This is a response to Vol 16 Paul 19 ("Dan Quayle")...
Those HAD to be taken out of context! Weren't they?
For the first time ever, I registered to vote and actually marked a ballot sheet. California had many environmental propositions put to the populace this month. I decided I should at least attempt to put my two cents in.
After reading the propositions and the arguments pro and con, I knew 90% would be voted down (they were). The writers for the propositions were writing for 12th grade comprehension. About 99% of the voting population simply did not understand and neither did some of the politicians/experts giving the pros and cons! I did not vote for a single office, as none of the candidates looked reasonable.
I still believe the whole voting system is a hoax. I won't be doing it again!
