    What are they going to ask how someone is going to vote? I guess if a bus load of free loaders arrive demanding their payment after voting wouldnt cause any friction for the OWS crowd.

    Not surprised at all, Jack. Another thing to watch - the News Media will keep up the "Obama is looseing" headlines all day on Election Day so that people who would otherwise vote against him will stay home and not bother to vote.

    My two cents here: Unless you want 4 more years of this, you'd better get out and vote - even if you hear it is a "landslide" from the news folks. If you get lazy and not get out and cast your vote you have no one but yourself to blame when 'you-know-who' gets another term.

    Same goes to anybody who casts their vote for a 3rd party as a 'protest vote'. Just pat yourself on the back for voteing for the guy who doesn't stand a chance to win, even if your lost vote allows the current guy to keep his seat.

    I can't say about where you live, but here, absentee votes tend to get " lost in the mail ". Or stacks of them are "found" somewhere they shouldn't have been in the first place.

    And pregnant chads. What a weird time that was.

    I will be out to vote. I don't think any voter intimidation will work here.

    even if they do try to block voters, they can't shoot all of us, but we CAN shoot all of them ;)

    If your surroundings look unfavorable, take somebody with you who is armed, and go in one at a time. Do NOT take a firearm into a voting station.

    unfortunately, around here the voting stations are at public schools, which means if anyone so much as gets a whiff of a gun while you're on school property you're off to jail. which is why i carry concealed; lucky for me they don't have metal detectors set up near the voting area ;)

    One accidental flash, and you'll get real familiar with those fed pens talked about in another post....Not me.. The area reserved for voting is temporarily used / leased as federal property, add to that, school grounds..etc..etc.. :eek:

    I realize that this is a majority republican forum but it never ceases to amaze me when people blame Obama for our current state. ALL politicians are aweful, period. I'm neither dem nor rep, I listen to who sounds like they have a plan. Both dem and rep though have no F-ing clue.

    Some socialist ideals have merit, yet I tend to think you get what you work for. What I don't understand is why so many people don't understand the occupy movement? Calling em freeloaders, squatters, etc, is uneducated. Yes, them blocking voters would be a terrible terrible move but to think that they're useless trash that should be shot out of your way is just ludicrous. What's the motive behind them? The government gave a crap load of money to businesses and banks in need, yet now the banks refuse help to people in need, instead think they should allow themselves ridiculous bonuses with the money...that's the reason so many people are pissed.

    People have every right to protest and air their grievances. But they don't have a right to clog subways, block traffic, shut down ports, and tie up police and emergency personnel.

    All voting is at schools here as well..

    So they say gun free zones. So can I bring a sword? Just think 100 pissed off angry rednecks in loin cloths and broad swords.

    Sorry if this bursts your bubble, Hotrodder, but I am a Democrat. I'm just the older style Kennedy Democrat who's against socialism and against total Federal control of our lives. And if you don't believe in this, think back to the Cuban Missile Crisis when he led us in facing down the Soviet SOCIALIST Republic.

    As far as blaming the current Administration for our current state of affairs, it's kind of late to keep blaming Bush II, don't you think? The President MUST begin to accept responsibility at SOME point, no?

    As far as Socialist Ideals - the only place Socialist Ideals really seems to work is with the rich college kids. Plenty o'sex, drugs and rock and roll. Just by the way - the current crop of Liberal Democrats are being led by those same rich kids from the 60s (of course now they are old and rich but still Socialists)

    Final point - I keep hearing the News folks refer to the Occupy Groupies as mostly "College kids". Many of the faces that I see in those pictures are as old as I am. This is no nobel new movement. I do agree with you on one point - BOTH Dems and Repubs are to blame for where we are.

    We are MUCH worse off now than 3 years ago, DUE almost entirely to the one man in the leadership position - president. How is that NOT his fault?

    "All" and "never" are sweeping generalizations and shouldn't be used in debate.

    "Some socialist ideals have merit?" An ideal is a product of imagination, only perfect in its conception, rarely in practical execution or application. Case in point: "All men are created equal." No, they're not. But, at least our republic recognizes the NEED for there to be minimal barriers so that everyone can achieve however much they desire....or, it used to.

    Which socialist ideals have merit?

    These?

    The ideal Socialist situation follows:

    The government should provide me with an education comparable to that of everyone else.
    The government should provide me with housing comparable to everyone else’s housing.
    The government should provide all of the food and other necessities of life and make them available in the market place.
    The government should provide me with a job, and provide payment for the job that is equitable and comparable to that of everyone else.
    The government should provide me with subsistence payments during periods of unemployment, and this pay should be comparable to working wages.
    The government should provide me with decent health care.
    The government should provide all the tools, factories, raw materials, farm implements, etc., which are necessary to sustain society.
    The government should provide me with a decent retirement income, comparable to that of everyone else.
    The government should provide me with all that I need, from the cradle to the grave.
    The government should take care of me and make me feel secure, and not let my world change.

    Such a situation is, of course, possible only under the fiercest form of totalitarianism imaginable, where the central government involves itself deeply in the most minute and mundane details of the private affairs of the individual citizen. [source: http://www.thinking-catholic-strategic-center.com/pure-socialism.html]


    So, NO individual liberty and utter governmental control of EVERY aspect of a person's life is the IDEAL???????

    Those in the "occupy" crowd are at the very BEST, idiots, because they're not even protesting in the right place. They should be camped in front of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in DC and in front of the Capitol. THAT's where the problem lies.

    The government "gave" the banks money, forced them to actually, didn't follow the rule of law and allow failure to be rewarded properly, propped up the corrupt system, allowed criminal activity to continue, and it's the banks' fault? Really?

    Deductive reasoning 101: Who made the rules? Who has the power to enforce the rules? Who has oversight? Who has the ability to change the rules? Who allows the corruption to flourish and actually profits from it? Who?

    Answer: Congress and the President. Period.

    Not the banks, not the corporations, not the millionaires and billionaires. Not the small business man, the mom&pop shops, etc., not even "Joe the plumber."

    Those in the federal government that run this boat are doing it. That's who's screwing you, and that's who should be held accountable.
