I am considering not voting anymore. I have voted in at least 95% of any of the opportunities I had, out of respect for all the brave men and women who suffered and/or died so that I would have that privilege.
But it seems to me that voting makes no difference. Both from the Left and Right, people go to Washington DC and all that happens is that banks win and big corporations win.
I like the Tea Party but I just know that before too long, all the talk will become empty rhetoric and that most of these candidates will sell their souls for power and money.
The standard line is: if you don't vote, don't bitch. But then, when there's pretty much no difference between Obama and Bush, no difference between Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner...well, WTF...
I would LOVE to be convinced that voting is worthwhile. If someone has a non-insulting rationale for continuing to vote, then as Ross Perot said: "I'm all ears!"
