    Why I Don't Vote

    It's actually just because I'm not an American citizen. I'm Israeli, and I don't want to give up my allegiance to that country. Otherwise, I would always, always vote.

    WASTE of Time

    I am a Christian and I so not vote. The Lord is in control of our world and he already knows who is getting in office before we do. the world is on a downworld spiral and nothing is going to get it back up because its not meant to go up according to bibical scriptures. The person...

    How Could We You Ask?

    In the eyes of the Monk - the reason to not vote goes like this: 'They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety' Ben Franklin - Historical Review of PA in 1759 - you want to give up essential liberties and have a...

    I vote in all primary and secondary elections. It's a true right of americans. Democracy was founded on the opinions of man, and with out voicing that said opinion... all would be silent.

    I Never Voted...

    I'm not a very political person, and both sides of the election have their ups and downs. While choosing a good, I might also choose a bad... and a million other such notions. Best for me to mind my own business and let what happens happen.

    Pointless.

    OK I'm not interested in politics, but what the hell's the point in voting? Here there's only 2 parties that can win and they're both the same! They promise you the earth when they want your vote, then stick up the middle finger after people fall for it. Not for me thank you!

    It's An Illusion

    I refuse to vote because the idea that votes have anything to do with who gets into office is a joke, an illusion that the government uses to make people feel like they matter.  I will not participate in such an obvious scam, even if I like a particular candidate, because I...

    Politics Are Stupid

    I don't vote.  I never have.  I can't imagine putting that much thought and effort into something that I know in my heart is a cruel joke anyway.  I can't spend hours pouring over the fine details so I'd know which mudslinging party to believe.  No thanks.

    So, here's the game plan: How bout NOONE show up at the poll booths this election? Yes, we'd still have a President elected. It would probably be determined by the Electorial College. And yeah, several of us would STILL be p!ssed at who got it. But THE PEOPLE will have VOICED...

    Voting and Taxes...

    The reason I dont vote is based on the tax system. I dont think the system is fair. If my vote is equal to yours then I should pay the same amount of taxes that YOU Do. But this has not been the case. Take a look at the 2006 IRS tax statistics. You have 1% of the nation, who...
