You know that I don't vote, right? Not even registered. I like being part of the problem.

John,

There's really no excuse for that type of mentality any longer. I can understand the idea of picking "the lesser of two evils" made people apathetic for many, many years...but we're headed in a new direction. America is about to change in historic ways.

Go to Barack Obama's Town Hall Meeting today in downtown Kansas City. It's free and open to the public.

If after seeing him speak, you still feel like not voting is your best option and you really enjoy "being part of the problem," then that's okay.

But I imagine he'll change your mind.

Barack Obama

It's not that I think voting isn't my best option, I honestly, truly, just don't care. I know that's horrible, but it's true. I kept trying to make myself care, but it never stuck. I know a lot of people don't vote because they wonder what the point is, but that's not me. I know there's a point in voting, and I actually am registered (I was kidding), but after voting in so many elections (local too) I realized that I never felt any sense of accomplishment or propriety or whatever...I just felt like I'd wasted my time, and spent my vote on things that I ultimately didn't care one way or another about. Essentially, I don't vote because I don't think I care enough to deserve to vote. Probably doesn't make sense, but for now, that's just the way it is.

Incidentally, I wanted to go to the Obama thing just because he's an interesting and erudite fella, but I couldn't get the day off work. Maybe in another four years, then.

You're going to skewer me in a future Foxymoron, aren't you?
