It's just that I participated in voting today. I spoke with my coworkers about the candidates/issues. Our ideological differences are much clearer, and it's disheartening. Who knew there were so many straight-ticket party-liners? Hell, I don't think one of them was even going to look at the issues before casting his vote.Who knew they cared so little about our civil liberties? One of them called Benjamin Franklin a fascist, seriously.
There was a quote from some anarchist, paraphrased, "If voting actually worked, they'd make it illegal." But for all its flaws, I think America can still trudge along the path to enlightenment and reason. If not then maybe there'll be no choice but to vote in another
