Re: OT - non-partisan

Settle down.  OT is allowed here when prefaced as such.  I stick by what I
wrote.  I suggested people look at the ad, nothing more, which had nothing
to do with Kerry, and everything to do with getting people to vote, which in
my view is nonpartisan.
A friend suggested I see the ad, I followed the URL, viewed the ad, and
thought it good enough to share with everyone.  I did not read the rest of
the page.  I do not read everything on every website I visit.  Consequently,
I have absolutely no clue what you are talking about when you mention the
Electoral College.  But I do respect your right to bring it up in CHAT.

I urge everyone out there to vote, even if it is for Nader.  Even if the EC
throws your vote out the window.  Just do it!  This is your country and you
should vote - every last one of you.

Kitty, from the Green State
