with all due respect, I don't agree with the 'didn't vot/can't gripe' POV. there is something worse than not voting, and that's an uninformed vote. that's how dolts like the second Bush got into office (twice!). unfortunately, that will always happen in a popular vote - when you let a population speak out, the message is the average of their intelligences, which of course ends up being thoroughly average and unresearched. that's why our government is so bland and uninspired; it's run by the average when it should be run by the best and brightest.

i tell you, one of the saddest days of my adult life was when i realized i was smarter than the president and leader of the free world, and likely by a significant margin. afterwards, hearing my coworkers' reasons for voting for him completely soured me to the political process.
