I have seen the above statement a lot yesterday.
You know what… Fuck that.
I get it. The candidate you didn't want, won. Can you really get to bitch about them if you didn't vote?
The answer is yes you can.
Because most people are pretty apathetic about who is running. It's why turnout is so low. Because the differences between the two party system (that makes the rules to keep out any true competition) are truly few and far between.
I rarely vote.
When I do, it is typically for 3rd parties. They don't tend to win.
So Yesterday I once again did not vote. I found the majority of the candidates all pretty similar versions of shitty. In some races people were running unopposed.
So I will bitch. Not about the people who won. But about the whole fucked system.
