Election isn't that Important when people are going out of their way to Intimidate and Threat other Voters. Every time there's an Election people get more Stupid and less Civilized. Politics is a Cancer, nothing good comes from it. Everyone I know is avoiding the Voting Booths. The General Consensus being that the more people who choose a Side the less Stable the playing Field becomes. A woman asked me if there was still time to Register to Vote for the Election, I asked why she was choosing to Vote now (She's Never Voted) and her Answer was that "She felt she had to". Those are the WORST kinds of Voters to exist.

Sorry to hear that, James - in my opinion, the more people who express their opinions in the voting booth the more stable the playing field (that is, our government!) becomes. If you leave it to the extremists and the ones who have been bought, you're going to lose out. Tell everyone from City Hall to the White House what you think and what you feel you need - as best you can, through these limited and often crippled propositions - and I don't think it can make things _worse_. I agree, however, that the election season shenanigans get worse every time. I spend months concentrating on ignoring all the political ads and dog-and-pony shows, so I can actually think about the individuals and issues. Hard work, but worth it to my mind.

Mr. Nelson we ALL have an obligation to vote...regardless of your opinion.

Roger, I respectfully disagree. I don't want those who don't care to vote. I question on what criteria they would base their decisions. A toss of a coin? A roll of the dice. Let those with conviction, who seek to inform their decisions, decide our future.
