I do not understand those who are upset when they get a say on how they are governed. I would GLADLY go to the polls every month to vote if I could. That would make governments truly accountable. If you don't want to vote, then don't - no one is forcing you to vote. Just because you may be happy having your life controlled by others doesn't mean the rest of us want to waive our right to choose our rulers. If people really think that taking 10 minutes off their life to cast a vote 4 times in 5 years is too demanding, then God help us all.
