Only really for one of the amendments on the ballot. There's one for voter ID and one that would ban gay marriage.
I'm opposed to both, but gay marriage is the one that I really want to fail. I can understand why people support voter ID, even though I disagree and think it's just a big waste of money to stop an imagined problem. Banning gay marriage, though, is simply wrong. It's not legal in the first place and constitutions shouldn't be used to take away rights. And I'm very opposed to using the government to impose religious beliefs on everyone.
The good news is the marriage amendment at least has a chance of not passing. Last I heard it was pretty close. It's sad that it's even close in the first place but at least it's not a foregone conclusion like voter ID.
Not much this round. The only election I got truly pissed off about was 1988. I was a naive student at the time and didn't realize that people really were stupid enough to vote for Bush I. I was mad for weeks. Once I understood that people really would vote directly against their self interests in favor of their prejudices and hatreds , I didn't let elections bother me too much.
Same here I hate both major party candidates for both president and us congress. I just hope the state of Minnesota can fight back the bible thumpers today and say no to the amendment to make marriage 1 man and 1 woman.
This thread cracks me up, full of emotionally dead people who will admit to having no feelings whatsoever, in other words a thread full of fucking liars. Anybody who claims to be apathetic and emotionally uninvolved here is a disgruntled Republican who should be out passionately voting for Obama to teach their party a lesson that if they don't nominate a real human being to represent real conservative values the party can go to hell. Do something you stupid assholes, instead of being swept off a cliff.
I am passionately voting for Obama, because if Romney wins it will be the end of substance vs appearance hence forth in any election. It that fucking position-less drone can be elected, we will have nothing in politics here on out but appearance and marketing. It will mean that the mind of the American people is dead, that they will vote for a pig in lipstick and did.
Not emotionally invested at all.
The sky will not fall if "the other guy" wins.
The economy will not tank nor will it skyrocket based on who gets elected nor will the policies they put in place magically fix the economy.
Economy will improve at the rate it is going to improve and whoever wins will take credit.
Government spending will not change. The legislative branch will continue its nonsense.
Those getting all worked up obviously need an outlet and if they want to get all worked up let them.
