    Every lawful citizen should recognize that failure to vote is failing to meet ones civic duty. Just a thought ….. In Australia failure to vote in a general election will cost you a $70 fine

    “seems we ought to at least TRY!”

    ESCAMBIA County Florida:
    97,760 Republican
    71,459 Democratitic
    4,197 Minor Party
    47,712 No party affiliation
    221,128 Total Registered Voters

    76.5% Of the registered voters who could vote were Republicans or Democrats,
    So that means 38% of those who could vote did vote.

    (And at least one of us was too sick to leave the house that day, missing a vote for the first time since 1972.)

    David for better people, including candidates

    So much for the projected massive voter turnout this time we keep being told is going to happen in the primaries. Maybe it still might in the general elections in November.

    Maybe most figure it does not matter what the people want, and that whoever is really running things will do anything it takes for THEIR will to be done. Or, maybe they cannot spare the extra gasoline to get there. But, seems we ought to at least TRY!
