The Unease of Elections

Why I’m not likely to vote on the national level

When I cast my ballot for the first time, shortly after turning 18, elections seemed exciting. It was almost like a rite of passage; I was finally a full member of society. A few months later, the guy of my choice turned out to be a crook like any other, and I felt betrayed. He kept none of his advertised promises and just continued to rip the position for his own benefits.

“I never want to feel cheated like this again,” I thought. “I don’t need this!”
