The US elections are getting very close but it is a known fact that there would still be undecided voters who cannot make up their mind. It is not like they have 10 choices to pick from, they only have 2 unlike India where we have diverse number of political parties (who form coalition and end up becoming just 2 to pick from, but that is another story). I am not sure what makes them difficult to pick:
1. Not enough choices?
2. Fear of screwing up by electing the wrong person?
3. A One time chance to show who has the real power?
4. No holiday on election day?
Whatever the reason may be, the fact is one shouldn’t escape from the voting responsibility. So I went ahead and asked the candidates themselves and couple of related others, to provide some advice for the undecided voters and this is what they said:
So there it is, Obama and McCain projected their key campaign words.
I went on to conduct an imaginary poll to see which of the above boxes had the most effect on the undecided voters. I was hoping that the box 3 would have the most effect but surprisingly box 4 won by a huge margin. I guess people badly need new underwear (In the movie Slacker Uprising, Michael Moore lures some of the college students to vote by giving them free packs of underwear, during one of the college campus visit). Upon further investigation I found that half of those voters were from India, where politicians are known to give freebies in exchange for votes. Relax guys, you will get your chance on freebies like Free Color TV and Free bag of Rice next year.
Who do you think will be the next U.S. President?
None of the above mentioned should be considered seriously, but your Vote has to be! Good Luck America!
