Attack on voting

RE: Attack on voting

I suppose I have always leaned Democrat but have only voted straight party ticket once or twice in my life.  It seems to me that the best thing is to vote for the person that best represents you but there's a hitch.  To study each and every candidate and make decisions is one heck of a task.  When I get to the ones lower on the ballot  after voting for the dozen or so people I am familiar with, I am faced with a list of people running for offices that I haven't even heard of.  I don't know who Joe Blow is that's running for the 3rd district court or who Jane Doe is that's running for the assistant to the school board director.  Then it's flip a coin or pick a party or leave it blank.  

I'm not sure how this can be addressed but even if I did spend the time to dig deep into everyone on a ballot the chances of me remembering who I think is best (or least offensive) is not very likely when I get to dog catcher on page 15 of the ballot.

That's gold!  Thank you for making my day!   Hilarious

The more that Third Positionism appeals to the disaffected the more they'll clamor to do away with the two parties. Really, they'd prefer to do away with anything other than third positionism..and anyone other than third positionists, if they could just figure out how.

The Democrats in the Texas state legislature bailed out to deny a quorum to pass Abbott's bullshit bill. Of course we're talking about that down here.

I applaud their effort but unfortunately that tactic rarely works.

Yes, snowflake, it is.  It's not even close.  Too bad you are too jaded to tell the diff.

@onlinebiker I said jaded, but I may be giving you more credit than you deserve. You may actually not be able to tell the difference. Well, I just don't feel like explaining it. I'm pretty sure a 1st grader would know the diff.

The only bullshit here is yours Triker and your complete inability to see any nuisance.

Oh look, OLB defending Republicans yet again. Almost like he's one himself. He'll say he isn't, but that's nothing but gaslighting to try to make himself seem reasonable.
"Tradition" is just a word people use to make themselves feel better about being an asshole.

It's a lunatic take no matter what political associations a person might have.

He's not defending republicans, he's claiming rights abrogation as an appeal to hypocrisy - in the case of texas legislators who fail to possess the votes required to pass a law.
