I walked down the street to the Church of the Advocate to cast my ballot yesterday morning. It’s something of a tradition since my neighbor Debbie volunteers each Election Day. Talking to her is my favorite part of the experience. Voting for the latest talking head? Not so much. The U.S. American democratic system is so corporately bought out, it feels like a shame to even participate. I think most U.S. Americans exhibit that kind of indifference because they feel powerless to change anything at all.
