Once again

Posted 21 October 2008 - 10:43 AM

Both major cantidates suck. McCain is a Democrat in republican clothes and Obama is a communist in democrat clothes. It would appear that the only choice left is to vote libertarian.

So another year where I toss my vote away but at least I am not voting against something I am voting for someone

Why not do what I do, and many others in this country, and just not waste the time or the vote on someone that you don't feel deserves it? One of these years (maybe not during our lifetimes but still) there will finally be someone worth voting for, and at that point I'm sure the polls will take in more actual votes than ever before.

However, if you don't vote you forfeit all right to bitch and complain.

Boy do I have to disagree here, McCain is Bush in a different body. McCain is nowhere near a Democrat and since I'm a staunch Democrat I find that statement rather offensive.

Obama a Communist?! You've really got to be kidding me. The current Administration and the current Republican candidate are more Communist than Obama.

If you didn't vote out of apathy, then yes. If you didn't vote because you dislike all candidates equally then you still have the right to complain.

NO. If you do not exercise one of your constitutional rights its your own damn fault. Countless people have died so that you can express your opinion freely. If you don't like either major party candidate vote for Bob Barr. Shit, even if you don't mark something for the national election, vote in whatever is being done locally or state wide.

Actually => Listens to hell freeze over <= I agree with KYA. If you don't vote you lose all right to bitch about anything that happens or the outcome.

That may be true, but some of us will complain anyway whether we have a right to or not.

I plan to complain plenty.

It is rare that I can vote for someone. Let's be fair, they're all politicians; they're lying because their lips are moving. However, lacking the ability to back someone doesn't mean you can't try to push the other guy down the stairs. It's still a reasonable option to vote against worst of evils.

This spin is unique for me, there's no question of who I shall vote for.

Elections aren't shouldn't be about voting for the least horrible option.

and just because I dislike hearing that overused second point of yours, countless people also died so that you, I, and everyone else couldn't have the right to vote about anything.

i have no problem with people who are informed about the candidates choosing to abstain from voting.

i however have a problem with people being uninformed and voting or not voting. i just want people to have some initiative and make choices for themselves.

however, it's also easy to remember that voting is for a lot more than just the presidential election, it's easy to abstain from that vote and continue to vote on state and local elections as well as bond issues if you believe their is an important choice to be made.
