Today is the day of the second of three elections this year, and there are primaries in non-presidential races afoot, as well as two major propositions on the ballot, 98 and 99. I talked about both here and my basic position is unchanged — absolute NO on 98, agreed on YES for 99. Meanwhile, there are a variety of local judicial elections as well — in OC it’s often down to the lesser of two or more evils, but that’s not always the case.
Point being — vote! Sure it’s not a big one, sure there’s not the ‘glamour’ of a presidential election — but to vote is to participate in what the American experiment continues to be. It must be done. Success to your sides and candidates, but if they fail, accept it and then go forward. It’s better than the alternatives.
