I Have No Desire To Ever Vote

I believe I will never have the urge to be a "proud American" and walk in to a voting place with patriotism in my heart and excitement. I have never cared for politics, and Trump and Hilary are a joke, literally. I only tuned in to this debate to get a few good laughs. Anyone else feel this overwhelming apathy for voting? I see a bunch of people happy they get the chance to vote, but I'm just there like _(ツ)_/

I was so excited when I turned 18 and could vote but there has been no one to vote for...I turned 18 10 years ago
I tried watching the debate but it just feels like 2 high school girls going at it.

I have never voted, nor do I ever expect to feel the impulse to do so.

Glad to hear not everyone is stoked to vote, which should be expected.

Personally if I wasn't a proud American I'd find somewhere else to live. A place and people who I'd be proud of. Myself? I bleed red white and blue. I love America and all those who share my great land!

Too bad this great land can't come up with a more desirable, honest presidential candidate.

I believe I'm very fortunate to have been born in the USA. I'm thankful for the opportunity, freedom and quality of life we have here. It isn't perfect but what country is?

I don't necessarily feel "proud" to be an American though. It's not a title I had to earn, or work to achieve. It was just the luck of the draw. Should I be "proud" because my ancestors decided to hop on a boat in Europe and sail over here 150 years ago?

I'm a lucky American. A thankful American. A mostly content American. Proud? Nah. Pride comes before the fall.

I hope you have NO desire to complain then either in the aftermath...

The only thing you'll hear me say is 'I told you they weren't worth the vote.' I do love where I am from though. I often consider how fortunate I am to have been born in America, but I'm native American and German. So I would have already been here or killed by the nazis otherwise.

I can express only regret this election-- feeling just
the need to vote for someone OTHER than the one
I feel would do the worse damage. That's no choice.

I agree completely with the OP. But then, who wouldn't?

I think you have to be really naive to vote in a general election anyway, but the two chumps on offer for the US electorate have the combined emotional and cognitive intelligence of a peevish 10 year old boy. You have to be a special kind of STUPID to bother with either of them.

I'm 56 and have only ever voted twice; one was for Brexit, the other was as a naive 18 year old anxious to exercise my newly-acquired adult privilege.

I think we've reached a point where the electorate can only effect real change by enough people NOT voting.
