It's your right to be stupid but that doesn't make stupid right.

There will be a lot of arguments for not voting today.
The single most popular is "I'm going to stand on my principles." I'm not alone in saying, "Fine, stand on your principles but by doing so you have just forfeited your prerogative to bitch about the country going to hell in a handbasket. Further, you are the reason the country is going to hell in said handbasket. If you want to stand on your self-righteous principles why don't you at least wait until the GOP's midterms AFTER they are running the table? Just wait until you can vote a conservative over a RINO. If you don't vote today, you have given your tacit approval of a statist/marxist/socialist/communist/power-grubbing, power-mad, leftist who stands with The Won who wants to take down America." So, go ahead, fool, stand on your principles.

Your Say

Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can't help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity. ~ Robert Heinlein

Frankly I don't want stupid or uniformed people to vote. I want the people who are clueless about economics, world events, policy, and history to stay home.

Welp, everything's gonna be all better now, isn't it?

As Dan Quayle said, "The mind is a terrible thing."

Nope, but it's gonna be a damn sight better than it woulda been if the Dems were currently taking a victory lap and claiming a new mandate to rape and pillage.

I guess we have a different opinion of what *better* means.

The winners use the *tools* created by the losers in new and innovative ways.

Then in 2/4/6 years the brain dead herd members will line up again to that which they are emotionally compelled.

Laziness is at the root.
