I guess I feel differently about voting. Like a standardized test, I never
leave an empty box. If need be I will simply vote for the one I hate least.
In every issue/race on the ballot, one of the choices has to win and I am
going to influence that choice in some manner.
Leaving the box empty does nothing for the election except allow the pundits
to issue whatever outlandish statements they want about why someone actually
cast a vote for that particular race.
If the vote tally had been 10 - 9 with 10,000 people showing up to vote,
what does that tell the winner? Only that he had one more friend than the
loser. He really could care less why the other 9,981 people did not vote
for him. That issue is now four years away and a lot could happen in that
Well Jerry, the only thing I could do on my absentee ballot for sheriff was
to leave it blank. I had read too many negative things about Landry but
neither could I give Stephens my vote. Hopefully Stephens realizes he got
back in only because of a lack of true choice in the election.
I don't believe the b.s. about "Jack has kept the parish safe for 23 years".
The parish has been safe for that long due to the character of the residents
