The people’s ‘right to suffer’
To a vast majority of registered voters in this country, the right of suffrage literally means the right to suffer! In a pseudo-democracy like ours, that’s their “sovereign” privilege—to inflict misery on the rest of us.
Judging by the number of lowlifes, misfits, idiots and ignoramuses they have been installing in public office, masochism seems to be their thing. So how dare they complain that the quality of their lives under such a rotten kakistocracy has not improved.
