Even though the Republican presidential candidate has won in Idaho's voting by 25-45 points every election for the last 40+ years, I am still going to vote.
...and no, I'm not voting for Romney. He's an idiot, is un-reelectable and is a joke of a candidate.
...I'm not voting for Obama either, as I don't think he gets it.
To some, that means I am throwing away my vote, but I don't see it that way. I am voting for whom I think would make the best president, and I am the only one that matters when it comes to 'why I vote.'
But in all honesty, I am not voting this year because of the Presidential race. Again, in Idaho, my vote is like spitting against the wind unless I vote hard-line Republican.
I am voting for the local legislation, and to keep the idiots in check...
Another set of propositions takes taxpayer money and requires schools to provide laptops for High Schoolers, and makes taking online courses a requirement to graduate.
Between those laws, a few idiots/racists running for public office, and a mayor that has memory issues, I am making sure my vote is counted.
Bottom line, it doesn't matter why you vote, or who/what you vote for, as long as you vote. Make your voice heard, even if you are shouting into the abyss.
If you don't vote, you don't have the right to bitch and moan about the state of things. Because you didn't care enough to try and change it, you shouldn't be able to complain.
So, my fellow Americans, be sure to cast your vote Tuesday.
...if you don't, I'll send this creepy bitch after you...
