America’s got an STD no matter how you look at it, no matter what you do, and the election process allows for a choice: retain the current one or try a new one. If you refrain from voting then you have less right to bitch about the symptoms, because you’re either in denial about having it, you don’t think it makes a difference, or you don’t care. Regardless of which STD you choose though, if you make a choice for yourself then I can appreciate that you want to weigh in on how to deal with it afterwards.
People that don’t think they have a choice aren’t thinking, or they don’t want to admit they lack the balls to exercise their second amendment right. If you think the system is so fucked up that there’s no point in choosing which STD you want for your country, there’s always the option of purging it, which is violent, messy, dangerous, and possibly fatal. But just because you’re to much of a pussy to take that route, or you don’t think it’s bad enough to merit such drastic action, doesn’t mean it’s not on the table.
If I choose which STD I prefer though, and I made an attempt to get the one I prefer, I get more of a say in how its dealt with. I can bitch and criticize if I want to. If you want to bitch, then at least vote. The difference may be minimal or even seem nonexistent, but I bet not voting doesn’t do a goddamn thing either. Exercise your second amendment rights, or vote.
“I hope some of you reconsider your decision to not vote. Every vote counts. And those of you who do decide to vote, I hope you’ve taken some time to really get some information about the issues at hand.”
