  •  Wouldn't it be awful if Romney won CA? (2+ / 0-)

    I know it sounds unrealistic, but what if enough CA democrats decided to protest vote that Romney won CA?

    With the Koch brothers and other right wing ideologues spending money to influence every CA election, I worry for the future of our state

    •  Funny you should say that, because while (4+ / 0-)

      canvassing in NH yesterday, someone said that their kid (in Massachusetts) was going to vote Green, since Obama would win Massachusetts anyway. You know, just to make a point. A woman rightly spoke up and said that this election was too important to screw around that way.  A third man, who was there to support the president started thinking out loud about, well, since Obama had Mass "in the bag" wouldn't it be clever to vote for the Green party... Whenever Dems get clever, I get concerned. Instead of focusing on the (yes, historic) task at hand which is re-electing PBO, they're off on a tangent. They overlook the Kochs, Sheldon Adelson, & other millionaires, & the governors and Repub Sec. of States who are willing and able to discard registrations & votes, or not count them; mostly, they forget that Rmoney has already won Mass once before in 2004 and that he won handily during the recent primaries. Ah, Democrats. Just 3 wks ago the president was leading Rmoney by approx. 6-9 points. After 1 evening full of lies w/ no pushback from the media, Obama was again in the fight of his life. After clawing back to maybe a "close race" Dems now want to screw around some more. Unbelievable. If people are that stupid, maybe elections should be decided by corporate interests.  Anyway, I'm off to remember how chastened Bush&Cheney were by those Nader protest votes.

        if only because people remember his years as governor and the debt he left behind, people in Blue states should vote for Obama if for no other reason but to prevent a national popular vote victory for Romney. Sure, it doesn't decide the election, but would look really bad if Obama were to win the electoral college without the popular vote.

      •  Yes. And thank you for canvassing in NH yesterday (0+ / 0-)

        I am sure that is the tip of the iceberg.
