Frustrated voter says his ballot still counts
I am also a disgruntled voter, but I still think some of our votes do count.
A previous letter to the editor was written by a reader who feels her vote does not count. That sentiment is easy to agree with, but remember that our area here in central Pennsylvania is mainly a conservative area.
We need to vote to counter areas like Philadelphia. There a candidate can get 100 percent of the vote and sometime more votes than there are registered voters. Yes, I do believe there is voter fraud and there are power brokers that control politics in our country. However, many brave citizens and military people have given their lives for our freedom in the last 237 years.
Their sacrifice must be appreciated. We must continue to vote. We also need to keep informed and continue to vote for people who work for American values and America.
Here is an interesting word ineptocracy (in-ep-toc-ra-cy). It is a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
God Bless America. Yes, we do need a good blessing.
