I got mine this morning too, G. Now its all over but the crying.Posted by Clinton at November 8, 2016 9:41 AM
My large county with no stop light and small populace, votes 100% absentee because it's easy. I know the Democrat County Clerk personally, and trust her without a doubt. We are almost 80% or more conservatives here, so no surprises ever happen.
It makes me wonder what it is like to live in an area where early voting, e-voting and all of the other Democrat foolishness exists in order to throw elections. Seattle is like that. They "find" bags of votes a week after election day, and somehow the state allows this. Our national guardsmen serving overseas have been known to air-carry their own ballots home just to insure they aren't delayed or "lost" by the state electoral commissions.
When it's all said and done, the voters in King County (Seattle) will have the day. Ballot-stuffing, illegals voting, duplicate votes - you name it. e-voting? Sh-yeah. That sounds secure.
But, still, I vote. Something feels good about it. Washington may go Trump, and I say this knowing that Reagan and GW won in my home state in their time.
OK. It's in God's hands now.Posted by Casey Klahn at November 8, 2016 10:23 AM
"Small population." That's why I leave the writing in the skilled hands of Gerard...Posted by Casey Klahn at November 8, 2016 10:26 AM
Washington votes 100% by mail. No more "I Voted" stickers here...
Casey's already mentioned the other problems with this system.
Hedged my bets by buying an AR-15 yesterday. More to be "in your face" than for defense or armed insurrection. For now.Posted by brinster at November 8, 2016 11:58 AM
I hope you bought it from someone you know (no paperwork) than someone you don't know (4473).
They won't be going door to door as they're too cowardly for that.
A lot of them will get killed if they try, and they know it.
Instead, everybody will receive a certified letter in the mail stating that you must turn your firearms and ammo in to the nearest law enforcement establishment and you will receive a tax voucher for $200 for each hand gun, $300 for each shotgun, $400 for each long gun, $100 for any amount of ammo or reloading products.
When you renew any license you will sign a document stating you possess no firearms.
When you enroll your child in a school you will sign that document.
The banks and the state and federal tax collectors will require you to sign that document.
To collect gov't payouts you will sign that document.
When you try to get medical service or fill a prescription for medications you will sign that document.
The media will broadcast a message continuously that if you are caught with a firearm or supplies you will be incarcerated at hard labor for a period of no less than 10 years in a federal penitentiary.
The media will also run PSA's stating that a reward of $1000 will be given to anyone providing direct information that leads to the conviction of all violators of the gun ban.
Your family and friends and neighbors will become Quislings and turn your ass in.
In 1 year the entire country will have become completely pussified and all of the honorable patriots will have been exterminated.
Criminals from top to bottom will reign supreme.
All licenses will eventually expire and your bank account will (be seized) no longer work.
If you have children in the public schools they will not be enrolled the following year.
All of your insurances will expire and you will not be able to see a medical professional or get prescriptions filled.
True, some die hards may elude the sieve a little longer.
That is when phase 2 comes into play.
Phase 2 includes access to foods, municipal and private utilities.
They will systematically make possessing a firearm very difficult for most people.
See, they have unlimited resources, time, and power, and you don't.
They will win, they always do.
The only way they can be beaten is for them to trip over their own dicks, and they will, as they always do.
Leviathan is a very large drunken ogre stumbling about, bent on destroying all it encounters and the best anyone can do is stay out of it's way and let it kill itself, for if you get to close (to kill it) you run the risk of it falling on you, and when it falls everyone all around it falls to, like a sinking ship it pulls everything close, under.
Maybe someday my vote will not just be a formality. Don't get me wrong, I vote proudly but live in NY State which hasn't gone Republican since Reagan in '80 when I wasn't even eligible yet.
F*@#ing NY City just takes the fun out of everything here.Posted by tim at November 8, 2016 1:14 PM
Wait a minute, our polling place didn't have stickers...! I feel cheated.Posted by Rebecca, now even more deplorable at November 8, 2016 1:44 PM
Ghost, I do a lot of fishing, and I'm known to be clumsy. Losing a firearm in an area lake is not beyond the realm of possibility.Posted by brinster at November 8, 2016 2:00 PM
Careful, it might bounce.
All the bodies of water will be filled with registered firearms.
Have to find a deep lake.Posted by brinster at November 8, 2016 10:32 PM
