if voters in this country can honestly be swayed by made for tv movies attacking kerry or little bullshit commercials attacking so and so personally, we shouldnt be given the right to vote, because we've taken what should have been an incredibly important decision and degraded it to the level of picking a fucking home-coming queen

Politicians generally don't want a majority of the public to vote anyway. That was evident several years ago when the republican majority of congress shot down clinton's motor-voter bill.
Most people in this country (by most, I mean not rich) believe that there vote does'nt matter, they need to stop sitting on their hands and fill in a ballot. Meanwhile, the rich minority knows the importance of the "one vote, one voice" theory and vote in every election, hence the reason so many assholes get elected. Why would'nt they? They are representing the intersets of the majority of the actual americans who voted.

Most teenagers (18+)

Most teenagers eightteen and up wont vote.
There vote can mean somthing to this this country.
It can change the world if more teenagers voted.
Teenagers these days dont think of the positive side.
They dont think there vote is good enough because their only 18.

That, or they don't know enough about what is going on. Perhaps they don't know the candidates point's of view, or what's going to happen if they vote for this guy as opposed to the other guy. All they have is what everyone else tells them, and perhaps the few minutes of video from the news about our president or opposing candidate....

So if all they have is "oh well, he looks pretty cool." Then why would you even want them to vote...?

That vote really shouldn't count, because a decision was made out of the blue. But the sad thing is, those votes do count. And they're wasted. So if someone doesn't want to vote, and they don't give a fuck about the government, we shouldn't force them to vote.

I agree with you

I agree with you..!

Its like a book with no cover.
You have to see all the details, and the personality before you vote.
