Do people REALLY know who they are voting for?

Okay I don't listen to Howard Stern at all, but was emailed this by a trusted source...and couldn't believe it! This is WHY the election and politics is so SCARY to me.

Do people REALLY care about the issues? Or do they care just if a politician looks good, or not, or because of race, or creed, or all of the above?

If you haven't delved into each presidential candidates policies than studied the issues and the view points, than I say, you shouldn't vote. Don't just vote to vote...vote because you REALLY want to see that person do what they are proposing to do when they get ELECTED! And KNOW what you are voting for...KNOW what changes they plan to make...

This actually makes me sick to my stomach...



Seriously people...seriously?

It's not the fact that they are saying they want to vote for OBAMA...it could be MCCAIN...its the fact that they have NO IDEA why they are voting for him. They think Sarah Palin is running with OBAMA...they don't even flinch at their answers they are so sure of agreeing!

Talk amongst yourselves...

Does anyone have a trash can?

Or will you hold my hair back?

I think I'm going to puke!

And also, I was fully gonna enter your contest yesterday but my scanner which was key to my post was not cooperating. I swear, one of these days I'm gonna!

That's pathetic! Did you watch 20/20 last Friday? John Stossel had the same viewpoint - not everyone should vote.

Jessica said...

That is so scary! I hope there's another trash can for me to puke in too, that is sickening that people get to vote when they are so indoctrinated and uneducated. Yuck...

McEwens said...

THAT IS SO SCARY!!! What are people thinking! AND why didnt they correct the people! Good grief!!

I will hold your hair back, we are all puking

Megan said...

OMG. Scary. Loved the lady who said McCain sounded uneducated. I wonder if she's ever heard herself speak?! :)

Aubrey said...

Yeah. My jaw just dropped. I know who I am voting for. I may NOT know each and every one of their policies or view points but I have educated myself enough to know why my choice is who it is.
So scary. Just like the white trashy lady who told McCain that Obama was an Arab. Ignorance all around!

Yeesh! It makes me a little sick to my stomach too. What happens if one of them gets elected based just on race? Hmmm...the future could be interesting, to say the least.

georgie said...

brooken'dus said...

Scary times my friend!! Scary times!

Darcie said...

No freakin' way. That is ridiculous. And scary. Very scary indeed.

wesley's mom said...

Really?!

They don't know ANYTHING?!!

I don't know what to say. I have been rendered speechless for the first time this entire election "season".

I'll hold your hair back, hommie!!

I can't believe people don't even know their running partners. I agree, if you don't wanna put in a little effort to see who you are voting for, don't vote!

You have an award on my blog!

Amanda said...

I only listened to a minute of the video, but I thought it was hilarious. People are such jackasses and Howard Stern is jackass number one. Don't get too sick over it. You knew those people were out there... didn't you?

Tiff said...

Um, I think we'd have to hold each other's hair back, cus it makes me just as sick.
This is just scary, and unfortunately there's way too much of the same thing going on everywhere....
Today a supporter of the opposite party than I'm voting for came to my door to take a survey. He asked me who I was voting for and when I told him I'd rather keep that to myself he said he was putting "undecided". HUH?!

MERRIANNE said...

WOW... SHELLE. INTERESTING!!!!!

Jen B. said...

HOLY CRAP!!! I had NOT heard that before! I sure hope people who don't have a clue don't vote!

Kristina P. said...

So, I just found your blog from Mormon Mommy blogs, and I realized that you are the blog that Alyson posted about. She just found my blog, so we're one big happy blog family.

I have no idea who I am voting for. Literally. I'm over it.

Kristina P. said...

OK, I'm back, after thinking about this a bit more. I can't listen to the clip, but I can only imagine.

I have to disagree a bit. I do get frustrated at times when I hear people are going to vote on only abortion and gay rights, and that's it. Or who is better looking, etc. I think they are ridiculous.

However, I think the great thing about our country and democracy in general is that everyone CAN vote, and for whatever reason they want to. I just feel like regardless of the reasons, the ability to vote is something I believe in very strongly, regardless of how stupid people are. :)

Kristina P. said...

Sick of me yet? You should be. ;)

I don't really understand the whole following thing, and it sort of freaks me out.

But, you know you can cut and paste my blog name and actually enter it manually into Reader, right? Easy, peasy. :)

I got this in an email today..and it's KILLING ME! I CANNOT believe this crap!
I am going to post this as well and I am going to do a little linky to you!
I'll get to this probably tomorrow! I may go to bed soon-all the shopping has worn me out! LOL

Natalie Sue said...

Oh I know.. I could not believe it when I got your email last night and listened to it. Well, actually I could believe it because I already had a feeling people were voting for someone because of looks and charisma. But I could not believe that they did not have a clue about any of the issues...and even the VP! Wow...

Mamarazzi said...

wow. i. have. no. words.

i am very scared now. and i am passing this on to EVERYONE i know.

frightening.

binks said...

I normally can't stand Howard Stern, but I found this laughable.
This is not the first election where the masses are clueless. It happens at every election for every level of government.
It amazes me that people, with no clue or desire to get a clue, vote for mundane reasons. oohhh they're cute, I think I will vote them. *gag*
Serious business,this voting, and should not be taken lightly.
