That's not politics. That's what it takes to make a country survive!

VOTE!

Even in a non-political, public-service post, there is always at least one who wants to pee in the soup. Get out there and vote. I might not agree with your choice, but we all need to exercise our right to vote. Vote early! Vote often!

I voted a week ago, will they let me vote today? Is that often enough? or should I try again next week?

Being that Dockside Chat has a "No Politics" rule, I won't mention who makes up the largest portion of those that need to be "reminded" to vote.

For those who are humor-challenged, just assume "vote often" means vote whenever you get the absolute legal opportunity (ya know, like primaries, special elections, and general elections).

Republicans are red. Democrats are blue. If you don't vote to fix the current situation then F... You!

I believe we should be able to syphon fuel out of any "blue" boat that has more than you. That way we will all be equal. It's what they want isn't it?

I guess there are at least two who want to pee in the soup. And I would predict more will crawl out and give it a try. I suppose nastiness knows no political boundaries, but I have a hard time convincing myself of that at times. What is "syphon"? Are we making up words now?

I didn't look it up before but it just so happens that Webster's Dictionary lists 2 spellings. The one above as well as "siphon". It can be a noun or a verb. In this case it is used as a verb. Verb def) to convey, draw, or pass through a siphon. Noun def) a U shaped pipe that uses atmospheric preasure to draw liquid from one container, place, or level to another.

To get back to a voting discussion, here are a few things most voters should ask themselves before casting their vote.
A) Are you better off now then you were when the previous members of the Government were in office? Housing? Stock Market? 401K?
B) Do you like the state of our country now, under this administration?
C) Do you think the current administration is positioning us for a better future?

If you are better off financially now then you were 2 years ago then good for you. I would say you are in the minority. If your house didn't depreciate like everyone elses you are in great shape. If you don't know people that were laid off and can't find new jobs then you and yours are in great shape. If you think the country as a whole is being run well vote for the current House and Senate members. If you think American businesses are moving over seas just for a change of scenery then fine. I think the majority ofthe population will not answer Yes to any of these questions and should therefore vote for good change this time.

I thought my responce was quite humorous, I just hope that I'm still laughing tomorrow.

I agree, we should all take an active role in the formation of our government by at least voting at all levels, from local to national elections.

I won't, will not go to the bilge. I think my nonpartisan statement was OK for this forum considering the Mods statement earlier in the thread. If any reference to support our way of life is restricted to the bilge only, so be it.

;? well since as ladyjane says we have alreday taken one step to the bilge.....Aren't these the reasons (Plus drop in our 401Ks, and the TARP and the wars) that "we" all voted against "never veto a spending bill" Bush and for "change") - do we now go back to the same old policies that got us there? David Stockman was the author of trickle down economics under Reagan and even he says "No". We got 30 (well maybe 26 if you take away the Clinton surplus years) years of spend more than we have policy to reverse -

Have we given up already ?
