    Re: Do you vote? (poll)

    If you are old enough to vote and do not? Well get the hell outta here and also stop crying all over the real world and internet. In other words: dont' vote? Why in the hell are you trying to debate politics. Sure:you got a right to not vote and I got the right to tell you to shut the hell up.

    This is so very true and we need to make sure we keep voting alive. How much you wanna bet all those that do not vote if the right was taking away would be very pissed off.

    People DIED for our rights to vote and to not vote and then being all mad with no change is made? Well you are in part to blame if you do not vote.

    Lets put it this way. I would rather vote for someone who was honest and honorable that doesn't hold any of my views than vote for someone who was dishonest and dishonorable that holds all of my views.

    I know that no politician will ever be perfect. That is way too much to ask for. But I don't think that it is too much to ask for a politician that is reasonably perfect. To me a "reasonably perfect" candidate would be someone who is honest, honorable, doesn't flip flop and will stick to his/her guns unless shown that they are in the wrong...and most important of all...one that will listen to The People and not The Money....is that really too much to ask for in someone who is suppose to represent the People?

    And you are even more to blame if you did vote for the person that contributed to our country to having all the problems we currently have. And voting for the loser of an election so no change is made also is the same as not voting at all. And there is something else that our soldiers fought and DIED for besides the right to vote and its even more important...the right to choose.

    So, get off your high horse and use that brain of yours to actually think about what other people are saying.

    Re: Do you vote? (poll)

    Financial activity of 2008 presidential candidates and national party convention committees increased 80% in receipts over the 2004 presidential election, totaling more than $1.8 billion. Between PACs, 527s and "soft money" from corporations, unions and wealthy donors and their funds for political advertising they spent more than $400 million in the 2008 federal elections. It sounds like money and organized groups are more responsible for electing our officials.

    I wonder out of the 131 million people or 64% voter turnout reported in the 2008 U.S. presidential elections how many are actually satisfied with their choice? We have a two party system that has adopted extremist, ideological views on the issues, which have polarized and separated the people. The majority of them whose main goal is to achieve and maintain a seat of power, so they can mismanage our taxpayer dollars and blame us for the debt. They're individuals whose alliance is based on their own self interests and group sponsors, not the citizens they're suppose to represent. But it's insisted we vote and agree with this bung-holed system? It's my duty as a citizen to abstain, object and speak up for change. Get the excess funds and special interests influence out of politics first, then let's see if anyone appears worth voting for. Not somebody who is a Pollyanna socialist or a war monger that wants to play "whack-a-mole" with every person of interest.

    I do not think so! I vote for who I think will do the best job and gives a crap about the issues that are important to me and just because they may lose it is MY fault? The hell it is! You best check yourself and use your brain before posting crap like this bud.

    1: The best job at corruption?
    2: The only "issues" that politicians now adays care about is what either is in their pockets or what can be put into their pockets.
    3: Yes it is your fault. Remember, its your duty to vote right? That comes with the responsibility to choose the correct person and if you chose the loser then that is your fault for not picking the winner.
    4: Next time you feel like degrading those that don't vote check your own self before posting that crap "bud".
    5: Notice you didn't actually try to dispute anything else that I said. Wise move.

    Which of the presidential candidates do you consider to be honest and honorable?

    None. Which is why I will not be voting for anyone that is currently running.
