Politics and Society

Under the Radar

No one votes in mid-term elections. If you haven’t figured that out already, learn it. It’s not a good thing, and is certainly a problem, but that’s where we are right now.

Lately, though, I’ve noticed a trend. Sneaky political groups are getting their pet projects and policies passed, (sort of) under the radar. In fact, if you want something to be passed with little to no discussion or protest, get it on the mid-term ballot.

Believe me, I fully recognize the problem. So before any of you sociopaths write in with your maniacal solutions, save it. I get it. I’m not looking for an answer here. I’m just pointing out an issue.

At the end of the day, everyone who is legally eligible to vote is physically able to get their vote in, regardless of whether or not they can visit the polls. But so long as people are lazy and disaffected mofos, this cycle will continue.
