Well, I sure caused some unforeseen ruckus yesterday by putting up my Vote Republican banner! I somehow have this unintentional tendency of getting everybody all riled up by getting their adrenalin going in a big way! I’m sure glad you all couldn’t get me in the flesh, ‘cuz I would have been hung by the nearest tree! OUCH! Just look at it this way, I sure did get all those built up frustrations you’d been having, out in the open, huh? Heh heh

You kids need to give me an award! I do believe I’d make it to the Guinness World Records as the girl who has lost more LJ friends than anybody in the internet world

I sure did lose one yesterday, but I’m not surprised anymore, because since I started this LJ, I’ve lost over 200 friends! Three stand out in my mind BIG TIME. One guy threw me away ‘cuz I called some guy in the military a coward because he refused to go to Iraq. He called me a Nazi! Can you imagine? And here I’m a minority! The other one cast me away ‘cuz I went crazy trying to save the life of a person who was going to commit suicide!! And the latest one said Good-bye, because I was so inconsistent with my political choices, and because I said I’d vote Republican!! What this person failed to see in my user info. Page is my admission that I’m totally inconsistent in EVERYTHING!! :o)

I VOTED TODAY! YAY! Thank God this turmoil is over for me.

I read you ALL, and saw so many things I hadn’t before. What better source but from my LJ friends?! I just can’t believe my luck at having acquired so many well read, well informed friends like you!

I suppose I’m officially a DEMOCRAT, because I voted for only ONE Republican. There were a couple that I had no idea who the hell to vote for, so I just did my usual “Inny minny miney moe! Catch a tiger by the toe! If he hollers let him go!” thingy, and they came out Democrat!

What’s important here is that we are ALL Americans, and we should ALL stick together, and we should ALL get out there and VOTE!!

I say this from the bottom of my heart! I really and truly love you ALL, and I wish the very best for ALL of you, and may God continue to BLESS AMERICA!

For the sake of this country, I pray to God that I, as well as all of you, made the right choices when I voted today! I have come to realize one thing for sure, I DO NOT like politics, and get chills at the mere thought of 2008!

I deserve a good spanking! :o)

If you're not registered with the party, you aren't an actual member. Though I myself -am- a Democrat, I do not fault you for not being one. I have some extremely strong personal convictions behind -my- reason for being one, but I do not expect you to adhere to those, as you're not me.

You have my respect for voting your conscience, and you would have had it even if every name you checked off had an (R) by it. You do at least vote, which is more than I can say of some of my closest friends growing up. And even if the discourse through which you come to make your decisions doesn't appear to me to be logical, or even peaceful, you actually do reason your way through each decision you make at the polls, and this is a lot rarer a quality than you think. Congratulations. :)

And no, I'd never hang you. Not in this lifetime, and not in the next.

I am a registered ...
I am a registered Democrat. This election, I voted for one Republican; the rest were Demo's.

If you will go back further in my LJ posts, you'll find that I was upset I was about the Writ of Habeas Corpus, among other things.

I became suddenly frightened at the prospect of the Democrats taking away our right to bear arms, and that is why I suddenly went nuts and felt I would have to vote Republican.

I appreciate you not hanging me! :o)

By and by, I've missed your comments here. Really, and truly!

some people...
can never read between the lines. Ugh. Those are the people that leave you. Sure, I've contemplated kicking you off my list, but then again...


At least there'll be no more of the Bush ilk. Hopefully whomever's the prez then will acquire a brand new cabinet of people to work with. If I kept one from the current admin, it'd have to be Ms. Rice, but... only if she can put aside the brainwashing that she's suffered under the Bush administration.

I hope the Democrats can win back Congress today.

Every time I enter a voting booth I vote according to my councious and if any one doesn't like how I voted they can go lay an egg.


You go girl!! Proud of you! Job well done. . . and so what if you go back and forth and change your mind, you are DECIDED each time you do.

I'm not unfriending you anytime soon. **I'mmmmm** not a wimp!! **grins and hugs to you!!**

There's no way in hell you or I are wimps! Not with our pretty pistols at our side! :o)

You make me so happy when you comment here!

