I did not vote

I did not vote yesterday. So you can blame me for all the world's problems that will come as a result.

At best, I really didn't care. What little I knew of this mid-term election came from idiot political commercials which really just made me hate the process all the more (though they were good for a few laughs). So whether it was complacency, fatalism, or an act of rebellion/protest... it doesn't matter. It is what it is.

I have nothing against those who do vote, nor those who don't. And I'm not saying I will never vote again. I might. But I might not too. I have no idea. I just didn't see the point yesterday; or today.

I really got into it for awhile with the Obama presidential races... but then people called me everything from unpatriotic to an atheist. For liking the President of our country!!! What?!? How... I... I just don't understand people. And I don't understand how everyone can know that big business and money own the media and Washington and all the people who have control, but no one seems to care. And I don't understand how politicians can behave like spoiled schoolchildren, and they still get our votes.

I'm sure almost everyone knows that definition people like to use for insanity: "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." Yeah... so... we vote for basically the same people, in the same system, and somehow we think things are going to be different???

Or do we just not know what else to do? I confess... I don't. I think the democrats are fools and the republicans are downright scary, but I don't know of anyone any better. My fear now is that, after this election, the republicans are going to think everyone thinks they're right!!! And maybe they really do!!! And maybe they are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ugh.

So... I didn't vote. I will place my trust elsewhere, and take what comes. You can do what you like.
