    POLL: How Many Plan To Vote in the November Presidential Election?

    I'm hearing people say they're not even going to vote this time. Some have told me there's really no choice and no need to bother.

    YES or NO....will you vote?

    The thing I think is most interesting is the fact that very few who click on this thread , vote. It would be interesting to know why.

    I vote every time, if you don't vote you have no right to complain and people who say they " dont vote because they are both the same or nothing will change any way" are really saying I'm too lazy and stupid to vote.

    Agree with TH. If you don't vote please keep your political opinions to yourself. You haven't earned the right to express them.

    We don't always get what we want, but that is no excuse not to vote.

    Good straightforward comments. One thing to consider is what if no one voted? Obviously some must vote.

    I agree mostly with the comments except I think there can be those who did study the candidates and after an objective evaluation decided they can't really maintain a clear conscience by voting for either. Their failure to vote on the president wouldn't be due to laziness or stupidity but more an expression of ones personal sense of integrity. I guess we could say they would just be consistent with their own set principles for living.

    Most who have told me they're not going to vote are very active in politics. The people I know who don't really give a flip are voting. They're democrats or republican to the bitter end. They vote party and that's it.

    So the people who voted last election are to blame
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    I think most Americans have for decades now voted for the "lesser of the evils." But what if the "evils" are pretty much equal? Then the winner makes little difference.

    Oh, as always, I'll vote. But I don't mind saying I'm not at all happy with my selection. "Lesser of the evils" here I come.

    As for who will win I'm pretty sure it will be the incumbent. It will be close but we'll have him another term. The reasons for this I can't share or we'll cross the line, so to speak.

    MB, I disagree on the point of not voting. IMO there is never a reason to not voting, there is always a choice, may not always be our favorite choice, but still a choice and even though we like neither candidates there are platforms, issues, fundamentals that each side represents...

    I always remember our ancestors gave their blood and many their lives just to give us the right to vote at all, for me, to not vote dishonors their sacrifices...Just my opinion....


    Please remember no political bashing of either party or candidate.... (politics)

    It's good to see the political board is back, as long as there is no bashing.

    Isn't it against t'net rules to call people lazy and stupid? Just asking.

    I did not call any specific person lazy or stupid. Against the rules to say TN member John Doe is lazy and stupid, not to say some people are lazy and stupid.

    But you made it specifically those who don't vote, which is obviously some on this thread.

    Are we allowed to talk politics and religion now, as long as there is no bashing?

    You were clearly indicating those who don't vote. And these are some of the members here, as evidenced by the poll.

    So you're saying politics are not being discussed in this thread? Interesting.

    KK, I named no specific individual, I made a generalization statement naming no specific member.....

    Your leaving out part of the rule posted....."Example: There are a lot of idiots in this world might be acceptable. You Mr. John Smiiiith are an idiot" ....... I named no specific person.

    Again, Big C's post was only about voting. I don't think most members would want it, but if you want to split hairs and for us to follow the exact letter of the rules to the very furthest extreme possible we could delete every single thread and post made that even remotely resembles even the slighest hint of anything to do with politics and or religion of any kind what so ever, that would also include signitures such as yours........

    According to the rule which you posted, you don't have to call someone a name directly. You said, "...OR INDICATING individuals." You did indicate those who don't vote, did you not?

    No, I wasn't asking you to delete anything. But the way you just described it is exactly the way you've been doing things.
    But the fact that you are so eager to delete my signature, while letting obvious political thread go, is very telling.

    Look up "specific individual" in defamation law suits and see what it refers to..........

    I'm not anxious to delete your signature, I said if you want us to push it to the very extremes your describing it would include signatures which you also use......

    I know what "specific individual" means. I also know what "or indicating individuals" means. Why do you seem to be ignoring that part?

    I don't want anything pushed to extremes. But that's what you've been doing, deleting anything and everything that has the slightest hint of anything political or religious. But it seems to be selective.

    I always vote, sometimes my pick wins, sometimes they don`t. That is the way it is, live with it and hope they do the best for the American people and not themselves.
