dear diary: vote or no vote, will it matter?

wavy ran on the nobody ticket beginning in 1980. always loved that.
"i want nobody on my side!!"

as for the big question you pose, my broken-hearted, eyes wide-open answer
is no, it will not. it's all bought and paid for. never thought i'd feel that way, and terribly sad that i do.

I'm not sure voting makes a difference but I do it anyway. I was getting on my son to get registered and he gave me all the reasons why he doesn't and all I could say was Hm. I felt much the same way. The way it works is just rotten.

Hey, I hope you survived the storms okay? I heard it was very bad out that way. We just got a little wind and hard rain. Peace today. ~ RS ~

Bonjour Coffee,

Strange question. In many other countries people are ready to die for their right to vote.

I think it matters more in local and state elections.

The Presidential election is a rigged game, and the choices are shit anyway.

annie: Yes, sad and true! ; (

ruby: Thanks, a tornado occurred N of us. Despite no one willing to do the job for "we the people" all we can do is at least vote for who we think is the lesser of 2 evils, but that's still not right! ; (

mary: see above

georg: Not since the 60s have people voted in large numbers. A sad statement on america and who we have to accept in the limited 2 party system we have. Really not much freedom to choose like that, is there????

fairlane: Checkmate! ; (
