If you were an Iraqi would you vote? Why or why not?
I think I'd stay home and wait for round 2.

1. You mean, would I risk my life to vote?
No.

But then, I don't have any children. Having seen similar questions elsewhere, the answer appears to be tied to whether or not a person has dependents.

And I get that.

2. I'd probably be an "insurgent", so no.
Iraqis who love their country enough to defend it don't have the right to participate in Bush's Iraq "Democracy".

3. That was kind of what I was getting at.
I wouldn't risk my life for someone Else's democracy,But I may be Jaded by my hatred for the Bushies.So i don't really know.

5. If I were an expatriate Iraqi living in Wisconsin
I would vote. ;)
If I were living in Iraq now I doubt I'd go out much. I'd be skeptical about any elections the Americans helped to set up, I'm sure. :nuke:
