No actually i plan to actually have a plan way before i go into vote. If everything goes as i choose, i wont have to think about much of anything because i will be prepared and organized. People who have no clue go in and think about it in the booth.

Ok how about this. Tell me how romney will fix the economy and then explain how ending the fed and useless wars wont, tell me that and then i will very honestly tell you what i evaluate when initially deciding how to vote.

Just to be clear....Voting is a Right. I choose not to Vote. There for I still have my Constitutional right to tell the Voters they are stupid. Sorry, but that is the truth of the matter.

Ross Perot put the nail in the Coffin for our System of Government. Go check your History. You honestly think that every President has been Republican or Democrat?? Or is that all YOU know.

And the Statement in my Sig still stands. If RP is on the ballot as a Republican or Democrat than we still have a choice. If he is not and the ONLY choice is Romney or Obama than........you guessed it, we dont.

Don't just criticize others without telling us


I'll do whatever I damn well please. I can't tell if you pissed me off so benefit of the doubt and such.

I vote for me. What benefits myself. Same as everyone else should be doing.

I will vote for Mittens because I believe that a restrained evil is better than unrestrained evil. If he wants a second term, he will keep his ass somewhat in line. Obama will just do whatever the hell he wants. Who cares? Second term for Obama is a nightmare of spending, continued war and essentially everything we disliked about Bush. Romney will have to stay somewhat in check, and then perhaps in four years we will find someone actually worthy of the position.

Now you know Romney!!!! You think he is the lesser of two evils?? Your privilege is revoked as a Voter now. If the shoe fits.....you know the rest.

when you vote in a democracy you give power over you to someone else. you elect them to rule over you, to lead you and to do things in your name and to represent you.

what they do in your name you are responsible.

when you don't vote, no one has authority over you and whatever actions they take will not be in your name or with your approval.

which do you think is the better option, and which do you think will allow you to sleep better at night, if you have any conscience at all.

I think he is more restrained if he wants a second term. I think he is a bookmark between bad and there has to be someone better. But you don't vote.

We KNOW what Obama will do, second term.

We have some "hope" that Romney will be better.

He couldn't be worse.

We were never a democracy. We are a Republic. There is a difference. Dont read School History Books, dont listen to the News, and for sure dont listen to your next door neighbor. Your next door neighbor cares about getting there Meds, Facebook, Twitter, and before that they used to care about there Houses and Kids. Look at the divorce rate.

This situation we live in doesnt just include "Voting" for a lesser evil. This is a systematic dumbing down of a complete Society. And it has been going on for a long time.

First off voting is a privilege. You don't always have the option of voting. Illegal aliens and inmates cannot vote although the democrats are working hard to push legislation that allows that sort of thing to happen.

You have a right to tell voters they are stupid but you have no right to complain about anything the government is doing since you didn't partake in the system you seem to hate. Which still doesn't make any sense to me why one wouldn't vote...Even if only for a write-in

He cant be worse?? I thought Obama couldnt be worse than Bush?? Same ol Same ol different election. I wonder who will be on the Cabinet when Romney is elected.

Obama really brought on what they were hoping for, total apathy. Guarantee that Romney has some of the same players as Bush. Than what.

WTF? This makes no sense and has little to do with the topic, but otherwise how else am I suppose to figure out what is going on in the world of politics? Point me to a truly independent source of information and please don't say ATS....

So now its about the Law.

Did you know that DEAD PEOPLE, yes Dead People, vote all the time?? Or is that a Conspiracy Theory. Is it Ok for Dead People to vote (which would cancel my Legal Vote by the way) but its not OK for the Inmates to Vote??

Or are you just now reverting to Law Quotes.

There is a large population that warned that Obama was going to be worse.

Remember?

We were called racists.

You really think you have power over 99% of the rest of the population? I really don't understand what you are talking about anymore. Name me an instance where not voting helped you personally.

The name calling is part of the plan. If your not in the Majority than your in the Minority. Thumb this up and post on my Facebook. Hopefully I will get more Friends because of it.

Ron Paul was not the Internet King, Obama was. And the Large Population that was speaking against Obama apparently was not that LARGE!!!

You are beginning to derail this thread into something I do not want this thread to talk about. This is about your voice in the government if you feel you have no voice don't vote. I'm not stopping you, I'm just saying how silly the notion is that you want to rebel and try to get as many people on your side as possible effectively becoming your own powerhouse in the process...Until the cycle continues.
