Scary Politics

So on Sunday night I sat down with a group of other guys and we all chatted about the state of politics for a good solid 2 hours or more. It was quite fun, although some of us disagreed on who the best candidate or merits of another individual were, everyone was respectful and I think overall it was a productive conversation.

In the coming weeks I will be discussing politics (specifically the presidential primaries) a bit on my blog, as I have always been active in politics. I feel that if you don't vote you aren't actively involved in your government, and as such can't complain when things don't go the way you want them to.

But before I spend the next few weeks discussing politics off an on, I wanted to share with you a scary video that I just watched. Remember in 2004 the whole "One Person, One Vote" movement/scandal? Well in Texas apparently one person gets 2, 3, or even 4 votes if they are fast enough. This rocked my world and makes me wonder if this occurs in Washington States congress chambers.

gee, they were hired to show up and vote, but they dont. If the Wa legislature does this, i'd be really pissed.

I liked the lady complaining about not getting bathroom breaks. Hey, she signed up for the job.

And if state house/senate are ran like the US, they have like 20 minutes to vote each issue, plenty of time to go take a leak or have an intern order ya some lunch.

fire 'em all, i say.
