my thoughts exactly. If you don't like the candidates go write your choice on the ballot, one more spoiled ballot shows that the choices are shit. but if you dont vote and were eligable(sp?) to, I dont want to hear a fucking word from you about it....you chose not to make a choice.

Scrambled eggs? YES PLEASE!

 

i'll second that one.

 

why bother voting? one persons vote really wont do shit. sounds cliche? sorry, its true in the vast majority of cases.

 

besides, who wants to vote when you can just bitch about stuff? its so much more.......fulfilling.

Yoy stupid fucks who say that one vote doesnt make a difference. Well its true. But think of it this way. If all the democrats that say that would of voted for gore, bush would not be in office now. Its like saying dumping toxic waste into the local wetlands not gonna make a difference. Well, one person doing it probably wont make a noticible difference to you but if everyone does it then it does. Use your head peoples, if everyone votes, then it does make a difference, and if you arnt voting then its making no difference. I wish they would let 16 year olds vote. Cause i would right now.

your one vote by itself doesn't count, but when your vote coupled with the thousands upon thousands of votes that belong to the other folks that think like you, it definately does. what's better - 20% of the population voting for the guy who is going to lead the other 80%, or 100% voting for who is going to lead them?

 

you gotta realise that your presidents are voted in by the oldest section of your population. your grandma is putting your president in power. how is your country supposed to move forward if it's most powerful people wear diapers?
