    No, this thread is about "Do you vote". This thread is not about the complexities of voting vs not voting. As such by talking about those complexities we are derailing this thread.

    From the OP:

    "Curiosity kills - do you vote?

    Do you care to explain why or why not?

    And you explained it right? Lets leave so that others may state thier opinions without cluttering up thier responses with our debate on our views of why a person should or should not vote.

    When you learn to not be rude I'll start responding to you again. In the mean time I'll continue as I have been.

    You mean claiming you are not gonna reply to me all the while still replying?

    I make total sense and if you wish to add not replying to me on your not do list? Knock yourself out

    As much as I detest feeling forced to choose between the "lesser of two evils", I don't want the "greater of two evils" to win, either. I don't automatically disagree that saying nothing is saying something, and I have done that at times, but there are also other times that you need to cut your losses and take what you can get. It sucks, but it is.

    I don't live in a swing state (It hasn't been a swing state in my voting lifetime, although it was one once). Therefore, no matter what I do, the president will be decided by others, and unfortunately, most of them aren't very bright.

    There is a very strongly held myth in this country that every vote counts. Nothing could be further from the truth. Almost nobody's vote actually counts.
