Smile Patriotic Duty

Without giving away my political beliefs, (the fact that I live to the right of Rush Limbaugh). I have had so much anxiety over this election that tons of Tagamet simply could not quell what has been churned internally over the last six months circus show. Vote your heart, but vote. It is our only active position to maintain "by the people".

I absolutely fear for the world my children will live in!

I will vote on Tuesday.

My registration for voting was completed waaaay back during the primary season in which I voted.

Along with the forest worth of extra large political post cards I receieved this week two pieces of mail stood out.

They both said the same thing, one more bluntly, one less so.

The first listed off my "voting history" AND THAT OF MY NEIGHBORS, for the last several elections. The list claimed that it was also sent out to my neighbors and that they now "know" that I had not voted in the past few elections.

Clearly this is an attempt to shame me to vote on Tuesday.

First, let me divulge that I have voted in EVERY election since becoming eligible at age eighteen.

The #%€£%#'s that sent this out ASSUMED I was a resident and therefore a registered voter in the state of NH. I lived in another state.

I believe everyone who HAS the LEGAL right to vote should educate themselves on the issues and vote based on their best judgement.

But...it does not upset me if someone doesn't vote because they haven't come to an informed opinion of who deserves their vote.

So now I need to deal with the "shame" of my neighbors believing that I am a no show at the polls. As horrific as that seems, it gets worse!

The second mailer dealing with this was in the form of a report card. While a report card is something I have not received in decades, mine were generally excellent.

My "voting" report card rated me "very poor".

Of course this is inaccurate.

Here's my real (self tabulated) voting report card:

Attendance: PERFECT

Choices: A- (A deduction for my vote wasted on John Anderson)

Now I have to cope with the damage to my self esteem that the "very poor" rating has caused!



BUT WAIT A MINUTE!!!

Until these mailings arrived I was unaware that an individual's voting history is redily available. Apparently, it is. I wonder how much voter fraud occurs in using this information in states where proper I.D. is not required to cast a vote.

Consider this:

John Doe has a similarly "very poor" voting report card. Having not voted in the last three elections, he is likely to not vote in this one. To cast a vote in his name, a perpetrator would need only to show up, claim to be John Doe and claim to live at John Doe's address. That is an address that is also known by the issuers of my "report card". In the rare case that John Doe shows up to vote, he is told "sorry, no double voting" and is sent away.

Professer Avrich, of Accounting 101 fame started the first day of his class with this statement:

"Figures don't lie, but liars can figure."

It's going to get interesting folks!

I want to thank everyone for not posting too much politics on this travel & tourism site. If only I could convince my Facebook friends to do the same! There were a few threads but mostly when a candidate visited the area. Not too bad.

To close out this election I'm curious how our site members and visitors are voting. Please take this unscientific and mostly meaningless poll:

survey services

I'm pleased to hear that all the other campaign info you've received has been the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

You don't have to worry about your John Doe double voting. He's dead.

Hold on Pineedles --- when I cast my vote the margin had dropped to only 63% ..... the silent MAJORITY seems to be balancing the table !!

Isn't it ironic that when the National Do Not Call Registry was created that the politicians had the foresight to exclude political organizations, not-for-profit organizations and those conducting surveys to name a few.

I have received more unwanted phone calls on my cell phone over the last couple of months....

I'm a registered Republican but have basically become an Independent after seeing how spineless the GOP has been over the last 8 years. They lost my confidence, if there was any. Trump is not a Republican, just like Bernie isn't a Democrat. They're just the parties they ran under. I am disgusted with Washington DC and I want to see it get ripped a new one. Trump was not my first pick (close second) but he is now! He was just here in Raleigh today. This election has been quite a ride and I'm looking forward to it ending. I'm hoping my beloved NH comes through with the RIGHT choice.

Mitt Romney, 3/12/47, is about seven months older than Hillary, 10/26/47, and about nine months younger than Donald, 6/14/46. If Mitt had run this year, it sure seems like he would have won it in a landslide.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...n-a-landslide/

and ........ a little drum roll here ...... and Mitt would have ...... ratta-tat-tat ..... brang....... eh.......make that ......brought...... the summer White House to Wolfeboro.

