    Reports on the local Tidewater TV stations and Good Morning America about
    emails and pamphlets being circulated that "due to the tremendous turnout
    expected on November 4th [Election Day], elections officials have decided
    that all Republicans will vote on November 4Th and Democrats will vote on
    November 5th".

    Edit: This is a local [Virginia] thing.... see flyer.

    The F.B.I. is suppose to be 'investigating' this obvious scam.

    Has enyone heard anything like their in their neck of the woods ???

    That one came out in the last election too. It was a joke then. If the hamheads in the FBI can't figure this one out as a joke, then it's time for a revamp of the FBI.

    First I've heard of it, too....but, I have to say that, given the decisions currently being made in D.C., this has to be one of the better one's they've rolled out!

    Along these same lines, the Virginia Board of Elections has reminded all
    cities that there is a Board of Elections rule that you cannot wear any
    clothing, buttons, caps, hats, T-shirts, etc promoting a canditate, or
    to discourage anyone from voting for a candidate, within 40 feet of the
    polls. This has been a big stink in the local papers for a week. The folks
    who take care of the elections in Virginia Beach say they will NOT enforce
    the ruling.

    A quick primer:

    It used to be Republicans were conservatives and believed in the following:
    Make Abortion Illegal
    No gun control
    strong military
    Business friendly
    Pro Death Penelty
    Strong base of middle-upper income Christian Followers


    It used to be Democrats were liberals and believed in the following:

    legal abortions
    gun control
    strong military is not necessary
    lots of expensive "warm fuzzy" social programs
    Anti Death Penalty
    Strong base of lower - middle income "working man" Followers


    IMO
    The lines have blurred in the past decades. Now, they're just two political parties whose members will say whatever they have to to form the right alliances and gain power. In today's arena, if Dems and Reps disagree it's not as much about values and ideology, its about trying to capture the votes that your opponent is shunning.

    If there are more questions the matter deserves it's own thread.. people will have strong opinions.
