I Voted!


I voted because:

  • I want to feel part of the governance of a nation, part of the System you could even say.
  • I don't want to have to refer to "the System" pretentiously, contemptuously, or apathetically. I don't want it to be a dirty word.
  • I'm saying I'm willing to take responsibility for my nation. 

Which is why when I cast my (secret) ballot, my choice was for the candidate best placed to ensure ward-level development. 

I think that's fair, but that's a view that is open to change. 

Does larger ideology and party principles take or should take precedence over ward-level issues? 

Me and my violently indigo pointer are going to give that some thought for when the next election cycle starts.
