Default Is this happening elsewhere?

Or just because NH has "first in the nation" voting status? College kids keep showing up at my door asking who I'm voting for and trying to convince me to vote for their candidate (usually Kerry). During the primary, we kept getting phone calls and visits asking us to vote for Dean...so many in fact that we started checking under our beds to make sure there weren't Dean supporters waiting to accost us...

that is no ones business but yours. If someone showed up at my door like that I would let my dog bite them. He doesn't like most people.

That doesn't really happen in my part of Michy. We get just a lot of mailing type stuff. I think maybe that is because Michy is pretty much for sure Republican in the north and for sure Democratic in the south, so there'* not much to really be decided.

I've been acosted by these brainwashed chimps before (usually around the campus area), if you really want to get them going tell them you don't vote. Wow! Great conversations there!
Maybe if you got some USSR flags, spoke with a Russian accent and recalled the greatness of some of Stalin'* purges it would get around to stay away from your neighborhood.

My area is in the south and is mostly Republican. You can't really stereotype people based on what part of the country they live in.

I was talking North Mich vs South Mich, but no you can't stereotype people, that'* not what I meant. But overall, you can predict which part will vote which way, and that'* how it goes here.

Wow I agree that it'* none of their business, and some kids that showed up the other day knew my name somehow, which threw me off. So yeah...I try to mess with their heads...but I'm not nearly as creative as you are, Seth

Thats why you have a box of old candy by the door, and try to sell it to them when they come by for 5$ each.
