Got to talking with some co-workers about the upcoming election.

Along the way, one of the girls in the office says that she cant wait to vote in the election. Its going to be the first one she is going to vote in.

Good for her!

Then she says that she is voting for Hillary.

I scoff and ask why she is going to throw away a perfectly good vote....

She says and I quote 'Because it would be COOL to have a woman President!'.

That got a 'WTF? Cool??!!! You're going to vote for her just because she is a woman?!?'

Yup, that's it... she is going to vote not on stance or what they could do for us... but because she is a woman.

I had to walk away at this point.

Damn, can I get outta this handbasket? It's starting to get hot here.

How about her idea to give every baby born after she becomes president a $5000 Gov't bond?? Ummm... here's my questions:
1) Why should I be giving some kid I don't know any money? How
3) What about giving that money to teachers, police officers, and emergency medical service personnel since they obviously make too much money?? (Lots of sarcasm in this one.) h

M'kay enough of this for a while...

On the flip side I know a lot of women who won't vote for her b/c she is Hillary Clinton. I honestly don't think the gender issue will make that big of a difference.
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 10:15:59 AM EST
I have heard the same thing. People vote for what they think is "cool" all the time, why do you think Hollywood even has an effect on the election, because idiots like your co-worker believe what that POS Hilton girl tells them to believe. (bad example but you know what I mean)
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 10:16:07 AM EST
Most voters are single-issue voters. What's the difference between voting for someone because she's a woman, or because she's for the death penalty, or for some other reason? There is not now, nor has there ever been, an "ideal" candidate. The mission, friends, is to illuminate the rest of the voting public about the important issues, and get them to shift their priorities to a more important issue.

But there will always be those who will vote for a certain candidate for the wrong reason.

When algore was running one of the women at my place of employment said" I'm not going to vote for algore because he doesn't have the charisma that clinton has" That got a big WTF. Women voting with their privates o sad.

Ask her what she'd do if her husband (if she's got one) was having an affair w/ another woman? If she says leave his ass, then ask your co-worker why she supports some douchbag that did that to her?? Seems like there's never going to be any good presidents anymore... too many are corupt or have their own agendas. Oh well, guess we'll have to do the best w/ what we've got.

My GF and I were talking about the elections the other day and she told me she was voting for Hitlery. I proceeded to tell that if I found out she did that I would immediately hit the eject button and move back into my house. She did laugh and say she was messing with me, but I told her I wasn't.

Yup.

At this point I'm just tired.

VERY tired.

Why not just let the liberal idiots of this country have what they want at this point? I might be willing to take a ride on this white water raft just to see a bunch of them fall out of the boat and get dunked.

I feel the apathy in me growing. Why should I care about a country full of morons?

I now embrace my new overlords.

***DISCLAIMER***
The above was tongue-in-cheek, but holds a taste of the truth. I really am tired and find myself straining to care anymore. Were it not for my responsibility to my kids... I'd probably be forever numb at this point. In fact, I'd probably be laughing at the absurdity of it all. Kind of like Tom Hanks in "The Money Pit" when the tub falls through the floor. Kind of like the Denver Broncos miserable 41-3 loss at Invesco on Sunday...

I'm a white, Christian conservative. I am automatically racist and sexist. According to libs anyways. But I'd vote for someone like Condi Rice in a second. That's the proof that I am neither of those things. But libs will vote for her just because she is a woman. They are without substance.

I would not vote for Hillary at gun point.

My wife has traditionally voted Democrat (i.e. before us) but she absolutely can't stand Hitlary and I had nothing to do with it. Of course she does have a few brain cells and knows how to think for herself, which is more than I can say for the OP's coworker

sure they can. And people can vote FOR someone because they want to.

Go rent & watch this wonderful movie called, "IDIOCRACY" and you'll see what the future looks like!

Probably the MOST ACCURATE movie I've ever seen regarding the future of America!!!


Thanks for the tip, I haven't seen it yet. Another one to watch is Demolition Man. Lots of relevant stuff for today in that flick.

On topic......it's too bad that today, the fewer people that vote the better for the country. I cringe when I seen all the "get out the vote" stuff. They just cancell my vote and thousands of others and are not all that informed re the big picture..

I agree with Daisy....goes both ways...
