Although I can sympathise with the notion of choosing the ‘better of two evils’, this cannot be the end of the story. Our civic duty cannot and should not begin nor end with the presidential elections. There was a lot of excitement when Obama got to power but nothing really changed – not the drone strikes on innocent civilians, not Guantanamo, not the unequivocal support for Israel, not even the gunning down of innocent black men by the hands of the police. This is why participatory democracy is so important. If the people do not safeguard the democracy regardless of who is in power nothing will ever change. So vote but don’t let that ever be the end of the story.
