i understand that any means to certain necessary ends will be justified, and that they are very necessary ends, but...

"register to vote for a chance to meet pusha t"

saddens me. esp. in conjunction with

"paid for by hillary clinton"

What aspect saddens you?

a) that we should have to encourage citizens of any age to vote by incentives other than, hey, it's the government that rules over hundreds of aspects of your lives from reproductive freedom to the economic environment that provides occupational opportunities

2) that tying any form of compensation, however minimal and lotteryesque, to the act of voting (as a byproduct of registration) should be legal, and whether legal or not, practiced by the party i plan to support (why not just sell our votes to the highest bidder?)

iii) that hillary clinton should associate herself with pusha t (she's constantly, rightfully, criticizing trump for the way trump treats/describes women, but then associates herself with a gangster rapper who degrades women extensively with the standard use of bitch, and additionally glamourizes the illegal drug trade and illegal drug usage); it's hypocritical even if the negative impact on undecided voters is minimal, which it may or may not be

D. that the campaign actually believes that anyone disinterested enough to not already be registered will treat the process as anything other than the contest it is being promoted as and actually follow up by voting (in any significant numbers)
