Her response "No, I never watch any of that. I don't vote. I never have and never will." (This woman is in her 50's I'm sure.)
I was stunned to say the least. "You don't vote?"
"No, I don't care about any of it."
Well I didn't know what to say. My response to her was, "Well I guess you can't ever complain because you don't vote." "Nope, I just don't care."
Wow. I was raised that you vote, that it is a right and also a duty. We also raised our boys to vote. Not who to vote for that is the beauty of this country to have the right to cast your vote however you see fit, but to vote. People fought and died for that right I just can't imagine not taking advantage of the privilege.
(Yes, I do realize it is her right not to vote. But it just is not within my understanding.)
