Why Intelligent, Caring People Don't Vote

I know that a LOT of people are going to disagree with this one, but it's the truth. And there are some good nuggets in there that you may not have thought about, so please read through the whole thing before hating on it. ;)

I'm looking for discussion within the article, so if you have a comment, throw it in, and pass it along as well! Let's see where people stand...


I believe that voting and politics are important things. But they are not important for everyone, and we must all respect that. For me personally, politics are not my battle. I am perfectly happy to live in the United States and appreciate the freedom and opportunity I have here. I know that no matter which side is in power, my family and I are already going to have a life that’s better than most other people on the planet. I choose to show my appreciation by empowering people to make a positive difference in the lives of others, and literally change the world for the better. It is simply not important to me whether a Republican or Democrat wins the next County Executive seat. Again, that’s not to say that it’s not an important discussion, but for me personally, investing my energy into something like that is not worth my time . . . which is why I don’t care about it. I hope that makes sense.
