That's very unfortunate, because I quite understand why they vote. And I don't look down on them for it; I did it plenty of times myself. I just wish they'd stop punishing themselves with politics and be happy instead.
Politics is a type of slow-rolling torment. I don't want people I love to suffer through it.
Yes, I know that my opinion seems crazy to many people, but again, it's mostly because it differs so starkly from theirs. If my opinion is right, they've been wasting their time, and almost no one likes to consider that sort of thing. We fight such possibilities reflexively.
So, if you like your politics, you can keep your politics. I'm not trying to take it away from you. I'm just saying that I wish good people wouldn't pour their time and energy down that particular drain—I don't think it benefits them.
