It’s that time of year (every 4 years) again, so go do your civic duty as gamer’s and go vote in the general election.
29 states have early voting, so you may already be able to vote!
Wouldn’t it be better use of time to play a video game, read a book, watch a movie, call your Senator/Congressman, find a Wii U demo station…considering there is only one major choice? o_0
Ah well for me, I live two blocks from my voting station and we do early voting here in Florida. I can hit up the booth before work on Monday and be set. Then I can get back to reading a book on slavery (for my college American History class) and play some games. I already found a Wii U demo station, so I’ll cross that off my list =D.
We have early voting here as well, kind of funny, Mrs. Coffee went to the library just to get some books…and basically got mugged in the parking lot by the early voting people. She was like, “Just getting some books…not voting today, kthanksbye.” BUT, they still spammed her with pamphlets and literature…or, propaganda as I would call it.
You left out calling your Senator/Congressman, and if you haven’t done that, it’s probably better to do that than vote…especially when there is only one choice from what I can tell. Just saying…. 🙂
Yeah, we have received so many political phone calls. It’s like, “c’mon, we already know who we’re voting for!” – quit calling!
No, I haven’t called my Senator/Congressman. You have mentioned twice now that there is only one choice from what you can tell. Well, to every individual there is only choice (at least, that’s the way I see it.) No one candidate ever provides all that we need or want – I just want a change. As a Catholic, I really am disheartened by ‘ObamaCare’ and what it means in regards to religious freedom. Not that I’m saying who I’m voting for =D.
Oh, and I still want to find some time to go and play video games. Perhaps the Wii U? Actually there are 3 ‘big’ things goings on this month. The election. My 7 year wedding anniversary the week after that and then the Wii U the week after that. So I’ll vote, celebrate, and then play!
OHHHHH CIVIL POLITICAL DISCUSSION!
“I just want a change.”
Well, I sure hope you aren’t voting for Romney then. The guy gave us the ObamaCare model, is on record saying his model in Massachusetts would be good for the nation, and hasn’t produced a balanced budget plan for his first term (or second, the numbers don’t add up), and his only political consistency is political inconsistency. If you want a guy that admits he is lying to you though, and will promise you anything just to get your vote…oh, and he wants every American to have a pony, look to Vermin Supreme.
As for “religious freedom”, are you familiar with the 501c3 issue with most “churches”? It’s an interesting topic…
“Actually there are 3 ‘big’ things goings on this month. Calling my Senator/Congress person. My 7 year wedding anniversary the week after that and then the Wii U the week after that. So I’ll vote, celebrate, and then play!”
Fixed that for you. 😉 Early congrats on the 7 year wedding anniversary though, we hit 8 years earlier this year! As for the Wii U, is that in your plans to get?
Wow. Vermin Supreme wants me to have a pony. This guys is the bees knees. Ha ha!
I’m (very) vaguely familiar with 501c3 and don’t have time to read up on it right now – can you offer more insight as to what you think is relevant regarding the 501c3.
Alright, so you ‘fixed’ the wording in my sentence. You keep focusing on calling my Senator or Congressperson. What exactly should I be calling them for? Are you suggesting I don’t vote?
Congrats on hitting 8 years! As for the Wii U – nah, I can’t afford it – but it will be cool to follow the coverage and watch all the Youtube videos of gameplay and unboxings. I shall live vicariously through the exploits of all the other Wii U owners =D!
“I’m (very) vaguely familiar with 501c3 and don’t have time to read up on it right now – can you offer more insight as to what you think is relevant regarding the 501c3.”
It’s where churches, Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, etc., sign the IRS forms to be 501c3 organizations so that all their “tithes” received are tax exempt. BUT, in so doing there is a clause that is supposed to prevent political speech from such organizations. So, they get this “tax exempt” status, while giving up a certain “free speech”…something about a love of money stands out to me there.
As for calling your Congressperson and Senator, if you’re concerned about ObamaCare that would be one thing to call them about…every single day/week/month at the very least. The national debt I would imagine to be another.
“Are you suggesting I don’t vote?”
Not for Obamney. I don’t see anything different between them honestly, other than one has a “D” and one has an “R” in front of their names. Maybe I’m missing the big difference?
There are usually local elections to vote in though, and there may be a Congress/Senate seat up for grabs, a local judge, Sheriff, commissioners.
I need to find my new voting place, as they moved us since our last election.
