I wasn’t going to direct my attention to politics today, however, after waking up and seeing all the Facebook statuses praising or rejecting the outcomes of the elections, I’m left wondering about some things. These things aren’t new, but I suppose I now feel more inclined to write them down. Some things I wonder about voters:
