I’m not sure which possibility disturbs me more: that our votes are actually meaningless and “democracy” is a farce, or that it actually works and all of us blithering morons really do on some level decide which direction this country heads in.
Anyway, get out there and vote today! (As long as you’re voting the way I would; otherwise, please don’t.)
Haha (= sad laugh). My favourite professor once said that democracy indeed is the rule of the majority, but that the majority might as well be dumb*sses, if you pardon me the expression.
