    Personally I do not care what party you are from. If you're an American and of voting age, you need to get your heinnie out and vote this November.

    Voting -- or not voting -- is not a simple issue. I will vote, as I always have, but I'm not sure I will vote for any candidate (I will vote on the constitutional referenda and bond issues). No candidate who is running in my area fully expresses my positions on the issues. Therefore it is reasonable to cast a blank ballot as a form of protest. In any case the election in the 11th District of Virginia is noncompetitive.

    There are only a handful of places in America where your vote makes a bit of difference. In most places the incumbents will cruise to victory.

    If you can't find someone to vote FOR, do some digging and find one to vote AGAINST!

    The lesser of two evils may not be a great choice, but it beats the hell out of the GREATER of two evils.
