Prior to last year's CUSA debacles, I never understood the mentality of the non-voter. I had always eagerly voted in every election I have had an opportunity to take part in, everything from federal elections to internal school elections.
However, in the aftermath of Shinerama-gate and Bruce-gate, I figured it out. The CUSA system is just so corrupt, so petty, that I can now completely see how a voter would look at any system, be it CUSA, or the federal government, or politics in general, and just say "This system is so broken, I don't even want to be associated with it."
Thanks for giving me a first hand lesson in the problems facing modern democracy, CUSA.
