So let me see if I have this straight…you vote for the most extreme of all the extremists, right or left. Yet, you support the proposition that poses a threat to the extremists more than it does anyone else.

How does that work?

I have voted.
Sheriff - Tony Estrada
Supervisor - John Maynard
State Reps - Dalessandro and Ackerly
House - Grijalva, not specifically to rattle Bret’s chain, but if I get that as a side effect, it’s a bonus ;-)
Senate - Carmona, since he was recruited by both sides
President - Johnson, Romney will take the state so I figured that supporting the Libertarian goal of getting to 5% of the popular vote was a good thing.  We need more than D’s and R’s on the debate stages.
Anything that didn’t have two or more options - left blank
Yes to retain the judge
Voted no on all the props but 116, 118, 121.  Own a small business, so 116 is good.  Tired of seeing school crap on the ballot every year, so maybe 118 will help them budget. Totally agree with Bret on 121.

Predictions?  Status Quo.  Obama, Dem Senate, Rep House.  The Republicans will still not get “it” that voters dislike obstruction more than they dislike Obama.  So, in 2016, if Clinton runs, she’s got a damn good shot.  And, she will be probably be the most experienced and qualified candidate that the country has every had…except for that minor detail of not having a penis.

Now that I told you how I am going to vote, I’ll share my prediction for the presidential race. I’m not saying this is what I want. I’m not saying this is right or wrong or good or bad…this is just what I think will happen.

Generally speaking, in recent times people vote for the president with their wallets and their cars. The economy has not noticeably recovered for the common man, ans gas prices have nearly doubled since Obama took office.

So, if I were to bet on the race I’m going to bet on Romney. Were I to make such a bet, I wouldn’t give any points, though…

Sorry, we missed your input...
