    Do you want to deride people for not voting?  Or do you want to encourage people to vote?  This question is not rhetorical.

      One “Leader” was on Hardball.  Chris Matthews pointed out that you could lose almost everything but you have the right to vote.  He pointed out that the Dems were the people trying to help them.  She kept saying that each person was going to ask 5 people to not vote and then have those 5 ask people not to vote.  She didn’t hear anything.  He was almost begging her to vote and she didn’t hear it.

      Even if they voted against what I believe in, I would respect that they voted and were part of the system.  You don’t vote than you didn’t earn the right to complain that the system isn’t helping you.
