Rock the Vote?

This is what I found when google-ing "Rock the Vote."

My point. Exactly.

Who is being marketed here?  A 65 year old woman?  I didn't think so.  Ok so I completely get the whole "Rock the Vote 2012" blah blah blah, Go Vote, Exercise your Right, blah, blah.  But I don't. 

Ok meh meh meh you're already not going to like what I have to say but I'm saying it anyway.  So go ahead, get ready to talk badly about me behind my back, drive by my house so you can throw eggs and spit in my yard, etc etc.  I'll be sure to cry about it whenever I get a chance. My guess it will probably be sometime after the laundry, cooking, cleaning, *paying*job, baby, husband and mediocre social life.

I'm sure it's no shock to you that I don't hate Mitt Romney because he's rich.  And those who do: Go pull yourself up by your bootstraps and worry about something that matters. That's about as bad as hating on Sarah Palin for running for office while she had a young child with disabilities at home*

*{Please. Feel free to dislike her for other reasons. Like being stupid.}

Really?  The last time anything to the effect of "Know your role/Stay home and raise them babies/You ain't welcome here in these parts" to a man was. um. Never.  And coming from a bunch of Democrats at that.  How about that for your women's rights? 

Apparently voting Republican means you hate women.   Per the stakes people put in their yards reading "Vote for Women's Rights Vote Democrat."  Obviously since I'm all about an over-achieving-vagina-having-powerhouse of a lady, I'm a Democrat?  The internet says vagina's vote for Obama.

Additionally, not that you asked, I don't hate Barak Obama because the nation as a whole is still in debt.  I'm not a poly-sci gal mahself, I'm just a little ol' nurse not minding my business but as far as I can tell the nation would be in one hundred thousand billion gabzillion dollars in debt if there were a Republican in office.

How.Ev.Ah.  Do you really need to go rock the vote if you read more xyz on so and so's facebook than abc's on such and such's twitter?  Does that give you a right to vote?  I don't really know that opinion would count as: "informed." 

Of course this is America and it is a right to vote and it is wise to exercise that right, as those before all of us worked hard for the democracy in which we live.  But I daresay.  I don't support one rocking the vote just vote for the sake of voting because BranGelina said so.  I don't support the consensus to choose a favorite political party because your most favorite rapper {I mean who doesn't love Jay Z?!} told us his.   How about this.  How about you should not Rock the Vote.  Until you {the hypothetical and /or theoretical "you"} use this user-friendly guideline:
1.) know what ones views are. about something. anything.  {Just know they're yours and not your most special best friend.}
and 2.) Know what both opposing parties views are on said something/anything of your choice.  And then decide whether or not you agree.

Then go rock the vote. 

That being said, I can tell you this.  Probably, whoever Miley Cyrus {Whose God-Given Birth name is Destiny} is voting for.  I'm probably going for the other one.

Naow.  Who's going to tell her to do something about that tacky camel toe?
