You have the right to vote. Nobody says you have to vote. Yes, I know both Republicans and Democrats are saying all Americans should vote. I’m suggesting just the opposite- this country would be a lot better off if some people just sat home and didn’t vote.
If you haven’t bought a read a newspaper in two years- don’t vote. If you can’t remember if Obama is a Republican or Democrat – don’t vote. If you can’t name one of the justices on the Supreme Court – don’t vote. If you can’t name two branches of government (I mean any 2 of the 3 branches) don’t vote. Hint: the US Post Office is not a branch. If you think Syria is next to Kuwait or Malaysia- don’t vote.
If you think of electing a president because you are mad at some decision made by the Supreme Court- forget it. It isn’t going to happen. Not the Obamacare, abortion or the right of gays to marry on the liberal side, or ruling unconstitutional gun control and campaign finance on the conservative side. Not going to be heard again and decided differently.
If you don’t care about politics, you have every right (see: Pursuit of Happiness clause) not to vote. If you do vote, and the person you voted for wins, it is partially your fault. I mean a very small fraction, but do you want this responsibility?
