“If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice” - Rush<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” />

According to this article yesterday’s turnout was the highest in 3 decades, with just under 60% of eligible voters actually giving any thought regarding what happens to them.

It boggles my mind that over 40% of Americans chose to allow the rest of us decide their fate.

Look around you. Of every five people you see, two of them abandoned their civic and patriotic duty yesterday. Effectively they surrendered their rights as American citizens and gave them to the rest of us.

What are you people? Apathetic? Disillusioned? Dim?

To make matters worse, we already have people claiming that Bush had a “decisive” victory. Nothing is decisive when nearly half your population has decided to be voiceless chattel…

What this really means is that the results are more along this line:

Bush 30%
Kerry 28%
Nader or other 1%
Voiceless chattel 41%

So Bush’s “decisive” victory is due to less than 1/3 of the eligible voter support.
