In 2004, I voted for Bush in the Presidential election. I voted Democrat for all of my local elections in Georgia. Bush was literally the only Republican I've voted for.

No, all voting is immoral and illogical within the statist paradigm.

It's a direct violation of natural law. No man has the right to rule over another.

Would you set aside your morality for the greater good say something like, I don't know, maybe...legalized weed?

1968, while at sea in the Navy.

It was the only time I didn't cast a vote for the President. I had been at sea for most of the year, and didn't know who to vote for except for the locals at home and in the state. I knew them from before I enlisted.

It may seem odd now that sailors would be out of touch with politics at home, but back then, a Navy ship halfway around the world just didn't get very much fresh news, especially when on station at sea.

I was stationed on a ship that operated independently of a fleet; we always sailed alone, and at the time, it was the only naval vessel in the Indian Ocean. That's about as remote and out of touch as it got in the Navy back then.

2000 was the first election I could vote in, and I voted for Al Gore.

Here we go again. More Republican embellishment.

Or perhaps you are indeed the oldest CD poster at 116?

Thanks for a post that made me laugh and think and do some math. In any event you win the clever award!

Good old Silent Cal. Now those were the days!
