    is either geriatric and referring to sex, or poorly schooled in civics.

    I have voted in EVERY election since I turned 18 in 1987. Every. Single. One.

    The other fallacy is that our votes for President mean something. They do, kinda, but frankly, it's the Electors who make the final decision, and barring that, Congress.

    I never thought I would say this, but thank Goddess for the little hold-over from Feudalism that remains in our Constitution.

    I am gay, and I'm getting married in the Episcopal Church, just like my great-grandmother did.

      I turned 21 (that was voting age way back then) in 1971. I have never, ever, missed an opportunity to cast my ballot.

      Also, with regard to your point about the Electoral College ... I may get to actually vote for Obama/Biden a week from today, as I'm the Alternate Elector from WA-07.

      Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. -- K.Marx A.Lincoln
