It's election day and as citizens of the United States of America, it is our responsibility to make informed decisions as to who to vote for.

Voting down the party line (either one) like an ignorant lemming is one of the greatest disservices you could do to yourself.

The "Get Out and Vote" saying should be changed to "Get Out and Learn, then Vote."

There should be a test before you're allowed to vote. If you don't know anything about the candidates then you shouldn't be allowed to vote. I guarantee you that most Americans know more about Angelina Jolie's kids than they do about the specific politics of the presidential candidates.

You are not kidding. People will go out and vote Obama because he stands for hope and change - but have no idea what he will do. They may vote for McCain because he is Republican or was a war hero, but have no idea on how he stands on taxes. We'll have record turnout today (greater than 60% - how sad), but so many of those voting don't actually know what they are voting for.
