  • I think that he saw being "tongue in cheek" about that. He also said that when a child reaches 13 years old, the child should be locked in a closet and feed through the keyhole. When that child reaches 16 years old, you should plug the keyhole. He had such a sense of humor.

  • Agree. Our votes have nothing to do with anything besides MAYBE swaying the decision.

  • On small scale or local elections, I believe our vote matters.

    On a national scale, not so much....maybe the popular vote and "proposition" type ballot questions (which are fairly local), but I'm pretty confident such things are decided LONG before Election Day.

  • Hmmm. IDK...there was a prop on our last ballot that the general public didn't even understand the wording - and it passed. Whomever wrote the ballot proposition made it very biased in order to get it passed. It made getting future props being introduced nearly impossible for the common man. Oui - that one hurt...our vote matters but if people lack the understanding it kills liberty.

  • To make a true difference you have to do more than vote.
