An idea worth spreading

One of the things that really bother me is that there are a lot of people in Pakistan who do not want to vote. They don't think that any political candidate is up for the job and that all of them are corrupt and consequently not worthy of their vote. I agree with them to a large extent but I don't believe that not voting for anyone is a solution. By not participating on the day of election, we give those who want to come into power through unfair means, a freeway to fulfill their desire and ruin the entire democratic setup. Why not vote for the least corrupt? Why not vote for the best among the given options, no matter how obnoxious that choice be, and take a few leaps in the right direction rather than not moving at all? Democracy takes time to evolve. Take part in it, give it it's due time and then bare the fruit for all your patience.

Talk to me about

About anything at all. Why limit yourselves to just a few subjects? If I'm not familiar to that subject/topic, I'll learn something new!
