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.
