I just got back from voting and almost did not go. You can understand the low turnout because of the incessant and harassing phone calls everyone gets.
Politicians have a way of not telling the truth while not really lying. For instance, when a politician says he did not vote for a pay raise for himself, he is literally telling the truth, but most of us know that Congress got around that by passing a law that automatically gives them raises as long as they do not bring it up in session.
Also notice that Congress passed this wonderful notion known as the “do not call” list. However, they exempted themselves – just like they have exempted themselves from many of the laws they pass affecting us normal citizens.
It’s no wonder there were very few people voting Tuesday!
