“I don’t vote because I believe if you vote, you have no right to complain. People like to twist that around, I know. they say-they say well: “If you don’t vote you have no right to complain,” but where’s the logic in that ? If you vote and you elect dishonest, incompetent people, they get into office and screw everything up, well, you are responsible for what they have done. You caused the problem, you voted them in. You have no right to complain. I, on the other hand, who did not vote? who did not vote? Who, in fact, did not even leave the house on election day, am in no way responsible for what these people have done and have every right to complain as loud as I want about the mess that you people created and that I have nothing to do with.”~George Carlin, late comedian & actor

I have to concur with this white man on this point quoted from his cable comedy tv special. Because I feel the same way, and it makes logical common sense, of what he’s saying too. Unfortunately most (the masses) of people would never get or comprehend on this message he speaks about. Due to people arrogance and lack of knowledge of the candidates they’re voting for, and due to their emotion and dedication for their candidate of choice, and due to their loyalty of that party affiliation they proudly represent, or just simply because someone looks black, when it regards “President Obama,” that most black people would vote only solely base on the fact just because he or she looks black, instead of playing close attention and doing their research on that black candidate and their politics, and how that can affect them or not affect them.
To watch and listen too this quote of George Carlin above.
Here’s the link and clip of his cable comedy tv special.
