If you\’re ignorant of the issues,

Pat McSweeney, writing in the Daily Press, says don’t vote.
I agree with him wholeheartedly.
Democracy is not a panacea. In fact a purely democratic society is undesirable. I also support a) indirect democracy (i.e. ending the direct election of the Senate), and b) extra votes awarded to those who pay higher tax rates. If you are more responsible for the funding, you should have more responsibility in the decision-making process than someone who contributes nothing.
