It turns out most people don’t follow politics. Like ostriches with their heads in the sand, they don’t seem to know up from down, as long as it doesn’t affect their lives directly (and 107% increases in gas prices apparently doesn’t affect them). I find this to be selfish, ignorant and irresponsible. What these people vote on does affect my life directly.
I understand not following politics, after all, we all get tired of the lies and the empty promises. It is the height of ignorance however to vote for someone when you’ve never even looked at what that candidate has voted for or against. There should be a test to earn the right to vote. If you’re ignorant, don’t vote!
Better yet, as the Tea party continues to clean up the Republican party, just vote Republican.
