I Hate Politics

Friday 5 Nov 2004

By the time this one is posted, the U.S. elections will be over (and maybe even officially decided, as opposed to being dragged out for months after the election.) I hate politics and I hate this country's election process. I also hate all the bullheaded, mindless backing of one political party or the other, where people claim that they assess the issues and candidates before deciding - but they're actually voting for a party, and always have.

It's okay to believe in something - the same something - over the entire course of your life, and vote for it every time. Just don't claim that you re-assess the issues and candidates every four years, because it's not true.
