#1 Early voting tomorrow. Also working the polls.
Remember to vote R for senate and house!
It is amazing what can be accomplished with a non-communist in the White House.

#2 For the second election in a row I shall vote party line -- Republicans all the way down. Normally I consider such unthinking behqviour immoral, but right now it seems to me the issue is that quantity has a quality all its own. Hopefully next time I'll feel comfortable looking at individuals again.

#3 Don't feel bad, tw. I never vote Democrat. If there happens to be a Republican candidate for some office who is completely hopeless, I'll throw my vote away on some random third party candidate. I don't always agree with Republicans but I never agree with Democrats.
I always vote after I get home from work on election day. By that time in California the election is all but over and the TV pundits are already calling it for one candidate or the other. That's what happened in 2000. They were already calling it for Al Gore before I even got to vote. But I voted anyway. Maybe this time they'll be a little more careful but I doubt it. If they think they can discourage people like me they probably will.

#4 Only voted for a Demonrat once in a national election. Big mistake in '76.
Voted for a couple of Dems. in state elections but they were down ticket.
Other than that I've pretty much held my nose and gone straight R. But then I live in Mass so the choices ain't much to talk about.
Re the current regime? "None dare call it treason".

#6 John Leo wrote a collection of essays named "two steps ahead of the thought police". A paragraph I remember, because it fits me, says ... "I used to be called a liberal and now I am called a conservative, and I haven't changed" .
