You can hear the crickets chirping in the background.
Today in my one-party, Democrats-only home town is Election Day. I haven’t missed a vote since I first became eligible to vote in 1967… but I haven’t voted yet today.
It’s one of those rare instances when one may honestly ask, “Why bother?” There are no Republicans on the ballot, and the Dems have made a mess of this town. As the only party around, they’re able to do anything they please without having to account for it. They have a 100 percent chance of being re-elected. So my going to the polls would be a mere gesture. And I’m getting tired of those.
I can only hope and pray for a Trump landslide next year that reaches down even to my neighborhood–and sweeps the villains out of office.
