Default If I was planning

on taking anyone in for a long term disastor, SHTF or TEOTWAWKI situation, I think the first thing I would ask them is if they voted. I've asked about 10 brain dead people today if they were going to vote next tuesday and at least 6 of them replied, what's the use, all politicians are the same and it's just a waste of time or I'm voting for so and so because the other guy is going to lose anyway. I used to think that voting should be manditory when a person signed up for the draft or turned 18, but now I can see that there are people who shouldn't be voting because they don't have a clue as to why they're voting.

Boy, that's for sure. I can't believe how many people show up and have no clue who's running for what, or what the issues are.

We've even had people ask us "who should we vote for?" "How should we vote on this or that?"

I'm happy to tell them MY opinion, but if they had any brains, they'd be doing research themselves and finding out. There are more ways than ever to read about these things.

Sure, it might seem like a good thing at first, to have someone ask you who to vote for. But I'm not in favor of ignorant masses, even if they DID go zombie-like to vote for my candidates or causes.

The exact reason Canada has a minority government, the whole province of ontario save for a handfull of people vote lieberal (cause their parents did)who like to trash bussiness and support welfare, well.. Sorry got off track lotsoflead you are so right if sheeple can't vote in relativly good times (compared to SHTF) then how can they be expected to not eat all of your hard gotten supplies or even worse decide to give them away cause you've got "lots"

Research political stuff? Gypsysue...silly girl. Don't you know there are more important things to do like, you know, like, watch sitcoms, and reality shows, and action/adventure movies, and shop at the mall, and watch the games all weekend, and -- you know, like, fun stuff.



As one person said to me: "I don't vote because I'm not politickle." That's how she pronounced it, too. Pol'-i-tick'-le.

I've met people that have no idea who they're voting for. They just vote for "their party". It's pathetic!

I'm not really voting for one party, I generally vote against the other party.

I'm a firearm owning Christian Tax Payer who served and loves this country so there's no way I could do otherwise.

Well survive, according to ObaMao and his Marxist komrads, that makes you a terrorist. Me too, and I'm proud of it (the firearm owning Christian Tax Payer part, not the terrorist part ). Oh. And add PATRIOT to the list too. (we need an icon 'sticking his chin out).

A good buddy of mine and I were discussing the disgusting upcoming elections, and he was telling me about this young man he had hired to help him installing doors and windows. He, my buddy asked the young man, 19 years old, if he was going to vote and what party did he prefer, he said he couldn't remember which party he signed up for, what! you just signed up last year when you turned 18, you can't remember!!!
After this my buddy wasn't to sure if this kid was brain dead and then could even learn the business and now is having a hard time not geting rid of him.

I don't see a dime's worth of difference in the 2 main parties. I have always voted for the canidate I felt shared my views. But there again, what they say and what they do are 2 different things. Wonder how long it will take the lobbiest & the ruling class to currupt the newbies. If they (the newbies) would only stand strong & together we might have a chance.

the MSM has done their damndest to discourage average people from voting, promoting the "their's no difference" &/or "they're ALL crooks" mentality

DON'T FALL FOR THIS! IT IS A SCAM!
