Let's hear who voted, what for, what against, whaddaya like, whaddaya hear what didn't you like.



For me:
I voted pretty much Green Party and Peace and Freedom. I wanted to vote socialist workers but it took too much effort to write-in cantidates using the voting machine I used.

I voted against kids having to get parental consent for abortions since it's hard enough for kids to have to go through something like that, why make it harder for them. If they wanted their parents to know, they'd tell them.

I voted yes on an education bond but no on most others.

Finally, I voted Yes to tax people who smoke cigarettes $2.60 more a pack. Originally I was going to vote no because I figured if they can tax one undesireable group, what prevents them from taxing another that I may be a part of. But last night while walking through the parking lot at a local mall, I counted close to 50 cigarette butts on the ground, so then I figured, those ****s deserve a nice little tax increase.



How'd everyone else fare?

the tax on packs of smokes here is getting really high too.

unfortunately, when you look at a lot of people that smoke, its students and less well off adults.. (their vice I guess) so it's a bummer that they are getting taxed more.. but I mean, it's can incentive to quit. And here with our public health care, it makes sense to tax the **** outta them cuz if they get cancer, its on our tab to help them.

As well as raising taxes on smokes, most cities have banned smoking in public places. So, it's really pressuring people to stop.

Some people thing its a problem of rights, that people have the right to smoke.. but people also have the right to clean air. Meh.

I could have done the whole absentee ballot thing since I'm away at school, but I just said **** it and I'll wait for the next one in two years. I haven't really been following this election and candidates anyway, so I'm probably better off not voting. :)

So you wouldn't have a problem with a 40 year old guy shoving a tube up your 16 year old daughter's ****** without your consent?

If she didn't think she could come to me to talk about something like that, I'd be more worried about other things than a doctor getting that parasite out of her. Wouldn't you?


Come on kiddies, there's got to be some other blok out there that voted today. Hell, I'm anti-yanqui and I still voted.

as long as that '40 year old guy shoving a tube in [my] 16 year old daugher's ******' was a certified doctor.. then no i wouldnt have any problem. Which, if it's legal, she'll have access too. However, if it's illegal and she needs to find an outside sketchy source.. well I think you get my point.

No, my primary concern would be her well being, and I wouldn't want some stranger performing a medical procedure on her without my permission (assuming I was okay with abortions).

I'm gonna agree with Smalls here.
