I live in a small town. And the town votes on things town related.
Recently the town had a vote on building a new 'senior center'...a center for people that are on the verge of dying.
Money not so well spent.
So they had a vote about using tax dollars to build such a thing and I wasn't even aware of said vote until after the voting had passed.
I read about it after the fact. And the 'senior center' thingy passed by four (4) votes and the newspaper proclaimed:
"EVERY VOTE COUNTS! Don't ever let it be said that your ONE single vote doesn't matter because this vote PROVED that ONE vote does count."
You see....if I had voted the thing still would have passed by THREE (3) votes.
SO TO SUM UP:
I'm glad I didn't waste my time voting...and hopefully after all the 'seniors' die they make that 'senior center' into maybe a cool pool room or cigar bar or gas station.
TO FURTHER SUM UP:
One vote never counts. They should make each vote worth ten votes and then maybe more folks would vote. And I should be in charge.
