Getting Voted Off the Island on Facebook

Some of the people in Richardson Heights had the bright idea of setting up a Facebook page just for political expression. The intent was to keep political speech off the main Heights Facebook page. It seems to have worked out well.

But, there was one of those “evil” and “despised” kind of people who prefers to post “anonymous”.

This weekend, their time with the group came to an end. The group members were asked to vote if they wanted to let anonymous stay or force him to depart. He/she added a category on which to vote which read “Funny the one that posted facts cannot post … Democracy at work! Sorry Socialism”. That probably didn’t help him/her much.

His adding that selection made me change my vote to let him/her stay. Sometimes the funniest things come from people who post anonymously. And who doesn't like to have fun? Come to find out though, voting “don’t care” did not remove my “No” vote.

I’ll be going to the official polls in just a little bit. Maybe this year year my lucky year, I can vote both early and often.
