Uh, the replies Ive been getting here are not enthusiastic sounding regarding voting.

Just so you know, I actually favor involuntary institutionalization of most people with severe mental illnesses. I think the current system does not work except for those with "worried well" type psychiatric issues, mild depression, mild anxiety, etc.

It has been my experience that most with severe forms of mental illness contribute nothing to society, yet take take take from society. Many are on SS disability or on welfare and live off of entitlements and lay around and post on forums such as these and watch daytime TV. And never get better.

I say if they want to live off the taxpayer longterm and do jack, make'em live in state run institutions. I bet a bunch would start taking their meds more, all of a sudden.


> I dont' think anyone here is advocating that anyone not vote. As for voting, I always vote-- and so do others.
> I see you criticizing the "mentally ill" as some sort of lump to do something-- and assuming they don't do anything-- but:
> 1. why do you keep saying 'you people" and 'these people"-- when in fact on your own account, you are one of "them"-- and it should be "we" and us"-- ?
> 2. what are you doing to mobilize "the" mentally ill? Coming to a support board and criticizing "you people" as "losers" etc-- assuming "these people" don't vote-- and then blaming, rather than trying to understand-- especially understanding in order to change?
> 3. and if people here don't respond in the way you like, telling us that we're depressing and you will check in to see how badly we're doing a few years from now?
> It seems like you yourself are the one who has some issues you wanted to raise about how the NRA wants to institutionalize YOU. Since you have done nothing to make me care that much about you, and I pesonally am worried much more about other issues-- and you've done nothing to apprise me of any threat to my freedom by the NRA-- why should I do much except dismiss your criticisms as from an unkind member of the NRA, known to be unsympathetic to weak-willed "losers" such as myself? We all know the type of "red blooded Americans" that the NRA tends to favor.
> Anyway, what are your struggles, other than fear of gun control and fear of institutionalization? Maybe you could use some support for them. And maybe over time you could let us in on the dangers we face and your ideas for solving them.
