    but it's not a dealbreaker for me. Politics corrupts people, and attracts corrupt people, but it is necessary in the system we have. Not voting won't change the system, in my view, it will just make things worse.

    •  I don't know about that... (0+ / 0-)

      For the second time in a year, I am faced with an election I am less-than excited to be voting in.

      Unfortunately, telling voters "not voting won't make it better," doesn't resonate like it used to. Believe me - I used to say the same thing.

      Now, I'm faced with the second election in a year's time that is more about maintaining the relevance of the old guard of the parties (no matter which fresh face is in front, it's the same old players are in the back), than it is about the very complex community of voters in San Diego.
