Max Bemis of the band Say Anything, the individual who has had the most influence on my morals and world views, sums up the way I feel about voting in a tweet he posted from November 2012:
“Honestly I can’t champion voting for either party because politicians are basically actors. All i care about is human rights and no war.”
This is exactly how I feel. Yes, I’m a registered voter and all, and I was able to vote in last years election, but the older I grow, the more fake people seem. Politicians, especially. Sure, some may have good intentions and all, but when it comes down to it, most don’t even have chance of winning an election unless they tell some lies, white or not. I believe our political system is corrupt and I believe American citizens are stupid as a whole and our votes do not reflect an accurate decision for who should be in office. I’ve talked to many people about voting culture and most admit that they don’t really know anything about the people they are voting for other than a view or two that they happen to agree with. I will no longer vote for any more actors or support a system that is so majorly flawed.
All I care about is human rights and no war. Well said, Mr. Bemis.
Somebody please tell me they agree?
