Allow me to get on my soapbox for a second. I think our political system is corruptified and I’m all about a smaller government where states have more control. That said, I’d like to play a roll (however smaller) in moving things in a more awesomer direction.

My Sample Ballot
I’ve copied and pasted what comes up for me when I go through the steps listed above:
|This is your sample ballot for the following election:|
|11/2/2010 – 2010 GENERAL ELECTION|
Today I decided that I might vote (lol). The last time I voted was in 2008 and… I was kind of pissed off about all the other people I was suppose to vote for and never even heard of! You can hardly escape hearing about the major battles, but the smaller ones should be just as important (more so if government was structured the way it should be).
So, thinking to myself that I might actually go vote, I decided to do some interneting to find out who was running and for what. To my surprise, it was actually HARD for me to google that information! (WTF!?) It’s no wonder people don’t vote. Here it is 2010, with iPhones and Androids and… I can’t easily find that little piece of information? I could probably find out what Lady Gagagagaga had for dinner yesterday and I can’t find out who I’m voting for? Fuck you America! You (damn it… we) deserve what we get!
