Toledo and Ohio May 4, 2010 Elections and the Storms Afterwards

Well, the Ohio primary election has been held and the results came in very quickly (for once, I might add). None of the results were a surprise to me. Neither was the extremely low voter turnout in Northwest Ohio as it was throughout the entire state. Voters are never fickle; most, but not all, never take the time to learn about the candidates or the issues; they just vote the way they have been told by some other person or group, or by falling prey to some slick, sleazy, snake oil political advertisements.

Informed voters do not always get what they deserve; ill-informed voters do get what they deserve; and, non voters do not deserve anything!

Oh, and since the election, we keep getting storms throughout Ohio, including severe storms with thunder and lightening, and tornado weather just yesterday. I wonder if that is an omen. Come to think of it: Where is Opal nowadays?

It is a sad commentary for sure that so few people came out to vote. I will, as long as I live, fail to understand the voter apathy in the US. After not being allowed to vote while I lived in Canada, one of the first things I did upon my return, was register to vote.

To put it simply,

sheeple and non-voters = 1

independent, thinking voters = 0

Tragically, that about sums it up...
