All the kids ain't doin' it

Craig Ferguson has a great clip on You Tube right now. A piece:

If you don’t vote you’re a moron. I know that you say, “Not voting is a vote”. No it isn’t; not voting is just being stupid. Voting is not sexy, is not hip, it is not fashionable, it’s not a movie, it’s not a video game, all the kids ain’t doin’ it. Frankly, voting is a pain in the ass, but here’s a word, look it up, it is your DUTY to vote.

You can watch the whole clip here.

Hmm... I actually agree with the notion that not voting is a way of voting, if one does it out of conscience. If one does it out of laziness or ignorance, then yes, they are a dumbass. Until our country develops a "none of the above" option for our ballot, I believe someone can for reasons of conscience refuse the choices presented them.

"None of the above" is an option - you can write in any candidate.

Which is essentially the same as not voting. Except you're saving gas... eco-friendly!

Of course, I started this line of thinking in the 2000 election. It really seemed like there was little difference between Gore and Bush to 17 year-old Quinn. I decided that if I could've voted, I would've voted for Nader. What an idiot 17 year-old Quinn turned out to be.
