I am not voting today

Voting sanctions the current political situation. Under American law I am not even granted equal rights as a native born citizen. Therefore, I choose not to participate in the farce that politics has become.

However, since I did vote in the last Presidential election, I will continue to claim bitching rights about Obama.

You choose not to, or aren't allowed?

You won't need to bitch about Obama for much longer. When the tea party takes control of Congress, the entire country will be a utopia within a week.

Are you implying that some people shouldn't vote - maybe the author of this thread?

Re: I am not voting today

I just wish there was a way for a protest no-vote to be distinguished from an apathetic or lazy no-vote (other than a third party vote).

That's pretty cool. I wish I could vote none of the above.
By the way, i'm not voting today either. Not in protest mind you, but being in NJ there is nothing to vote for today.

Yes. Some people shouldn't vote.

No. I was not speaking to the original poster.

Hogwash. We have lived through 2 years of utopia. Hope and change.

Hey, there isn't a rule that Utopias can't get better.

Good plan. It will help to ensure that your people never get equal rights.

I agree. There are some that shouldn't vote.

After extensive calculations I've come to the conclusion that 84.3% of the posters on this forum shouldn't vote. They endanger The Republic by doing so.

Lucky girl. Its a bullshit, outdated institution and more people should exclude themselves from it.

(I would say it should be banned for everyone but as I support almost nothing ever being banned I'll just say it should die painfully on its own)
