What about the right to not vote?

What about people who decide to not vote because they think both options are awful? That's how I felt in 2008, it was a choice between the idiot and F&*(ing Idiot. I went with Bob Barr. (The F&(*_)ing Idiot won my State by double digits my vote didn't matter)

If you don't like the options why choose?

George Carlin said it best. (forgive me it's not 100% accurate and cleaned up.) "People always say if you don't vote, you can't complain. I believe it's the opposite. If you did vote, you can't complain. Afterall you voted for the Moron in office. I didn't vote for the Moron, you did. It's your fault"
