The few have spoken again….

You probably know that He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named won another Republican primary caucus this week.

The folks who voted for HWSNBN were exercising their right in our democracy, befuddled as it may be. That’s all I can say without getting into fear and trembling.

The gross shame of all this is made so much worse by all the folks who didn’t vote.

There are almost 2.2 million men and women of voting age in Nevada.

About 34,500 of them voted for HWSNBN—that’s about 1.6 per cent. So, more than 98 per cent of Nevadans didn’t vote for him.

Only about 15 per cent of registered Republicans turned out to vote for anyone.

Non-participation is killing our democracy.

If you don’t vote in your state’s primary, you’re going to have to live with the candidate picked by a few other folks. How much do you trust ‘em?
