I voted this morning. Did you?
If you’ve decided not to vote, consider the following bits of wisdom from various sources:
- “It’s really something; every two years we get to overthrow a government.” — Aaron Sorkin.
- “Decisions are made by those who show up.” — Woody Allen.
- “One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.” — Plato
And if Plato’s wisdom doesn’t convince you to head to your local polling place today, then you don’t get to complain about how your government fails you.
Because you failed to live up to your end of the bargain.