Instead, it may be eight years with President Hillary-45, from January 20, 2017 to January 20, 2025, when she will be age-77 ...... oh well!

!
Mitt would have won 4 years ago if he had run a real campaign instead of the wishy washy mess he tossed out there. It felt that he really did not want to win but since it was "his turn" he took it. Pitiful bunch the White shoe Republican establishment types are. Pray that Trump takes it and may I suggest that all Dems vote for Jill Stein if you need to have a woman president.

So, who will former president George W Bush-43 be voting for, today? That's a good question......... who, who, who is George voting today?

Who knows ..... but maybe, just like Kelly Ayotte .... he may write in Mike Pence?

I think if Hillary ran against any other republican , the republican would have won in a landslide and if Trump had run against any other Democrat, the Democrat would have won in a landslide just because I feel most people are just voting the lesser of 2 evils here.

Frankly, IMHO, with almost 330 million people in this country, I'm disgusted that these two clowns are the best we could come up with!

It really is a "hold you nose" and vote election. SIGH..

I'm not so sure I agree with you. But I do believe that people need to pay better attention to the actions of their elected officials. Many of these clowns say one thing to get elected and do the complete opposite once elected. Wiki leaks highlighted this for Hillary, but honestly, most of this is out there in the public domain without resorting to stealing emails from campaigns. You just need to pay attention and look. When I see a news report about a candidate that piques my interest, I look for video of the original statement or I'll try to read the actual document that is causing the sensation and find out what the subject actually did or said. These politicians, on both sides, feel they are untouchable because so many people rely on soundbites and entertainment shows for info instead of researching what concerns them. People also vote on promises rather than results. While you need to rely on promises for a first time candidate, after that the voters need to hold them to their promises by critically looking at the results of the candidates term. If the results don't match the intentions, throw them out, too much is at stake.


I think the news programs and papers have seriously hurt themselves this election cycle by trying to excessively influence this election rather than diligently just reporting what is going on, hopefully they will pay dearly by people just ignoring them, not buying news papers that do this and turning off the news programs that are biased. We shall see.

One of the biggest problems facing voters in this day and age is the lack of unbiased news reporting. Radio, TV, papers, and magazines are, fit the most part biased toward one side of the aisle or the other. Couple that with "endorsements" from celebrities that I guess is supposed to instruct us on whom we are too vote. Give me the facts, let the candidates tell us what they stand for and what they will do if elected, and let the electorate make their own decisions.

If Trump win's I fear It will be Hell in certain city's, fires, riots and anything else you can Imagine. I also think that Trump will have attempts on his life for sure. There is no wasted vote if you vote your conscience. Look at the poor republicans in Mass, If that's not a reason for individual voting (not by state) I don't know what would be.

From today's Howie Carr radio show.......Howie mentioned that former president George W Bush-43 left his vote ballot choice for president blank, voting for no one.

Ditto that for Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker (R) who also blanked his ballot for president......according to Howie Carr.

I was very surprised by their personal choices to vote "no one" which seems highly unusual.

I was very pleased to cast my vote for Hillary, and am totally confident she will go on to become the greatest president in the history of the USA...... go Hillary go!

We have been traveling across "America the Beautiful" visiting our most amazing National Parks. When I stood below the incredible Mount Rushmore and the history behind this significant monument I could not help but reflect what we have for our politicians and candidates today. I could not see any of them standing up to the leadership of that time in our great history.

At Mount Rushmore you will see George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. How did we ever get to where we are today? So sad. But only hope is for God to Bless America and to provide the loving grace and guiding light to bring guidance to the NEW President of United States of America.

The campaigns of the early presidents were rough, possibly rougher than this cycle. We remember them by their accomplishments while in office, not how they got there.

Looks like the Trump train just rolled up a big huge win, and shook the world.....good grief! .....big surprise!.......holy smokes! ....... oh well .......that's the way the banana peels or something!

Here in NH.....the numbers just were on the CNN-tv with Hillary up by 47.7% to 47.2%....... 87% vote in ........so's maybe NH will still go with Hillary and she will win the NH battle, while losing the war to the Donald.

