Actually a "voter strike" plays right into the hands of the incumbants. No vote, I would guess they would stay in office. At least until another
election was called.
Rockpuck. Choosing the candidates is up to us as the voting public, it's what being involved in the process is all about. Not just November 7th,
primary day too. Heck, if your so browned off about the choices, run yourself, if you're old enough. The choices are only limited if you allow them
to be. Yes, it'll take work...but if you don't try, nothing'll change. Party caucases will be happening starting next year. Go, get involved,
make your voices heard there, too. My local democratic party apparatchik hate me...because I ask questions like, "It's all very well and good to
hate Bush, but what alternative are we, as Democrats and loyal Americans, offering to counter what the Republicans are doing." I've yet to get any
sort of substansive answer. I expect that I'll be asked to leave soon. Not gonna keep me from being involved, though...I'll just be an independant
It's not hard to become informed, the internet is just brimming with information. Go to the rallies...ask questions...staying away is what the
rascals want. Express your anger at what is going on by voting the incumbants out...in two years if it just looks like more of the same...vote the
rascals out. Changing the climate of corruption in American politics is not going to be an overnight thing. It's going to take time, its going to
be frustrating, but anything worth doing in the realm of politics will never be an overnight success.
So, vote...agitate for change...check the results...vote again...keep agitating...check. For American politics to be as clean as possible; we, the
people need to be directly involved.
