ignoring my options

as the primaries start wrapping up and as we start to really get a feel for who we'll be voting for in november, i'm feeling torn. because i hate every single candidate. i think i won't vote, but i feel awful about shirking such an important responsibility due to a sour taste in my mouth. so i want to hear about your plans and opinions. should not voting even be an option?

i KNOW. i don't want to vote either. it really is very confusing, the real question is- does voter turn-outs at the polls really send a message to anybody???

Hmmm. This has been a conundrum for me, too. Being a registered Republican, my choice is kinda made for me on my ballot. Ronald Reagan said to vote for someone you agree with 80% of the time. I don't quite reach that percentage with anyone, but I lean much farther toward the conservative end of the spectrum. Neither of them are my ideal, by any stretch.
