    We have a vested interest in keeping those likely to vote for you home on election day just as much as you have a vested interest in keeping those likely to vote for us home on election day.
    I didn't realize you were so disturbed.

    I'm not a fan of people voting who aren't passionate about the issues and who aren't fully educated on those issues. Since most people who aren't registered to vote are likely neither passionate nor educated about the issues, I would agree that attempting to register anyone who was previously unregistered is inappropriate. All that get out the vote stuff makes me sick.

    I think saying any group of people shouldn't be allowed to vote is what is Un-American.

    "Keeping people home" is not the answer. Educating people and allowing them to choose and vote is the answer.

    Did I say that?

    All I was saying is that it's in a group's best interest if those who would vote against them don't come out.

    I mean this in the nicest possible way, but your ability to understand what I'm saying is lacking. I literally meant the words I said, to extrapolate my personal position on the subject beyond what I had said makes no sense. I was just stating the interests involved.

    I'm personally a big proponent of voter education.

    I think you should sit the next few plays out.

    I think the phrase "anarcho-capitalist libertarian" is kind of like "left wing commies." A catchall, stereotypical sort of thing. Not necessarily accurate. But whatever.

    Just because I don't personally like it doesn't mean I'm against it; democracy may not be perfect, far from it, but it's still beats communist dictatorship any day of the week.

    Not even close to accurate. And really annoying, because American Thinker is pretty right-wing socially,as well as neoconservative and Israel-obsessed. "Anarcho-capitalist" in particular is an extremely specific thing to be. Even "libertarian" is way more narrow than "left-wing." And to call someone who is not a communist "commie" is pretty stupid. Marmie is just really annoying with the "libertarian" epithets, and it needs to stop. I don't want to see it spread.
