    Sure does in mine.
    I don't find them to be crappy Americans... in fact, I know many many very good Americans who don't vote

    with the right to vote comes the equal and opposite right.. a right to refrain from voting.

    not something i choose to do, but meh... I don't mind that they don't vote.

    No, it doesn't. There are millions of people who get up at 6 AM in the morning, drag their asses out of bed, hurry to get the kids ready for school and pack their lunches, rush to get them out the door in time, drop them off at school, hurry to work to put in their 8-10 hour days, hurry back to pick up the kids, get dinner on the table, do the laundry, help with homework, hold their sick kids heads over toilet bowls, take 'em to the ER for owies, etc., etc., etc., etc. and finally fall into bed at 11 PM exhausted.

    They don't have time to sort the issues, watch the debates, become knowledgeable. It frustrates me, but I can appreciate their pain.

    BTW, I put up a thread you might be interested in. (No one else seems to be. Ha!) But it supports your thoughts about a civilian review board.

    The guy who doesn't even bother to vote?


    The person who only votes for a candidate based upon 'party affiliation'. The uninformed is the most dangerous voter, followed closely by the apathetic non-voters who don't even give a crap enough to educate themselves and at least VOTE for a third party candidate so that maybe at SOME POINT - third parties will be given a snow balls chance in hell to try and change things if people would pull the stick out of their rear ends and put their vote where their mouth is.

    As long as we have the two parties (and I use two = separate very loosely!) we are going to be stuck in the ****hole of the same ****, different election year here in the U.S

    Sorry, but Democrats/Republicans - there is no difference and if tonights 'debate' doesn't prove that, I don't know what will.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    I don't hate any voter. We all see things from our own perspective, and vote based on our values and life views. Why hate someone who is voting the way he thinks best, regardless of whether or not he agrees with me?

    I prefer to augment my vote by calling it the "selfish vote."

    People whose vote is solely based on what kind of personal benefit (ObamaPhones, Foo Stamps, etc.) they can get, versus people who realize that their vote might not benefit them personally, but represents what's best for the country.

    I'm so sorry, but not hating anyone is not an available option.

    I hear this a lot -- do you people who fling that poo stop and think that voting for a guy who promises tax cuts for the rich is just as selfish when a rich voter does it?
