For The First Time In My Adult Life I'm Not Voting

I'm going to undervote the presidential, B. I don't like Obama much myself, and his FISA vote sealed it for me. He's recruiting volunteers in Texas to go to other states and work, which I consider to be worse than his using us as his ATM (raising millions from Texas donations to buy teevee ads in swing states).

But I live in Texas, where not voting for Obama is done with a clearer conscience, since it won't make any difference anyway. You being in a swing state -- I interpret NC that way -- makes a non-vote a little more critical. At the very least you ought to go vote down the ballot for candidates who will better North Carolina, whether you think those would be Democrats or Republicks.

But hey, vote your conscience either way I say, and if that means staying home ...

@Bi-Polar Bear,
By choosing not to vote you're no better then them!

At least they try to do something and regardless of what I or you think of them they truly believe they can make a change. You don't even try!

@lionbeat,
that's your opinion...I've voted in every other election since I 've been old enough and I've marched, been active and paid attention. I've given back to my community, contributed time and finances to support candidates and paid my taxes. You've got a lot of ******* nerve to judge me whoever the hell you are but it's okay, you're probably a yankee and don't know how to behave.

@PDiddie,
NC will go strongly repub as always. I live here and believe me it's no swing state. Because of the Triangle and the Charlotte area, and to a lesser extent the triad people don't realize the rest of the state is by and large dirt poor uneducated rightwingnuts...engineer a big exception.

My former law partner, retired to your state.
He said that he loves it.

Please vote and make sure that your vote is invalid and forget not to carry your WMD.

Yes of course Bipo likes to be the belle of the contraversial ball, but if you don't want to play along, don't post. No one is making you read his threads.

This goes for all of those who feel compelled to enter a thread only to tell the author that they are bothersome for having launched it.

Good grief, why is this necessary to point out?

Isn't there some idiotic movie ready to be launched that has Kevin Costner as the single deciding vote in a presidential election?

You might think from this thread that Bipo was such a voter.

His one vote in NC is as meaningless as is my one vote in Texas. (For the ignorant: Both states will go for McCain)

If he wants to sit home and sulk, proudly protest, or flip the world the bird, why should we care?

I have to hand it to him.

The Bipo A2K Saga has been fascinating and fun to observe, and he has maintained his relevance despite so many attempts to strip him of it.

I have no doubt that even if he doesn't vote in November, he will be posting comments in December that will attract a fair number of replies.

Of course if one is of the O'Bill school of thought, this is simply another diabolical attempt by Mephistophilian Finn to influence the weak minded Bipo to either vote for McCain or stay home.

@FreeDuck,
If you right click the pic and go down to properties it will show you the link. I don't think I can post a link to Buzzflash here.

There's nothing wrong with going in and writing in Hillary Clinton, or Joe Biden for that matter. Anyone that tells you your vote doesn't count is full of ****. Voting for Obama, if you don't truly support him, is like lying to yourself.

I think that this is what I'll do in November. I've been flip-flopping between McCain and Obama for 6 weeks.....now I'm just going to write in Clinton.

And for those who say that I'm "hurting the cause" or whatever, blow me.

Wow! This is an interesting thread from a historical standpoint.

I wonder where we would be if we had had 8 years of McCain.
