Some may say its just a game. But it's about heroes and tribes, loyalty and devotion. It's our commitment and our passion, our battle and our belief.

Regardless, it's more the people who say they won't vote because they hate the presidential candidates. I was just pointing out there's more on the ballot than that...it's basically why I voted.
Personally, I don't really care about the whole "you can't complain if you voted/didn't vote." Everyone will complain. One of my friends isn't voting because she said she isn't informed enough...I told her it's not that hard to get informed at least about some things, and she was just apathetic about the whole thing. I disagree with her, but it's not my decision.
I am not voting
In the First Take election they are having right now. Stephen A Smith and Skip Bayless are arguing on First Take about who would be a better president.
They are the worst
Though I notice you have a computer or some form of internet access and time to waste online (as I do)... so all could not be so bad in the Oligarchy.
No one has it easy anymore but I think its really awesome that we actually get a say in our gov't. If that is patriotic BS, then I am fine with it.
I dont mean it to sound harsh, but I believe if you skip your consitutional right to vote you cant complain about the result.

I am not voting. I have given up the hope I once in the ability of the political process. I feel the system is too corrupted and favors only the rich. I also refuse to pretend that either of these candidates have a platform that I can support.
The tone in this thread is strangely similar to teen angst about how everything sucks and nobody understands me.
I am not. Early voting ended Saturday and I am in Baltimore with my mom who is undergoing emergency surgery. So I can't and right now it concerns me zero.

"The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good is not sufficient warrant." --John Stuart Mill
"The rule of law is to be preferred to the rule of man. We do not permit a man to rule but the law because a man rules in his own interest, and becomes a tyrant but the function of a rule is to be the guardian of the justice and, if justice then of equality." --Aristotle
Yes I can.but I believe if you skip your consitutional right to vote you cant complain about the result.

Nothing's going to change if we don't exercise our voice through voting.
I've never been affiliated with either party and have voted Dem, Rep, and third party.
Not voting is not showing up.
It's not stating an opinion.
It's not being heard when you say you don't like the choices you have.
If more people who don't like the choices we have actually voted against those choices, we'd be better off.
At least that's how I see it.
5% of the popular vote gets a 3rd party equal access to federal campaign grants in future elections. That's HUGE. If you don't like one of the "big 2" then go out and try to help bring a 3rd option into the conversation.
The only vote that "doesn't matter" is the one that isn't cast.

This also irks me. It is not a privilege to vote, it is a RIGHT.Originally Posted by USS Redskins

It makes me feel sad that people think that the sum total of their "voice" is a single digit on an election night news graphic.
