“Yet the largest party in America isn’t the Republicans or the Democrats; it’s the party of non-voters.”
Proving that democracy is a joke.
I ran into someone this morning who said he wasn’t voting in the midterms because he was “disgusted” with politics. I told him if he doesn’t vote he forfeits his right to complain. Election Day is a week from tomorrow, and in many places you can vote before then. Voting isn’t just a right. It’s a privilege. Yet the largest party in America isn’t the Republicans or the Democrats; it’s the party of non-voters.
The biggest question on the midterm ballot isn’t whom you send to Washington or the state house. It’s who you are and what you stand for. The biggest problem for our democracy isn’t regressive Republicans or spendthrift Democrats; it’s apathetic citizens.
