They don’t want us to vote. If they did, we wouldn’t be voting on a Tuesday. You ever thrown a party on a Tuesday? Me neither. Because nobody would come.

You can either vote by voting or vote by not voting. Either way your actions have an impact.

Trying to sway a liberal is like trying to explain social media to a 90-year-old.

Bad leaders are chosen by good citizens who choose not to vote.

Voting is like a finely crafted violin. Its value is dependent upon the skill and character of the user. That also explains how so many fools get elected. And reelected.

Democracy means that you have the right to vote for the person you dislike the least.

Half of the eligible voters in America have never read a newspaper. Half have never voted for President. Let’s hope they’re not the same people.

The only thing we learn from a new election is that we learned nothing from the old election.

Elections are far more often won chiefly because most people vote against somebody, rather than for somebody.

Vote for ‘Nobody.’ Nobody will keep their promises. Nobody will listen to our concerns. Nobody will help the poor and unemployed. Nobody will tell the truth. And nobody cares.

The only poll that is ever important is the one that occurs on Election Day.

I recently asked my North Korean friend how things were there. He said he couldn’t complain.

Remember, absurdity is not a handicap in politics.

Today’s elections are far more about popularity than they are about the substantial issues. That’s how people like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse Ventura got elected.

I agree that Tump should never have said ‘$#it-hole countries.” The proper term is “turd world countries.”

Ahhh, politics — show business for ugly people.

Everyone would, of course, like to vote for the best man or woman. Sadly, they are never a candidate.

National elections are run and won by the same people that sell toothpaste and laundry soap on television.

Elections are always about the future. No party has ever won, or lost, an election based on the past.

Quit listening to people who say the rich determine elections. No matter how much money they have, they still only have one vote.

Voters who knowingly elect corrupt politicians are not victims, but accomplices.

A fool and his money are soon elected.

I can’t help but notice that every single person who is in favor of abortion has already been born.

In America, anyone can become president. And therein lies the problem.

How in God’s name did America manage to produce an educational system that created so many people ignorant enough to vote for Barack Obama?

Elections bear a striking resemblance to marriage. You rarely get what you thought you were choosing.

When dictators come to power, the first thing they do is take away the people’s weapons.

The only people who could ever be able to deprive the America people of the right to vote are the American people themselves.

Republicans are red, Democrats are blue. Neither one of them gives a (blank) about you.
