"Not voting on principle is cynical opportunism."
Complete baloney. Some of us have kids and grandkids, we vote according to what we honestly believe will benefit them or, at least, hurt them the least. Your idealism is not a realistic way to deal with the world, real people have to deal with the consequences of your priveleged view of the world, if you had to share those consequences you would think more pragmatically.

Danni ,I'm not going to berate you or belittle you, but after 5 1/2 years your are still saying the same things you have from the start and before Obama was elected.
But NONE of it has come true, its not going to.
Its the science, the emotion , the ides you have that are the trouble.
Nobody want people to go hungry, or people who need medicine not to get it...nobody.
The big Govt. idea in the fashion the left dreams of can not work ,has not worked and will not work...the premiss is flawed.
Govt. can not mandate wealth to a nation, it must let the people, market and the demand for products dictate profit, with out renewed profit, there is only only so much peanut butter in the jar to spread around ....if nobody is making more peanut butter........you can't very well spread around that of which there is none of....fair or not fair.
I don't want my tax dollars going to a billion dollar company....they'll have to live with being a multi-million dollar Co.
I'm for equal taxation, but I'm not for no taxation.
I want every citizen to vote, but I don't want people who are not allowed to vote for what ever reason to vote.
I don't want the planet polluted, but I'm a natural organism of this biosphere not something that leaked out of a Chem. Vat.
The insanity of the left that I should in no way come in contact or effect the environment in any way, like by breathing in & out is foolish.
I don't have time to take this any further .....5 1/2 years of straight failures is a rather telling breach in a person or persons grasp of the events taking place around them and their ability to understand that they do not see those events in the stark light of reality, but continue to perceive someone or something else as the problem, as opposed to looking inward and realizing the mistakes they have made that has brought them and others to the inescapable place they are now.....
Something like General George Custer when he saw all of the Indian warriors, the moment when he realized, that his arrogance, bluster and the worshipping press could take him no futher.
We need to stabilize our economy and energy needs now....with what we know works now,
Get the Govt. out of the way...let business do business .....way more peanut butter that way.
