I’m tired of reading comments from bloggers who believe if voters don’t agree with them, it means they are low information, ignorant people.
If you want people to agree with you, if you are tired of the partisan bickering and really want government to work for all - you have to respect people.
You cannot support democracy and badmouth voters. You cannot have democracy without them.
If you can only explain your candidate’s losses by claiming voters are not smart enough to understand the issues, where the candidates stand, or that they can be fooled, bought off, they are lazy or corrupted - then you suck as a political observer. Candidates lose because they didn’t convince enough citizens to support them on an election day.
If you don’t believe in voters and election day, then you should move to a place where other people like you don’t believe in voters and election day - there are plenty of hell on Earths that will welcome your opinion with open arms and agree with you.
We’re getting more and more of this sort of crud in comments as the election nears (on both sides, actually) and it’s really been bothering me. VMan captured my feelings exactly.
I would only add that too often this loaded “low information voters” phrase is used as racial code - against poor blacks or, to a lesser extent, poor whites. Enough, already.
Deletions will commence immediately. Banishments will be next.
