If only we had a system where politicians had to follow through on promises.

    Gosh folks, I hate to sound old-fashioned here, but how difficult is it to saunter down to the polling station and pencil an X in a box? I mean really? Making toast requires more effort.

    Voter apathy is a problem, I can attest. And a bizarre problem, too. Most people take the time to return their pop cans for a modest reward. Why would a sane person choose not to vote when the effort required is less and the impact of doing so significantly greater?

    Here is something to consider: remember when enumerators used to come to your door? I do believe that this had some impact on voter turnout.
