Real Swing State Voter

Heard last night...

"I voted for Obama last time but this time I'm not voting at all this year because I am disappointed in both of them."

I tried to point out that voting is an action, not an opinion poll or form of personal literary expression, but to no avail.

"I wish there was a third choice."

She thinks Romney should not be President but that it would be false or unfair to reward Obama.

People have many incoherent thoughts about voting.

But keep trying to persuade them as to the right path. A thankless task, but necessary.

1. What about all the other races? Is she not participating in any because

she doesn't like the top 2 prez candidates?

3. And that's a big problem.

No involvement and we end up with loonies on school boards and city councils.

5. True. Tell her she still needs to go vote, and pick someone else for prez if she feels that strongly

about it. But no reason to give up on all the races because she doesn't like two candidates.
