It takes a fool to make a fool...

If you elect a fool you´ll have to live with it.

If ANYTHING is gonna change, WE need to change.

Attitude.

If we REALLY want inteligent people leading nations.
We need to ELECT inteligent people.

If a poor goes like, "Ahh it wont be better anyway, so why vote?".
Hes not really permitted to whine when all goes south.

If a student thinks its more important to study in electiontimes instead of reading up
on opponents, fine...But dont start whining after if it goes wrong..

If we want things to change, WE HAVE TO CHANGE...

I disagree, an election is just a vote on those that were chosen, not always by the people, but by the system itself.

Also, why do you think people who dont vote shouldn't whine. They are just as entitled to whine regardless of voting or not. You see, if someone allows the citizens to vote on them but have even the slightest doubt then that person should have never run for office. Honestly, its true, voting does not make any difference because either way, too many people are not properly represented. A country cannot expect obedience without proper representation. Personally, I don't vote because I know whoever is put in office will no doubt make things worse and I do not want to be told that it was the voters responsibility. So, when you go vote, you should realize that your condoning incompetence if both sides are presenting incompetence for the vote.

I'll continue to voice my opinion without voting until the day an incumbent removes him/herself due to healthy self inconfidence. Anyone running should understand their responsibilities and be able to maintain economic growth and confidence and constitutional rights as well as our freedoms like privacy.

It´s OUR goddamn responsibility to KNOW who we are voting for.
Thats all..

And yes, if you dont like the ones representing, dont vote.
But if you have ideas about the poilitcs involved regarding
YOUR wing, SPEAK up. Dont sit quiet and whine.

The ones i said shouldnt whine is the ones not
bothering to even look up info..The ones that
dont care at all. Who still, after the elections
are done, start to whine...
