#085 - TO VOTE OR NOT TO VOTE
As I ranted two weeks back, I (and in my opinion, the entire country) have been screwed here. I don't have any of the typical "voter apathy" symptoms, as I see them.
As in: There is not a good one. It's worse than choosing the lesser of two evils. I understand that - when the evil does not have a conscious mind. But this isn't choosing the lesser of two evils - it is telling the lesser of two evils that you support what they are doing. It's giving official mandate to their evil. And I cannot stomach that.
I had two friends run in the last municipal election. They lost - but they tried. It's a little late for this election, but perhaps I should be a candidate. Perhaps I should run for election.
I don't think I would win, especially as a completely unknown independent. I have no experience in official politics. Although I believe I have some good ideas, I doubt I could solve the country's problems. But I could solve MY problem.
I would have someone to vote for...
