Split the Vote coming into Vogue.

I happened to be reading a blog article the other day and was caught off guard by the use of the phrase, Split the Vote. Was I on to something when I thought of this blog over a year and a half ago?

If you are planning on splitting your vote, tell me how. In retrospect, things might have gone better short term if democrats did not have such a super majority after the 2008 elections.

Protesting a restaurant owner for donating 100 dollars to yes on Prop 8 misses a huge point.

I disagree with the boycott of the El Coyote restaurant in Los Angeles. Just because the owner is mormon and donated a hundred dollars to the yes on 8 proposition is not reason enough to boycott. The employees of El Coyote restaurant, some of whom are gay, probably donated MORE than one hundred dollars to defeat proposition 8. If a restaurant generates more money against the passage of proposition 8 than it did for the passage of proposition 8, it doesn't make sense to boycott the restaurant. El Coyote Boycott over a hundred dollar donation.

If the restaurant employees did not give more than the restaurant owner's hundred dollars to defeat Propositon 8, why is that acceptable? It sure does seem as if the very modest 100 dollar donation made by the owner could easily have been offset by those who work at the resaurant and are gay.

Or do offsets only count when it comes to global warming?

Did African Americans Vote for Barack Obama, but against Proposition 8 in California?

I hadn't considered the possibility that a black person could pull the lever for Barack Obama AND vote against Proposition 8.

The irony is so over the top it's like, you can't make this stuff up. I wonder how many had tears in their eyes after Barack Obama won, yet they voted no on Proposition 8, which would have kept Gay Marriage sanctioned in California.

My gosh, could you imagine interviews where people try and explain how they split their vote in this situation, especially people who were crying after Barack Obama was declared the winner.

I personally think that the defeat of Proposition 8 in California only matters if a gay person desires to bring themselves down to the level of heterosexual marriage.

Split-The-Vote

Announcing Split The Vote. This is a way for democrats who support Hillary Clinton but who are not happy with how the DNC ran the nomination process can stand and be counted.

This fall, split your vote. Vote for either McCain, and the democratic congress people in your district, or vote for Obama, and the Republican congress people in your district. Or, split your vote and vote for Nader or the Green Party, and maybe don't vote at all for the congress people running in your area for re-election.

Split the Vote just the way the DNC split the vote in Florida and Michigan.
