• Voting is nice

    We need to vote. It must be done. WHy? No one knows (or cares). I am just really bored right now so I am writing this for fun. Why? Because I am very very bored. I am getting so bored that I am writing this. Sad isn't it? LOL LOL LOL LOL

  • Every vote matters. Each ballot counts — or doesn’t count — in building a better Country

    Voting helps to safeguard our freedoms. A democratic community can only survive if its citizens see participation in the political process as a right, duty and a responsibility.If we all stopped participating in the electoral process, our democratic government could wither away. Remember your vote will affect the your life, as well as the lives of your family, friends, and the rest of the Philippines. So why would you not want to go out and vote for something so important?

  • Everyone should be able to vote. In the United States, we have that right and it aids us in receiving the freedom we deserve.

    Wile some people may think that voting is not necessary, one vote can change the entire outcome of an election. In the end, every single vote that has been cast does count whether it be a local election, a statewide election, or a national election. If you dislike a candidate, then vote for one you do like. Your vote going towards the candidate you like will give them a slightly better chance of winning.

  • Vote for your Country


    Every four years we vote, right. More than eighty million people didn’t vote at the last election. Were you one of those people who didn’t vote for the better of their country. Nobody can force a citizen to vote. But many citizens do vote, because voting lets them tell the government what they want it to do. If citizens think they’re paying too many taxes, they can vote for a person who promises to lower taxes. If citizens want more services, they can vote for someone who will promise to spend funds to gain more services.
    It’s also important for citizens to know how to work the voting machines or to mark the ballots they’ll be using when they vote, so that their votes will be counted. Why is that so important? Because every vote counts! An election might be decided by a single vote and history would be changed because a person go, or lost that one vote!
    “The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man for breaking down injustice and destroying the terrible walls which imprison men because they are different from other men.” – Lyndon Johnson. You can vote for anyone, black, white, tall, short, and gender.

  • We have the freedom and right to vote.

    Other counties in the world don't have the right to vote. However, here in America we do. The founding fathers made possible so we could have the freedom. We to to respected them and vote. Not only that but, African Americans and women had to work and risk there lives, just so they could vote. People often take freedom for graded, they don't fully understanding how important it is. Every vote counts. It is our responsibility to vote.

  • Yes, we need to vote as often as we are allowed too.

    Attending primaries and caucuses is a great way to ensure your candidate will be chosen. Voting in the general elections is not enough, we have to ensure there is someone we can vote for each election by participating in the nomination process. Too many people who have voted no, argue there isn't always someone to vote for, if they all would partake in the nomination process they could change that.

  • You need to vote

    Every body should vote because if you did not vote that wood make the poles unfair. Because that would throw off the votes and not as much delicate . If you like one of the candidates and you wont them to be president you need to vote for them so your vote counts!

  • Why wouldn't you?

    Not voting wont do much it'll just give the people you don't want in office a great chance of getting/staying in office. If you don't like who is in office then (I may be wrong) you have the ability to mark that their is no candidate you want to vote for. Not voting is like a child crying and not telling you whats wrong . Not gonna get far unless they tell you their thoughts right. Vote and if youre voting for the first time, do some research and see whats you need to register to vote and also look into the canidates you want to vote for.

  • Yes we have the right to vote!!!!!!!!!!

    The reason why I feel this is, because as us Americans we should have rights. People at age of 18 or older and any race can vote. African Americans have been through hard times, and now they can finally have freedom to choose who they feel like can be equal to everyone no matter of race or age or sex.
    We should have the right to vote because we need to express how we feel and think, and we want America with a smart etc.... President to protect and make our country a better place. Sure some people don't vote but u should. You need to say what is your mind. You have to chose to be brave and select who u think deserves to be president or not and when we don't have a good president and we only needed one more vote to have a good president but no affiance it would be on your shoulder now!

  • How can you vote in good conscience

    Read the responses of all the people that voted "yes", they all assume that there is someone to vote for.
    What am I supposed to do if none of the candidates represent what I want? Voting for the lesser of two evils is still evil. So all the people saying voting is a right and responsibility grow up. Casing an invalid or donkey vote is just as powerful as voting for no one at all.

  • We Just Are Not Smart Enough

    We are a group of people that are easily manipulated. I do not think everyone should vote or that people should vote just for the sake of voting. The election loses quality once that starts happening. I think elections should be in the hands of a few people who are educated on the topic and represent a diverse group of interests from the poor to the rich.

  • No no no

    A lot of the times, The people who vote actually have an understanding of what the electees want to do if they are voted in. However, For the people that are busy and have no time to get involved with society, They may not know what the people want, And only have a basic understanding of the whole group, Which makes them incompetent for voting. Voting lets people give their thoughts on how the government works, But if they don’t know anything about the people who are running for a position, They are just randomly voting.

  • Your vote does not matter

    We have an electoral college because the American people are too stupid to vote for the leader of their own country. That is the whole reason. We are told that voting is our civil duty and we are lucky to have it to make us feel like we actually have a legitimate say. It's a joke.

