Vote or DIE

<p>Even though I want to people to vote, isn't this slogan rediculous? I think so, but I won't say this outside because P. Diddy might be out there and listening to us, and then....</p>

<p>BTW, didn't you think that the latest South Park episode hilarious? "Vote or die! Vote or die! mother****** vote or die!"</p>

<p>It really ticked me off that they're trying to play it off as if it were nonpartisan. Eh, I'll be glad when this election is over and done with.</p>

<p>and if bush wins.</p>

<p>when the election is done then we'll have a bunch of whiners for the next 4 years no matter who wins

<p>I do not like the slogan either. However, my main complaint is that MTV and others are using peer pressure to make people vote. Not all 16-year-olds are ready to drive. Not all 21-year-olds are ready to drink. Not all 18-year-olds are ready to vote. </p>

<p>People should encourage others to educate themselves about the issues, not just blindly vote for who seems smarter or friendlier.</p>

<p>i agree with whoever said it's dumb that they're trying to play it off as non partisan. I mean, "vote for change," c'mon. and MTV's choose or lose thing too.</p>

<p>^I totally agree. I can't vote for someone I don't feel strongly for so I am not voting.</p>

<p>i don't feel strongly about the presidential candidates either but people don't realize there are plently of local and state issues that will touch you much more directly. People get so focused on the president. If you can't find one issue on the ballot you don't feel strongly for then there is something wrong. I don't think there is any excuse for not voting. Write in a candidate if you're that apathetic to either candidate.</p>

<p>Everyone's so pushy about voting because they want to vote against a president instead of voting for one. Sometimes I feel that it's not the candidates that I don't like, I can't stand their extremist obnoxious supporters.</p>

<p>I despise these get out and vote ads and groups. It's absolutely ridiculous. When you have a large electorate, bad things happen. Millions of uninformed voters will hit the polls tomorrow, a good thing? Absolutely not.
Our nation has lasted as long as it has because of voter apathy. Let the informed, interested, and intelligent vote; the uninformed, uninterested, and unintelligent should sit at home and wait for the results just like any other election year.
There is evidence that large numbers of people will not accept the legitimacy of the results if their candidate wins. Democracy is based on the legitimacy of elections. When large numbers of voters become extremely passionate for an election, there's always the chance for violence. Maybe not the huge, nationwide rejection of the government, but violence nonetheless.
To be honest, the entire electorate shouldn't even worry about the outcome. Just pray it isn't close in those battleground states.</p>
