Netherlands March 3, 2010 municipal elections: voting to loose your voice for 1500 days


March 3, 2010 by Tjebbe van Tijen 

Voting day in the Netherlands?

I do not vote, even though I am not in principle against the
parliamentarian system (1500 days mandate without an option to recall or
correct the person/party I have mandated makes it not good enough a system
for me) So I do not delegate my power, still I am ready to influence
parliament or the local council. Flyers where dropping as late as this
morning in my letterbox of people asking my vote who I never heard of
before; so next time we may congregate via Facebook or other social media
to give some real meaning to democracy?. regularly over the whole period of
four years to have a real exchange of opinions, to give guts to the idea of
representation, instead of only mouthing the ?D? word during a few weeks
before elections. There is more potential for participating in government
in society than the casting of the traditional vote.
