    Everyone registered can vote one time. You're not allowed to change your vote.

  • I would vote if I had a clue or an opinion, but I don't. The shutdown is completely irrational. The Dems are demanding something that would easily pass both Houses of Congress if a vote were permitted. The Republican leadership, including the president, are on the record that they favor legalizing the Dreamers. As far as I can tell, the CR doesn't contain a major poison pill for Dems. It even renews CHIP. Apparently, Schumer offered to support money for Trump's stupid wall in his conversation with the president.  A resolution of this disagreement should be easy. Yet, here we are.
    On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heartís desire at last, and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and a complete narcissistic moron.
