Okay, so I voted...

Even though I still believe it's, in the long run, a waste of time.

Once, one of my relatives gave me that bull about "if you don't vote, you can't complain." I let her have it, thus:

If I didn't vote, I have more right to complain than you do. Because if I didn't vote, it was because I could not in good conscience support any candidates even with my one insignificant vote. I was a disenfranchised voter before I could even get to the ballot, so you'd better believe I have a right to complain.

This time I mostly voted so that if Cuellar manages to lose, I can say "nyah nyah nyah" with a clean conscience. I will be surprised if he loses, though.


  1. What about our lovely District Attorney race?

    I'm seeing VOTE! all over the place, and really...I want the people who haven't bothered to pay more attention than to look at the signs across the street while they're waiting in the McDonald's drive-thru to not vote.

    It would also be nice if people realized that they can leave some races blank, if they think all available candidates suck.

  2. Which is exactly what I did in more than one case.
