    We DO NOT NEED more IDIOTS voting just because someone told them they should vote.

    We need more people making intelligent decisions about who they vote for. We need less people voting for their team/mascot/color. If you check the 'republican' or 'democrat' checkbox when you vote, you are the worst kind of citizen, more so than one who doesn't vote. There is absolutely no possible way that you agree with every single member of one party.

    You should ONLY VOTE FOR PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTAND. You should not be voting based on what CNN or Fox news told you. You should not be voting based on what your friends are voting for. You should not be voting without knowing the people you are voting for.

    If you think the president is the most important person to vote for, PLEASE DON'T VOTE, you don't know how the government works.

    I don't want more people voting. I want more people knowing who the fuck they are voting for! I don't care who you vote for as long as you actually know what they stand for and what they will do. Look at the history of the people you vote for. If you don't know someones history DON'T VOTE FOR THEM.

    No TV commercial or radio spot has told you the truth. They may not flat out lie, but they most certainly withhold the full information in order to make their guy seem like he/she is better than they actually are.

    Please don't vote just because MTV or CodeWeavers told you to, thats how we got to this point in the first freaking place.
