I just got back from voting.  I feel like a burden has been lifted and I can finally be at peace.

It's no secret that democracy is under attack in America, and I did my part to preserve the Republic.

We won't go quietly, the Legion can count on that.

I voted last week by mail.  I love that I live in a place that encourages voting by mail!

I rigged some votes using an italian satellite! I did my part alright.

Yep. I voted. Not that it will mean anything, since turnout is still bafflingly abysmal. Have people really not been paying attention? I swear to god. After what Republicans pulled on January 6th, taking away reproductive rights with their stolen Supreme Court justice seats, all the Christian nationalism shit that has been going on OPENLY, and all the other crap, Democrats should be out voting in droves. Instead, they're just sitting it out, again. They've learned nothing.

And the independent voters? In some ways, they're worse. If you have no party allegiance, that's fine. I respect that. Democrat politicians certainly aren't great either, but how the hell can one observe what's been going on and continue to think they're both equally bad? No. The Republican Party is fucking evil. It's good for no one who isn't a Christian fundamentalist fascist.

If you're a Christian fundamentalist who wants to force everyone to live according to religious convictions, good for you! It's the best time for you to exist. For everyone else? Oh well! So long freedoms! So long democracy!

No. We vote in person Tuesday. I will be looking forward to not getting the stupid mailers, spam calls and emails.
A cynical habit of thought and speech, a readiness to criticise work which the critic himself never tries to perform, an intellectual aloofness which will not accept contact with life’s realities â€" all these are marks, not as the possessor would fain to think, of superiority but of weakness. -TR

Or, less philosophically and more literally...


That said, voted a few days ago.

I voted a couple of weeks ago when our county opened in person early voting at the county admin building.

I actually got one flier for a politician I appreciated. It had no fear mongering. No buzz words. Just, "Here's what I've accomplished so far, and what I plan to do if re-elected." It didn't even say what his party alignment was. I was planning to vote for him regardless, but I looked it up, and saw he was a Democrat. Go figure.

No pot, porn, and abortion? (presumably, in that order)  Oh yeah, and don't forget to punish the people who tried to do a coup.

^ I wonder how these people sleep at night. They may just be insane. Any rational person just has to hear what comes out of the mouth of a person and decide for themselves if they are loco. I don't need either the "left" or "right" media to spin it for me. I really do have an issue with people acting like sheep...on both sides of the political "divide". I worked on repairs again for our rental house. I was beat due to low caffeine when I got back, so I didn't get to my ballot. Ima get caffeinated in the morning and fill out my mail-in ballot before I go back over. Man, I'll be happy when this shit is over with (as in, sold house!). I took home a bunch of tools and such, because I'm done with them. The more tools I take home, the closer to finished I am.

I was gonna vote Red, but then I got high, and voted Blue.

Vote Red if you want blood in the streets. Vote Blue if you have sky-high hope.

My husband and I went to the polling place together so we can cancel out each other's votes.

Badgered the whole family to the point that even the most reluctant have cast their vote.  Hopefully, that's just enough to put off you know, the whole death of American democracy thing.  No biggie.

Mr.Obvious

Kind of feel like america already died. At least the idea of america. What you guys are doing is cpr.
And i hope it works. Cuz i'm scared of a world in which it doesn't.