  • Voting for corrupt politicians will not fix a corrupt government.

    Where do American politicians come from? American families. Maybe it's not just the politicians who suck but the people too for supporting or not trying to change such corruption. Vote for someone, then when they drop the first missiles on innocent children, will it be on your conscious? How are those Nikes? Comfortable? Expensive? Made by slaves in China?

    People like to say by not voting you don't have the right to complain. Let's think about this logically. If you got someone dishonest and corrupt into office who is little more the a corporate shill who will send us to war, spy on us, and just rape the rest of the world for resources and labor, then you're responsible for putting them into power (not really) and if you think voting is that important, then you have no right to complain because you put that dishonest person into power.

    Also anyone with half a bit of wits about them knows America is not a democracy. It says republic all over our fake monopoly money. Aristotle knew in any true democracy the poor would get together and seize the holdings of the rich, and his solution was a welfare state. The founding fathers knew this too, but instead of opting to appease the the view of the masses, they reduced democracy to the form of government they created to protect the holdings of wealthy white men.

    Imagine being able to vote for anything to eat for dinner because it's a democracy. You can eat anything you want... As long as it's fried chicken or cheeseburgers. And every night we will have a highly publicized election with all the tact and seriousness of American Idol. All the fried chicken people will tell you how fried chicken is going to save the world. While the cheeseburger camp will tell you how fried chicken people will ruin the world. Smart people are like hey I like pasta, ribs, and salads too, why should I be limited to fried chicken and cheeseburgers?

    Really If i had to define current USA oligarchy seems to be the best definition of it's government practices. The list of betrayals from of government goes on and on and we swallow it like a gulp of coca cola because we suffer from cognitive dissonance. It's impossible to reject the corner stone of your existence because that would make you a victim, and american's can't handle that.

    So hey keep voting, keep going to war, keep being spied on, keep watching your dollar become worth less an less, keep living in a world where there's ghettos in every major city that are absolutely heart breaking environments. Keep thinking voting for someone who just serves profit driven corporate interest in going to help anyone but themselves.

  • The true candidate has already been picked, voting just makes the public think they are making the choice.

    As I see it the candidates make speeches to lure the public in, but they are already aware of what's going to take place. The Democrats and the Republicans are making back door deals together. No mater who wins the agenda has already been plotted out, and no matter what they say the majority of their schemes are not for the betterment of society.

  • Voting directly and necessarily violates human rights

    A human being is a creature who has, by right, 100% control over his or her own life. Every human has this right, and all those logically derived from it; consequently (consequently; no, this is not an exception but it follows directly and expressly) every human being has the right not to be ruled in any slight degree by somebody else; or in other words, no human has any right to rule another. Yet government, and the voting process by which it is perfumed and disguised, is in the exclusive business of ruling others. Therefore, it is in the business of violating this fundamental human right, and therefore voting for it violates human rights.

  • A democratic Option Without a Democracy?

    How many people go to the supermarket each week (or month) to buy food they won't eat or buy clothes they won't wear? Hopefully, I am sure that very few, if none, do.. Right. Thus, how can anyone suggest that the public vote for politicians that DO NOT represent them or their views? Exactly, it doesn't make sense.

    This argument remains simply because the news media continues to fail to harness the voices of those who have been failed by political policy making decisions. Thus, there remains many issues - without discussed or debate - that, again, continue to be left out under the heading of 'holding our politicians to account'.

    Would you believe we had a recession in 2008? Do you know how much 'failings' of ordinary folk took place? Exactly! Tell me when such vast evidence was even raised through our media and politicians held to account for such failings - not forgetting those consequences that left bold people without viable small businesses, homes... Mental health challenges? Then, tell me who hold politicians to account on the REAL issues?

    Finally, the thing about a democracy is that.. You cannot have part of it - nor some of it; nor can you allow politicians to say "we have a better democracy than them". You either have a democracy or you don't! Do we have a democracy? Well, let's find evidence that suggest that Fairness and Justice is for ALL.

    What I have just said (above) are stories that don't get the headlines. Thus, we have to ask ourselves, "why aren't the news media willing to harness such real stories and hold politicians to account?" The fact that an MP has No Legal or Statutory Obligation to Represent anybody (did you know that?), and "who can inform others of how much MPs actually achieve for constituents on a yearly basis?" If the system doesn't work, and no political leader to BOLD enough to promote such changes in their policy, why vote for the same rhetoric that will never improve REAL lives?

    Productivity is the answer to improving personal and local economies. The Work Programme has been a failure to many - so has employment services. What political leader talks about any of this? None.

    These are some of the many reasons that I question the reason for voting. If the news media - with all its Power - started to reflect on the sort of Boldness I refer to amid the challenges that deserves Hope and Solutions - maybe... Just maybe... The right questions will be asked... And politicians will be pinned-down to what really is holding back Britain from being GREAT BRITAIN!!!
