V-Day 2004 Poll

I'm interested to see HONEST opinions for those that choose to answer.

I know that this is an unscientific method, but still, it gets you thinking..

Always vote, it's my voice. If it goes the other way, I can always complain, because I voiced my opinion, those who don't vote, don't have the right to complain.

I vote in every election, regardless of whether it is local, county, state or national. I consider it to be one of the most important civic duties we have.

I'm trying to decide which is worse--not voting at all, or not really caring and voting for the one who annoys me the least....hmmm...

Yeah, I'll probably vote anyway.

I consider it my duty as a patriot to vote. Something that I haven't ever done, but intend to soon, is to start contacting my Representative and my Senators on issues that concern me - another duty that far too many shirk or ignore, in my opinion...

My opinion, if you don't vote you have no right to bitch about anyone that is elected.

The Irishman, too, picked the fly out of his drink but then held it out over the beer and yelled "SPIT IT OUT, SPIT IT OUT, YOU BASTARD!"

I have a responsibility to my own dignity to only vote for someone whom I believe in. As such, I have not decided if I will be voting yet as I'm not positive I feel comfortable putting my name behind any of the candidates yet.

Chances are that at the very least I'll hand in an empty ballot if it were to come to that.

I prefer George Carlin's view that you DO have that right because you weren't stupid enough to vote for the morons in office

Seriously though, I will be voting, no matter what.

I haven't missed a vote in the 19 years I've been eligible and certainly not missing this one. We need to take back our country from the religious right and as we learned 4 years ago, every vote counts!!!
