Unless you don't live in Vigo county, Indiana in which case you might as well stay at home.

Ever thought this forum might be a lot less random if any of us actually read the contents of each others posts?

You don't have to be stupid to be wrong, and you don't have to be wrong to be stupid.

Already voted as I will be business traveling on Election Day...to Ohio of all places!

The trouble with trouble is that it started out as fun.

Currently Triumph-less. A '15 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V and a '11 Yamaha FZ8.

By the way, the largest single block of voters in the US these days are those who DO NOT VOTE. On average less than 60% of eligible voters turn out for national elections in the US. This is lower than nearly every other industrialized, developed democracy in the world.

Voted Saturday also, long line though. Waited 90 minutes. Was in a "conversation cluster" with 4 other people and they seemed evenly split, but the nicest part was no talk about politics. A bit of conversation about religion since we had a street preacher with amazing endurance. I get bothered by street preachers because I feel you can accomplish more by doing one small act of kindness to a stranger than countless hours of yelling. I once reduced a homeless man to tears by offering him breakfast.

In my best non-partisan opinion I wholeheartedly disagree with that statement. If someone doesn't know who or what they are voting for, please do us all a favor and stay home. I do not wish to be ruled by those who were put there by the uninformed.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Folks who don't know what the terms "Democrat" or "Republcan" mean, for instance, should stay home. I talked to someone the other day who didn't know which party the current president was a member of. I don't see the benefit of such people voting.
