“Are we so lost we have to be sold our own democratic right?”

The election. You just can't get away from it these days. ;) I'm not one to usually go on about politics--political discussions tend to end up in some form of debate and I'm not usually well-versed enough to argue my position. That's not to say that I don't have strong opinions regarding the issues and the candidates. I think "Sarah Palin hates polar bears" cleared up any confusion one might have regarding where I stand. Another view I hold strongly was best represented by Craig Ferguson in his Sept. 10 monologue on "The Late, Late Show."

Vote, dammit!
Vote, dammit!

If you don’t vote, you’re a moron!

Here’s the monologue. It’s a little long, but well worth it.

As a newly-naturalized citizen of the United States, he does a great job of expressing his outrage and confusion regarding the voting process (or lack thereof) in America. I’ve never been a huge fan of his, until this show.

After his monologue, he kept on going. πŸ™‚ Here’s part 2. Again, well worth the watch.

I’m interested to hear what the rest of you think…

One Thought on ““Are we so lost we have to be sold our own democratic right?””

  1. …it’s a shame when naturalized citizens are more disgusted and appalled at our voting, or lack thereof than we are!

    If ya don’t vote, don’t let me hear ONE WORD come out of your mouth about this country, economy, or anything else that you declined to have a right to have a say in by not voiting,
    for the next 4 years!!!!!

    63% of this country not getting off their lazy butts to go and do something that people in other countries are DYING to try and win the right to do is reprehensible!! I may not be able to change things by myself, but when you get the 2-3 million “I’s” that DON’T vote going, well, might just work!

    My motto? “Vote early, vote often!” and I’ll try!
