it's a funny thing, going to the polling place. there are people from all camps set up with signs, picnic stuff, all waving and smiling. as absolutely brutal and dividing as politics has become over the past couple of years, i was impressed everything was so civil.
then some idiot almost plowed into my jeep speeding through the parking lot......

yes and unfortunately both our candidates for governor are complete idiots and have no interest in anything that doesn't benefit them and there pockets. This election really sucks, it's going to be like watching the fall of Rome. I've lived a lot of places and I can say Vermont is a great state to live in and I'm proud to live here but I think that's going to be a thing of the past with all these idiots in office, I hate politics.

Please vote... if you know the candidate you're voting for. Don't vote simply because your democrat or republican rep. is a bonehead or cause someone else told you to. Get informed... then exercise your right.

sadly I'm forced to wait until after work to battle the leagues of morons at the polls. the biggest issue with living in a different city than you work in.

I vote for the one with the better haircut. is that okay?

Its okay, in Texas we have a gov. who does literally nothing...then up against him is a nut job that will do nothing. Sadly people will always serve themselves first, so we will never have a truely honest politician. If you are willing to accept this and move on you'll be better for it. Do as I do pick the "lesser of two evils" in your mind, and vote for him.

Thumbs down

I donít vote.

I have not believed in this countryís political system for a long time. I guess from about the time I learned how it really works. It is not the idealized fantasy they teach in school.

I am not going to vote for the lesser of two evils. That is not right.

Even if there were a good candidate to vote for they would be a scoundrel by the time they left office.

We do not need people sitting around all day thinking up new laws. We need a group of people to repeal all of these ludicrous laws we already have in place.

This country is ruined. ...

All right Iím ready.

Nope. All the candidates that I had to choose were pathetic. Some say just suck it up and vote for the lesser of 2 evils, but all I see that as is a temporary feel good fix, not the right one. And you know what they say, If you can't do something right, then don't do it at all. Sure not every one will agree with that, but I stand by my decision. I probably should have gone out, voted for any referendums or what ever they are called, but I'll admit, I forgot about those till just now.

It's your right NOT to vote just as much as it is TO vote. What people think about it personally doesn't matter.

Normally I do vote. This has been the first election(since I could legally vote) that I have not voted in.

Go vote and play the system! Straight party ticket is a cop out, learn who is listening to their constituancy and vote to which best suits your views.

Don't just say you don't beleive in the political system, it's the only one we got. So either play the game OR NEVER BITCH ABOUT ANYTHING POLITICAL!!!!

I have the right to, Non voters do not.

So you are saying that even though I am normally a politically active person, some one who up until now voted at every election, some one who has sent letters to my congressmen, and tried to be involved as i can with the political system, cant have an opinion because i chose to sit this one out due having a choice of idiotic candidates to whom there was no lesser evil? What about people who can not legally vote? whether it be due to age, citizenship, or other circumstances, are they not allowed to have a political opinion? How about the people who simply did not have the time?

I'll vote when there is someone worth voting for. Until then, I'm not supporting candidates who do not support my views (which is exactly what you do every time you vote for the 'one that sucks least').

I can also bitch and moan all I like about the lack of quality candidates from both major parties, and the little ones as well. Its consistent with my not voting. YOU cannot bitch and moan about that if you voted for someone...you clearly thought someone was worth putting in office to vote for them. I cannot complain that candidate X would have been better than candidate Y...I didn't vote, so that is not consistent. YOU on the other hand can...as you did vote.

Regardless, this attitude that its OK to vote for the one who sucks the least is sickening. Hitler or Stalin...go vote. No we aren't that bad, this is highly theoretical, but if you had the choice of voting for one of these guys, which would you choose? Personally, I'm not having my support for one of those guys on my conscious. Same with these rejects who have been running for office lately...I'm not supporting them in any way.

It is your right not to vote as much as it is your right to vote.
