Thursday, January 19, 2006Blogs, musicians, every public service organization you can shake a stick at (beating them with that ugly stick wouldn't be a bad idea), and the like are demanding, cajoling, begging, encouraging, and advertising for everyone to go vote. P. Diddy is doing the stupid 'vote or die' campaign. Supposedly, it doesn't matter who you vote for, who Osama endorsed, what issues are important, as long as you vote. I've said and repeat, don't vote, it only encourages them.
Well, I've had it. According to most of the polling data, the country Naughty Office is split, almost right down the middle. Throw in a couple of percent for Nader and Badnarik, and no matter how you look at it, no matter which side of the political spectrum you fall, no matter if you're socialist or capitalist, you can pretty much be assured that at least half of your countrymen are idiots.
So I'm saying, don't vote. Because the odds are at least 50% that you're in the idiotic half (you can decide which half that is) and I don't want your stupid opinion deciding which way our country is governed for the next four years. And given that you've possibly been stupid enough to vote in previous elections, it's a better than 50% chance you're the reason that this country is spiraling deeper and deeper into socialism.
Forgive the anger and frustration. I'm really really tired of stupid blind people right now. But don't vote; because for all I know you may be one of them. My apologies if you're not. Just for the record, I am going to vote tomorrow. I have my voter registration card and Mensa membership (proving that I am smart enough). And besides, I have to cancel out Osama bin Laden's absentee ballot(s).
