    Not voting is plenty of a voice. It says I don't like the choices you put in front of me.

    Anyone who is not listening to Mark Steyn ridiculing the inauguration and it's participants, live at this very moment is missing some great humor!

    Sure, silence speaks volumes.

    I think it is a waste of money. Decadence at it's finest.

    I approve of all government money being stopped spending on anything for show. This includes Nascar/Football fly-overs, Blue Angel/Thunderbird exhibitions, parades, etc.

    If some fool wants to pay them for it, so be it. But tax dollars should not be spent on anything other than nuts and bolts tangible items that show a return for the expense.

    Nonsense. The peaceful transfer of power is the most important part of our Govt.
    Inaugurations are underplayed, given the massive importance of the ceremony.
    As far as spending, most of it is from donations.

    The peaceful transfer of power. Given that in many parts of the world, transfers of power often involve revolution or civil war, it is significant.

    What would be the result if we had no more inaugurations, only a dictator for life?

    So we need a ceremony because why? So a new president is in office without a war. I don't see why that needs to be celebrated.
