    People who don’t vote are less of a problem than people who don’t read real newspapers and can’t follow complex issues, but still vote.

    Always some truth behind the humor.

    They vote based on one issue, abortion or gay marriage or gun control and then complain when the candidate puts into effect their other stances which they never took the time to consider.

    But being “concerned” and saying something loudly, no matter how ill-informed, is soooo much fun.

    Calvin really is older than his years. It took me 60 years to develop that philosophy. I’m also partial to being able to say, “I told you so.” One can always get a clearer picture of the issues if one remains objectively detached. It’s when one allows oneself to become emotionally involved that tunnel vision results.

    I believe Calvin’s script (which Watterson wrote) is intended to voice the ignorance and idiocy of a population hurtling downhill toward disaster. Calvin, in this role, is not a detatched observer, he’s the author of impending doom. But you knew that, right?

    I’ve always felt that if one does not participate then one forfeits the right to complain.

    Sounds like a good deal, I’ll take it.
    (Just don’t complain at me … I don’t care)

    Sounds like Bill Watterson thinks there wouldn’t be problems if people watched the news and voted. I thought he was more insightful than that. But maybe back when this was written people were more rational, politicians and issues to be voted on were more honest rather than as deceitful and full of doublespeak as today, and the news more honest and in depth that sincerely tried to inform rather than manipulate…but I doubt it.
