Posted on 11/06/12 at 09:59 am in response to On Election Day: What would Lincoln do?

Some states still (or at least Indiana did, when I was in graduate school) have a one step straight party ticket option on the ballot.

of course, if you submitted an absentee, you can show up on election day and vote in person. In that case, the absentee ballot is pulled, and not counted. That's why absentee ballots are left uncounted until the others are counted.

It's true, that process won't cover someone voting in multiple states as Ms. Kohls posits, but then, neither will the voter amendment on the ballot.

Only a national voting regimen with either a single national database, or interlinked state...

Add the pedestrian walk signals as a full, exclusive cycle to the traffic signal.

In that cycle, pedestrians cross all four intersections, and even diagonally. Automobiles don't move at all: no right turn on red.

The same applies to pedestrians: no pedestrians move when cars are moving anywhere in the intersection.

This eliminates all car/pedestrian interactions (no pedestrians in a blind spot of a turning car, e.g.).

And it could actually reduce gridlock, as...

You have your logic backwards.

There is no need to "prove" atheism.

At least Parry will be "self-deporting" from the legislature at the end of the year.

I think primarily because he was already in Fargo for Heitkamp. A jaunt over to Duluth would be a boost for Nolan, who is also in a close race.

Once again, you fail to explain how those " stable marriages of a man and a woman who engage in the procreative act" are endangered by allowing same sex couples the same rights.

Marriage rights are not a zero sum game.

You will lose nothing once gays are allowed to marry.

the very existence of infertile couples, and couples childless by choice invalidates your first sentence. There are even couples that never "consummate" their marriage.

But, as you say, no worries... within 10 y ears or so, same sex marriage will be legal across all 50 states, and the NoM forces will be tossed on the scrap heap of history, just like the opponents of interracial and inter-faith marriage have been.

Given that gays have existed through all time, that's not going to change. The fact is, gay children have always, and always will be born to heterosexual parents.

"...for they do not have the birthrate as the religious..."

Granted, fundamentalist religions are the fastest growing religions. But you know what's growing even faster? Secularists.

Multiple times.

I'm curious how much more the moderators are going to let Mr, Krasnoff troll the thread with the exact same question that has already been answered.
