Some people say, “If you’re old enough to join the Army, you should be able to vote, as well”. I feel exactly the opposite: If you’re already putting your life on the line for your country, why add the stress of voting to your plate?

The earliest parties in the United States were the Federalist party and the Anti-Federalist party. The Anti-Federalists splintered off from the Federalists after a disagreement over whether or not to call themselves “Federalists”.

The original purpose of the U.S. Census was to estimate population numbers for the creation of congressional districts. The stuff about your age, gender, race, religion, employment status and income was added at the direction of the Illuminati and Big Foot.

In the United States, election day is on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. The congressman who came up with this was, ironically, the oldest of his siblings who were younger than their oldest sister.
