I Vote For McIntire!

Voting Booth

What if they gave an election and nobody came?

That's what happened in McIntire, Iowa the other day (well, really back in August but "the other day" sounds more folksy). It was a special election, too! They were asking the 70 registered voters of McIntire if it was ok for the Mayor and city council to stay in office twice as long as they have been.

"Don't really care," was the resounding answer from the citizenry, including, if you think about it, the other 40 who weren't registered. Even the various city officials apparently thought it wasn't worth the bother.

A Few Paragraphs would humbly like to suggest that the rest of the country follow the bold democratic example of McIntire and just ignore the next few elections -- the big ones, anyway. Think how much better off we'd be if nobody at all voted last November. For anybody.

And don't worry, I'm pretty sure that under the law whoever was in office has to leave when their term is up, whether there's a replacement or not. The bureaucracy will keep things running.

We'll be fine.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would
never understand. It seems too complex and very
broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I'll
try to get the hang of it!

I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well
as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme
