It Must Be My Fault
For advising you all not to vote.
Figures. Seems after every election there has to be at least one commentary chastising us for the low voter turnout- the turnout in Humboldt on Tuesday being around 53% (doesn't sound all that low to me).
So what? Why should people who pay scant attention to what's going on in the world around them vote?
Why should I want other people vote, unless their views are similar to mine? This seems to be a shallow theme, especially among the Left, that if everyone would just turn out to vote, the people will have spoken and our country's ills will be on the mend.
Democracy: Two wolves and a sheep deciding what's for lunch.
The Times- Standard refers to Iraq and how some people think the Iraq War was worth it because Iraqis can vote now. So what? Is Iraq a better place now that people can vote? I can't say because I'm not there, but from what I've seen, probably not.
