"The Loudmouths Too Lazy To Vote"
When I come across a Facebook or Twitter posting that relates to our current national problems the first question I ask myself is "did they vote?". When I monitor the comments from a news website's news article, the first thing I think is "all boots, no horse"; that is "they love to shoot off their mouth but won't get off their ass and go exercise their citizen responsibility which is voting.
Instead, these loudmouths sit on their broad asses and compose a keyboard symphony of raps against all that they deplore. They have all the answers and are not shy about spouting off about them. Yet, voting is just too much to ask of them. Apparently they have no concept of cumulative math since their excuse for not voting is "I'm just one vote, I can't influence change". What a load of crap; since so many of them feel that way, they, in effect, are right. They see no moral reason to be the one to step up and vote.
Take a look at the table below; these are pitiful statistics. Less than 38 percent of eligible voters came out to vote in 2010 and only a little more than half of you voted in the last Presidential election. So, you who didn't vote: If you don't like "Barry", shut the hell up!
