Yeah well, it's not like polls ever changed anything. They just provide information, at least you know how the poll respondents thought about it.
I didn't think it would make you care.  :)


Assuming I can find the old one, I may just switch back or try something even newer.

You didn't ask that when he bought the Indian?

He's becoming a kinder more caring Jim, so he sought an avatar to soften his image. He thought posing with a pet dragon would do it, but upon closer inspection it turns out to be a slain dragon, and a not very mature one at that.  So he's still looking. He just didn't realize how good the other one was I guess. Sometimes we don't appreciate that which is right in front of us. I tell my wife that all the time.

It looks more like the medieval version of posing with your clubbed baby harp seal.

Voting for the lesser of two evils gets you exactly what you voted for. Evil. It solves nothing and exacerbates the problem.
And you all (mostly) have fallen for the two party sytem, in the belief you must vote for one of two parties. You shouldnt be goting for a plitical party.
And a vote for someone else is not a wasted vote. The problem is so many are so brainwashed into this belief they will never vote for anything other than d or r. And as long as people do this the quality of candidates will never change. Your voting for them no matter how many promises they break-and the gop is best at that-tells them to continue screwing us.

I agree with what you are saying in principle, but not in practice.  You are not going to convince millions of people to do the same- to take a risk voting for a "third party" or independent.... especially in major/large elections.  "Everyone" knows/believes it is "throwing a vote away" (which means it really is), so they vote against someone instead of for someone.  Fixing it by changing the system to a ranked voting system is difficult.  But trying to "fix" it by changing people- well, I expect that is a zillion times harder.

We used to have a comedy series over here called "Yes Minister" (followed by "Yes Prime Minister" ) the basis of which is that it doesn't matter "who" is in "power" because it's the "career buearacrats" that are really in charge :)

You do realize that the lesser of the two evils being referenced is Trump right?

Who says Trump is evil?
So far he has proven to be the opposite. And the evil of both political  parties has come out. More proof voting for a political party has never worked and never will.
The reason things dont change  is because voters refuse to change. They still think doing the same thing will get a different result.

Wasnt it Washington who said never vote for a political party because the politicians will work for the party and  not the people?
Who says the Founders were not far sighted?

I never said Trump was evil. I said voting for the lesser of two was still evil.
Stop twisting words like the  media does..
Conrad, you cant explain what I said because you dont have a clue of the premise.

That's VERY true, I don't have a clue and I'm pretty sure that no one else does either.
