I didn't vote.

Tuesday, the day that all the crap stops clogging up my mailbox?

The last political mailer I actually looked at was where a Steve competing against another Steve for council, and I'd met one and still couldn't tell them apart, sent a multi-pager with the brilliant concept that the current council had their cell phones paid for and he paid for his own cell phone.

How stupid do they think we is?

I live in a "Democratic" city where the level of corruption is so complete, it's not even worth describing here for entertainment value.

For decades, I voted every opportunity on principle just because I was so pissed that Carter conceded to Reagan as early as he did. And because our people really have fought and died for our right to cast a ballot.

This town has a financially-funded fool figurehead at City Hall and there were no viable challengers. There weren't other drastic issues current. I'm distracted by my own need to survive - which has nothing to do with the concerns of the crony criminals running the region - to feel the need to show up on principle, yet again.

I've voted when it doesn't matter, when it doesn't count, when no one cares but me, when my right to vote is the only motivator.

This time I didn't.
