    I want to hear what the urban proletariat will do to unseat the bourgeoise when the class struggle erupts into class warfare. It is after all, an historical inevitability.

    (Your politics are yours, it's just as cliched as people on the right bitching about media bias and foreign policy using RANDOM CAPITALISATION and assumptive language like "of course")

    EDIT: Dammit, I missed an opportunity to make a Twilight or 50 Shades of Grey reference. Can we do this again?

    Well, seeing as Pennsylvania will most likely swing Democrat, and Arlon's southern state of origin (anyone know that one?) will most likely swing Republican, yeah, I think mine might more than cancel his out.

    But, TheGuardianofArlon did the right thing in not voting for the Republican party, infused with Satan's influence as it is.

    i thought arlol was in georgia? and my point is it is unnecessary to "cancel" his vote because his vote only counts within the context of influencing who georgia's packet of electoral votes goes to, something which was pretty much decided back in the 60s when mitt romney was riding his bike around france annoying people with pamphlets about the angel moroni and obama was being trained in marxist political economy by kenyan black panthers and muslims or something

    I don't get it. I didn't say anything wrong.

    I hope I get to witness Arlon's aneurysm when Georgia (potentially) goes blue in a near-future election.

    Betcha Arlon is having the last laugh on us all as he really voted for the Green Party or Socialist Workers Party candidate.


    Arlon, I'm still not totally convinced that you're NOT someone's performance art act. Some of those types can keep that schtick up for a long time. I'm on to you bub.

    Never, ever, ever change your icon from Roger Sterling. I read all your posts in John Slattery's voice now.

    First Presidential election: I voted for Bill Clinton in 1992. I don't remember much about the experience itself, I just remember being sick and tired of hearing about Gennifer Flowers.

    My first election was 2004. I've voted in every presidential, gubernatorial, and senate election since. I think I missed '07 or '09, when the most exciting thing to vote on was judges.

    I miss the satisfying clicks of the levers from when my state had non-electronic voting machines. :(

    Never heard of any early voters waiting 2 hours. Defeats the point. My first time voting was '06, I was a few months too young to vote for John Kerry. Not that it matters because I'm in a deep blue state.

    How come you guys in the US have it so backwards? Red is the left, blue the right. Not the other way around.
