Your Vote Doesn't Count
I normally respond to questions about who I'm voting for by snidely explaining that I was preparing to vote with my feet. I have long felt that my one single vote was of zero consequence and that the process was pointless. This was all before I had a chance to see things like the movie Recount, which is geared to point out that we do indeed have idiots in charge. The smart people all operate behind the scenes.
And now, as if to prove that the story told in Recount was most definitely not fiction, CNN brings us news of voting mismanagement both recent and historic.
So, now you have proof that your vote really doesn't count anymore.
Personally, my plans are to expatriate to The Netherlands (Amsterdam, specifically, of course) if McCain gets into office. I had planned for it regardless of who won, but that was back before I found out that the Democrats were not just going to put forth another old white guy.
Of course, to compete, McCain had to go find a woman to be his running mate (despite all of the friction that is costing them).
I'd vote for anybody that wasn't just another old white guy, honestly. I believe that we should give women and minorities an equal chance to make a mess of things...