It's all over ..... the fat lady has sung!

It started out great and was aimed at getting those that frequent the site and lake out to vote. It didn't hurt..

The results of the election will most definitely affect us all in one way or another, some more than others. You're probably right, this thread ran its course...but overall I thought for the most part everyone stayed well behaved.

Looks like Trump may actually have had a "coat tails" effect here in New Hampshire. How to quantify that? Well ...... the tall.....5'10" ..... very attractive....and very athletic.... very well spoken.....very knowlegeable....Senator Kelly Ayotte just barely, by a tiny number got beat by Gov Maggie Hassan....while Chris Sununu beat Colin Van Ostern by a couple percentage points

Kelly Ayotte's presence will definitely be missed in the US Senate.....especially by all the fellow Republican male senators........ she was very well liked......so, goooood-bye Kelly........ and boo-hoo! Did I vote for Kelly......no? I voted for Maggie Hassan.....but it's a big stunner that Kelly is out.....which did not happen until all the votes were counted the day after.

Sen Ayotte had announced she would be writing in Mike Pence, while Chris Sununu stuck with the Donald......and that is somewhat telling for the Trump coat tails effect here in NH.

Such is so.

I'd hear words from a speech, then read or hear a "journalist's" account. If there wasn't a difference between the two, the inflection changed it entirely.

Thank the Internet (and especially, social media) for the outcome on Wednesday.

Congrats on at least, getting your senate candidate in...Kelly Ayotte showed her true colors when she scrambled to distance herself (to save her own seat) from Trump after the "locker room" tape. Bad move on her part...

I liked Kelly, but I didn't like her politics, she was caught up in this middle of the road, get along horse manure and I think it cost her the election. At least you know what you are getting with Hassan, hopefully she will only last one term.

Or how about the aggressive demonstrations (politically correct for rioting) going on in many cities. Remember all those conservatives rioting when Obama took office...me neither.

Can you imagine if Republicans had hung Hillary like this? The media frenzy would be so loud and it would have created rioting for sure. I'll bet most of these people protesting didn't even vote. Which party is the intolerant one? Its very clear.

Default Predictable

I am not surprised by the riots and public displays of disrespect. I've read many, many articles saying how liberals are "terrified" and "disgusted" by the election results. Safe spaces and counseling provided for students at college! Are you kidding me? Well, as a conservative, don't think for a second that I wasn't equally "disgusted" and "terrified" by Obama's election. I was worried about respect for the Constitution, the status of our standing in the world, foreign policy, maintaining our military, socialized medicine, to name a few. (Most of my worries came to fruition.) However, I'm an adult, and I need to work for a living. I don't have the luxury of protesting when I don't get my own way. Also, I respect our Constitution and the electoral process, even when it doesn't go my way. We are teaching our children to be petulant when they don't get their own way. This needs to change.

Kelly Ayotte's presence will definitely be missed in the US Senate.....especially by all the fellow Republican male senators........ she was very well liked......so, goooood-bye Kelly........ and boo-hoo! Did I vote for Kelly......no? I voted for Maggie Hassan.....but it's a big stunner that Kelly is out.....which did not happen until all the votes were counted the day after.

Sen Ayotte had announced she would be writing in Mike Pence, while Chris Sununu stuck with the Donald......and that is somewhat telling for the Trump coat tails effect here in NH.
The DNC stole Bernie's drubbing of Hillary in the primary then poured millions into NH to oust Kelly and we gave them exactly what they wanted. It's a disgrace that we threw out an honest, Independent, fiscal conservative. NH is all done as an independent state.

Which party's supporters are massively intolerant? Grossly immature? Prone to violence and destruction? It doesn't require a doctorate to figure that out.

Default "progressives"

Are always tolerant when you agree with them but when you don't? Not so much. Is that "progressive"?

No it's hypocrisy. But hypocrites exist on both sides. They just have different labels.

Trump's first executive order will be that everyone in his cabinet dye their hair orange.

This seems like a good time to close this thread and move on from the election, at least on this forum. Thanks everybody.
