My own parents were McCain supporters till she came along.
Also, I spent my entire adult life not ever registering to vote and when she started talking... well, Wisconsin has "same-day voter registration" and I did. And I voted for the lesser of the two evils. Just to keep her as far away from the White House as possible.
I can still remember when things started to turn, because at first I was all: "Hey, a woman! From Alaska!" Then about her interviews: "Well, she's nervous..." but she kept talking and talking and then it came out about Bristol being pregnant and her whole abstinence-only education thing... just... well, all of it combined and sent me over the edge of voter apathy.
And now, I dislike her so much that I have and still do use the word "hate". I hate Sarah Palin.

I'm a registered independent which means, in Iowa in particular, I'm already getting a ton political calls.
I got one the other day that said, "If you had to vote today for President, who would you vote for?" Since it only listed people like Romney and Palin, I just hung up. All I could think was, "No 'None of the above?' choices?"
dude those tea partiers are a joke, and when i hear stuff about they might be running the republican party i think it's like from the onion or something. that being said though i am a registered democrat, i don't vote on party lines. i voted for bloomberg here in nyc, a former republican turned "independent" instead of the dem guy solely on i had no idea anything about any of the other guys, they didn't pull strongly with me a bloomberg just gave more info about himself. the old devil you know kinda deal.
Waiting for that dark hole with my name on it to crawl into.
Yeah, in the primaries you gotta pick a side, so i don't vote in the primaries, i only vote in the general elections. The kids and i do it together, they learn about the candidates and the initiatives and make decisions on their own, which aren't always the same ones i make.
By the time they are both 18, they will be pros at voting.
i'm a figment of my own imagination....sometimes i don't exist
I just sit there with my mouth open, while my throat gets dry, making a slow, low moan the entire time the election process takes place. Occasionally, to break up the monotony, I bang my head against the wall.
We all participate in our own way.
