People are drawn to what is presented to them. Anyone ever hear about that study regarding how much people will eat? People will more often than not continue eating past satiety if the food is simply placed on the table. Few there be that consider the issue at hand.
It's horrible because I now have to choose between Romney and Obama to be my President. Voting for another is essentially throwing my vote away. But out of principle, I cannot vote for either one. I do not trust Romney. He flip-flops. And I disagree with Obama's policies. So what can I do?
My vote then becomes a symbolic gesture of my refusal to play the game. But who's really going to notice?
