In Response to RE: Memoir Prompt November 2012: The act of voting by PattyDiane
I'm with you Patty because there is no doubt who will win Louisiana as usual. It is frustrating because I feel as if my vote doesn't even count thanks to the Electoral College system. When are we going to get out of the dark ages and have a really fair election system? - MAJORITY rules in everything but the Presidential race. I vote because it's my duty as a citizen and I'm thankful I have the right.
At least my vote does count in the other elections - we have a Democratic senator and many Democrats hold office throughout the state, so we're alive and well lol - just in the minority. Oh well.
I lost a friend just this past year over politics. She tried to convince me to change - she really detests President Obama. I wanted to agree to disagree and not get into a big argument. She has stopped speaking to me. I wasn't even arguing with her about it - just trying to get her to stop forcing her opinion on me. All my other friends who have differing political opinions respect my right to mine and vice versa so we remain friends. Maybe she wasn't my friend to begin with?
