Don’t blame me . . .

. . . I didn’t vote

If no-one voted, who would be in power then? Every citizen has a responsibility to support democracy.

Hi Maffi,

I'm surprised that with your strong views about most things you couldn't be bothered to cast a vote.

It's a cop out to say 'don't blame me - I didn't vote'. Not voting means you should accept the result and take your share of responsibility for it - after all you did nothing to stop it.

And don't tell me they are all the same, I think what is happening now clearly shows they are not all the same.

You are making the assumption that I didnt try to vote. Bad move.

Martin said...

Well that didn't occur to me - what stopped you?

Maffi said...

I bet it didnt occur to anyone.

If you unhappy with the statu quo it is your responsibility to change it! I have voting rights on 2 continents bcause I want some say in what goes on, and I have NEVER missed an election where I have been eligible to vote. I pay taxes, I want to think (dissillusionment all round) that my vote may affect where it is spent. To many polls around here are decided by less than 50% of eligible voters, and you did not oush hard enough to cast one? Shame, shame on you to sit there and say "do not blame me, I did not vote." This is a cop out, tell it to the residents of Zimbabwe, of Burma, of Cuba, of half the supposed democracies in the world!
