@xrepub  In your view, do I have to vote like you and think like you in order to be a decent citizen?

The question is: Are you merely a fan of one of the parties, or are you a decent citizen?

Democracy is hard work

You can treat politics like it is something important, or, you can treat it like rooting for a sports team. If the later, you don't have to worry about facts, or the effect of your rooting (voting), it is just fun to support the home team. It doesn't matter if they kneel or win or whatever, you just root for them.

 

If you think politics is important, then you have some obligations. You must inform yourself, you must think about the issues, you must take the trouble to vote, If you don't do these things, you are not a good citizen.

 

If you sat out the last election, or you voted for a protest candidate, or you were uninformed when you voted, or if you refused to do your own thinking about the issues, then you must share the blame for the current state of affairs.

 

This year, you will have another chance to vote. You can vote for those congress persons who blindly supported their party, or you can vote for those who accepted the responsibility of supporting a democracy.
