Don’t vote? Don’t gripe.

Some decades ago, on a back road in coastal Oregon, there was a sign on a fence saying “Don’t vote? Don’t gripe.” I think that’s a fair position. If you can’t be troubled to take part in governing your own country, you don’t get to complain about the results.

On the other hand, if you did vote (and I hope you did), here’s your fully official license to gripe. Make the most of it.
