Huh? A person's vote shouldn't count if they believe in something? Shouldn't every voter believe in something? If we threw votes out because of beliefs, would there be any votes left?WKL815 said:I've experienced a few remarks in this forum and elsewhere that a person's vote shouldn't count if it's because it's based on this or that belief.
What are your thoughts when you hear this type of statement?
Guilty of what? This entire thread has me lost. First there's talk of not allowing some votes because of people's beliefs, now you're feeling guilty. Did I start smoking crack and just forget?vauge said:ok, have to ask... am I guilty?
I'm sorry I don't care what your reason for voting one way or another was or is, Your vote shoud count period. I also think, and I believe I posted this on here somewhere, that the election is over, Bush won. The Left needs to start doing something productive and stop trying to re-loose the election. It's over- get over it.vauge said:Ahh... that topic was split - that could cause some confusion. For the life of me I cannot remember which topic it was from. That thread was split because it had some good insite to seperation of church and state.
He was refering to the election cycle - he was saying (I may be wrong) that if Bush was won because people voted against the gay marriage proposals or religious reasons that would be unreasonable. He believes there are far worse issues facing the nation.
I know people who do this every year. Here in Oregon we have a lot of retired "snowbirds" who have duel residency. In Oregon and usually some place like Arizona. I got one neighbor brags about it every chance he gets. You'll be happy to know he almost always votes GOP.vauge said:Your vote shouldn't count if you've already voted in another state.
