Even people who don't like the candidates should know that there is more to voting than the president.
State and local initiatives.
There were a page and a half of selections on my local ballot this year.
Lots of new faces.
Lots of libertarian candidates too.
It's not just the president that you are voting for.
Its also the people who will be participating in local, then state, then federal elections.
A libertarian candidate that made local office this year may be the Senator you vote on three or four elections from now.
The ballot initiative you vote on right now could mean the difference in a getting new school where it is badly needed or avoiding a big, wasteful,
pork belly pet project for a politician you wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.
It's not just about the puppet behind the podium. It's about the ongoing evolution of government over time.
Didn't anybody hear about this in third grade or do they not teach that any more?
I think we should bring back those old "Schoolhouse Rock" cartoons to re-educate the American people on the basics.
I guess it would probably be labeled as too fundamentalist to actually KNOW how government is intended to work.
