I voted

Who else voted today?

I voted for a Democrat, a woman and entered "Jesse Ventura" for some race in which the only candidate was a Republican. No Independent candidates ran.

My voting spot was computerized! Just touch the screen, when you're done hit "preview" and once you've decided that you've voted correctly you hit the red "vote" button.

What's the preview like? During provincial elections here there was something of a preview screen after you voted.. showed a picture of the canditate smiling with a message asking you to confirm your vote.

Oh, ha. Yeah. I'm not all there right now.

No, there was no picture of the candidate.

Also, right before you vote the woman inserts this cartridge as if it was a Sega.

That's terrible. I don't want to actually see the asshole I'm voting for with a shit eating grin on his face. It would probably make me reconsider the whole thing.

I find it darkly amusing that the majority of voters are so stupid that they need to be shown pictures to confirm their choice...

Not that I'm saying YOU are...Just the majority...

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus

This sounds like an extremely complicated system, developed by EvilWhiteMen to trick minorities into voting for people they don't want to
