Elections: Whoo-hoo!

I love election day! California’s proposition makes me feel like I’m really participating in democracy, though it’s not quite as hopeful when you realize all the stupid people participate too. Regardless, my usual cynicism about politics seems to take a back seat to the actual process on election day. Too bad they don’t give out the “I voted!” stickers to people who vote absentee.

  1. I’m with you! It’s really kind of beautiful to see the process in action. In so many countries, elections are times of violence and fear, but in the US it’s all so calm and business-like. I know there’s plenty wrong with the system, but there’s plenty right with it, too.
