I consider voting as both a right and privilege, but not a responsibility or obligation.

This may be contrary to mainstream “get out the vote” schools of thought, but I think its fine when citizens don’t bother to vote – it makes my vote that much more meaningful. Why twist the arms of the dispassionate / neutral / unconcerned people to invest an hour of their lives every couple of years to vote their own interests? Let them stay home and watch TMZ, it will result in a better parking spot for me!
