because we care about our country

Some young people came around doorknocking to get me to vote National.

I did not eat them.

Instead we had a rather jolly conversation about democracy and politics. They were nice enough, but unable to expand upon the empty rhetoric they had been drilled with about what National stood for and would do, in the end suggesting I ring the candidate they were stumping for, which would be highly amusing, I imagine. I avoided ranting but hopefully planted a seed or two by asking questions.

Anyhow, it was good to see young people actively engaged with democracy, even if they are sadly misguided. 😛

Reminds me I should get off my arse, too.
