  • Sounds like you need new friends.


    Yes, I am going to vote and I will encourage all of my friends and neighbors to vote as well, regardless of their choice of candidates.  Local elections have a large impact on your community and your vote does matter, especially in local elections.  Because of the electoral college, a vote for a president might not make as much difference.  JMO.

  • I think people who don't vote ate total assholes with the excption of people like IhartU who consiously choose not to vote as part of a viseral revolution. I can totally dig that.

    I don't vote cause i am afraid of "conservatives" taking over, i vote cause i want to share my opinion and because it's my civic duty.

    When i was s kid my mom had a pin/button that said "If you don't vote, you can't bitch".

  • LOL! I thought it was funny too! OP, if you HONESTLY feel this way..conservatives and cross burning fears...then maybe you shouldn't vote. Voting is a huge responsiblity requiring a measure of basic street smarts and the ability to research the candidates and the issues. It sounds like you are just going with the propaganda.

    I always vote. It is my duty and my PRIVILEDGE as a citizen. Besides, my military hubby is willing to spill his blood for me and you to have that priviledge...know way I am letting him down!

  • Voting is very important if you care about your country. You have to vote for the people with values and if they dont get voted in at least you can say you did your part. If you sit back and do nothing anyone could get voted in and your votes do count!
