    ...a great solution is to vote for the most outrageous, shallow-minded, flippant, inexperienced, intolerant, racist, gay-bashing candidates to solve our problems.

    Voting is a "joy buzzer" device- like a switch or button attached to a wall but otherwise not connected to anything- designed to fool the voter into believing that he or she is making a difference.

    I am voting in our municipal election next week. Yes, I vote. Last time I voted against the current mayor, because I didn't like him...he won, but it was much closer than the first time he won. He isn't running this time, he knows damn well he won't win. It isn't always about winning, sometimes it just sends a message that you care and you're not giving your votes to that person.

    Voting isn't just a joy buzzer, unless your government is pretend...if nobody votes, the government will just think the population is too lazy to care what they do.

    It's a vote and it sends a message better than sitting on your ass does.
