    you have to register for the site, then you can click the vote link. Once it has enough votes it will go before the prez!

    Ohh. Ok. I might take the time, but these are all things that are 100% liberal. So I wont vote until January 20th, when this country can actually get something done.

    Well what they're doing is having rounds for voting for the issues, and this one needs more votes to meet the next round. So this, and any other issue you agree with, make sure you push it to the next round. There's no elimination in the sense that only a certain amount can get through, but in the sense that they want to see continued interest in a subject.

    And this is a website set up by the Obama administration, so you don't have to wait. And you can always start more moderate or conservative ideas as well.

    Obama's site is change.GOV not change.org.

    http://www.change.org/info/about

    Change.org is a social entrepreneurship venture based in San Francisco, CA. The company was founded by Ben Rattray in the summer of 2005, and with the support of a friend from Stanford, Mark Dimas, and a founding team of Darren Haas, Rajiv Gupta, and Adam Cheyer, Change.org launched the first version of its site in 2007.

    ah, well regardless I doubt that whether you vote for the issues now or January 20th will have any effect

    I'll go vote. It makes little sense, but whatever. I'll do it, and I agree with most of the ideas I looked at. I'm extremely liberal, so this is a great site for me. I'll check out change.gov as well..

    Yea, but as long as its in the Lounge, I don't care. I would love to have an open debate right here. The members on here (for the most part) seem quite intelligent and should have solid opinions, with support for those opinions. Well, I did say most.

    IMO, I think we should leave religion/politics out

    Or maybe have a separate forum for it

    I would love to see TA grow as a regular community and not just for iPhone gaames

    I agree... i respect everyone's opinions here, but a fair amount can't vote yet (not a bad thing) but unless you've paid taxes ha you can't say anything! :p

    Speaking of taxes, my purchase for Tiki Towers was $1.04 instead of $.99! whats the deal!

    I don't know. Sales tax in KY is 6%, so every "$.99" app is actually $1.05.

    I agree that a lot of the people shouldn't ever vote. If they do, hello President Nader! And no, TA doesn't need to turn into a general purpose forum, but I don't mind a dedicated thread to a nice political debate. Haven't had a decent one since Election Day.

    I think Ron Paul would get voted in before Nader lol

    He'd be a better President than Nader, but Hillary Clinton is much better than any of them. I wish Obama and Hillary's places were switched, and she was the next President. The 90's were wonderful. So, anybody up for a nice debate. Either do it here, or PM. That is if I can find a Republican here....

    I'm pretty conservative in terms of the economy, but I have very liberal principles... I guess you can call me a conservative libertarian? lol

    IMO the 90s were good, but I believe it set up for today's economic problems, especially the mortgage issues

    A libertarian is a person who thinks that people should be able to do what they want. I'd call you a conservative Democrat. I need to find a neo-con to argue with. I have a friend who is one, but he's no fun to argue with anymore. He gave up, and has no valid points anymore.

    The 90s may not have helped, but Pres. Bush and the Republicans causes all of this. 1 term was more than enough, but Kerry didn't have the experience. If Gore ran in 2004, well he would have won. We'd be energy independent, and have no trouble. No war. Ohh, and if you are a war mongrel, I'd like to have a nice conversation with you too.

    Do no Conservatives frequent these boards??

    i can't wait to get some solar panels set up ps

    i think most people are ready for change, even the strongest conservative... hopefully people can become more moderate and meet over common sense instead of extremes

    As long as its not everybody. And the friend I was referring to, loves George Bush. Thinks he's been a great president. Bit of a war mongrel though... I like to argue with people against equal rights and common sense. Are you a Republican? :D. I think that EDNG is one, but there is no serious conversation there. lol. I dunno, I can't think of an obvious one, based on their posts or location...

    lol I would call myself a Republican LONG before I would ever claim to be a democrat... I'm the party system's worst fan

    My principles and ideal are pretty much liberal, but I am also 19 years old, so that's not usually unheard of.
