I chose not to vote for the first time this last election. I'm not at all sure that I made the right choice. But I did/do have my reasons. I decided that always choosing to vote for the "lesser" of two evils might not be sending the right message to my representatives. I have felt quite betrayed by the democratic party over the last two to four years. And this election I just decided that my congressman (Tom Perriello VA 5th district) wasn't going to get my vote just because the other guy is probably (almost certainly) worse. My reasons for refusing to vote for Perriello. -His beliefs that heath care is not a right -His unwillingness to draw a clear line between his religion and his politics. -His choice to constantly define and vote as a quite conservative liberal Now I also liked a-lot of things about Perriello, mainly that he was always quite honest about his beliefs and intentions. But in the end I really didn't feel like he deserved my vote, so I didn't vote at all. Has anyone else ever felt like not voting is perhaps their best way to express their political feelings?
