Do you hire back the employee who has already lied to you and stole your money? or
And that's my problem with that perspective. Just because the guy lied to you and stole from you means you should just automatically hire the next
random guy who walks into your place of business? Someone you know nothing about?
I'm not defending incumbents. Hardly. I'm saying that unless you are going to vote for someone specific, who has specific, realistic informed
positions that you agree with, then merely voting someone 'out' is not going to do anything.
Ballots dont have a 'none of the above' option. although i think they should.
Again, it takes much more knowledge and effort to be FOR something, than to be against something.
I agree with the guy at the top of the previous page who said voting at the federal level is a joke. we still have the opportunity to effect change at
the state and local level, but the federal game is all smoke and mirrors.
