>Why I did not encourage you to vote


Unlike many bloggers out there, I did not put up an election day post encouraging you to vote.  I figure most of my readers are going to go vote anyway, and those who aren’t probably wouldn’t be convinced by the superliminal argument.

So if you voted, and you did your homework to understand the candidates and issues, thanks.  If you stayed home because you didn’t know or didn’t care, thanks for letting your (hopefully better informed) neighbors decide.

HT:  Mankiw, and "The Ivy Lee" for the Simpsons reference.
