One man, one vote

06 August 2013, 14:37

One man, one vote… how many times have we heard the chant or seen the poster? Well in many of the current dictatorships this stands true but with an added line.

It is one man, one vote, one time! After that one time there are votes cast in your name, often several times over without you even knowing about it and often long after you are dead, then there are votes cast knowingly but many times over with people being bussed around from polling station to polling station.

One man, one vote, one time!

Remember this the next time you cast your vote… those you vote for today could be around for the next 33 years or longer!
