    If way deep down you want the USA to become, ultimately, a socialist/communist dictatorship, either do not vote or vote for a 3rd party candidate. At least a vote for the Republicans helps keep us a Constitutional Republic for a while. I foresee, in time, with the Democrats imploding like they are, that the major party will be the Republicans and there will be 2 or 3 other parties fighting to become the new second strongest party. At THAT time, we Republicans need to carefully watch our (R) representatives to insure that they are not leaning towards some type of dictatorship, it works both ways.

    Oh, and by the way, REMEMBER: These people in both Harrisburg and Washington ARE NOT our leaders, they are our representatives and as such they need to be very aware that WE THE PEOPLE can remove them from office at any time, by any means necessary.

    I received an email from my favorite person entitled "Consequences" :

    Friend --

    Next Tuesday's elections are more important than any I can remember in my lifetime -- and that includes when I was on the ballot. That's saying something.

    Now I know politicians say all the time, "This is the most important election." But this one really is that important. The stakes really are that high.

    The consequences of you not voting -- or not doing everything in your power to ensure your friends, family, and neighbors vote -- could be monumental.

    America is at a crossroads, and control of Congress may be decided by a handful of razor-thin House and Senate races. Dozens of governorships and thousands of state legislative seats are up for grabs, with major implications on whether we can draw fairer maps for the next decade.

    Make no mistake: The direction of the country will come down to who turns out and who stays home. And the greatest threat to our democracy is indifference.

    Indifference is exactly what cynical politicians want from you. They're counting on it. Their success depends on convincing you that your vote doesn't matter. They know their agenda is unpopular, so the only way to keep power is by shrinking the electorate.

    Don't let them.

    If you're mad at politicians trying to take us back to the days of health insurers denying people with pre-existing conditions of care ... Vote.

    If you're sick of politicians giving huge tax cuts to billionaires, only to tell you we have no choice but to slash Medicare and Social Security ... Vote.

    If you're upset with politicians denying basic climate science as our communities continue to pay a steeper and steeper price ... Vote.

    If you're outraged by politicians refusing to pass common-sense gun laws in the face of a tragic epidemic ... Vote.

    If you're frustrated with politicians failing to adequately stand up for the rights of immigrants, or women, or LGBTQ Americans ... Vote. Vote. Vote.

    Vote like our democracy depends on it, friend. Make a commitment right now to get to the polls -- and get involved in these final 8 days.

    I'm in
    Thank you,

    Barack Obama

    This is it for me, one party has repeatedly tried to destroy my 2nd Amendment rights, time and time again. I few years back I found an "old school" Vote Republican metal sign at Cracker Barrel. It hangs on the wall beside my front door for several months before each election.

    Simple enough for me.

    Agreed. If the mostly-pro-gun Republicans get 48% of the vote and the pro-gun 3rd party gets 3% of the vote and the anti-gun Democrats get 49% of the vote, we end up electing the anti-gun Democrats, passing anti-gun laws, no matter how the purists "feel" about their "integrity".

    Results matter. Squandering votes on candidates who can't win is poor tactics, like a general only choosing strategies that won't get a single one of his men killed, and losing the war as a result, so that his men and their families have to live under an occupying force.
