I don’t plan to vote tomorrow. I usually vote. It literally doesn’t matter if I vote in Kansas, because it’s always a landslide here.
Regardless, I should explain.
The Republicans have been becoming more and more like Democrats every year since I started paying attention. The difference between them is so negligible at this point that it’s completely moot. Even John McCain was pro-choice. Both parties spend money like they’re printing it in the basement (which they are) and spend it on stuff I don’t like.
Both parties are filled with corrupt, power-hungry morons. The fact is, you just don’t go into politics unless you’re a no-good crook. There may be one candidate in a thousand that has some limited scruples, but it’s completely impossible to tell which ones are which, because all of them lie, throw mud, and posture 24/7.
The Republicans were in power and tons of bad stuff was legislated. The Democrats are now in power, and the same bad crap is happening. I haven’t really detected much of a difference. Both groups were spending money they didn’t have, pissing on business, and kowtowing to lobbies. Both parties say one thing and do another.
They’re all scum, and the only way I’d vote in this election is if they add “None of the Above” to the ballot. That’ll never happen because NOTA would win every race.
So if you feel the need, go vote tomorrow. Your vote will only influence one thing – what the media wrings their hands about for the next 2 years. The end result will be the same, namely graft, corruption, deficit spending, bending to relativism, moronic wars (or “police actions” if you insist), bribery, and countless reams of legislation that none of the actual citizens of America want.
The Republicans will probably gain seats in both houses tomorrow. I’m just telling you right now it won’t make any difference in what our government does over the course of the next two years. They will get paid, and you will lose your job.
Voter apathy? That doesn’t even begin to describe it.
