    I don't know. I'm 21 now and won't vote at all. (to many things in that fine print) Hey, as long as the train's roll and I can support my family then that's all I need.

    Good, I am a disabled Vietnam vet charles, used to a hippy and was against that war until I got there., I have had 2 liver and a kidney transplants since.

    It makes me feel good to know I and my fellow vets have done such an out standing job in the last 40 years that Democracy and the Bill of rights ard so safe that you can play with frigg'n toys and feel no need to vote.

    Fine print? Yes I agree, 56,000 dies over there and 2000 plus now in Iraq, how is that for fine print?

    TOOT toot, her she comes thru the tunnle.
    By the way you can vote at 18.

    I voted the first time in Nam with an absontee ballot, it was the proudest day of my life. Voted for McGovern.

    The Gauge is not a political forum - there are plenty of places on the net to talk politics. The Gauge is for the discussion of model railroading and related activities.
