Did you read my entire comment, or did your eyes glaze over after the first sentence? I addressed the "truth" of that statement, which is that not voting doesn't give you any moral superiority. Here it is again, just so you don't miss it.

In other words, you help to guarantee the reelection of Obama. Carlin may joke about being free to whine about the failures of our government, but I prefer to try to staunch the tide of failure to the greatest extent possible.That's the truth.
Yes, and a core of conservatives in the house and a Republican takeover of the senate will mitigate a lot of his more liberal instincts. Romney is far from perfect, but he's the better of the two choices that we face in November, and anyone who can't see that is delusional.
