Asked to describe how the United States fell short of ideal at a focus group last week, one voter from Keansburg, New Jersey, described a food fight in the cafeteria of a local middle school. The students had gleefully flung chicken casserole at each other, then left it to the school staff to clean up the mess. According to a New York Times reporter sitting in on the focus group, other participants struck much the same note. Candidates who emerge victorious should keep that Keansburg story in mind. Voters on all sides sense that too many privileged Americans, including the politicians for whom they end up casting their ballots, are engaged in reckless behavior that leaves a mess behind.
I'm completely against the whole "Rock the vote" mentality. People should only vote if they know what they're voting for.

Of course you should vote, but only if the people you are voting for have an "R" next to their name If not then you should stay home
However at the state and local level, voting on party lines is IMHO quite dangerous. You get a lot of schmucks who are not really qualified to hold office, especially at the local level. Doesn't matter what party they belong to, your agenda should be to not vote for a schmuck.
With these candidates we are seemingly stuckIf they do their jobs, it'll be solely by luckWhether one votes to left or to rightIt's clearly in sightEither way we're totally out of options.
Yes. Go vote (R/T-P) so that the healthcare bill can be unfunded and repealed!
