Now before all you mathematical physics geeks get all down on me, let's just assume that for all practical purposes leap year falls every four years. Well guess what, so does our presidential election.
Henceforth, I declare in the name of democracy and certainly not in the name of capitalism that presidential election Tuesday be a national holiday. This simple and effective holiday would ensure great voter turnout. There could even be Super Tuesday Parties with everyone watching the score, I mean vote.
Think about it? What is the downside? Oh, that's right, it could actually increase turnout and the capitalists would have to pay everyone for gasp, another holiday.
Can we just do one thing for freedom and democracy? Or does it have to be.... If it's free make it illegal.
ciao and peace
