Is anybody else struck by the seemingly huge increase in turnout? Not just mail-in but election day voting too? Even in deep red Trump country, I’m surprised at the turnout given that Missouri is all but a lock for Trump. My Facebook feed is filled up with pictures of long lines and “I was xxx […]

Join Jim and Greg as they offer a rare compliment to the European Union for sanctioning China in response to Beijing’s crackdown in Hong Kong. They also discuss why voting by mail this year could be a gigantic mess and why President Trump musing about delaying the election is also a big mistake. They roll their eyes as Dr. Fauci suggests covering them with goggles or face shields to protect from COVID. And they remember successful businessman and 2012 presidential candidate Herman Cain, who passed away after a battle with COVID.

Most being of strong soul and mind, almost all Ricochetti have already taken the time, I’m sure, to contact their Senator regarding the Kavanaugh conformation process. I just did. And I’m hoping Donnelly is (hu)man enough to vote for posterity in this confirmation process. Sen. Donnelly, Preview Open

What’s Your Most Embarrassing Vote?

 

hanging-chad-guyWe haven’t all been good conservatives. Some of us in the naivety of youth used to vote straight Democrat. Others were never liberal, but did stray here and there, like punching a chad for Mondale. Whether Rubio or He Who Shall Not Be Named is nominated, half the right will be gritting their teeth and casting a vote they’ll feel ashamed of. So now is a perfect time for us to confess our electoral sins. Let me start.

It’s no secret that I used to be a leftist, and not long ago. The first time I voted was in 2008, and it was for Barack Obama. While I’m not overjoyed with that, I can’t say I have confidence we’d have been better off with John McCain. He was one of the fathers of “campaign finance reform” and a man who joined the Republican party not to promote fiscal responsibility but to prove he’s always the most reasonable man in the room. McCain would likely have picked up where the Bush administration left off, expanding government and spending into oblivion — when he wasn’t busy declaring war on the other 193 UN member states. Oh, I’m being unfair to the old saber-rattler. With the guidance of his vice-president, he would’ve finally brought a peaceful resolution to the ghastly and protracted War on Christmas.

In 2012 I went for a (slight) upgrade, but it still won’t win me any friends around here. Disillusioned with Obama for a number of leftist reasons — his failure to fulfill his promise on closing Guantanamo, the signing the 2012 NDAA, more war in the Middle East, no public option, crackdowns on medical marijuana dispensaries, and so on — I wrote-in Bernie Sanders. At the time, I admired him for not being part of the establishment and openly describing himself as a socialist. Now I look at him as a coot with a dim understanding of economics, but at least he’s good on gun rights and he’s not a rat like most politicians. Still, four years of Obama was enough. America deserved better, and Romney was better. Of course, the election hinged on my vote, so I apologize for letting America down.

So you voted. What do you want — a medal? When did voting become the adult equivalent to riding a bike without training wheels? For that matter, when did it become the only right which comes with a sticker?  No other right comes with a sticker. You never see stickers which read “I bought a gun today,” which makes much more […]
