Suck it up (II)

Eric, of the refreshingly quantitative threehundredeight.com, ventures an endorsement of democracy.

As a political observer, it’s true that I enjoy elections in part because I find them fascinating and exciting. But as a democrat, I strongly believe in the importance of participating in our democratic system and giving every election the attention and self-reflection it deserves. An election is not a burden, it is an opportunity to tell those who represent us what we think of them, and what we want them to do. Being able to participate in our democracy, to re-evaluate the decisions we’ve made in the past, is a privilege and exceedingly important.
