I mean, really…
If Romney is somehow elected, prepare for a great 4 years in punk rock.
When there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna vote for?
Know your rights! Vote!
There are few rights more fundamental to a democracy than the right to vote. As Sarah Silverman charmingly tells us above, that right is under siege from folks who are whittling away at the voting pool with (among other tools) voter ID laws.
For a couple years I worked elections as a Field Election Deputy, supervising polling places in San Francisco. It was my main gig. I even counted votes in a huge underground warehouse under the Civic Center. I really care about making sure people have the right and opportunity to vote, and that their votes are counted fairly and accurately.
There are a lot of reforms that could help more people vote and help eliminate people’s (largely unfounded) worries about fraud. A national voter roll, rather than ad-hoc local registration system, for example. Or non-partisan officials in charge of elections. Or voting on weekends and extended voting hours. Or professionalization of polling places. But in the meantime, particularly in the absence of ANY real evidence of multiple-vote fraud (or any real incentive for anyone to commit it), voter ID laws are a great big pile of doo doo.
Of course, the folks who put these laws in place are usually elected, and often motivated by politics. But you still have the power to inform yourself and get to the polling place. So do it!
USA I’m sorry but if you let Romney get elected as President the rest of the world will have no choice but to break your section of the Earth off to float in space on its own until you come to your senses
Here’s a diagram to help you understand
Don’t forget: When anyone tells you that 47% of Americans “don’t pay taxes,” they’re only talking about Federal income tax. Anyone with a job pays 15.3% of their income as payroll taxes (Social Security & Medicare). People who live off investment income don’t.

QUESTION: I ran into my neighbor yesterday as I was taking party supplies into my house. And he said, “Are you having a barbeque?” I said, “Yes.” And he’s currently not invited, but now he knows that a barbeque is on. We have, on a microscale, we have diplomatic tensions.
SECRETARY CLINTON: Yeah, you do. You have a potential hot spot next door.
QUESTION: We have a hostile neighbor. And we have a shared wall, too.
SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, the path of least resistance is to invite him.
QUESTION: He’s not a good mix. He’s not a good match.
SECRETARY CLINTON: Not a good match.
QUESTION: We sort of — I don’t want to call him a rogue dissident, but —
SECRETARY CLINTON: How about this — yeah, well, why don’t you take him over some barbeque?
QUESTION: And that’s why you are the Secretary of State of the United States of America.
