Apparently there was some voting for primarys today in virginia.

Of course, I'm not taking a part in it. I don't vote.

Interesting though that some people have countered this with "Well if you don't vote, don't complain when someone you don't like gets elected."

That logic is flawed of course. If they are elected by 1 more person than another candidate, then yes, that is true. Also, if I convince others not to vote, that logic could also apply.

But since neither occur, I can not vote, and complain about who gets voted on all I want.
In the end, it boils down to a simple rationale. Why should I try to influence the area I live in when my desires and opinions are so far in the minority? I do not have the values my peers do. And I don't just mean about being gay. It goes far beyond that. So I don't want to take a part in things and I think the people around me don't _want_ me to take a part ... so I won't.
