Re: Don't Vote...

I dont even know if I'm registered to vote...besides, I have a paper that isn't going to write itself

Re: Don't Vote...

You can actually check your status online.  www.voteforchange.com is a very simple site that will tell you if you're registered, and if not, whether you still can (some states have same-day registration so you can register the same day that you vote).  It was set up by the Obama campaign, so it's branded that way, but anyone is free to use it.

Re: Don't Vote...

 I'm not voting, my state is a repulican state, they vote repulican every election, no candidates EVER come here to do speeches, we aren't a sway state, they KNOW they have our electorals, why should I vote when it won't matter?

Re: Don't Vote...

i don't care, so i'm not voting :) either way its one more idiot running the country that has few worthy points to work with and isn't more than a figure head either way, he can only urge one way or the other, after the governments in though the peoples say goes out the door on anything that was "promised" during the election term.

the government votes itself in anyways, we merely vote locally, beyond that its all electoral college voting government into government.

Re: Don't Vote...

Apathy of the citizens is what keeps giving the government more bureaucratic power.

Re: Don't Vote...

 IF you don't vote, make sure you do it VOCALLY!! Protest in the streets. Rally outside the polls. Make sure people know it's wrong!

Seriously, to everyone: Research, then vote! Make sure you know all the options and what will happen for each. Tired of McCain and Obama? Remember: There are still other candidates out there. Write in a protest if you have to, but make sure your voice is heard!

Re: Don't Vote...

I protest the fact that these 2 idiots are the only options we have, since the media didn't follow the other guys at all, even though at least one of them may actually be a better canidate than both of them...  but when statistics are massively against you, you have one option, vote with the remainder. 

We have 2 idiots to choose from, which idiot do you want.  I just know I don't want the idiot that picked a lady that thinks Earth is 6,000 years old, and I rather have the guy that hired over a dozen nobel prize winners to advise him on matters of climate change, medical stuff, and so on. (I wonder if he learned was most scientist know, over 95% of climate change is due to cycles that the sun goes through, and the remaining less than 5% isn't all human either. [I go along with the BS though since I think solar panels and other green technology are a no crap items that cost less in the long run, but that is me.])

If the media would advertise the 3rd guy, or he would have raised enough funds, then this could be one hell of an election where a 3rd party shows they could take power soon, but it didn't happen this year.  I give it 12 years until a third party will either come close or be in the white house if the current parties don't go through massive change over the next 12 years.

Re: Don't Vote...

In Canada, we have 2 major parties (Liberal and Conservitives) and 2 smaller parties (NDP, Bloc Québécois) and then we have something called Independent which is the really really small parties like the Green Party. We give a fair mount of screen time to the smaller parties too, but it doesn't really make much of a difference.

Green party was able to be part of the major debates, but they only ended up with zero seats (out of 308). Huge amount of people hate both Stephen Harper and Stephane Dion, yet they have the most seats.

Media doesn't matter, people are just voting the party they were loyal to years before.

I'm with you on that...  not.

Infophile(cont'd) about non-union police officers being given hell until they joined the union.07/07/2015 - 4:58pm
InfophileParadoxically, the drive in the US to get rid of unions seems to have left only the most corrupt surviving. They seem to be the only ones that can find ways to browbeat employees into joining when paying dues isn't mandatory. I've heard some stories ...07/07/2015 - 4:57pm
Matthew WilsonI am old school on this. I believe its a conflict of interest to have public sector unions. that being said, I do not have a positive look on unions in general.07/07/2015 - 3:59pm
TechnogeekWhat's best for the employee tends to be good for the employer; other way around, not so much. So long as that's the case, there's going to be a far stronger incentive for management to behave in such a way that invites retalitation than for the union to.07/07/2015 - 3:10pm
TechnogeekTeachers' unions? State legislatures. UAW? Just look at GM's middle management.07/07/2015 - 3:05pm
TechnogeekIn many ways it seems that the worse a union tends to behave, the worse that the company's management has behaved in the past.07/07/2015 - 3:02pm
james_fudgeCharity starts at home ;)07/07/2015 - 2:49pm
james_fudgeSo mandatory charity? That sounds shitty to me07/07/2015 - 2:49pm
E. Zachary KnightGoth, if Union dues are automatically withdrawn, then there is no such thing as a non-union employee.07/07/2015 - 2:38pm
Goth_Skunka mutually agreed upon charity instead.07/07/2015 - 2:33pm
Goth_Skunkyou enjoy the benefits of working in a union environment. If working in a union is against your religious beliefs or just something you wholeheartedly object to, dues will still be deducted from your pay, but you can instruct that they be directed towards07/07/2015 - 2:33pm
Goth_SkunkBasically, if you are employed in a business where employees are represented by a union for the purposes of collective bargaining, whether or not you are a union member, you will have union dues deducted from your pay, since regardless of membership,07/07/2015 - 2:32pm
Goth_SkunkIt's something that has existed in Canada since 1946. You can read more on it here: http://ow.ly/PiHWR07/07/2015 - 2:27pm
Goth_SkunkSee, we have something similar in Canada, called a "Rand Employee." This is an employee who benefits from the collective bargaining efforts of a union, despite not wanting to be a part of it for whatever reason.07/07/2015 - 2:22pm
Matthew Wilson@info depends on the sector. for example, have you looked at how powerful unions are in the public sector? I will make the argument they have too much power in that sector.07/07/2015 - 12:39pm
InfophileIt's easy to worry about unions having too much power and causing harm. The odd thing is, why do people seem to worry about that more than the fact that business-owners can have too much power and do harm, particularly at a time when unions have no power?07/07/2015 - 12:31pm
Matthew Wilsonthe thing is unions earned their bad reputation in the US. the way unions oparate the better at your job you are, the likely you want to be in a union.07/07/2015 - 11:33am
InfophilePut that way, "right to work" seems to have BLEEP-all to do with gay rights. Thing is, union-negotiated contracts used to be one of the key ways to prevent employers from firing at will. Without union protection, nothing stops at-will firing.07/07/2015 - 11:06am
Infophilehas an incentive to pay dues if they're represented either way, so the union is starved for funds and dies, unless things are bad enough that people will pay dues anyway.07/07/2015 - 11:02am
InfophileFor those who don't know, "right to work" laws mean that it can't be a condition of an employment contract that you pay union dues. That is, the right to work without having to pay dues. Catch is, unions have to represent non-members as well, so no one...07/07/2015 - 11:01am
