Random results thoughts – (these are based on my observations not statistical calculations)

  • Across the nation, most proposal results seemed lean towards pro-choice.
  • Also across the nation, most proposal results seemed to be against any gay/lesbian/non-traditional family units. Even at the cost of allowing children to not be adopted.
  • The medical marijuana use proposals seems to have passed in most places (all?).
  • We still don’t have results for North Carolina (only 14,000 difference in the votes). Although this still won’t make a difference in the end.

    I still don’t think you should be able to vote straight ticket on your ballot. If you really want that, then fill in all those circles by hand. You only vote a few times per year people!

    I also still think the electoral college is weird and electoral votes should be based on the what the people of the state voted not what the winners party. Or just ditch it and have the whole thing based on popular vote. I understand there are reasons not to base it on popular vote, but…

    Final part – The president I voted for won and so did the proposals I picked, I don’t know if that’s happened to me before (but Michigan didn’t have many proposals this year).

    I voted today. I walked up there in the wonderful weather we had. There was no line to speak of.

    But there were no stickers. My precinct said they received no stickers.

    It might seem silly but people were really bummed that they didn’t get a sticker…

    Hey! I just thought of a great new use for the Internet! We could use it to remind people about important things like voting!

    So don’t forget to vote!

    See, isn’t that great idea? (I’m glad I thought of it first)

    Thisisindexed-Card1882-380X228I usually enjoy Indexed, a site where Jessica creates simple Venn diagrams or graphs that are humorous and/or have double meanings.

    Today’s was funny so I thought it was a good time to add them to my From My Feed Reader list (while slightly sticking to my list my political sites first theme).

    She’s also released a book called Indexed with new “cards” and best of material in it.

    Don’t watch this video! Lots of stars in it (telling you what not to do).

    I thought it was a fun video, but it gets a little long at the end. Watch at least the first 90 seconds and pass it on to a few (5) friends.

    And don’t forget to register! Depending on where you live you have to do it in the next few days…

    I spotted this video over at Eclecticism + It’s like I’m Magic and thought I’d pass it along…

    I can’t wait until the election is over and everyone stops complaining (I mean blogging) about the campaign and we can tall about other stuff in life…

    And I don’t mean the voting process / recall process / etc.
