48. For a few elections there has been a push to get out the vote

 

then when they finally do come out to vote for the first time or after a long lapsed time they may or may NOT behave like regular voters.

Oops, that is the downside of Democracy, people voting how they want to.

This reminds me of being at a client's house just after the whole Freedom Fry brouhaha . She had turned on the Tour de France and was whinging that she shouldn't be watching it because the French had betrayed 'Merica. I said that was kind of the downside of promoting Democracy throughout the globe, governments start listening to what their voters want.


It was a beautiful thing to watch her face trying to process what the outcomes of all our wars for Democracy might actually achieve.


And yes, I know that we did NOT bring democracy to France but she DIDN'T.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Bernie Sanders
