Why bother to vote?

 

I am deeply disappointed in the revisions of educational bills signed into law by Idaho Gov. Butch Otter (SB 1147, SB 1040, SB 1150, SB 1149 and SB 1089). How can the legislative committee keep approving laws that the majority of voters have already turned down?

I think this shows a great disrespect for the rule of the masses. All of these school bills were voted upon by an overwhelming majority last year. Yet the worn-out excuse of unconstitutionality and the public be damned seems to be the norm these days.

Why bother to vote?
