Sad thing is I reread that about four times to tone it down to even that level.

The thing is it's my RIGHT to vote...I don't have to exercise every right I'm given.

I'm going to have to tend to disagree that not wanting to give up some of your money through taxes is Un-American. This country was founded on the belief of people going out and making something out of nothing, hard work, and getting what you put in.

If I was extremely wealthy, I would have no problem giving some of my money to unfortunate people who DESERVE it. Those who aren't given an equal chances, because lets face it, every child is not born equal.

Sadly, that isn't the case nowadays. Too many people find holes in the system, and take money from hard working Americans. If people want to live in a Society where everyone makes equal income, and were all on the same levels, don't live in America. Try China for example, where the average income in 2006 was just over $2000. I simply cannot find ways to make it seem reasonable that people who put in hours and hours of hard work a day, make great pay because of their hard work, should have to turn around and give that money to some, who in a lot of cases, wants to take the lazy route and get that money without work.

I like to look at it like this -- I feel that there is good in everyone, and choose to not assume the worst about people. I'm over-optimistic on serious things like this, but its what gets me through a lot of hard times.

I feel that a good attitude and positive thinking can go a long way (especially if shared by large groups of people).

While I could agree with the idea that voting for a president really doesn't affect the average person one way or the other, voting in local elections does. Property tax goes up, even if you don't own, then rent goes up. Communities can ban anything they feel like. They can make speeding tickets $2,000. There are endless possibilities at the local level that can affect you. Not voting for those basically says you don't really care about yourself/community/future. Local politics is where REAL change starts. Or sit on the sidelines.

P.S. Keep bleeding, Jack. I'm bleeding with you.

Personally, I somewhat agree with butters and jarron on the whole voting thing. However, people who dont vote have the same rights as those who do vote, but they just choose not to. Although not voting is somewhat silly, the people who complain the most are those who dont vote. I believe that dont vote have every right to, just not the right to complain.......

I agree with that, I didn't vote and I'm not going to complain about the results of the election.
