    Default why America is having a few problems

    Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old
    fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: "Free to good
    home.You want it, you take it". For three days the fridge sat there
    without even one person looking twice at it.
    He eventually decided that people were too untrusting of this deal. It
    looked to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read: "Fridge for
    sale $50". The next day someone stole it.. These people Vote.

    While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which
    direction was North because, he explained, he didn't want the sun
    waking him up every morning. She asked, "Does the sun rise in the North?"
    When my brother explained that the sun rises in the East, (and has for
    sometime), she shook her head and said, "Oh, I don't keep up with that
    stuff". She ALSO votes!
    ==========
    I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I
    got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was
    open. I told him, "The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7days a week."He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific time?" Wanting to end the
    call quickly, I said, "Uh, Pacific." He ALSO votes!
    =========
    My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we
    overheard one of the administrative assistants talking about the
    sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the shore. She drove down in a
    convertible, but "didn't think she'd get sunburned because the car was moving". .
    She
    ALSO votes!
    ==========
    My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car It's designed to cut
    through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk My sister
    ALSO
    votes!
    ==========
    My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that the cases were
    discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases. The
    cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% discount. He ALSO votes!
    ==========
    I was hanging out with a friend when we saw a woman with a nose ring
    attached to an earring by a chain. My friend said, "Wouldn't the chain
    rip out every time she turned her head?" I explained that a person's nose
    and ear remain the same distance apart no matter which way the head is
    turned.
    My friend ALSO votes!
    =========
    I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area. So I went to
    the Lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up. She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained
    professional and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked me, "has your plane arrived yet?". SHE ALSO votes!
    =========
    While working at a Pizza Parlor I observed a man ordering a small
    pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6. He though about it for some time before responding.
    "Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat 6 .
    . .
    . Yep, he votes too.
    =========
    Now you know who elects the politicians!!

    As voting appears to cause major brain damage perhaps I should stop voting?

    The act of voting isn't the problem, voting is a good thing. It is when someone loses the election and still buys their way into office that is the real problem. But there should be better qualifications to vote other than your age, maybe a basic IQ test first.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    Sounds like our governor- she's probably the one that stole the refrigerator too!

    That would definitely thin out the voting pool.