Should have voted Socialist ;)
Nov. 9th, 2006 02:12 am (UTC)
Next time around, I will! :o)
Nov. 7th, 2006 07:46 pm (UTC)
You go girl, I voted early and split the ticket pretty much. add me to your friends.

Re: vote
Voting has automatically given us the right to complain about things we do not like, when it comes to politics! :o)

I've added you, Sweety Pie!
Nov. 7th, 2006 08:03 pm (UTC)
Nah I'd never hang ya. Unless you refused to give me a good recipe. :)

ANd I am glad you voted. Even though we disagree, that is soooo important.
Nov. 9th, 2006 06:18 am (UTC)
I always knew you wouldn't
I always knew you wouldn't!

I don't disagree so much anymore. Just went a little insane for a moment there, but you all laid out the whip and managed to make me walk a staight line again! :o)

I find it so strange, that I'm not so afraid anymore. I now have hope again in this country!

One of these days I'll make a post on my original, delicious chile con queso!

And what a show ...
And what a show last night was, huh?!

I'm watching Fox News right now, and nobody on there is behaving in the usual pompous manner they used to! :o)

OMG! I must do a write up on BILLY O'Reilly soon. I do believe he'll be going into one of those major tantrums he's well known for!

Why do I watch BILLY? Because I'm a glutton for punishment!

I just read your Vote Republician post and the comments. Wow! I wonder how many of them actually vote. I believe there are way more complainers than voters in this country. If they actually take the time to vote, and it took me quite awhile to vote today, then they can bitch, otherwise NOT.
Nov. 9th, 2006 06:24 am (UTC)
I find it so sad
I find it so sad, if not tragic, that so many people do not bother voting. Don't they realize that the VOTE is worth more than all the gold in the world?!

You should always vote your conscious, whatever that may be. I may disagree with a lot of voters, but the only ones I do not respect are uninformed voters. Uninformed voters often cast votes that violate their own conscious simply because they are too lazy to become informed.

My votes were split between independents, democrats and libertarians. No republicans for me. =)

I shouldn't have gotten to the point I did
I shouldn't have gotten to the point I did, because it affected me terribly. I've been going through this for quite some time and I'm glad it's finally over. I just wanted to make sure I voted right. It was as if I had $1 to my name, and I had to spend it wisely, or suffer from doing without in the long run.

I voted for one Republican and the rest Democrat. I only hope that now, we the people, can finally start living with hope again!

I don't see why anyone would get riled up over your choice. After all, we are talking congresscritters. You know, politicians. The whole lot is fit to be shot.
Nov. 9th, 2006 05:22 am (UTC)
One things for sure
One things for sure, I'll never again make a Vote Republican banner again, for as long as I live! :o)
Nov. 7th, 2006 11:40 pm (UTC)
Congrats on voting!
Nov. 9th, 2006 06:22 am (UTC)
It feels good
Thanks! It feels good to vote and try to make a difference, huh? :o)

I agree with Ron in that bottom line, you vote and earn the right to complain. You don't vote and earn the right to keep your mouth shut! I voted at 20 till 6 this morning. I voted mostly Democrat.
Nov. 8th, 2006 12:15 am (UTC)
Nearly a straight Republican ticket for me, although I did have a few moments where I sat there shuddering after I did my thing ("Milquetoast" Mike Dewine, for example). Still, I did vote for one Dem, County Commissioner Jimmy Demora. He's pretty hard left, but he's also done a lot to help the county.
Nov. 9th, 2006 06:13 am (UTC)
I'm glad you took
I'm glad you took the time to vote. I read somewhere where Americans are the least of all other countries to vote!

I ended up voting for one Republican and the rest Democrats.

I now have just a tiny bit of hope that maybe the soldiers will be brought back, and my brother won't have to go in December!

I also forgot to add...
I would never hang you or drop you. What makes people beautiful is their differances. If we were the exact same where would the fun in conversation be? ;)
Nov. 8th, 2006 06:20 am (UTC)
Well said.
