    if you consider ...

    writing in your own name?
    leaving a ballot blank for certain races?

    I'm 51, and in 2006 I wrote in my own name for Maria Cantwell - I just got so f'king sick of all the ecuses for her selling out to appeal to the moderately swinging independent center, I was NOT going to support her.

    It felt weird for weeks before & weeks after, BUT, she continues her sell out bullshit AND, I always look at her bullshit and think "I didn't vote for that !"

    In 2010 I wrote in "Medicare Forall" for ALL state and federal offices, and I have NEVER regretted it.

    I will ALWAYS vote.
    I will NEVER vote for those right wingers.
    I have STOPPED voting sell out.

    rmm.

      you did not vote in 2010. Medicare Forall was not a candidate.  If many did  as you proudly did, you could be represented in the Senate by a Republican and it would be somewhat more likely that they would have the majority in 2012 in the Senate too.

      I live in NJ and once raced potentially having to vote for a very crocked Senator - or potentially give the leadership to the Republicans (which they got anyway). I was extremely glad that Lautenberg replaced him -- but I already knew that I would have voted for the Democrat.

        spreadsheet telling you I didn't vote.

        but, keep voting sell out AND getting sold out - it appears that it is o.k. with you!

        did your spreadsheet IdiotAnalysis.xls show that the 60 seat Dem loss was caused by people giving up on selling out, or,

        that isn't what the NYT says, so it didn't happen?

        rmm.

        you did not vote in 2010.  If many did as you proudly did, you could be represented and sold up the river in the Senate by the people you vote for.    They have had the majority for the last 30 years, and people still keep voting for them over and over.

        If you don't stand for something, eventually, you stand for nothing.
