  • Voting percentages...

    Some fuckwit is giving politicians a dangerous excuse for low voting percentage. My comment is waiting to be moderated, so here...

    We vote to put the best head in state. We don't need to be experts; we do stupid shit all the time, and that's ok. For instance, we don't trust ALL dentists, just because they've been to school for dentistry. We generally choose reputation; but sometimes we just choose gender, because we'd prefer a woman's hands in our yap over a man's; it's not a correct method of dealing with one of the most sensitive parts of our anatomy, but as I said, we do stupid shit.

    Giving politicians an out such as this, is a dangerous idea. If only 30% of the population votes, than it's a sign to the politicos that they are failing to do their job!

    "Oh geez only 30% of the voting body bothered to vote, perhaps we should do something, ummm teach them basic politics and party-lines?"

    "Naw, don't worry about it, that 30% just represents the intelligent part of the voting body. Business as usual chap."
