Stop Shoulding All Over Me

Guess what. I didn't register to vote. Nope. And I'm not going to vote. Nope. And I am so sick and tired of people everywhere telling me I HAVE to vote. Or that it is my CIVIL DUTY. Or if I don't vote, I'm not being a good citizen! You are shoulding all over me!

I am choosing not to vote this year (which IS legal by the way) for very personal reasons. I am not going to go into them. I don't know if very many people would understand them. But it wasn't a decision of laziness. It was an intentional decision.

I feel great about all of you that vote, voting. I love it. I love the fact that we can vote. That is not where my decision came from.

So, if you want to tell me your reasons for voting. Or tell me why you are concerned that I am not voting. Great! But if you tell me I should vote, I might just punch you. And we all know that I do kung fu.

your leaves dipped in metal are pretty schwank.

Maybe I'll put a poll on my blog about muppets so that you can vote for something else, you know fun.

I'll work on that.

I was totally gonna vote on that muppet poll, but there wasn't a write in option. Pepe the King Prawn in '08!

If it makes you feel better, i was totally planning on writing in myself for prez or maybe cast an empty ballot as protest. i'm usually a third-party kinda voter, but this election, i decided to do something i have never done--voted for someone i didn't really want to, all for the reason of hoping to keep the presidency out of the hands of a marxist.
