The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.
   ―  Plato
[Actually, I believe this is the “cost” of indifference, the “price” paid is freedom, security and — ultimately — blood.
And, although I am a life-long Democrat, I am not foolish enough to believe the members  of the party I disagree with (Republicans) are unanimously “evil”; misguided maybe, but not evil.  There have been (and will be) evil Democrats and Independents as well.     —  KMAB]

A Dream Deferred

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore–
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over–
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?
— Written by Langston Hughes
[I’m not sure anymore if I’m just the 47% (the Republicans don’t care about) or just the 98% (and that’s the reason why). Maybe, I’m both…
And yes, I know it’s already on my Poems page, but with the election looming, I felt like offering it up again. After all, isn’t that what “favorites” are all about? — KMAB]

How can you tell if you should be voting Democrat or Republican:

Vote Republican if you hire exterminators to kill bugs in your house.
Vote Democrat if you step on the bugs.

Vote Democrat if you buy books which have been banned somewhere.
Vote Republican if you form censorship committees and read the books as a group.

Vote Democrat if you eat the fish and game you catch or hunt.
Vote Republican if you hang them on a wall.

Vote Republican if you keep your bedroom shades drawn (although there is little reason you need to).
Vote Democrat if you ought to but don’t.

—  From “An Incomplete Education“, by Judy Jones and William Wilson
