then get informed silly! hehe

Honestly though, so many people complain about this that or the other thing and then they don't vote. D'oh!

This is the ONE time that each and every single person in America who is over 18 becomes equal. We ALLLLLLLL get a say so use i!

U2demo -- did you check your state? some states allow you to vote if you are turning 18 anytime that year. I'm sure you checked on this Ms. Smarty.

And yes, don't just vote every four years. Bloomberg is up for reelection here in NYC next year. I will probably have to vote against him.

That kind of apathetic attitude is exactly what will lead this country further and further away from what it should be, because it harbors the idea that it is ok not to be aware of what is going on in the world around you, and that is crap. If you do not know anything regarding the issues and such, research it and learn it. It's important. We need to be harboring the idea that is absolutely NOT ok to not care or not know what is going on in the world around you, NOT this apathetic idea that if you don't know what's going on, it's ok not to vote. The only thing you and I agree on here is that people shouldn't vote based on what celeberties or anyone else says.

Then people who don't want to vote and who dont want to learn about the issues should be forced to vote?

We have mandatory voting (well at least turning up and getting your name ticked off the rolls) here, at least it ensures that we dont have any "disenfranchised minorites" whining about how they were robbed of the vote.

In a free country you shouldnt be shamed into voting let alone coerced into voting for a particular candidate - there should be no shame in not voting.

My first Presidential election was 1996. I couldn't wait, and I went and voted with my dad.
