I am one of the few who asked were the "None of the Above" selection was. Forgetting for a moment why the politicians removed it. "None of the Above" probably would be winning most of elections now-a-days.

I did not vote for him. I voted to keep the system split. Dem's had congress so I could not do it. Never let one group control a thing. They always screw it up, resulting in the tax payers getting screwed. I call it "Bullies in the sand box".
