why are 25% of you not voting?

listen ladies, i know election time is a pain, to say the least. and i know that many of you feel that youre one vote wont change anything, and maybe it wont. let me tell you why i vote. i vote because of what women went through to GET us the right to vote, i vote out of respect for hte women who were beaten, incarcerated, and publicly HUMILIATED to FIGHT for our right to vote. the womens rights movement was no joke people, and i think its pretty messed up that youll sit around and do nothing after all those women went through for YOU. get off your ass and go to the polls

  • Some people don't vote because they don't want to be responsible for their candidate's behavior if he wins.

  • I have a ton of kids and a messy house and a bunch of stuff to do today. Oh and some of my kids are sick too!! I still got up and voted first thing this morning, because it means so much to me and our children's future depends on it.

  • I think that a woman, especially, who doesn't vote, is basically giving all those brave women who fought for this right a slap in the face.

     Do you have any idea what they went through just so you all could have a voice in this country?
