Sad But True

Yesterday, with absence of most, there were elections. Were the elections decided by the electorate? Not really, as so few turned out. When citizens complain about their plight and choose not to go to the polls, they are just whining to have something to discuss.

Virginia decides governor with 44% turnout.
Pennsylvania removes a justice with 16% turnout.
California turns down all initiatives — including some good ones — with around 45% turnout.
New Jersey decides governor with record low turnout, as low as 10%.

Why so many complain when so few vote? If you don’t vote, servitude is comfortable, unless you are out their planning a revolution — and you’re not.
