Election Day is tomorrow.
This video brings something to mind: "Insanity in individuals is something rare; but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs it is the rule." – Nietzsche
Oooh, so the fucking celebrities told me to vote, that means I should go and do that, I guess. The more shit they pull, the more I back civil disobedience. The day I see a politician actually give a fucking shit about someone other than himself is the day I finally bring myself to the polls. Until then, no.

I predict Obama will win and not only win but will get close to a super majority. I think he will get at least 350 EVs at a minimum.

I detest this ad on the grounds of that it assumes that the people who watches it will vote because of the infallible advice of the godly celebrities. What i hate even more is that they unfortunately are right, some people will be swayed to do this just because of the celebs instead of researching the subject itself and do an educated choice, it may not count against the juggernaut of ignorant voters but at least you stayed true to yourself.
Also: "Dont you care about terrorists?" Oh fuck you. And "Well get the first female vp", yeah funny choice on the first one.
For crying out loud, sir, read the comment policy. It’s three paragraphs long, it’ll take you TWO MINUTES.
It’s a good message with a good way of expressing that. My biggest gripe is that it’s too long. It could have made its point earlier and just as effectively without going on and on.
I live in California where it’s guaranteed to vote blue so my vote for president truly doesn’t matter. With that in mind I’ll probably wind up voting for Barr.
Although there are some state issues we get to vote on where I plan to make my voice heard. You wouldn’t believe the amount of crap people are making up to justify a ban on gay marraige here.

What does McCain have going for himself.
Well, he’s an inventor (he discovered fire), he’s a historian (being witness to all of histories greatest events), he helped create democracy (I’m pretty sure his signiture is on the declaration of independance), and he’s a religious man (he knew Jesus when he was only knee-high to a grasshopper)
OK, no more McCain is old jokes.
—You are likely to be eaten by a Grue.
Obama is going to win anyway. He’ll fuck us.
If McCain wins, he’ll fuck us too. Or Palin will.
Fuck man, I don’t know who to belive. Damned if I do, damned if I don’t, y’know? Obama is lying and McCain is too.
There are other canidates, but I don’t know if they’ll be on the Ohio ballot. I’m still voting for Obama, but he can’t be as bad as the Bush was, right?

I voted early. It’s too late for me to not vote.
And another great qoute to add to Uncyclopedia XD
The schools that so frequently abuse autistic children?
The schools that eat up a HUGE chunk of our taxes, yet demand double or even triple what they get now?
The schools that, when compared to private schools with ten times the amount of services, take a factor of two times the money?
The schools that spend huge amounts of money building large stadiums and maintaining football teams, but still have trouble with literacy rates?
No, our tax money is NOT well managed. It’s like trying to smother a fire with paper money. It doesn’t work, it’s inefficient, abusive, and the laughing stock of the rest of the world.
I was pulled out of public schools in eigth grade and spent the rest of my school years recovering from abuse, and helping other people still in it fight in IEP meetings that the school came in with eight to ten people against average joes to intimidate them.
I spent 200 days (2 hours a day) total in 4 years in actual academics. When I came out to do my standardized testing, my lowest score was still well above what the average public school graduate does, and in many cases I came near to maxing the tests.
If our schools were doing what they were supposed to, I would have been WAY behind. I *SHOULD* have been scoring in the bottom 10%, not the top 8-5%.
Yet now I’m a 4.0 student on an academic scholarship eyeing some of the best colleges in the country and having a very real chance of getting in.

Well I do believe he’s done ads for no on 8 (I don’t wanna drag the arguments in here, so I’ll just hope you’ve heard about it.)

