Some people feel voting this year is a pointless exercise-they say "Why even vote?"-especially when the vote is so incredibly close. I do not agree, however, but what should we say to these individuals to convince them that every single vote counts?
The apparent closeness of this election should be the motivation to vote, not the other way around. Come on people, go before work, at lunch time or after work. Go just before the polls close if you have to wait, but go. Notice I didn't say go vote for so-and-so or else stay home. If you are still undecided, go with your gut. Keep in mind, there are other races out there besides the presidential race. This is America. We are America. Lets act like it and vote.
I very much doubt that every single vote counts in a country that has an electoral college system and the popular vote means nothing. Furthermore, knowing that the rule of the game is winner takes all, in a predominantly red or blue state individual votes are even more useless.
By the time polls are closed in the West Coast, the election is over and the 271 votes have been reached
BTW, let's not forget we DO HAVE a Supreme Court that can always change whatever "we the people" voted for
Not in the US. But to give the pot a good old stir I would If I were there and I think I'd vote Romney. Obama's four years have seen little change in the gloomy international economic growth outlook. I could be being very short sighted here but Romney is a financial wizard. I went off Obama when I looked a little closer at his supporters history with the outlawed nation of Islam. Please Obama supporters don't hit me for saying this. But as far as I can see Obama has been slow.
Since we know that the 1% are working hard to take control of all 3 branches of our government, I would tell them,
vote like your democracy depends on it, because it does. It's an important election, and whether you believe your vote counts or not, why not take the chance that it does count.
I already voted, on day 1 of early voting.
Yes. As pointed out above, there are many other decisions on the ballot besides POTUS.
Propositions and measures, oh my!
