    Oh wait...they refuse to even look at what the other party has to offer. They look at all the negatives and never the positives. All while ignoring their own negatives. (even though they say that they don't)
    Mitt Romney is not the right person for the job. I'm not crazy about Obama either and he's the other choice. Like most people in this country who will vote, the Republicans are the worst choice for anything these days. Don't forget, we'vw seen what the Republicans have to offer: we're trying to climb out of it now . . .

    Of course I will vote. It is the duty of every citizen to exercise his franchise in running the State.

    Re: Are you going to vote in the upcoming presidential election?

    I have voted in every election... state, local or national... since I was old enough to cast a ballot. I have voted for democrats and republicans, a couple of libertarians and independents, basing my votes on their position on issues and who I thought was best for the job. When faced by two people I believe unqualified and/or unsuitable, as in the 2008 presidential election, I have written the name of someone I believed was qualified and suitable.

    I don't give a damn if my one vote didn't matter in the overall scheme of things. It mattered to me. It still does.

    Are you going to vote in the presidential election?
    Maybe.I do not know yet.If there is a 3rd party candidate that comes close to my views then I will vote for him or her.Although Romney's choice of VP could infuriate me enough to vote for Obama.

    To a certain degree that is true assuming the voter is actually politically informed/literate and there is a candidate worthy of that voter's vote.When I say worthy of that voter's vote I am talking about a candidate the voter feels actually comes close to their views and has researched the candidate to make sure he or she is not a lying sack of **** merely claiming to believe something in order to get votes.

    Too many politically ignorant people voting.The politically ignorant, and party-tards. Here is a description of these group of ignorant voters.

    1. The politically ignorant voters would rather watch American idol, stupid ass reality shows,sports and other stuff than pay attention to politics.So all their information about the candidates comes from political ads and what ever the shows they watch may tell them and they get out and vote because stupid get and out and vote commercials tell them they should vote.

    2.Party-tard voters just don't give a crap if the guy they are voting for is ideologically the opposite of them just as long as that candidate is in the same party they are in and the media says that candidate is the front runner. Some of these party-tards are politically informed and some of them are not. Its just that the main goal of the party-tard is making sure his or her political party wins. Party-tards will accuse anyone not voting for the media picked candidates of throwing their vote away as a means of trying to guilt people into voting for their guy. Yes folks if you choose to vote for a 3rd party candidate you believe or heck even if you vote a democrat or republican candidate you believe in but is not picked by the media or just not vote for any candidate because you believe they all suck the party-tards will accuse you of throwing your vote away.




    If you don't believe in a candidate then do not vote for that candidate and just vote for a candidate you actually believe in. If you feel that none of those candidates are worthy of your vote then do not vote for any of those candidates, you can always leave that section of the ballot blank and vote in the other stuff like ballot questions, bond issues, other elections and so on. Don't vote for a candidate because someone told you that you should vote for that candidate.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I will vote because I understand what our forefathers did to make sure we had a voice as well as even if I vote for Obama in Kentucky knowing he will likely lose. Also, someday it would be nice to be on jury duty not to judge someone's fate but because you get paid to skip work and they have sandwiches.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    A silent voice can still be a voice. Don't believe me? Just ask Chancellor Katehi...



    Also most places don't normally go just by registered voters, but also by drivers licenses. I've yet to register to vote where I live and i've been called for jury duty twice. Though I never got selected to be on a jury because the people decided to plead guilty.
