NH Primary
« on: February 09, 2016, 06:14:39 PM »
Not making any kind of political statements here except it is crazy in NH today.  I'm going to vote later then go home and have myself a "good job" beer :)

We expect a huge turn out in my town, since we just had a big to do with the local gov't cutting police, fire, and services causing the citizens to sue the town council (upheld by the state courts) and held a special election to restore funding to vital services.  Everyone is still in get-involved mode, which is great.

When your primary comes around, get out and vote.  But only if you want to...that too is your right.

Here in Iowa we all basking in the glow of commercials on radio, TV, billboards, yard signs, cats, dogs, small children, not so small children and anywhere else you might imagine for something other than politicians.    ;D

Glad the caucuses are done and you can all be happy you didn't have to live through the run up.

Turned into? Are you referring to the Hamilton -Burr duel?

It may not be this time. Both parties may still be looking for the apparent winner by the end of primary season.

True, it was this way back in 2008 for the Dems. At least the field will be smaller.

I have a feeling that by the time us westerners get to vote we'll need to reverse that process.

Quietest election year in a long time at my house.  We dropped our land line in 2015.  No politicians, no telemarketers or any of that.  Silence is golden and ductape is still silver.

Yes, tonight we too are basking in the silent stillness of the lack of the phone ringing off the hook every five minutes.
