"If you don't vote, you don't have a right to complain about the way the country is being run. It doesn't really matter who you vote for, because if your guy won, and you are dissatisfied, you can say, 'Hey, I voted for you, but you aren't living up to my expectations.' If your party lost, you could say, 'Hey, you've got this country in a mess. I didn't vote for you. So we're going to vote you out and get someone better in there.'"
I don't think he realized we'd get to a point where the country was screwed no matter which party gets elected tomorrow.
No matter who gets voted into office tomorrow, we lose.
The ol' mighty U. S. of A. is in a downward spiral. I truly believe that.
Do you want Bush, who will open the trapdoor beneath our feet, or
do you want Kerry, who will try to prop it closed with twine?
On the other hand, do you want Bush, who, if by some pure statistical oddity actually does something right, can turn this nation back over and on its feet again, or do you want Kerry, who will try to do just that, but will misplace most of our other concerns in the process, and also has high odds of losing the battle to get us on our feet again?
These are the times when being stuck in the middle, politically, is a real major fucking headache.
Don't waste your vote on a sure loser (Nader, and that other guy). At least vote for either Bush or Kerry. By voting, you can complain about out deterioration.
For those of you who don't live in the U.S., you can pretty much ignore this post. :)
