    I went to vote yesterday, and I was the only person voting.

    What is wrong with Americans that they don't vote???

    To much TV. Piss poor parenting. Constant bombardment of digital entertainment that tells them that being selfish and greedy is normal. Same entertainment that tells them its cool to be a degenerate. Same entertainment that tells them that paying attention to politics is dumb, politically incorrect, and makes you a total nerd and loser.

    Rhetoric.

    The Left vs. Right paradigm is sickening, to most people who, you know...........actually go outside of their homes, know each other, work TOGETHER.

    Plenty of people do not think thier vote counts, and plenty of over people are working overtime to make it so hard to vote that no one wants to put up with the fuss.

    I think voting should be mandatory..like Jury Duty.

    I voted in the AM...before work and there was no line whatsoever.

    I took my wife to the same polling place at about 5:45 last night.

    4 booths, 2 empty...no line.

    Pathetic.

    Maybe we SHOULD let undocumented immigrants vote...at least there will be people voting.

    Just as soon as it's mandatory to follow through on Campaign promises.

    The unionized garbage collectors of my county were given the day as a paid day off so they can vote.

    Cant quite figure that one out seeing as their hours are 6-3 and the polls are open until 8...some til 9.

    If I didn't know better I would think you were a liberal.

    You sure sounded like one.

    well when you elect people who claim they will create jobs and then they do nothing but block anything that will create jobs AND make laws to keep Americans from voting as well as work to get the American government credit downgraded instead it makes people think voting means nothing
