Well.. it's depressingly official, Bush is now President-Elect Bush.. leaving the country promptly.. LOL

The media has started recounts of the Florida votes now. One recount in a conservative county gave Al a net gain of 136, I think it was.. That means he needs (well, needed) 20 votes to overcome Bush's partial-hand-recount-lead.

Alright Doc, we need a new subject to debate now.. any ideas?

I disagree about the capris.. make the female legs look fab-u-lous.. but that's not going to get heated enough, like I like it.

Global warming sounds good.. but I'm not a big environmentalist. Since you're a Republican, you're not either, but that can't be much fun.. abortion could get TOO heated.. any other ideas?

Public school vouchers?

I'm a public school teacher (and in the state of texas) and I trully believe that our public schools in our state and our nation would be better if we had some competition for those tax dollars.....

Is this too heated or not interesting enough...? http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif

Explain to me the entire purpose of school vouchers, then we'll talk. Haven't really read up on them since they weren't made an issue during this campaign.

What about Bush's ludicrous 1.6 trillion tax cut? That ties in to our party ideaologies as well, all the better http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I said i"f people are bashed/ostracized due to the fact they voted for such and such a candidate then we might as well drop our Deomocracy and go straight to Communism"
I did not say "if there's one single REQUIREMENT for us to do anything....if we even have to think to vote...THEN WE'RE HEADED STRAIGHT TO COMMUNISM...."
Sorry to be quivel but there is a large difference in the two statements.

And I do think mentally challenged people should be able to vote...They are citizens right? The represent a part of the population right? The way our country is ran directly affects them, right? Why shouldn't they be able to vote? (I know I am going to get bashed for this but...)Even if they don't ENTIRELY understand a certain subject their vote still represents them and what they think...I am sure many people you would deem competent have voted on a measure/candidate/whatever not knowing the details. Really that is the same thing, in my mind. And on a final note, I do not consider myself "a liberal" (that term just makes your bones quiver, huh?) I actually consider myself a conservative democrat (Oh, be quiet doc, I can hear you laughing from here) I seriously just like playing the devil's advocate.

Okay.. well, better a conservative Democrat than a liberal Republican, I guess. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
