    Why are you posting here so much? Did the Grey Eminence kick you out of the Philosophy sub-forum?

    Americans treat their elections like a sporting event.

    It's purely entertainment, its like watching Jersey Shore, just exponentially worse.

    Don't even bother with it. I majored political science and almost killed myself with how stupid it all really is. It's a game of pandering and deceit.

    How? My political opinion hasn't been stated or implied. You don't even know what party I support. I just stated that it makes sense to vote for whoever you think is a better choice.

    You also lied about putting me on your ignore list, as expected.

    I understand your reasoning for "voting for the lesser of two evils", but please don't refer to that as "making the better choice". If you begin with saying the glass is half empty, don't turn around and say it's half full just to back up your argument. Besides, in terms of election year rhetoric, it is very easy for the "lesser" of the two evils, in terms of rhetoric, to become very "evil" after they're elected, in terms of policy. Just look at Obama.

    That's not what you said. You said voting for the lesser of two evils is a logical decision. How is that even remotely logical? That's what stupid people believe and do because they think settling on the least shitty candidate is somehow a good thing. You're still voting for evil dummy.

    Also, I only took you off my ignore list to see just how silly your political opinions are and you didn't disappoint.

    Not voting at all is a logical course of action if you're unhappy with your choices. The current ideology of the "duty" or "responsibility" to vote is misleading and actually serves to reinforce the status quo.

    If every single person refrained from voting, the consequences would be immeasurable compared to the potential "change" promised by any single candidate.

    i think the problem everyone's bitching about is really just the fact that there's really no way in hell anyone that would be capable of being a decent president will ever actually be able to get themselves anywhere close to becoming president
