Yesterday we voted. Some people didnt - ignorance and apathy. If you're not going to vote, you might as well give up your liberties as someone someday will take them without you consent (dictatorship).
Ignorance, Apathy and Selfishness
I've always wondered about the US electortial college. I think its a great idea. What I dont like is the fact that everyone always votes along party lines. If someone doesnt vote the party line, they get booted out of government. You would hope that the individuals that make up a government have morals and apply them appropriately.
