I performed my civic duty

.

It is a snowy morning. News-Radio says election officials expect a low turnout for this primary, perhaps as low as 22%. The reporter speculated that independents don’t like declaring a party in order to participate in primaries. Long ago, I learned to show up for all elections; the tax referendums are usually scheduled on dates when low turnouts are anticipated.

I “under voted” my ballot. Some candidates that I did not like were running unopposed and I did not want to add to their vote count.

Anyhow, I made my choices for the horses that I want to see the Republicans run in November. Between now and then there is plenty of time for me to find candidates, from all parties, best suited to serve my selfish interests. I’m in this game of life for my benefit alone.

Most incumbents or career politicians cannot count on my vote.

Over here next door in Minnesota, we have our caucuses today. It's a lot more time consuming than just punching a few chads out of a ballot. With luck, it might actually result in a better process. We can argue that either way.

I have to admit I was pretty lax about voting, until Clinton's first election. I have voted in every election I leagly could (only once unlike some) even if it was only for dog catcher.
If a person doesn't vote, what right do they have to complaine about the outcome.
