• Elections

    From Aaron Thomas@1:229/426 to All on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 15:47:58
    I have advise that can benefit the left and the right:

    1) Don't let the presidential candidates tell you who to vote for in other elections. I like Trump, but he doesn't know what life is like outside Florida. Don't be starstruck by Biden either; his opinion about who to elect for your district's reps are none of his business. He doesn't know or care about your local life either.

    2) Vote in your primary elections. Look for fighters. This should be common sense, but some people over look it and head straight for the general election with a false sense that the primary gave you the right candidate.

    3) When a candidate refuses to debate, toss them to the curb! A real fighter doesn't pull ridiculous policies out of their pocket after winning an election.

    For me, local politicians screw up my life way more than the feds, so they're more relevant.

    Hello Aaron,

    I have advise that can benefit the left and the right:

    1) Don't let the presidential candidates tell you who to vote for in other
    elections.

    We do not have national elections.

    2) Vote in your primary elections. Look for fighters. This should be common
    sense, but some people over look it and head straight for the general election with a false sense that the primary gave you the right candidate.

    We do not have primary elections.

    3) When a candidate refuses to debate, toss them to the curb! A real fighter
    doesn't pull ridiculous policies out of their pocket after winning an election.

    Not all candidates are invited to debate.

    For me, local politicians screw up my life way more than the feds, so
    they're more relevant.

    Message #21109 was my message on this BBS. Not sure if the message #
    is the same on all BBSs


    it is not and most likely never will be... systems have different feeds and retention settings... if a system has to restart the area, the messages start at #1 again...

    1) don't let anyone tell you who to vote for!

    2) I'm going to tell you who to vote for.

    3) I'm going to tell you who to vote for again

    By me telling you to vote for strong candidates, you take that as me
    telling you who to vote for?

    Go ahead and read what you just said again, very slowly. I'll wait.
