More than 130 million people turned out to vote Tuesday, the most ever to vote in a presidential election. In 2008 the Presidential election with ballots still being counted in some precincts into Wednesday morning, an estimated 64 percent of the electorate turned out, making 2008 the highest percentage turnout in generations. This is amazing. So, why don't people vote? They blame the president but they don't vote. Is there any reason for this?

You are right, about blaming the messenger. We also need to tell person we are voting for or against why we are voting for or against them. We need to let politicians know what we want. WE are the bosses.
That is true, sad but true.
I agree with you. There is not a single reason. However, all you need is a computer, you can see what a candidate has done. You can contact a candidate and tell him or her why you like or dislike what they have done.
That is true, but we can fire them. We are the bosses. If we hire them, then we can fire them. We can lower their wages. There is a lot we can do, we just need to get together and do it.
I am glad you vote. If more African Americans vote the more politicians will help them. At least that is what I believe.
So, it just goes on and on.
Maybe when they see their rights being taken away, then they will care.
Our rights are already being taken away and people still don't care. Take their toys away and then they will care.
Rhonda you are correct, our rights are being taken slowly. I wonder when they will take the toys away.
Oh they'll keep the toys coming as long as we can afford to buy them. That's part of the illusion. Tell people they have a right to the toys and they won't notice when their right to an education is taken away.
