Not voting lets those who DO vote decide. Pretty lame to encourage people not to be a part of the decision making process. Like the saying goes, Don't vote? Don't bitch.
You seem to be under the impression that your vote matters. The electoral college chooses the president. You have no power.
Change can only come through drastic measures at this point and playing the game is hardly a drastic measure. I understand people fear change, because they fear the unknown. However, now is the time to think not just about ourselves, but our future....our children's future....heck! their children's future.

So again, you already don't vote! Well it doesn't count for much when you do.
Then who elected all those people in DC? Was it the NWO 1%?
Look, I share your frustration but abandoning the only system we have doesn’t solve the problem. Sitting it out solves NOTHING.
What's your solution?

I guess if not voting was a great thing, then MTV is definitely evil, back when voting numbers were way low amongst young people, they started the "rock the vote" campaign.edit on Fri, 03 Aug 2012 01:45:44 -0500 by TKDRL because: (no reason given)
