  • Vote!

    I just want to get the message out there, for everyone that can, register to vote! One thing my substitute teacher always said was "The only people who elect bad presidents are people who don't vote". Make your voice heard! This isn't meant to be a thread on who to vote for, just register and vote for whomever you support. More votes were cast for American Idol this year (granted you can vote more than once) than in the last general election.
    Again, this isn't meant to debate on who to vote for, but to encourage people to let their voices be heard. I know the electorial college has the final word, but you can make a difference.

          Because the proposed idea counts 14 year olds as 1/4th a vote, 16 year olds 1/2 a vote, then 18 is a full vote. The idea of half/quarter votes for kids is bad because where do you draw the line. Do Women get a quarter vote then? Minorities? I hope it doesn't fly. Oh and for a more humurous take, click "Barely Legal"

          edit:: and that's just 2 votes for the kid's parents. (in most cases)

            WHAT? That's discrimination, BAN HIM!

            I don't think 17- should be able to vote at all. No one that age has any idea what is good for the country, and its a tactic to get votes for a President like Bush wants to do "Open Immigration" so all the mexicans vote for him.

              So how does that mean I was discriminating if we agree. Unless you were JM (Just messing).

                  Voting. Oh and there's a proposed system in the states that will allow 14/16 year old kids to vote. But their votes will only be partial votes, like a half or a quarter vote. I was making a point that if this system is implemented, where would the government draw the line? Would the partial votes then affect other races? It's not a good idea.

                    Oh give me a break...There are many 17s that have more wits than some housewives that shops on the home shopping network and believes all the propoganda the media is feeding them... I'll say they are more dangerous selecting the wrong person than teenagers that would most likely debate these issues in school.

                    So I don't feel they should have portion of a vote...That's definetely discrimination of age...I'll say if they're smart enough to debate and discuss it in schools/friends...they should allow to vote.

                      Yea, I agree that a lot of teenagers are really educated, but it seems 18 is when kids are out on their own, and start thinking more for themsleves than they have before.

                            I hope your not one of those 17 year old kids. There are quite a few grammatical errors in there.....

                            Don't forget, they will need their incompetent housewife mothers for a ride to thier debates at school

                              There are a lot of educated 17 year olds, I agree. But there are a heck of a lot more stupid ones who think they know what they're talking about. I couldn't stand it in high school because most of the kids were stuck up about their "political beliefs."

                              14 and 15 year olds don't work, nor do they really pay taxes. 16-17 year olds don't pay much in taxes, and work anywhere that will take them. Their voting may affect the outcomes of their future, but there'll be more presidents for when it really makes a difference to them.

                              14-17 year olds voting just seems pointless because they mooch off their parents. Yeah, there are ditzy housewives who vote, but they have not so ditzy husbands who probably dictate who they vote for.
