The last post generated some cynical posts about voting not making a difference.
My personal problem with cynicism is that if I become cynical then I know I will become negative and depressed and stop trying. I make this claim about NOBODY ELSE. This just happens to be how I am wired.
The devil wins if I stop trying. If I do everything I am supposed to, then at least Old Nick will have to rouse himself from the couch and his other distractions and cheat.
If I do nothing, then he wins by default. I am GIVING Old Nick the reins to power rather than having to work even the slightest, little bit.
Losing may be a forgone conclusion but I can at least make the bastids break into a sweat. And, God willing, working and following directions will be so foreign to most of them then we can still prevail.
And making the shark swim across the mud-flats will leave a mud-streak that leads back to where he was loafing. That can be useful information.
