Rock the vote

Rock the vote may sound like a good thing to most, but not me.
Look, if you're not paying attention to what's going on in your
country, I urge you to stay home on election day. If you're too
lazy and need to be prodded to register, then don't bother, it's
obviously not that important to you. We the people don't need
or want your input, because you have nothing to say. So please,
do whatever it is you normally do(watch MTV) and leave the
important decisions to those of us who care.

This also applies to the motor voter program, another bad idea.
Then people in the media scratch their heads and wonder
why voter turnout is low at times. It's because most people who
registered to vote in this fashion were never going to vote in the
first place.

Go figure.

Politicians love it though. They know these lazy, uninformed
voters are easy to manipulate with a few good commercials.
