Wise advice indeed

"If you are part of a society that votes, then do so. There may be no candidates and no measures you want to vote for..... but there are certain to be ones you want to vote against. In case of doubt, vote against. By this rule you will rarely go wrong.
If this is too blind for your taste, consult some well-meaning fool (there is always one around) and ask his advice. Then vote the other way. This enables you to be a good citizen (if such is your wish) without spending the enormous amount of time on it that truly intelligent exercise of franchise requires.”

I'm in the first category at the moment. I'm going to vote, at least in the primaries, for the person I would mind least in the final running. Since I'm a registered republican, that will be Giuliani. I don't heart huckabee and romney can go back to playing cards with the devil.

However, I'd never ask anyone at the polling place who they are voting for and then just randomly vote against them. The duty of a voter is to form their own opinions on the issues and candidates so that they know what they are doing.

As long as fucking Hillary doesn't get elected, I'm fine. If she does, I don't know what I'll do. [Obviously not leave the country like millions threatened over Bush and then didn't go through with it, but I won't be a happy American.]

Do you realize that if Hillary gets elected and stays for two terms that the same 2 families will have run this country into the ground for 28 years? She's gotta be stopped.

she's a retard. Did you hear about Oprah's feminazi fans freaking out and protesting because she backed Obama over Shrillary? They were all pissed she "chose race over sex". Stupid witches. Of course Oprah wouldn't think about politics.. I mean really? Women are accusing another woman of not caring about the issues but instead choosing a presidential candidate based solely on the color of their skin? And feminazis at that? Isn't that oxymoronic.. or just moronic?
