    I am so ashamed to be a young person right now.

    Hey, if you voted, you have nothing to be ashamed about. I've thought long and hard about what can be done in order to get people in our age group to vote...I'm still thinking...

    Yeah, you know, that's what could've turned this whole election. Young people would've made the difference.

    Maybe that "slacker" designation isn't unfair. I mean, if you can't save your country by getting your lazy ass out to vote....

    EDIT: By the way, unless we pull out a last-minute miracle, I'm ashamed to be an Ohioan.

    You mean uneducated young people? Oops, did I just say that :p

    Anyway, I voted, and I'm young, and I went with Bush. I don't think all young people are liberals... just a lot of them... until they're enlightened!

    I prefer to call them brain-washed.

    No thanks. I'm not drinking that Kool-Aid - I'm proud to say I'll be socially liberal for life.

    Back on topic - The sort of buzz I got from voting today is so far gone right now.

    Question? Who attacked us on 9/11?

    A) Bin Laden?
    B) Saudi Arabians?
    C) Saddam?

    There are WMDs in Iraq, and they were ready to attack us:

    1) True
    2) False

    Considering how many Bush voters couldn't answer those questions correctly, I wouldn't say enlightened. BTW, I'm not a Liberal. I just don't like being misled. Where is Bin Laden again?

    Having a hearty chuckle somewhere, I'd bet my bottom dollar. Or my bottom pound, if I can get this moving to England thing sorted out.

    Thanks, my generation.

    I think one should have to pass an IQ test to prove that they're capable of intelligent thought, before being allowed to vote. Then again, one should have to pass a slightly more rigorous test to be allowed to run for the presidency. If so, we would all be in a better place right now.

    Now it's just more underground, limited to things like circulating flyers that impersonate election officials, tell Democrats the polls are being rotated to Wednesday, and that any potential unpaid parking ticket will result in your being arrested when you go to vote.

    :rolleyes:

    Or going around slashing republican voter's car's tire. Or tampering with voting machines for your own personal agenda. Such and such

    The argument goes both ways. In most cases though, liberals tend to be more vocal then conservatives.
