I just walked as a volunteer yesterday passing petitions.

I just found out FIRST HAND what the responses are out there.

It is absolutely amazing. "Life Long Democrats" are SIGNING REPUBLICAN PETITIONS.

I can't BELIEVE this...it's amazing...

That doesn't mean they like republicans, which is OK. It tells you of the disdain and mistrust they have for this president and his questionable policies. Nobody likes to have laws shoved down their throats.

It's a sin what Pelosi and Obama is doing. It's really a sin. There is plenty of water for everyone.

The little fish could be made useful for something like cat food or fertilizer. Turn on the water.

I understand you'd like to believe that, but they didn't HAVE to sign the petitions.(People don't LIKE signing petitions)

They are AFFIRMATIVE in their support for republicans, not signing as a "protest" against democrats. No one does that. It's not worth the time.

Look, I only received ONE NO on all the doors I knocked on.

As I was turning the petitions in, one gentleman told me "did you know, you picked up 4 democrat signatures on that side of the street alone?"

That's NOT a "protest" signature, these are AFFIRMATIVE actions SUPPORTING republicans...

You've never walked petitions, have you?

People HATE signing them. It's like asking them for a kidney.

And these people were taking the time to sign ALL of them, each one I was carrying.

That is an AFFIRMATIVE action in favor of the republicans, and DEFINATELY bad news for the democrats.

And if you really think California is going to flip to a republican majority next year or even within the next decade, you obviously have been out in the sun too long. Keep on dreaming.....

Yes. California should return to desert, New Oleans should be reclaimed by the sea, and DC should be a swamp.
What do you have against nature? Without nature, people couldn't survive, but without people the earth will continue on just fine. So who needs who more?
Well by that reasoning we all should benomadic hunter gatherers. Nature does not need civilization, why should you?

Fine by me. I've got the great lakes for water & fish, plus all the deer I could ever eat in the Michigan.

How's that cactus sandwich working out for you? Feeling a bit thirsty in your 100 degree heat?

You seem confused by the location that Topix guesses at based on your IP address. I live in Maryland.

It's cold enough here in the winter, but probably mild compared to Michigan. I don't think I would want to be a nomad in Michigan in the winter. Also, I think the lake would also be a mess without those water treatment plants. Millions of people crapping where you fish probably would not be to good for you.

P.S. You spend alot of time on this forum (on your computer) for someone who does not like civilization.
