Why Some People Do Not Vote

By admin ~ July 4th, 2010 @ 5:02 pm

Have you ever noticed that every year fewer people vote? Do you vote? No matter what you say, the truth is that at the average election only 50% of the people vote. Of course some say if un-informed people do not vote then that is a good thing, as their un-informed vote is a waste. A more informed electorate would be good indeed, but is that a good use of time to educate the masses if so few people vote? If people do not care, then informing them could be said to be a wasteful expenditure of time.

Another issue is in many states when you sign up to vote you are also put into the jury pool. Voting just signs people up for jury duty and if and when you are called; then you sit there and they treat you like crap and waste your time. While sitting on a jury you might vote to hang the thief and then a liberal judge lets him off with time served? Meanwhile you sacrifice thousands of dollars to be there and they threaten you.

Many people feel that who ever they vote for makes no difference because once they get into office they forget the people who put them there and thus no longer represent us at all. The miss trust in government is unfortunate and so are the scandals of bribes and lobbyists. We must clean up the government if we wish people to respect it and participate in the duty and their right to vote. Consider this in 2006.
