If You Didn’t Vote-STFU!

This blog is NOT meant to be political.
This blog IS meant to be Pro American.
I will NEVER understand why, since we have been given the right to elect those who would represent us, those who would enforce the law, those who would make new law for our benefit, that many if not most of us choose to ignore that right.
But more importantly, why those same people ignore the right to vote the bastards out who screw it all up to begin with.
The other day, one of my (unnamed) co workers declared with pride he FINALLY voted for the first time in his life, and this young man is quite a few years past 18.
He had a friend running for office and wanted to help.
Well, that’s cool, I guess.
Not sure if his friend won or not, besides the point.
In this case, I rarely if ever hear him bitch and complain about the electoral process.
I know there are quite a few who want to be just drones and minions and go about their day, with not a care, or worry, in the world about how things get done.
Those people I feel pity for.
Those people, if they really did care, just might change the system one day.
Or never, I can’t worry about those fools, and I call them fools for one reason.
IT’S OUR RIGHT TO BE A PART OF THE PROCESS, YET THESE PEOPLE SIT ON THEIR ASSES AND LET THE WORLD FLY BY.
By and large, these people don’t know about politics, don’t care about politics, don’t talk about politics, probably don’t know who is in charge of things.
Those aren’t the people who piss me off.
No, the people who piss me off are those who DON’T vote, but feel they have a RIGHT to complain about how “the system” doesn’t work for them.
Like it’s someone else’s responsibility to pick the right leaders who will do the right thing.
I refer to the late great Morton Downey Jr. for the simple answer for these jackholes.
WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW THINGS ARE WHEN YOU DON’T DO A DAMN THING ABOUT IT?
Did you vote this year?
Did you vote last year?
Do you remember the last time you voted?
Did you EVER vote?
Joe Dolce, if you please.
Don’t like how things are run? CHANGE THEM!
Don’t like who is in office? GET SOMEONE ELSE!
Don’t like a law? GET IT CHANGED!
It’s very simple, if you’re reading this, I am assuming you care about the American political system, and agree (somewhat) with me.
If you really don’t participate in the system, and keep your mouth and opinion to yourself, stay in your quiet little corner and stay away from me, we’ll get along just fine.
But if you’re a numb nuts who also does not vote, yet feels the need to jump on your soapbox every day, the only thing your hot air is doing in contributing to global warming.
Don’t vote and don’t care, and don’t complain, go with God.
Vote, do something about it, you have the right to complain AND try to change it.
Don’t vote, and you have diarrhea of the mouth when it comes to politics, try smoking five packs of smokes a day, in time that will shut you up.
WE WERE GIVEN THE RIGHT TO HAVE OUR COUNTRY RUN AS BEST IT CAN, BUT ONLY IF EVERYONE TAKES PART IN THE PROCESS!
PARTICIPATE, BE PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY, OR GET THE HELL OUT AND LEAVE IF FOR THOSE OF US WHO REALLY CARE.
