Well...are you?
I know it's easy enough to get cynical about politics, but I wish people really understood what a gift it is to live in a country that allows them the freedom to elect their leader. Even if you think none of the candidates are ideal choices, at least you get a choice, and at least none of them are tyrannical dictators. Given all the political unrest around the world in the last few months, I am somewhat hopeful that people will take the gift of voting a little more seriously, but the cynic in me doubts we will see a better voter turnout than last time. Should we force people to vote, or is that less democratic? :)
