so sorry

So I neglected to get up an hour and half early this morning, resulting in my not getting to the polling station to vote. Between work and school, I didn’t get across town to do it. One person actually looked at me as if I were a leper when I mentioned that I hadn’t voted. One girl gave me a sly look (mental note about her). I doubt they would have given me that look if I told them I had intended on voting for a third party -I even had my voter registration card with me to make sure I went to the right location if I had time.

Sometimes, you just don’t have time. I only feel bad about not getting to vote against Chambliss. Acknowledging that one vote won’t affect the presidential election is just being rational. A senate election is a different question, though.

I might have ranted and raved about the bloated and fucked political system I think we have here in the US, but I’m convinced it will take more than one president-elect and a unified congress to change things in a positive way. I’m not interested in fucking revolution, though. I do think we need to dismantle a lot of things. Delegislate and deregulate. Yeah, I didn’t vote, but not because I don’t care. Because I wanted to fucking sleep.

Take that, society.
