It’s reassuring to know that democracy is also a beautiful thing.
You know this because the:
- press (mainstream, aka newstainment, media)
- political class
- career politicians
- special interest groups
- cast of a TV show
- cast of a theatre show
- professional protesters
- non-registered citizens
- non-voting citizens
don’t control, much to their astonishment, an election result.
(Judging from the comatose or the enraged state of some of the above as the US election results came in, they may want to make sure there’s a defibrillator nearby the next time around. http://www.cleveland.com/tv-blog/index.ssf/2016/11/election_night_performance_shows_networks_need_to_rethink_political_coverage.html)
When you, citizen voter, exercise your privileged and precious right to vote, that decides the outcome.
