Silly things liberals say. I & II

As is the case often, a liberal friend will be inexplicably for one ridiculous thing, while being against a related reasonable thing.

So, in a short amount of time, you'll often hear these nuggets of "wisdom" come from the mouth of  an American liberal:
1- "Everybody should vote!" or "It's your duty to vote!"
And, then, to those that actually follow politics and complain, not about superficial  perceptions, but affects of real policy:
2- "If you think you know so much, maybe you should run for office".

...ok...so, to summarize: "Don't really worry about understanding policy cause/effect, but vote anyway".

Wouldn't it be more wise to NOT vote if you not informed?  Of course everyone has the right to vote.   But, what good is it to have uninformed people randomly pulling levers??!

And, isn't the real responsibility to understand issues and consider the result of stated "solutions"?   What? I have the duty to vote, but not to research and share knowledge?

I love to see that you're getting back to blogging… but it sure it sad to see the same ol' complaints going round in circles. Keep up the good work.

"sad"? Pretentious much? Stamps, guns, music, baseball cards, political policy cause/effect...we all have hobbies.
