Okay i wanna see what everyones views are on this.



Okay say someone is of voting age and registered to vote, there is nothing stopping them from voting for president. Yet they still dont vote.



Do you think they have a right to complain about who gets elected if they dont vote?

No. If you have the right to vote and don't then you void any say you had.

They have a right to say whatever they feel like saying. A guaranteed, legal right. Yes they absolutely do have that right.



However, when you don't vote, your complaining is essentially worthless. You have the right to do so, but complaining doesnt make any kind of a difference unless it's accompanied by real action of some kind.

Well they can say whatever they want but it'd be kind of pointless and like, "hmm..k." then you shoul'd vote.

I don't vote, even though I'm able to. Why vote when all it ever is, is a bunch of lies?
Besides, if the government didn't want someone for president they wouldn't be.



I still complain (over certain things).

Do they have the right to complain? Yes. Do I think they have a reason to? No. They didn't vote.

There is nothing more infuriating than a person who complains and does nothing to try and change what they are complaining about.

Sure they have "the right" to complain. And, they should vow to make sure they educate themselves and vote the next .

I mean, yeah, I guess? I didn't vote this past election and I still have my opinions. I've never actually complained about things (even when I voted in '08), I just weigh in with my opinions when asked.

So, if voting doesn't determine president, what does?

Lol seriously? The government. But I'm not even getting into this on here because just about everyone on this site wants to act like we are a free democratic nation. Wake up and get with today's society. Have you not watched the news lately? Our phone calls aren't even private anymore
