It's not that we don't care, it's that we don't know. How are we supposed to know? How am I to know whether my ignorance of the subtleties of say, domestic economic issues, caused me to vote totally the wrong way if I wanted to vote in my own best interest? How do I know whether Bush is really playing a smart man off with a friendly country-boy act, totally turning me off but winning more votes than he loses? What the fuck is going on, Democracy? It makes me wonder why all elections in the history of ever haven't been acrimonious, litigious nail-biters. How did we get it to work when it felt like it was working? I feel like I have no sense of history, having never paid much attention to the process before.
I realize in my 5am haze (which is apparently a smidgen sharper than my 3am haze, since I'm only making wild assertions about the world and not asking out girls) that maybe I should say "I" rather than "We" above.
