  • VOTE!!!!!

    I can't say I don't have preferences regarding this election, but I don't care about that. Everyone who can vote should vote. Period. Obviously you should be educated on all of your candidates, not just the presidential.

    The point, though, is that this is your civic duty as an American. It doesn't matter how much "your" candidate pisses me off, or how much you don't trust "my" candidate. Engage in your political process.

    Also, there is a lot more to vote on besides the Presidential Election. Lifehacker has a good article on where you can find information on your local ballot.

    Make your voice heard! Vote for shit!

    And for those non-US forum members, we are really sorry about all this. Don't worry. It will be over soon... we hope.

      Do it. Vote. Don't force me to have wasted all my political vitriol online over nothing.

        ...unless you have literally no idea what the people you are voting for stand for - voting uninformed is worse than not voting at all.

        Might as well decide elections by coin toss if we are going to encourage folk to make uninformed votes.


        Not so noble anymore.

          Hence Widdershawns saying obviously you should be informed on all your candidates, not just the presidential.

            I am 100% sure that if you've managed to get through the current races without looking into the people running enough to form a opinion on them, then you wouldn't be voting in the first place and anything I posted here wouldn't give you the impetus to do so.

              Yeah, it would probably help to read all of an initial post before commenting in a thread, and reading all of someone's post before commenting on anything one thinks they said. That being said I voted a little while ago, even after researching what was going to be on my local ballot there were still initiatives on it that weren't in the research. Good thing I had access to a smartphone and Google.

              ​Anyone else here voting in Florida that thinks the wording of Amendment 1 was some seriously deceptive bullshit? This wasn't the initiative I was referring to earlier, just a tangential thought.

                No, I refuse to vote.

                I want the fate of my country in the hands of others! Wait, that's already the case.

                Okay, I don't want to be blamed for the shit that comes down from the next administration! Wait, that happens already.

                Okay, I'm not going to play the 2 party game because it's flawed. Yeah, that'll do.

                ((Sent in my mail-in ballot weeks ago, I just wish I could have blocked all the political ads that came along after that.))

                  Mwhahaha! Duverger's Law! You have no choice!

                  In seriousness, please take the time if you haven't today to read about any propositions, amendments, etc. that are also going to be on your ballots today. These are the things that will affect you far more immediately than whoever's sitting in the White House, barring someone declaring nuclear war within their first hundred days.

                  Unless you live in San Francisco, then my recommendation to you is to just flip a coin on each of the 42 propositions, because seriously you'll never finish all 223 pages of explanation in time. Additionally, y'all may want to consider installing a republic...

                    Is it too late for the Queen to take us back?

                        Same kind of complaints when Obama 'dared' to run for office and it looked like he was going to win. People are as free now as they were then to live in a monarchy if they don't like democracy.

                        But England's already building their wall to keep out migrants.

                          Britanamerica has a nice ring to it.

                            Taxed to fucking hell and back, but free health care, cheap education, elections that put one whole party in charge instead of this partisan bickering, and we get to count ourselves amongst The Beatles, JK Rawling and William and Kate..........might not be such a bad trade.
