In honor of the election that's taking place all across this great land of the United States I thought I would use Churchill's famous quote:
"Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time."
Instead I decided to use a quote from a Victorian PM Benjamin Disraeli (actually Queen Victoria's favorite, I'm partial to Bobby Peal cuz he was the one who basically invented police officers and I even like Bill Gladstone better than old Ben, but who's to argue with the Emperess of India and Queen of the United Kingdoms).
Anyways, Benjamin Disraeli said:
"In a progressive country change is constant;…change…is inevitable."
I usually vote a system rather than for individuals.
Maybe it's irresponsible of me not to thouroughly research all of the candidates, but that's the risk we take living in a democratic society: the ignorant and stupid get a say.
Anyway, my system this time was Vote Green, Greek and vote out all incumbents. I try not to vote for anybody that's unapposed either.
Why green you ask. Our gubernatorial race has a democrat I have no respect for, a republican that has shady connections to an administration that has folks that are actually doing time for their parts. I don't want any part of that. So I went green. It ain't easy, but I did it.
