I voted.

If you're a Republican here in RI it's like shoveling sh!t against the tide. All three members of Congress (Democrats) will get reelected in a walk. So will the Democrat governor, Democrat mayor of Providence. I loathe them all. It's borderline psychotic how much I despise the sniveling, spineless blowhards. Geez, I hate them.
Sorry, I had to get that out of my system.


Anytime you live in a state that is overwelming one party or the other, sometimes it feels like your vote doesn't count, especially in a presidential year. Pisses me off that whether you are in blue California or red Oklahoma, your vote means nothing compared to a voter in Ohio or Florida. I understand the constitution was a compromise, but every vote should count the same.


...it's bad enough (for me and other Republicans) that our entire congressional delegation is liberal but it's how and why they stick to their agenda. They're spineless. RI ranks last or damn near it in most economic indicators and yet the Dems control everything, it's automatic. I vote. I vote to appease my conscience. My vote is otherwise useless.

Serious question - have you ever thought about moving to an area that fits your values and has more prosperity? I had this same problem, growing up in a very rural conservative town, so in my early years I got the heck outta dodge and moved to the big city. I know sometimes its not practical for everyone, but seeing how you loathe the state, I thought Id ask.

"I remember that over the last few elections some prominent Dem celebs said they would leave the country if Bush/Bush/Trump won.
Haven't seen any of them leave yet."


I remember our President claiming that he would show his tax returns.
Haven't seen any of them shown yet.

Now may be the time. He may be compelled by law.
