Doesn't really matter who is president. Senators and Representatives are the ones that matter. No one understands this.

Well nowhere in the post does it actually specify it's referring to the president.

It takes the president and congress to make and enact laws and policies. You can't do something if both branches don't agree. This is why we have a system of checks and balances you ******* retard. Go back to 4th grade government and learn before you act like you know what the **** you are talking about

When it comes to passing laws (probably most important job), Congress owns the president's ass. Even if he vetoes the bill, they can still pass it if enough members of Congress agree to. As far as checks and balances go, the Judicial branch can only determine if the bill is constitutional or not. Clinton was the last Democratic president with a Republican dominated Congress. He had the people/language skills to convince the members of Congress to be loyal to their country, not party.

Ron Paul doesn't have enough support in the Republican party. Even if the people do elect him then he won't get much done because of his own party not agreeing with his ideas.

politics are a joke in the US. The whole system has become rotten to the core. The only way we can move forward in a positive manner would be to trash the current set up of Congress and a.) don't allow representatives to serve for life, b.) come up with a fair way to elect representatives. As long as Congress is split it doesn't matter who gets elected president, nothing will change. I want to live in a society that doesn't have stupid political parties (Rep./Dems) with their own retarded agendas. I am in the middle because both sides have some great Ideas but anyone who is hard left or right is delusional. **** it, elect people that want to generally see this country improve. Not some "Qualified" right hand puppet that refuses to agree with a good idea just because it came from the "opposing" side. I swear to god, you would thing our country is run by children

You gotta get rid of parties, and break the government down into smaller levels with monthly meetings for constituents at the local level. You elect your local government, with no campaigning or money involved, you simply elect between the people you know because you meet every month. Then, that local government elects a representative from amongst themselves for state government, and so on. No money/campaigning/ads involved means no corporate donors, and no corruption.

I had high hopes for Gary Johnson last year. I didn't think he'd win, but I hoped he'd get a large percentage, he had better plans for the budget than Romney or Obama.

I don't see a reason to assume one has no reason to be involved with or share opinions about their government if they choose not to vote. I simply vote for who I feel will actually benefit my country, and no man or woman running for office has convinced me of that, so why would I choose to help elect someone into office I don't want.

What he's getting at, is that if you do not vote then you have no say in how the country is ran, you can voice your opinion, it just won't matter in the slightest because you didn't try to change the outcome.

I'm not American but that's how it works here in the UK as well.

I still don't see how that is right. Not voting is essentially voting for neither candidates, it's not avoiding politics or not caring about the outcome like most people assume. As a citizen of the US, I can say what I feel and share my opinion on how the government runs my country as well as critique and complain about the candidates my fellow citizens choose to vote for. I have just as much say as anyone who votes because I have essentially voted as well.

All I'm saying is that people should not vote for someone they don't fully support just because they think they have to choose one or the other. I don't understand why people feel they HAVE to vote if they don't support a candidate, you can either vote or not. In my opinion anyone who votes for someone they don't fully support is responsible for anything that happens.

While I agree that you should have an opinion, not voting is not voting. You are abstaining from voting. This being the case governments and some people will say that you do not have any rights to complain about certain candidates or the elected President.

On one hand, that is correct. If you have not chosen a candidate then you have no real reason to complain about the outcome, it's almost like you being the final vote in who gets to be the manager of your workplace but you decide against voting and then complain about whoever gets the position.

On the other hand both candidates may both have equally disgusting traits that would cause you to believe you want neither running your country, unfortunately for you that is beyond your decision. You must pick the better of two evils, regardless of how bad they are.

You can write in a candidate, thus choosing none who are currently running. Even if you know the person you're writing in won't win, you're still taking part in the process, thereby making it your own. By refusing to vote, you are removing yourself from the process, thus removing any credibility you have in regards to your complaints.

It's like having a light bulb burn out, then sitting in the dark and complaining about it. Then, when someone asks if you looked for a new bulb, you say no and that you shouldn't have to.

What I'm saying is that I have no candidates whom I support or feel would be the best possible choice. I'm doing my part by saying non of the candidates are worthy of office and none should be elected.

And what I'm saying is that you have the write in option. i.e., you are not restricted to the candidates. You can literally vote for anyone. If you truly believe that there is not one person you can think of period who is worthy of office, then why are you still here? Go find a country that has leadership that you feel is fit.
