I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't get around to sending in my voter registration form¹ until this morning. Naturally, I sent it certified to guarantee that it's received.

It might have been easier to send it in if I hadn't accidentally almost sent the FVAP the FWAB instead of the FPCA. (What the hell do those mean again? Only two out of those three are forms)

And why the hell do I have to send it to Oregon, anyway? I don't live there and I can't vote there.

1. Ahem, I don't mean "Voter Registration Form", I mean the Federal Postcard Application (FPCA). Even when you spell out the damned acronyms, they're meaningless.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but...these people can't even run an election every four years, and you want them involved in every medical decision from the cradle to the grave?
I wasn't talking about health care. I was talking about registering to vote.

That being said, I'm not aware of a single national health care scheme in any country where the government is "involved in every medical decision from the cradle to the grave". I'm also not aware of any US Presidential candidate advocating that, either.
