    Card coaches a kids football team. The Titans play football. Same game, "Football"; one played at a higher level.

    how about this analogy:

    One is a compound fracture and the other is gangrene. but unfortunately, they are diagnosed on the same patient: us.

    How about they're both shit, and if you vote for either you are part of the problem?

    there is no third party sitting there as a reasonable option. sometimes not one at all. in our first past the post system, it only magnifies the influence of anyone "part of the problem" as you put it.

    first past the post means "part of the problem" people become more influential. it is the net effect.

    I could understand an argument that voting in federal elections, particularly presidential, is pretty much pointless.

    But not voting in your state and local elections is inexcusable.

    My first responsibility is to my conscience. If it means not voting for a D or R, or not voting at all, so be it

    Much like it can always be better, it can always get worse.

    Only because you keep voting for your same old ruling class.

    As evidenced by voting R or D for several generations has shown.

    I like this Question and Answer. The media is letting us down and not selling our agenda as much as w would like. She sounds surprised.

    And we like it. It is just we don't know that we like it. Dems knows whats best for us.

    Seems a subset of senators have decided to ask the AG to decriminalize marijuana, since they can't seem to get a bill together that will pass..

    How can the AG decriminalize a substance that has been made illegal by a law? I don't understand.

    I guess by saying nobody can prosecute it? That's basically what we're doing by allowing states to be legal anyway.
