We don't get fooled again?  

It's election day.
You SHOULD vote, just to make sure the government officials know you're still alive.
Trouble is, it's an off-year.

Here in Nigara County, New York, I looked at the ballot and wondered if I'd moved to the USSR and not noticed it.

Basically, for most of the offices, there was only one candidate...on some, I had the same person running both as Republican and Democratic, not just Conservative, Green, Coalition or whatever....seven seperate blocks on the ballot, but the same name in every block....On the State Supreme Court, there were 15 blocks, we could vote for any three, but there were only four individuals on those 15 blocks.

I guess nobody's interested....

All the talk is about the race to be Chief Target at 1600 PA Avenue - but that vote is next year.
My time in DC has convinced me that the Prez has a lot less to do with my life than the hoarde of nearly faceless apparatchiks behind him (or her).

To me, the Family Court Judges have a lot to do with how my students live, and the County Clerk - licenses and IDs for illegal aliens? - is a lot more immediate to my life than the Chief Bozo (or Bozo-ette)
