"The trouble with politics is that we keep electing politicians."
you mean people you know on how they vote or what? i personally lose respect for people who take the certainly more popular opinion of "oh i have to vote because people died..." not me. i have more respect for those who don't vote for someone they don't agree with just because someone tells them they have to. "but how do you expect it to change if you don't vote?" they say. well how do you expect it to change if you vote for the same 2-party cookie-cutter candidates over and over. sorry. felt like venting.
i know someone who is voting McCain/Palin simply over one issue, the issue of abortion and I have def lost some respect for them over this.
then again, I lost a lot of respect for some people I knew over the last election. voting isnt like dating you have to vote with your brain, not your heart.
