Not Your Typical Election Day Post

Unlike a lot of people bloggers, I'm not going to sit here and remind you to go vote.
Because, quite frankly, I couldn't care less if you do or not.

I try to stay out of politics, for the most part.  I've seen it cause way too many arguments over the years.

The following statement will probably result in a loss of followers, but who cares...
Truth be told, I never registered to vote.   
I've never been interested in politics (in the least) and let's be honest here--my one measly vote will not make a difference.  

When asked who I would vote for, I said "Oh, I don't know, probably Romney."
Friend: "Why?"
Me: "Because he seems to be for the rich people."
Friend: "You aren't rich."
Me: "No, but I don't like my hard earned tax dollars going to Joe Shmoe sitting over there on his unemployed, disabled butt. 
Friend: "You clearly haven't followed the debates."
Me: "Nope, and that's why I'm not voting."

If you are an Obama fan (which a lot of people seem to be), I bet you're glad I'm not taking my politically uneducated rear to the polls.
If you're a Romney fan, I have my fingers crossed for you!

If you're going to leave me nasty comments about how it's my civic duty or Christian obligation to vote, save it for a non-voting blogger who cares, because I sure as heck don't!

Regardless of who wins, the sun will come up tomorrow (unless you live in a Rain Forest, prone to rain) and the world will keep spinning (which is a weird concept, if you think about it).

On the other hand, here is what I would vote for:
Stop giving deadbeat parents repeated chances to get their children back. One strike, you're out.
Student Debt forgiveness.  Those MBA loans are going to suck!
4 day work weeks
Cheap gas
Lower taxes (which every President promises)
Weight Watchers Point values on every product so I don't have to sit and calculate everything I shove into my mouth. 
Oh and, every person will have to pass tests in order to reproduce. None of this having 9 kids by 8 different daddies, living off the government crap. 



  1. Try isidewith.com it's pretty fun! (You seem pretty republican/libertarian to me, which is what I am)
    It's not too difficult to find a couple things you support a candidate on. I really hope you change your mind one day and vote, it's a pretty cool privilege we have!
    But hey, as long as I don't hear you complaining about anything economy related in the next 4 years, it's your choice.

  2. I don't follow politics either.

    I would vote on those same things with you! Great post :)

  3. I got a bunch of stares from my coworkers yesterday when I admitted that i'm not registered. But the way I see it, it doesn't do anybody any good for me to vote when I don't know what the hell I'm doing. Gradually I am becoming more and more aware of everything that goes on in politics, but I am not educated enough to put in my 2 cents on who the president should be and what referendums should be passed. Also, I get so damn sick of seeing all the political ads that just bash their opponents that I don't feel like I want to vote for ANY of the people who are so immature that they have to result to name calling and bullying to get a vote.

  4. Haha, I'm with you on the WW points. Hello, I don't feel like calculating all that shiz!

    All of the, "Go vote!" Facebook posts/Tweets/Blogs are so annoying.

    I vote. I don't feel the need to talk about it, or tell anyone to go do it.

  5. You'd totally have my vote;)
    LOL to the WW points on everything...that would be so freaking handy!!!

  6. I can't stop laughing at "Regardless of who wins, the sun will come up tomorrow (unless you live in a Rain Forest, prone to rain) and the world will keep spinning (which is a weird concept, if you think about it)."

  7. I jut can't wait for it all to be over. I'm so sick of hearing about it.

  8. I don't judge people for not voting...I'm more judgmental of the ignorant rants that the "voters" are spurting. I voted, but very few people even know who I voted for. Someone's ALWAYS going to get pissed off, so I'd rather just not divulge. Let's just say I have similar views to yours, and NEITHER candidate can accommodate them, so eff them both. Haha.

  9. I know how you feel. Right now my main concern is staying off Facebook. lol. These status' are killing me. I hope you've been well, hun. If you get a sec, I'd love if you'd check out my latest outfit post. xo


  10. I like your last bit about tests to reproduce. Control yourselves if you can't handle it for crying out loud!!!


  11. Pahahaha! I love your requirements for president.

  12. I loved this post. Particularly the part about weight watchers points. Lol

  13. Love this too, because I'm the same way. I let my husband choose what to vote and then copy him.

    Partially, because I know our world is broken, and the president won't really matter - but mostly because the idea of american politics peeves me and I don't want to subscribe to it.


Your comments make my day!