Oh yeah the one with Sarah Silverman? I dunno doesn’t she usually warrant a ‘NSFW’ tag? 😛
Someone I was talking to was wondering why you couldn’t do that in the PS3 version, I said ‘well with all the other controversy that this game’s getting, do you really think we need that on top of all of it?’
Global Warming? Don’t both candidate drink that kool-aid?
Just for your information, I’m not a US citizen either.
And this is why this country is in the crappy state it’s in – because people are more interested by my use of the word ‘sheeple’ than by my message. They’re more interested in finding a cheap laugh than they are by the weight of stuff that they’ve ignored – stuff that has undermined the revolution that happened 232 years ago. I mean it seems to me that, if you’re all going to be more interested in wasting your energy on irrelevancies, the American Revolution was wasted on you.
What rumors fo your death?
As for your law career, ya, that’s dead for sure.
Sheeple? Who are you, DJHives?
They arent complaining… They are making a point that if you do care and if you do want to complain, now is the time.
Anyways to state that they are rich and will never have to worry about these things is daft, the may be wealthy now, but it doesnt mean they always were, or that they shouldnt be interested in the welfare of those people that pay to see them in their next movie.
The whole point of the video is to get celebs that people recognise to make a valid point… if you dont give a crap about how things are run then dont vote… if you do, then there is no point in not voting and then complaining about it later… this is your chance to choose who you want in charge.
I fail to understand why everyone assumes the government is irresponsible and incompetent. The government didn’t cause the subprime crisis and the resulting destruction of the economy. Private industry and "greed is good" capitalism caused it.
As for taxes, you know those roads you like to drive on? The schools you send your kids to? The police and firemen that protect you? Guess what? That stuff all costs money and someone needs to pay for it. I get a kick out of listening to people b**ch and moan about how the schools are failing and there aren’t enough cops and the roads need to be fixed and then turn around and say, "but I want my taxes lowered."
If people are THAT stupid, I don’t think we want them voting anyway. Unfortunately, I suspect that a good number of voters don’t have a clue what either candidate’s positions are. They’re voting because they think "this party good, that party bad" and trust every smear ad they see on TV. Hooray for uniformed idiots deciding who the next president will be.
Since it’s Hollywood, I’m going to assume they’re stupid. Not that it would matter anyway; they make more money on one movie than most people probably make in their entire lives. They can afford to lose half of it to taxes.
If they cared for real they’d donate half their pay to the organizations they supposedly support, making government aid to the poor irrelevant since private charities would be able to give out millions in aid each year and do it more effectively than the government can ever hope to.
Hehe, I can’t vote tomorrow (I’m not a citizen), but even if I could vote, I wouldn’t participate in a system in which you get a ‘real’ choice of only two candidates. A two party system offers only one candidate more than a dictatorship. Until the US gets proportional representation, it’s democracy in name only. And it’s not as if either party (or a majority of the American sheeple) is interested in changing that.
Darfur? Neither party cares about Darfur. After all, we had a Democratic president during the Rwandan genocide. Did the democrats do anything ? Hell no!
Healthcare? Is either party offering a plan for universal healthcare? Hell no! And if you think they are, you need to look at their plans.
Welfare, minimum wage, the economy, the war? It’s not as if the folks we’re voting for tomorrow haven’t been around for the last 7 years, and it’s not as if these issues came up yesterday. And you think a vote in tomorrow’s election is going to change anything for the better except for removing the Bush administration (which will happen whatever anyone does tomorrow). Wake up people, and smell the coffee. Your vote changes NOTHING!
So I’ll stick with sitting on my couch, because it’s not as if my vote – or yours – matters anyway.
Rock on Jack, keep on with your crusade, we could all use a good laugh.
Tell me, how do you intend to handle the inevitable "Kill Children" mod in Fallout 3?

If they had samuel L jackson on there, I’d vote
"Vote mutha fucka!" "Don’t Vote. I dare you. I dare you to not vote."
colorful cast though…some i was surprised.
and was the point in putting this on because of the slightest mention of halo 2 and drugs in the same sentence?

good speech, but in my opinion, considering the fact that they will be those involved in the pay-much-more-taxes-rich-dude Obama premise, either they are stupid or they care for real.
The only thing I find annoying about the video is how a bunch of celebrities who collectively have more money than God are complaining about education, health care, and the economy. These people will never have to worry about any of those things. They’ll never have to worry whether they can feed their families, or keep a roof over their heads. And that makes their message ring a little hollow.
I wont be voting tomorrow, even though Im an enrolled voter
Because I’m Australian and voted at the end of last year 😛
But good video though. I liked the whole "You do know that, don’t you?" Should be used more against people who make wild accusations
eg: "You know that Mass Effect has none of that ‘Intereactive sex’ you’ve spent this whole report talking about, right? I mean, you HAVE done research into this, right?"
– Tim Kowalenko
I can’t help feeling….it’s just a horrible horrible feeling….but I bet there are a lot of very dumb people thinking "Hey, the celebs dont want me to vote! So I wont!!!"
Unfortunately there are some even more foolish people who vote Republican. >.>
BTW Eva Longoria = win.
I can’t vote anyway, my registration didn’t get through.
In either case, we know soemoen is going ot be sending like 80 emails a day to whomever becomes president
Wow… I found this funny.
Its about time celebrities sounded off about this. I mean, without their sage guidance, who knows what crazy decisions us commoners would make!

