‘NOTA’ VOTE REGISTERED , 27th OCTOBER 2011.

‘NONE OF THE ABOVE’ VOTE , 27th OCTOBER 2011 , STATE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION……

…..the above sample was registered today (Thursday 27th October 2011) at a polling station in Clondalkin , Dublin.

It has been suggested that those that ‘spoil’ their vote on purpose “will effect no change…” and/or “are wasting a hard-fought for opportunity..” – however , in the opinion of those of us that work on this blog , those that vote ‘NOTA’ are to be congratulated for freeing themselves from the ‘pack mentality’.

In the case of this particular State presidential election , replacing one rich career politician with a ‘different’ one from the same ‘Establishment’ pool ‘will effect no change’ as far as the employed and the unemployed are concerned and, as for it being a ‘hard fought for’ privilege , it is a ‘privilege’ that, as an Irish Republican, I neither asked nor wanted anyone to secure for me – a vote in the running of a corrupt State.
Congrats again to those who , in the ‘buzz’ words of this failed political entity , ‘stepped outside the box’ and decided to give the political Establishment a ‘haircut , going forward…’ , in relation to electing a ‘new’ political elite.
There is hope for us yet….!

Thanks,
Sharon.
