Did you vote? Yes or no

Honestly, I don't think there's any good justification to not vote, but the one's I used were: 1. So much negative advertising, I couldn't tell what was true. 2. The telemarketing was outrageous this year. 14 calls on election day. One on Sunday night at 8:30 pm. Hate that. 3. I feel pretty powerless when it comes to politics. It all seems like a big game to me. You know what though. My 18 year old son put me to shame when he went out to vote. He told me that his friend who's in the Service told him he HAD to vote because people were dieing so we could have that Right. Wow! Hard to deny that. I'd love to hear your opinions and viewpoints

Me either. I feel like I should, but I'm kinda torn about it. What do you think?

It is the responsiblitiy of a citizen to vote. If you don't you take for granted the system put forth. There are many people that are in this world that would love to have a voice in the politcal process. I feel like it's a slap in the face if you don't excersice your right, a right so many would die for.

No frankly. But it is responsibility to vote. I'm hapless, hence not gone to polling booth.
