Nothing is more annoying than losing a game we should have won. This is especially true when not enough players show up on your side. What is wrong with us?
The Virginia election isn't over yet but it is already clear that too few Democrats have voted. Even if we win, a big if, it will be a pyrrhic victory at best. The Tea Party has shown its strength and the Democrats have once again not bothered to show up. Then we spend the next few years complaining on why our Democratic Politicians don't follow liberal policies.
Gentlemen... and ladies... in these United States we get the government we deserve. Our politicians, democrat or republican, cater to the voters' will. Unfortunately, the only people who really vote are old people and the Tea Nutjobs! We therefore get laws that give free viagra while cutting Pell Grants, laws that cut food stamps while allowing guns in schools.
And somehow we blame our Democratic politicians for this?
Look in the mirror, fools, and blame the person you see! Nothing changes if you don't vote! Maybe we should give a free iPhone for every voter under 30? God knows the lines in front of Apple start at midnight! Why are we willing to sacrifice for junk but never bother when the important stuff happens? Will turnout exceed 50% if we include Beiber's new album?
Stop blaming Obama for not pushing Universal Healthcare. Stop calling our elected officials wimps! We don't have their backs and they have to deal with a weaker hand since we seldom show up!
Face the truth. We live in this nightmare because we can't be bothered to move away from it. Changing the world starts with changing yourself.
Now get to it.
