*warriorscot doesn't get the logic but he's Scottish and we have almost banned all three already. And ill tell you what doesn't sound all that great at the time but with hindsight its a big improvement.
also voted to allow gambling establishments. Why should people go to Indiana for entertainment? Casinos don't make gamblers any more than having cigarettes makes a smoker, the same as guns don't kill people, people firing guns at other people kills people
If you dont like the vote do what alot do here and vote for something stupid or as we have here parties that are themselves an objection to real parties and not proper political vote, the mad raving loony party used to do very well here before old lord sutch died. It shows you want to vote but dont like the way the government is run, its one of the biggest reason British politics has moved from the traditional two party system similar to the US to essentially a three party and in Scotland a four party. If you dont vote you dont count but voting for someone else or something else speaks huge volumes when leaders see votes "wasted" on nothing parties and independents they sit up and listen. Voter apathy isnt just a problem in the US its a problem everywhere and in the US its a problem for everyone even us who dont live their because well your presidents they like to interfere, how we miss Clinton here in the UK.

What really appalled me was that this particular election my appropriate voting place was in the middle of an apartment complex. I was fortunate to be able to take some time off work and arrive at 4 or 4:30 PM. There was no provision for parking and even if I did park as close as I possibly could in a little red zone to accomodate pedestrians, it was still a little over fifty steps to get to the front door of the voting place.
I couldn't help but imagine what things were like in the morning (or worse) what they would be like after everyone got off work. Most people who wanted to vote bad enough to do so would be forced to park at least a block away....
Maybe I should feel "special" living in such a prodigous district... Are we in my district not supposed to vote?
/end rant :/
