I used to feel the same way. I have voted every time that there's been an election, national and local. I plan on continuing to vote. Who for, I'm not sure yet. With that being said, voting or not voting is a right not a requirement. If somebody feels that they don't wanna vote (because they don't wanna support any of those douches) and is a tax paying citizen of these United States I can respect that. Thousands of men and women have fought and died to give them that freedom.

You're right. It's "the right" to vote. Not a requirement. But it's also the right to vote on legislation, amendments, ect, not just officials. So if you don't go to THE PLACE to cast your ballot, don't fuss. Same as when Hillary takes the guns but somebody sat back and didn't cast a vote to try to stop it, don't bitch, don't fight, just hand em over.

This is exactly what Hillary and the liberals want you to do. The less opposition they have while slowly taking away our freedoms the faster they can do it...write in Emusmacker. You have that right as well if you don't like any candidate. Choosing not to exercise a right is the fastest way to lose it. If you sit idle and allow her to get elected you choose to forfeit your right to complain about her getting elected.

Like uncle Sandy says, If you don't vote, you got no say!

I still don't see how that didn't come to blows. I've never seen 2 grown men arguing that heated and loud while drinking and someone not throw a punch. I mean nose to nose and hat to feather close.

Just spouting off with my disgust with all of them!

But, again I pay their salary.......I can complain.

And JB, I might just do that........I have written in candidates in the past.

Heck, I may throw my ballot for the Clinton.........I have successfully voted for every loosing president.

That's fine. I'm glad you chose to exercise your first amendment right. Of course, choosing to not exercise your 15th puts your credibility and opinion on Emusmacker's level.

Choose wisely.

I can look past that. It's got nothing to do with compromising. Those that refuse to cast a vote may get Hillary, and it will be their fault. Americans who willingly give up a right because they're too damn stupid to exercise it deserve exactly what they get.
