A Problem By Roderick on June 8, 2010 5 The problem with elections is that the incumbents always win. If not the present incumbents, then the future incumbents. Anarchy, Democracy, Left-Libertarian
How about those anarcho-syndicalists that want recallable, directly elected leaders and a new election every 2 weeks?
Why not every 2 hours?
I suppose since the period is less than the time it takes to organize an election nobody would ever be elected!
Back when I voted, I always voted against the incumbents. Maybe there was just something about the word “incumbent” that stuck in my craw. Heck, I even had an “Incumbents are the problem! Vote them all out!” bumper sticker. Ah, the foolishness of youth…
