in reply to The most important issue for me in elections is:
I was talking with a friend recently, discussing our disgust at the level of current politics. She said that she was going do what the whackos do.
Extremist wackos, like the ones who bomb abortion clinics, have a simple method of pushing their issue.
- They vote in every election
- They vote based on one issue
- They work with like minded whackos to recruit others
So, maybe we should each pick one issue that we (individually) care about and persue it madly. I may try it and see if I'm any happier. What do you think?
