Sometimes I think non-compulsory voting might be better because then it may eliminate all those people who ‘hate politics’ or think its ‘a waste of time’ or ‘boring’ or ‘don’t care about politics because of aforementioned reasons’.
Not that people who have no interest in the basis of society would use the word aforementioned - oops I’m being mean - but seriously. POLITICS IS IMPORTANT PEOPLE.
The real question, should we force idiots to vote?
YES! This is something I believe wholeheartedly. If people are ‘idiots’, the answer is to educate them, not take away their right to vote (to paraphrase Thomas Jefferson). Furthermore, we live in a great democracy that offers us so much, the VERY least we can do is front up on ONE measly day every few years to select our representative.
I would NEVER under ANY circumstances support a change to non-compulsory voting and view any attempt to do so with much suspicion.
God help us.
They can’t win. They cannot win. Everything we’ve worked for, I’ve worked for, nearly my entire life will be dismissed, invalidated, made illegal or otherwise destroyed—families, marriages, relationships, employment. Romney and Ryan are for the dehumanization of women, the poor, and gays. Romney and Ryan are for hate crimes removing the “problem” of gays. Romney and Ryan are for arresting people who simply disagree with them.
They want a police state with the rich utterly supported and the poor crushed under their heels. They want to throw the country back to where problems were solved by execution, not discussion.
They cannot win. We’re doomed if they do.
So frightening what the future looks like for all of us, if these two giant bags of dicks get elected. I am going to cry.

To all my US followers, if you haven’t registered, please do it.
In the 2008 presidential election, 80% of adults from families earning at least $100,000 a year voted, while only 52% of adults from families earning $20,000 or less cast a vote, according to data from the Census Bureau.
Voting is important, that’s why rich people vote in such high numbers.
Voting is important, that’s why the Republicans are trying to make sure as few of us vote as possible.
There are more of us. If we vote, we win.
