownership used to be a restriction to block certain groups from voting. Now they are more creative.

I have finished voting and am now relaxing by snacking on liverwurst with my son.

Mmmmmm... pork biproducts.

I will not vote. Because I am Canadian. Actually, that probably wouldn't stop me but I would have ethical issues with stuffing the ballot box, as opposed to stuffing my pie hole.

You know, I actually hate the term "pie hole". I am not sure why I just used it. :confused:

For the rest of us to revel in your wordiness?

Does this even matter? From what I heard, Bush is still gonna be able piss all over the Middle East at will. All Congress can do is slow it down, right?

Congress controls the purse strings. No more funding for the war, no more war.

I voted this morning at 6:11 a.m. I was there at 6:00, and there was actually a line thirty people long. Turnout should be pretty high in Northern Virginia.

Go Webb! Here's to turning Macaca out of office. :)

Is that likely to happen?

Not as such. However, Congress can constrain the heck out of administration practices through oversight and investigations, undercutting the administration's credibility for pursuing its current policy course.

Though this election might matter little in the long run, I had to take this opportunity to bring down Santorum. If that creep had his way, there would be a copy of the Ten Commandments on every street corner, no cool genetic engineered animals, lots of people with Parkinson's, and, of course, plenty of women with coat hangers stuck in their wombs.

From the description you just provided, agreed. There's a candidate like that here in Michigan named Dick DeVos. All the information you need to know is that he conforms to his name. ;)

Sadly, I'm a tad too young to vote. :(

I tried to think of something witty to put here.

Needless to say, I failed.

I can't tell if that's sarcastic. From what I've seen of your politics, I think it probably is, but most people here would agree wholeheartedly with that characterization.

For the record, his opponent is anti-choice.

I voted! Go me!

But what I voted on is a different matter entirely.

I've actually heard that a lot this year. I didn't get mine, but that's because I found out too late (ie, I was about to leave for college) that I needed to personally appear to somebody-or-other-in-charge before getting one since I'd never voted before. :(

Sadly, that's not much of an exaggeration. Also, the guy doesn't even live in Pennsylvania. Sure, he owns a house here, but he and his family live in Virginia. For that reason, and many others, I voted for Bob Casey.

I had to vote provisionally, due to moving and not changing my address in time. It should be fine, though, as nothing was particularly close in any race of consequence in my district.

Santorum is loathsome and I'm glad he's gone.

And it's time again to bemoan the absurd legacy of the U.S.'s direct-democracy movement of the early 20th century: I cast something like 40 or 50 votes on my ballot, which was bigger than legal-size, double-sided, and two sheets of paper. In other countries, one normally casts perhaps three or four votes in each election (for candidates at a few levels of government). In the U.S., one normally casts at least a dozen votes per election, and usually two or three dozen.

EDIT: By the way, the Dems are a lot closer to winning back the Senate than I expected. Taking the Senate in a single election is tough, because only a third of the seats are actually up for election, but they need three more seats, and there are three more too-close-to-call seats up for grabs, in each of which the Democratic candidate has a razor-thin lead.

EDIT 2: Wow. Make that 2 more seats that Dems need in the Senate, and 2 more races up for grabs, in both of which the Democratic candidate is leading by a noticeable (although not decisive) amount.
