And the winner is……

Let me start by saying that I did not vote!!!!  Now I know everybody is going to make a big deal about that fact because, “every vote counts” or “if you don’t vote, you can’t complain about who’s in office”.  I don’t vote because I know absolutely nothing about politics except for what people at work argue about, and none of them make sense.  I know what you’re saying….”you have to pay attention, you have to learn so you can contribute!”  First of all, I just got married, I have a 5-year-old stepdaughter and a 1-year-old, I work 60 hours a week, got to the gym 4 times a week to keep my self in incredible shape, and it’s football season…..even daylight savings time wouldn’t allow me to watch CNN or MSNBC long enough to know what I’d be voting for.  It would be along the lines of me betting on hockey!  And those damn commercials are enough to turn anyone off the topic, we are basically voting on who won’t screw things up worse……hmmm, should I drink the bleach, lighter fluid, or cyanide today?  Pick your poison people.  Honestly though, the thing that pisses me off the most are the people who flaunt their stickers around letting everyone know “I voted”…well congratulations your arrogant prick.  Wearing a sticker letting people know you gave blood is one thing, at least your just saved a few lives….but voting, c’mon.  I woke up at 4 am, had a cup of coffee,  and bench pressed 175 lbs….you see me wearing a goddamn sticker…no, cause no one gives a shit.  I don’t need you shoving your political views down my throat in the form of a piece a paper with adhesive on it.  And you know you don’t care either, you just vote to vote.  It’s like American Idol….200,000,000 people vote for the winner, and 9 people buy their album when it comes out!  Maybe we should get Ryan Seacrest to host the final debate and leave us hanging through 5 commercial breaks before letting us know who won Governor  of Idaho…….I’d watch that!
