Which is worse?

To you, which is worse? Voting for the lesser of two evils, or not voting at all?

To not vote is to not participate. If you are content sitting on the sidelines watching the world go by, then by all means don't vote...just don't complain about the results...

Not voting at all is the worst by far. You are a part of the solution when you vote - you are part of the problem when you don't - and you have no right to complain.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I'd choose the lesser of two evils, because somehow somewhere it'll effect me somewhere down the line knowing my luck. So I like to have a say in any future arrangements!

Not voting is worse, in my book. So many good people have died so we could vote that not voting seems like a sacriledge.

I think not voting is worse. It's your choice, but if you don't vote, don't complain about the results. I think every vote I've ever made has been a lesser of two evils decision sadly enough.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Not voting is by far the worse. But voting for the lessor of two evils is still a vote for evil. In both cases, the crooked establishment wins and the people loose. A write in vote would be better than a vote for the lessor of the evils. By writing in a vote or voting for an independant on the ballot shows the 2 parties (D & R ) that you ar esick of all there crap. A write in vote for Mickey Mouse woulod be better than a vote for evil.

I personally agree with most of you, and feel it's far better to vote than not regardless of the less than ideal options to choose from.

There's an episode of South Park that addresses this exact issue actually that's pretty funny.
