Election apathy

So we’ve got a little over two weeks until the presidential election and early voting has begun. But I’ve got a serious case of election apathy, y’all. Not because I don’t support any candidates. I support Obama 100% and will vote for him… if I vote. But I honestly can’t see the point of voting since my blood bleeds blue and I’m stuck in a red state.

But it’s your patriotic duty! (Since when have I ever been patriotic?) Every vote counts! (No, it really doesn’t.) You won’t have the right to complain if you don’t vote. (First Amendment, bitches.)

Honestly, I’m not going to go into the pros and cons of the electoral college when I barely understand why we use it. But the fact is, my vote would be empty and will not help my candidate in any way. I do feel like I should vote on behalf of my mother, who, not being a U.S. citizen, isn’t allowed to vote, but hers wouldn’t count either. So I just don’t know if I’m even going to bother voting this time. At least it’s my right to do so.
