    Maryland Votes ... Sort Of



    Only a 15% turn out.

    Shameful.

    Not surprising to me for two reasons. There is no democrat candidate to elect and I'm convinced anyone not voting for Obama are of the mindset ABO.

    A primary race that is pretty much already decided, featuring no candidate from the majority party, with no major local issues also on the ballot?

    15% is about twice what I would've guessed.

    Re: Maryland Votes ... Sort Of

    Im an indie so when someone asked me if I voted today I said what election was it? I forgot about the primaries. I was consumed with more important things like caring for a mother who could soon be going into a nursing home while I'm trying to keep her out. Looks like a lot of people forgot there were primaries.

    So, HR thinks it's shameful that so many didn't vote. Hell, Santorum didn't even campaign here so Romney won hands down
    and spent $450,000 on TV ads with no opponents or opponents that campaigned here. He's still
    spending uselessly like when he was guv of Mass for 28 lousy
    delegates-lol.

    Ive been saying I might not vote in the general
    election because I'm never voting for someone I don't believe in
    again. I'm never voting for the lesser of two evils like I did with
    Bush. I'm sorry I voted for him because he betrayed us.

    I don't like Romney plain and simple because he's even more
    liberal than W or McCain and has flipped so many times you
    don't know what he believes in. He's like the kid who always
    yelled wolfe. So I may not vote and I don't give a damn what anyone says.

    I showed up when I was drafted and did my time while being assigned to a unit that took over 50% of the casualties of the
    entire damn war. I didn't go over because my
    unit came back and I came back home to APG. I also pay my taxes.
