Why do I even bother voting?

For the most part I have stayed away from politics on this blog. I have strong opinions when it comes to politics but I decided to keep those opinions off this blog. Wednesday evening something happened that made me angry. Three and a half months after the voters of Lane County rejected a county wide income tax, Lane County commissioners in a 3-2 decision approved a county wide income tax. Now I understand that the financial situation of Lane County is not good but for three people to undo the will of thousands of voters in this county is ridiculous.

AGREED! How is that at all the will of the people in this city that so values that?
