No One Else Counts

I’ll admit I don’t know a thing about Erik Zorn. I do know that his latest column is incorrect.

It’s not always about voting for the winner. Sometimes it’s about voting for change. Political voting reform and stopping or slowing the insane property taxes (a 23% increase in one year!) are a couple of issues that are important to me.

So go and vote if you have not already. Vote for who you think will make a difference either today or tomorrow. Your statement will be a vote for the future no matter who you choose.

    You’re right, Bill. For example, I voted for Rich Whitney. Why? Because I think he’s the best candidate? Maybe. Because I’m sick of Rod’s corruption and Judy is insane? Maybe. Or maybe, because I know Whitney might have a snowball’s chance in winning, but if he gets 5% the impact for the Green Party is *huge*…

    Whatever the reason: vote.

    Bill-

    Your two important reasons for voting are also important to me (voting reform and taxes). Just curious what sort of reform you have in mind.

    For example, I think id’s should be required to vote. They’re required for so many other less important activities. In my opinion, that’s a no brainer, but you’ve got race-pimps out there like Al Sharpton who say it’s a poll tax on blacks. To even suggest that blacks can’t get an id is a bit demeaning in my opinion, but hey, we’re talking about Al Sharpton, whose job is to make blacks feel victimized.

    Also, I think people on welfare should not be able to vote. Beggars can’t be choosers, or atleast they shouldn’t be able to. Until you can take care of yourself, let your providers make the big decisions.
