It's the same question everywhere, here in Germany too.
Why should they?
They can select dinosaur #1 and dinosaur #2. There are hardly any politicians around the globe that makes politics for the upcoming generations. Once they're elected, their only concern is tightening their power. Promises from before the elections are quickly forgotten.
In the U.S. who should they vote for?
Another 4 or 8 years governed by yet another Bush? Or a democrat whose every decision is blocked by the reps?
Same in Germany. If we'd have to elect now, we'd be able to choose between Christ Democrats and Social Democrats. In the past years, both parties governed and both sucked. Both parties are only puppets on strings.
So, why should I vote for them?
So, why should anyone choose between the Plague and Cholera?
As for me, I am a protest voter, proudly making my crosses at +Martin Sonneborn
