  1. Jarle, waddya talkin’ about? ;-)

    I’m not sure if you’ve been following various US local elections. For national office, most states are locked up already… those of us who live in California, for instance, already know that Kerry has its 55 electoral votes. It’s a done deal.

    What’s this “vote or die!” stuff? Doesn’t that sound, sort of, like it’s emulating the evil it says it dislikes, or such…?

  2. “Remember: If you don’t vote, you are not allowed to complain about the powers that be the next 4 years!”

    Corollary 1 (As posted by a user on slashdot): If the person you vote for loses you are allowed to complain continuously for the next 4 years.

  3. John D: I think the slogan “vote or die” is pretty rough and cool ;-)

    As to the electoral votes: It does seem pretty obvious that the system with “win all” is pretty much broken, both for the republicans and democrats. Where does the notion come from that its ok that a win of 50.00001% should win you all the electoral votes?

    Joe M: Damn straight! ;-)

    Elf: You couldn’t?
