Think your Vote doesn't matter?

     ABC/ Washington Post poll -- I don't trust these groups -- shows Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in a virtual dead-heat. 2%. Margin of error is generally considered 3.5-4%.
     Johnson is really out there, nothing, and his "minor party" candidate opponents have even less.
     We can expect ABOUT 120 Million to vote out of probably 260-300 Million eligible, and probably 240 Million Reg'd.
     This, of course, is still LESS THAN 1/3 of the Citizenry population.     Should we have a law that REQUIRES people to vote? Say, anyone 18 or Older, criminals (Felons) barred? No Non-citizens allow within 100 feet of the voting booths? Other than that, no exceptions?     People complain about "ID Cards." And yet, most people have one. How about a Biometrics card? Government supplied. You can't fake fingerprints. Of course, not everyone has fingers or toes. Or eyes. But you're likely to have one of the three. Brainwave scan?     Iran requires a finger print. Australia has a law that EVERYONE of ages votes. IDs are required in many countries. How can we do less?      Look at that 2% again. Then look at the 2000 election. THIS shows you how important your vote is.     If you go for Jury Duty, you are required to show an ID. Isn't that interesting? If you don't have an ID, you're barred entry and then can be held in contempt for no-show.     ONE ID, max of about 60, good for up to 8 years. Some will say it's a tax. Maybe so. But you ARE being represented.   2%. In Alaska, that's about 6000. In a city of 50000, it is 1000.  In a city the size of Ft. McCoy, Fl, it's 200.  Bring it to Milaca, MN: 60. Put it in Pease, MN, and it is 2.      A city of 100 -- 2 votes. An Election decided by 146 votes... in a state of 28 Million. Still, 30% didn't vote.
     Can you still say "My vote doesn't matter"?

Some people (including the idiots at facebook) are likely to find this "Offensive."  But they're idiots.

But with 3 attacks (2 bombs, a third that was found beforehand!) and stabbings, I have to wonder if they still believe this to be "Islamophobia."

The Obama QUOTE is REAL, and the attacks (including not far from where I lived in MN) are frightening.

Where is compassion?

Politics is dirty business.  You know it.  I know it.  Anyone who is involved in it knows it.

Today, Hillary started feeling overheated at the 9/11 memorial.  Despite my total disagreement with her on the issues, especially immigration and health care, I wish her a quick recovery.

But one of my old friends... I don't know what's happened to him.  I mean, I find this political rants amusing at times, and powerful at times.  But today... He went off so "half-cocked" including what could have been classified a threat.  Seriously, what he was suggesting was NOT a laughing matter, and certainly couldn't have been construed as satire.

I put a note up on FACEBOOK, regarding the situation.  I only hope he takes it the way it is meant.  If not, there isn't much I can do.

My Reply read as follows.


L-----, despite our dislike of Hillary, she, as a human, deserves some compassion.
If she is sick, she deserves prayers NOT ridicule. And your statement about a "Double dose" is cause for major concern! This is NOT Christian behavior!
And that comment COULD lead to the Secret Service showing up at your door.

I disagree with her on practically everything. Where in the New Testament does it say "Badmouth your enemies"? Politics STILL needs to be tinged with compassion. It is getting dirty and I, for one, am disgusted with it.

My wife has been in the hospital. I call for prayers not vituperation! Let's see a little compassion. You don't have to agree with Hillary, but you can at least tone down the rhetoric. I don't like seeing anyone sick... regardless of friction or disagreements that are a part of politics, compassion is what makes us Spiritual beings.

When we stoke the furnace, we get the heat! READ THAT LAST LINE AGAIN: WHEN WE STOKE THE FURNACE,
WE GET THE HEAT. ::sigh:: I worry about the people of this world. There's too much hatred. We Need COMPASSION... not more hatred! I WISH YOU A SPEEDY RECOVERY, Ms. Clinton. If you're not healthy, you do yourself, your party, and your county a disservice.

Thoroughly disgusted, I am!

A RANT... Please understand how disgusted I am.
I spotted while surfing FB, a picture which was so thoroughly disgusting, so evil, that I cannot help but vent!
It showed a newborn...or maybe a few days old infant...In a PLASTIC GARBAGE BAG! The caption placed by the person who shared said "7 years bad luck if you scroll by. Like and share."
IMO, this is condoning MURDER... A BABY, mind you... in a GARBAGE BAG.
This is really sending the wrong message! 1: Supporting MURDER. 2) Calling a Child "GARBAGE." 3. Supporting the abandoning of a BABY...They tell you to "LIKE AND SHARE" such an action or wish you 7 years bad luck?!
THINK ABOUT IT... Do you find it objectionable?
If you don't, you're not human, IMO! Apes, other mammals, birds..they take care of their young!
That people do this at all REALLY bugs me. But now... Look at this from the point of view of someone who was forced to give up a child.
Then examine the POV of an adopted child.
THEN, consider ABORTION. It's exactly the same deal. Treat our children as garbage. Leave 'em in a garbage bag to die.
If you're familiar with Swift's "A Modest Proposal," you know what I mean. If not, READ IT.
Then think again...Do you support life?
If this has offended you, maybe you need to rethink your views.
