'Why I don't vote'

First, I want to thank you for doing the legwork on your endorsements. It's refreshing to see where the candidates actually stand on issues rather than how they feel about their opponents.

I get many raised eyebrows when I tell folks that I don't vote on candidates anymore. I have been increasingly disgusted, as many are, with the slander and smears. I don't have television anymore and I rarely listen to the radio because of it. My mailbox is crammed with it, and the roadsides are a study in who-can-post-the-most-signage. Who wants to wade through all that crap? It's not about the greater good, it's about agendas.
