A Non-Voter (And Proud of It)

As each election approaches, I am less inclined to vote, not in protest, but just a general feeling that a government should be chosen by those who have to live under it.  The older I get, the less that is me. I do not agree with many of the recent choices, but if that is what the younger voters want, good luck. Maybe their choices will turn out to be better than mine, which were never that great.

Columnist Peggy Noonan commented on former President Obama’s suggestion that voting be mandatory. She countered with, “It would mean a lot of people who aren’t interested in public policy and chose not to follow it would suddenly be deciding it.”

And people like me, who have no skin in the game.

My reasons for writing this blog are spelled out in the posting of 10/1/2012, Montaigne's Essays. They are probably not what you think.
