Default Voting

Do you think organizations like "Rock The Vote" should exist? Their main goal is to get younger Americans to vote. This seems like a good idea on paper, but is it okay for someone who doesn't know where any candidates stand on any of the issues to make a blind vote, or a vote based solely on the appearance of a candidate?

Not sure if any of you saw on Xbox Live the "Rock The Vote" videos. But I watched in amazement as "Soulja Boy" tried to encourage 18 - 24 year olds to "get out and vote". I challenge anyone to take something meaningful/insightful/thought out or intelligent from the bullsh..t he most likely read off a card.

I'm not saying that people should be denied their right to vote at all, but should people vote just because they have the right to? Is it better to vote on a coin toss rather than not voting at all? Is it better to vote for who you believe is the lesser of two evils?

They aren't trying to say go out and vote for some random person you know nothing about. They don't exactly say it but they are also encouraging people to research the candidates and then vote. I mean I see where you're coming from but that's how I see it.

It's so weird how we don't know who to trust anymore. The media or the actual candidates, the media is always talking about how they are lieing. But who should we trust?

What a normative statement. I'd really question that accusation.

This section might not be for you.

Vote for who you belive in. Why vote for the lesser than two evils? That is bullshit.
