i didnt vote!

Published May 31, 2012 by not so secret life of sarah

Don’t ask me if I voted … I didn’t and I never will vote. “Someone died so you could have a vote” … Yeah but someone from the other side killed him so we didn’t. I’m on his side, he showed more conviction by murdering someone who spoke out against him. ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to the Fiscal Treaty won’t affect me in any way. I want to vote ‘Maybe’ and if that sounds stupid then I want to vote ‘Yes’ to Article 1,2,3,4,5,8,9,12,15 and ‘No’ to the rest. Its always said to me “If you don’t vote then someone else makes up your mind for you” … yeah thats what happens in the Oireachtas. These people make up my mind on a daily basis without consulting me. Its selective democracy employed in this country and the people don’t care. Enda’s televised address to the nation, ahead of the budget was the second most watched programme last year with the first being the Toy Show. As nation we would much rather watch Ryan Tubridy try to stop a down syndrome kid eat a Transformer while an 8 year old girl from Ballymun sings a Justin Bieber song dressed as a stripper who fell into a pot of glitter then find out how much we are adversely affected financially for the following year because some unqualified banker gave a window cleaner a loan to buy a Porsche. It just goes to show we are more interested in how we spend our money than how much of it we’re going to have. And whilst that is the case this country is going to do as well as a John Cena movie at the box office.
