This is the first year I'm allowed to vote, sadly and funnily the first year my brother can too(18). I was 17 at the last election and turned 18 a few months after.

But I don't think I'm going to. Is that wrong of me? I just don't really agree with either side. I hardly ever agree with the republicans but I'm not even agreeing with what Obama wants either.

I know theres all these ads trying to get young people to vote, but I see why none of us want to. I think a lot of what they say is crap just to get elected, I don't believe any of it will really happen. It reminds me of High school ASB elections, the kids say things just so everyone likes them so they can be President, VP, and down the line, but none of what they say happens, they just like the title of it.

  1. Last year was the first year I did vote (I could have before though). My rule is if you don't vote (which is fine), but then you can't bitch LOL. After Bush's first term I really wanted to bitch ---so I voted :D
    And unfortunately my parents where right again--the older I get the more important I see it (I hate it when there right :P )
    We are having issues right now trying to get our absentee ballots..if I can't will you vote FOR ME!? hehehe I want to know I got at least my one in, even if its though someone else :)
