Yes, exactly. I am not going to vote because I am not properly educated on the candidates. It would be irresponsible to vote without it being an educated decision. I'm sick of all my professors telling me to vote because I have the right. That is ridiculous.

Agreed. It's important that people vote, but not if your voting for the wrong reasons.

It doesn't take that long to do a bit of research though.

I expected to read another Jonathan Cook blog, but I have to say that was pretty well written and thought out and I agree with a majority of what he wrote.

I agree that you shouldn't vote if you don't look up info. But lets be real, everything is so bias and exaggerated and made up that its hard to find the real truth and stances on the two nominees. So its a loose loose situation really

And also

Mccain sucks
Obama sucks

Cause in the end... who paid for their campaigns? Deep pocket corprates lended a big helping hand. So whoever wins will need to return the favor. Its all a revolving door. I would love to see someone like ron paul or nader have a winning shot but they won't and thats just sad.


Oh and if anyone is curious- I voted obama. He's the lesser of two evils in my opinion..

I agree and I did try, but the fact is it is very difficult to see through a politician and their policies. They are both aiming for the presidency and are both trying to sell themselves to the public. There are flaws consistent in both candidates policies and I don't want to vote with my gut. I would rather let my vote be wasted then make a decision that isn't completely educated. Unfortunately I did not get into the presidential race until recently, missing many debates, and the democratic and republican races, I do not consider myself qualified to make this decision. I am being a responsible by refusing to vote. I can look up facts all I want but the truth is that most of the articles I have accessed online are biased either for Obama or for McCain. This is the first election I have had the option to vote and I am passing this one up. Next time I will be educated and vote.

That's how I feel. It's important to vote and the fact that he said he didn't vote means he didn't do a little research. I vote because I want to try and help other people...I might fail, but at least I tried.

I will respect what he says, but why not make an effort to learn your shit and join in the vote.
I'm just saying you have no right to bitch about whatever state our country ends up in if you didn't care enough to pick our leader.
