Vote for the least desirable, on again

The one time I voted in New Zealand, was about 15 years ago. I’m not anti-establisment, but I just can’t see anyone worth voting for.

This year in Eumseong, they’re having local body elections, again. For some reason, (perhaps anti-corruption?) it’s annual, as in every year.

No groupies this time, or should I say, not yet. But they are handing out name cards. The cards themselves have a mini résumé on the back of the candidate. The cards, are there to sell, no doubt about that.

  5. Touche! The Feds like to send letters, keeps their budget up.
    To post a vote from Fuzhou I would have to travel 1000kms, by air, north or south, Shanghai/Guangzhou, to a Consulate. Aus voting Seoul in 2004 was a possibility, at least! I just don’t like receiving an officious letter.

  6. […] me it’s just been a time to avoid getting a calling card from the groupies. Honestly it’s like the streets have been hit by politically crazed […]
