I voted for the first time yesterday. It wasn’t a very overwhelming experience. Nobody that I really wanted to vote for.

What’s the point in a democracy that does such a poor job of representing the people? As far as I can tell, no party fully represents a single person (other than the party themselves). The normal voters have to pick the closest fit; Everyone compromises and hopes for the best.

Of course, the best never comes. The various political parties don’t put their real agendas on the table. No sir, can’t have the people getting what they wanted.

Excuse the cynicism of this post, it just seems that our countries are far from what they could be.
