Please Don't Vote
Every time we get close to an election there are all sorts of messages encouraging people to vote. Unfortunately, the people that need to be encouraged to vote are exactly the ones that shouldn't be voting. If you are the type of person who doesn't pay attention to politics, has only a rudimentary grasp of major issues, doesn't see much difference between the parties and only votes because you feel obligated, please do us all a favor and stay home. Avoid the lines and the hassle. Don't bother voting. It's ok, really. Ignore the people who say it's your civic duty to vote. It isn't. If you just don't care enough to vote without being prompted, it's your civic duty not to vote. Think about those of us who do care, and don't dilute our votes with your uninformed and uncaring selections. Just go about your normal routine on election day, avoid the polls, and we'll all be better off. Thanks.
