Don’t Vote

Most sites you’ll visit today will tell you to go vote.

Not here. Not me.

I mean, yeah, I think you should and all – if you’re informed. If you’re not, though, and you’re voting “because you’re supposed to” or “because you hate so-and-so” or “you want to write-in Q*Bert,” just do us all a favor and don’t vote, okay?

If you’re uninformed: don’t vote.

If you’re too young: don’t vote.

If you’re an idiot: don’t vote.

If you’re Canadian: don’t vote here.

If you’re voting because someone told you you should: don’t vote.

If you’re voting to get out of that “you can’t say anything bad if you didn’t vote” clause: don’t vote.

If you’re dead: don’t vote.

If you’ve already voted: don’t vote again.

If, however, you know anything about the issues: vote. That includes people who are voting basically on one or two issues. Know the issue, know the candidate, and vote.

You know who you are, and you know what you need to do (or not do).
