I have already shown my photo ID and voted. Are you going to participate in our democratic process?


The time for complaining about seated Democrats and Republicans is nearly over. The time to take the lazy elephants and stubborn mules to the slaughter house is here. If you can't stand to see your expensive pet elephant or mule thrown out, don't expect 2015 and 2016 to be anything but a re-run of what they've wasted, namely another $8 trillion since 2008, while your neighbor is on welfare because he can't find a decent job, your military is under-funded because nobody accepted the plan to avoid the sequester, and the borders still leak like a sieve.

    I could understand, if there were only two candidates up for your vote and you could be sure your spouse's vote would cancel out your vote, and so you both agree not to vote.But there are few elections in which only two candidates are being voted on.

    Chances are your decision will make you part of "the Silent Majority" of Americans this year, making it almost certain that most Americans will get what they didn't want. Not voting is your right, part of free agency.

    I was tempted to write "When in doubt, vote them out!" But here locally the incumbent is head and shoulders more capable (Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Republican) than his opponent. So such an idea is not a panacea. If both choices are poor, vote the best
