voting redux

Last November I posted my opinion about voting (it's not that tragic if you don't always do it). The result was a firestorm -- or what passes here for one -- of comments.

Well, here is another point in favor of my position. So there.

Interesting, but the reasons the author posits for the smaller voter turnout are pure conjecture. Nobody really asked the folks why they didn't vote so we can make up all kinds of reasons. He may be right but there's no way to prove it without some better data.
All this reminds me of the story of the Republican guy who made a deal with his Democrat friend. "Our votes will just cancel each others' out, so why don't we just stay home?" They agreed. Another friend heard about the arrangement and commented that it made sense. The Republican replied, "Well, yeah, except I feel kind of guilty--I made the same deal with six other guys."
