V-O-T-E Go Democracy!

Voting is light cheering at a football game, you don't do it to effect the outcome. Alone, your loudest scream will never encourage your team or disrupt the other. Instead you cheer so everyone near you knows who you support.


  1. Looks like we've been reading the same articles:

    "This casts strong doubts on the fallback position of the dedicated voter: that even if it isn't decisive, voting is expressive, a way to feel part of the larger community, to add one small voice to a loud chorus of cheering. But remember: with politicians, you don't even really know what you are cheering for."

  2. Ha ha, thanks for the link Justin. But in my defense, I've never seen that article before.


You are the reason why I do not write privately. I would love to hear your thoughts, whether you agree or not.
