    Hey, they haven't kicked me out yet, so they can't be all that picky about who gets to hang around, right?

    I know he's doing his Master's at SCAD, I'm pretty sure. I'm assuming he's just very busy, though I've seen him post a couple of times in the past number of months, though not any more than that.

    I think he lurks a lot.

    Mega disappearing was the biggest gut hit for me, but I think it was because he finally got a job as a concept artist after 8 years of being a caricature artist at some Vegas hotel or something.

    If anyone deserved that job, it was him. Just a great guy all around, and he really deserved it, especially after all the shit he had to muck through in his art school career.

    That would be really great if it were true. I loved Mega's stuff - it was so out there, and colorful, and fresh-feeling. Hahah, I remember the first time I ever saw him post his work, soon after I joined the forums, I think. I poured compliments into that thread. I really hope he made it to that, if that's what he wanted. He was really good.

    Man, I think I still owe MegaMau an apology for being such a douchebag, especially to him, when I came in.

    @link: Actually, what can I say? What can anyone say? Those are the people that make me ashamed of my country. Narrow, bigoted, arrogant, xenophobic, dogmatic, willfully ignorant asshats.

    These are the kind of people that want McCain in office. Therefore McCain should not be in office. Oh wait, how many Americans fall into this category again? Damn.

    We should just split into two different countries...or the states should have more power like they're actually supposed to.

    As a Canadian, I'm sort of curious to see how the election plays out. I was blown away that Bush was elected for a second term and it seems like only a very small percentage of the actual population is represented in the media. My impression is that the two coasts are more evenly divided or leaning towards Obama but everything in-between is still a lot more conservative in general.

    Only 50% of our country tends to vote. I think Republicans tend to be far more patriotic/nationalistic, so they are more likely to want to participate in the democratic process, and older people tend to be more conservative. So I think if there ARE more Liberals/On-the-fence people, they are underrepresented for all sorts of reasons. Then there's also the dumbasses that think voting for Green party and such is worth their vote, so they basically aren't voting either.

    It's not, because an independent voter would vote for Obama, not McCain (well...some at least, I think the majority of independent parties are more liberal).

    Right - because a third party candidate can't win...blah blah blah.

    Maybe you're a dumbass because there was a "third party" president who won without even being on the ballot of 9 states.

    So maybe people should vote for who they think should be president instead of playing this two party game when neither party is really what they want.

    Wikipedia wrote:
    Green Party candidate Ralph Nader was widely accused of tipping the 2000 election to George W. Bush. In Florida, Bush received 537 more votes than Al Gore. While all third-party candidates received more than 537 votes in Florida (and 175,000 votes were not counted), Nader, who received the most votes of the third-party candidates, had made a point of campaigning in tightly-contested Florida. In contrast, conservative third-party candidate Pat Buchanan had limited most of his campaign efforts to states where Al Gore was projected to win by a wide margin to minimize taking votes from George Bush.
    I don't know who you're talking about who won, and I've never heard of it, so instead of calling me a dumbass you might want to give me a name instead of just a statement.

    It would be cool if not playing this two party game mattered when it came to the president, but it doesn't. Sure, governors and other positions are more likely to get more independent parties, but a Green president is not going to win this race. Every vote that goes to the Green party is one that could have stopped McCain from getting into office, and the same thing happened with Bush. Maybe if all these third party voters would get off their high horse of "I have an opinion and I'd like to express it" and think a little more practically, then we wouldn't have people like George Bush or John McCain in office.

    Now, when you can convince a large enough group of people that the other candidates have something worth saying, I'll be all for it, but as it stands, you can't, so it's basically just burning your ballot. Especially with this race. No state is going to go Green before Blue, and the more Greens that vote Blue, the less likely more states will go Red.

    Yeah, I know the arguments for not voting third party - I still stand by people should vote for who they want to be president instead of playing the "well they can't win..." game. If everybody who was tired of the crap the two party system has been offering us voted third party, change could happen, but people with your attitude prevent that from happening.

    I was referring to Lincoln - the first Republican president.

    That's true. I guess i'm just looking at the idealized version of him rather than the actual man himself.

    I hear that if it wasn't for his assasination he would have been remembered as a terrible president. The same can be said for JFK (shockers I know).

    Well, maybe not as a bad President, but records seem to indicate that he was an extremely manipulative politician (he was one hell of a goddamn liar)- saying whatever got him what he wanted. This is seems to be especially true regarding his views on race. If we go by his actions alone, then he was pretty compassionate, but it's impossible to make a solid interpretation on his words because he flip-flopped in a way to make John Kerry look like a marble column of integrity.

    Gandhi was a shocker for me. Though he pushed principles of civil disobedience/nonviolent protest and inspired Dr. King and Nelson Mandela, he was a pretty horrible racist, a pervy old guy, and some argue he sidetracked an already effective independence efforts by people like Bhagat Singh and Chandrasekhar Azad.
