    Are you going out to vote this coming Presidential election, why or why not?

    In 2008, we saw that Americans went out and vote. While some people don't vote at all, others support their party but don't go out and vote. How about you, are you going to cast your vote and let your voice be heard?

    Yes. Because it is my duty and privilege as an American to vote. This is one of the hardest decisions I will have to make as far as previous elections. But, I'm not willing to go from bad to worse.

    Of course!  I've never missed a national election since I became of age 30+ years ago.

    I will do the one thing this year I never thought I would. I will be voting, but it will be a "wasted" vote. I will not support Romney or Obama.

      I always say I won't vote - then end up do with a protest vote: This year I live in a state that has 'write-in' so although I don't really like Ron Paul, writing him in.

    Nope, doesn't matter who you vote for.  If you want real change, get rid of the international bankers who control our monetary policy.  Limit government power, so politicians can't auction it off to corporations.

    Things won't change from an election. 

    The only way things will change, is by changing the hearts and minds of the people. 

    The real problem is the lack of education on things like the Federal Reserve, foreign policy, and free markets.

    The first time I voted I stood in the rain and waited an hour to vote to re-elect Richard Nixon.  So, I'm not always right.  But too many good men and now women have died to secure this freedom for me.  I'm going to do it even when the choices are not the best, or more often than not, my vote is going to get obliterated by the electoral college.

    I vote in every election, federal, state and local.  We are so lucky to be able to freely express our opinions and cast votes for whomever we choose.

    Yes, simply because it is my right as an American citizen.  There were trailblazers who fought for me to have this opportunity and I will exercise it as I've always done.

    No, I will not vote in the upcoming election.  I personally do not believe our votes count.  Until such time the electoral voting system is abolished, if it ever is, I will not waste my time voting!

    People who do not go out and vote are neglecting their responsibility. When the United States was founded (granted there was many flaws with who got to vote) but it was not just a right to vote but a responsibility. If people do not go vote then they have no right to complain either. So, yes I will be voting for whom I think is best fit.

    Not exactly. We are expats so we vote absentee via the U.S. Embassy (I think). Since we no longer have a State of residence this is the only election in which we can vote!

    Absolutely!  Hoping and praying for a BIG change after these last four years. Always vote in every election.  Gotta put in a good word here for Rush Limbaugh and Fox News for giving us some vital information.
