Election Day for Ciphers
You either have or have not voted by now. Maybe you’ll vote today, maybe not.
All those of you who did/do not are Nothings. Not Democrats, Not Republicans, Not Independents. You are ciphers in the affairs of this country. So just continue sheep-like on with your daily life briefly noting on your way to the store or work or the bar that there are homeless people, hungry people; wars all over the place; inequality/huge inequality between them and us; broken bridges, broken babies, broken promises.
But do not for a minute think you are the least bit responsible. Because you are a cipher. You can’t be bothered to spend an hour or so of your life this year voting. So enjoy this Election Day. Knowing you, the cipher, didn’t affect anything, one way or the other.
Or you could still vote.