Hey Jack, got a question for you? Do you enoy selling "hot dogs and french fries" to real lawyers outside on the street?
You haven’t responded to my friend request. Don’t you love me anymore?

I’m not voting, my state is a repulican state, they vote repulican every election, no candidates EVER come here to do speeches, we aren’t a sway state, they KNOW they have our electorals, why should I vote when it won’t matter?
i don’t care, so i’m not voting either way its one more idiot running the country that has few worthy points to work with and isn’t more than a figure head either way, he can only urge one way or the other, after the governments in though the peoples say goes out the door on anything that was "promised" during the election term.
the government votes itself in anyways, we merely vote locally, beyond that its all electoral college voting government into government.
IF you don’t vote, make sure you do it VOCALLY!! Protest in the streets. Rally outside the polls. Make sure people know it’s wrong!
Seriously, to everyone: Research, then vote! Make sure you know all the options and what will happen for each. Tired of McCain and Obama? Remember: There are still other candidates out there. Write in a protest if you have to, but make sure your voice is heard!
I’m with you on that… not.
I want to see Indiana turn blue myself.
Don’t worry, I’m not gonna vote.
Apathy of the citizens is what keeps giving the government more bureaucratic power.
In Canada, we have 2 major parties (Liberal and Conservitives) and 2 smaller parties (NDP, Bloc Québécois) and then we have something called Independent which is the really really small parties like the Green Party. We give a fair mount of screen time to the smaller parties too, but it doesn’t really make much of a difference.
Green party was able to be part of the major debates, but they only ended up with zero seats (out of 308). Huge amount of people hate both Stephen Harper and Stephane Dion, yet they have the most seats.
Media doesn’t matter, people are just voting the party they were loyal to years before.
I protest the fact that these 2 idiots are the only options we have, since the media didn’t follow the other guys at all, even though at least one of them may actually be a better canidate than both of them… but when statistics are massively against you, you have one option, vote with the remainder.
We have 2 idiots to choose from, which idiot do you want. I just know I don’t want the idiot that picked a lady that thinks Earth is 6,000 years old, and I rather have the guy that hired over a dozen nobel prize winners to advise him on matters of climate change, medical stuff, and so on. (I wonder if he learned was most scientist know, over 95% of climate change is due to cycles that the sun goes through, and the remaining less than 5% isn’t all human either. [I go along with the BS though since I think solar panels and other green technology are a no crap items that cost less in the long run, but that is me.])
If the media would advertise the 3rd guy, or he would have raised enough funds, then this could be one hell of an election where a 3rd party shows they could take power soon, but it didn’t happen this year. I give it 12 years until a third party will either come close or be in the white house if the current parties don’t go through massive change over the next 12 years.
You can actually check your status online. http://www.voteforchange.com is a very simple site that will tell you if you’re registered, and if not, whether you still can (some states have same-day registration so you can register the same day that you vote). It was set up by the Obama campaign, so it’s branded that way, but anyone is free to use it.
I dont even know if I’m registered to vote…besides, I have a paper that isn’t going to write itself
Nice tin-foil hat, Zach. Does Mary Kay sell those in pink?
Run for the hills. Its a celebrity chain letter. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I turn 18 this February, so I have no worries.
I AM DOOMED TO HAUNT JACK THOMPSON’S DREAMS UNTIL HIS CRUSADE AGAINST VIDEO GAMES ENDS.
You’re goddamn right about that.
I don’t know much about voting, but if Christopher Walken says it needs more cowbell, then we need more cowbell.
Sir, I applaud you.
I am now going to write in Cristopher Walken tomorrow…. but who would he pick as VP?
"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety" – Benjamin Franklin
Whoa, whoa, whoa! Where is Walken? No Christopher Walken? You might as well not be saying anything at all then. Nothing has meaning unless Walken is involved
Vote Christoper Walken for President 2008.
Because god knows we need more cowbell in the Oval Office.
Ohhhh, so THIS is what the Cyber Sunday intro was about.
"No, baby. I have to…"
Insanity has its toll. Please have exact change.
hah but 4:45 is too long- I’d stopped at 1:20 finishing in f*ck it!
anyhow I can’t vote!
I’m getting the distinct feeling that Jack isn’t going to get the joke.
I’m torn, I do want to vote, but I long ago pledged to do anything Natalie Portman or Amy Adams told me to do.
