I've heard that before but I don't agree.

Well that saying makes a nice bumper sticker, but it's just as unanarchist to work for capitalists or buy material goods then. You should be able to separate your ideological whims from your pragmatic options to solve what problems are solvzble thru bourgeois elections. And in some cases voting democrat is the best way to to that. :s

Just looked up the absentee ballot process for my state and fuck that.

Mailin' shit in and gettin' shit back and then mailin' it back in again? That is awful. Why can't I just send 'Barak Obamaz' written in neon crayon on a napkin to someone or sumthin'?

When the revolution comes I'm gonna smash this state SO hard.

My state (or at least county) only does mail-in, although my mom says you can also drop it off at the courthouse if you want. but you have to pay for your own postage and everything, which seems like a poll tax to me.

I think if you're not physically walking into a booth and pulling a lever and getting a sticker afterwards, you're missing out on a big part of the experience.

My best option for senate:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...5c53_story.html

He's no Basil Marceaux.

I would vote if I didn't have to go out of my way. But, like, it's srsly so absurdly futile. Guess voting is for people who enjoy voting/aren't rationally fatalistic.

There's this cat running for congress in my district named Art Robinson.

He's your standard republican in that he thinks giving 1 cent to a person in need is liberty-ending socialism and that every poor person is poor because they don't work hard. Nothing surprising.

He's a chemist and he brags abuot working with the great Linus Pauling. He even brags about being on a science commitee that exists to refute global warming. Whatevs. Conservatives worship the economy and hate anything that can compromise profits. No surprises.

What he doesn't brag about is that he thinks low doses of radiation are good for you. Like in the sense that just shoving some nuclear waste in your drywall is good for you. You have to dilute it first but still.

The rest of his politics are equally insane but the fact that everyone around here is for him is scary.
