    Missionaries wouldn't take time to research the candidates and vote... much less go to their caucus meetings. They are way to busy for that.

    I don't remember voting ONCE while I was on my mission in Japan (and it didn't hurt my feelings one bit). And I really didn't shed any tears that I wouldn't be able to go to my caucus meetings, or be a delegate to the Republican Convention!

    That's just a silly red-herring.

    CMV has miss stated facts about missionaries and military . Missionaries have a higher calling to concentrate on during that phase of life. In the last general election only 2387 ballots where sent to military personnel. Not talking 100000 . That being said some adjustments have been made to help include these individuals

    People who can't handle compromise (not getting EVERYTHING they want) are radicals. Many CMV people sound like the radicals to me. They want EVERYTHING they want... or they are angry.

    I think compromise is a good thing. Compromise means neither side will get EVERYTHING they want. And neither side will get nothing they want. Only radicals expect to get everything they wanted.. and for the other side to get nothing they wanted.

    This was a good compromise IMO.

    You still get the same votes you had before. Nobody's being disenfranchised.


    I do think this bill will result in people and campaigns with the most money winning, and make it easier for incumbents to be assured of re-election (because they already have the party and the parties $$$ behind them, even national party $$$ if they need it). But the CMV people seem to be OK with that.
