"It's every citizen's privilege and I would argue, duty, to vote."

I guess 2 wrongs make a right? It is every citizen's RIGHT to vote (or not vote if they choose). I would argue it is everyone's duty to properly educate themselves and then vote.

All this crap about getting out the vote is non-sense. Most people don't know anything other than R or D. I think all ballets should be fill in the blank, if you can't at least write your candidates name from memory, your vote shouldn't count for that race. Harsh? Not as harsh as these jerks voting to take my money so they can sit on their butts!

Stupid politicians and mindless followers.

Ah, I feel better now. Go exercise or something people.

This is the sort of low intelligence I expect from someone voting along party lines. This is why I can't get behind any candidate. The ignorance, insults and attempts to bring everything down to a personal attack is tired and I'm excusing myself from this thread.

If you'd like to continue personal attacks, do it in the appropriate place and take it to private mail.

BMB, it's gonna get awfully lonely standing there on the corner waiting for the perfect candidate to come along on his or her white horse and sweep you off your feet before you give him or her your vote.
Good luck with the wait and I hope it's good for both of you. I didn't mean to kick sand in your VaJayJay and you go girl.
Just one more thing, so you let South-park influence how you vote???

Please spare me the speech.

Nowhere in the bill of rights does it read that thou shall vote. I have not been interested in any candidate since Harry Browne ran in 2000. I'm fiscally conservative and socially liberal. Both parties are counter to that and no independent seems to truly represent those ideals. And yes, the tea party had potential in the beginning, but they lost me when they picked Sarah Palin as their mouthpiece.

The fact that you believe the mere act of voting when the choices are so incredibly poor perplexes me. My vote is to be earned by a worthy candidate, not the lesser of two evils.

Brewmasterbill, I find it hard to believe that a grown man would say he doesn't know how to make up his mind on something as important as Voting.
I suggest you read the Bill of Rights and see just what you can lose by not voting.
I also suggest you read the history of some of the places who lost their right to vote. Nazi Germany and Cuba come to mind as good startign places.

I see your point, KJ, but my problem is, I don't know who the best/worst candidate is in my eyes. Have you ever seen the South Park episode "Vote or Die"? That's pretty much how I view it. If you haven't, good ol' wikipedia has an entry for that episode. heh.

While I mostly agree that the choices are not so good I cannot accept the repercussion (not voting) of the worst candidate winning.

As for whinning, I live in STEELER NATION and we whine all the time, even when the Steelers win the Super Bowl we whine that they left their opponents alive on the field.

That's not how it works. I can certainly bitch after the fact. I'm bitching before the fact that they're all a bunch of clowns.

If you give up your right to vote then you have no cause to whine afterwards. I'd rather vote in the person that most closely represents my my beliefs than stand by while those that are the pole opposite of my beliefs are elected into office.

As usual, the candidates suck and largely do not represent my core principles. I'll not be wasting my time at the polls.

The most important exercise you can do this time of year is to exercise your right to vote.

"Vote early and vote often"
Here in Arkansas that is a given.

Yeah, there are a few candidates that I would like to throw darts (and a few other things) at. But I will be voiting for sure. Can't wait to have a new governor here in Michigan!

It's getting harder and harder to vote now a days, almost would be easier to just throw darts at the candidates and pick them that way.

I agree. It's every citizen's privilege and I would argue, duty, to vote. Exercise your freedom of conscience.
