Hello everyone and welcome to my first non-kpop related video haha. Well, I pretty much said it all in the video but I was cut-off while talking because my memory card ran out of space [which is why the ending is so abrubt] and a few things that I wanted to say weren’t filmed, so I guess that I’ll say them here.
I believe that choosing not to vote is stupid because voting is one of the only ways that the average person can contribute to what goes on in their government. Pretty much everything is handled by the three branches of government and the only way for people to have some semblance of control over what happens in their country is for them to help choose who represents them. Also, if you don’t vote then I’m sorry, but you’ve pretty much lost all right to complain about those in power. If you decide not to vote then you shouldn’t whine when the president doesn’t do what you want him [or maybe her someday] to do. Even if the person you voted for doesn’t win then at least you can rest easy knowing that you did literally all that you could to try to do the best for your country. And really, that’s all anyone can ask of you.
P.S. I know Halo 4 comes out the same day as the elections [November 6] and believe me, if I was 18, I’d have serious trouble dragging myself away from my Xbox to vote, but it doesn’t take too long and every vote makes a difference; so go out and do our country proud 🙂
P.P.S. At first, I thought that saying “politics is” sounded wrong because of the plural/non plural confusion but I looked it up to be sure and it turns out that saying “politics is” is fine, depending on the situation. I’m using it as the subject of politics instead of a factor within politics. It’s like with statistics: ‘statistics is very interesting’ works because it’s in reference to the subject but ‘these statistics are very interesting’ also works because it refers to statistical data. I thought some people might want to bring the grammar hammer down on me so this is just a little fyi.
Anyway, see you guys next time; I’ll try to post more frequently! 🙂
