Congratulations. You would go far if there was someplace left to go. But so many people have voted themselves an unearned share of the U.S. that there will be few opportunities for people such as you.

Those who do not dream and ruined it for those who do.

Sadly, I voted for Dukakis in '88 as my first eligible presidential election. :o :o :o

Grew up over the next four years & have voted for the Republican in every one since, though.

Would have voted for Bush in '88, but was TDY and didn't have an absentee ballot. However, the polling was so strong against Dukakis that I didn't sweat it.
Bush '92
Dole '96
Bush '00
Bush '04
McCain '08
Romney '12

Dole and McCain were unpleasant choices. I supported Forbes in the primaries against Dole, and Giuliani against McCain (Rudy was the only mayor of NYC to ever cut the budget, welfare rolls and taxes, and he governed more conservatively on social issues than most professed social conservatives, despite his statements to the contrary).

Not to mention that Rudy cut crime in NYC. That's no small task.

Just think the next vote will be between Lord Humungous and some wasteland drifter, assuming my worst fears.

Considering that is in Australia and he'll have his hands full with Mad Max, I think we'll be OK.
