How to Be a Better Voter (sheep)

By George Stephanopoulos, PARADE Magazine
H.L. Mencken is often quoted as saying, "No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public."
Great line, but Mencken got it wrong — at least when it comes to voters.

Editors comment-
Actually George, he got it right! Voting is one of the things Mencken would have been talking about when he said what he did. You see George, Mencken was an Anarcho-Capitalist and understood the insanity in voting...too bad you don't.- Mike Wasdin

Ever since I planted my first lawn signs for a county judge as a high-schooler in Cleveland, I've been fascinated by campaigns and elections. Now, 30 years later — after working in the Capitol and the White House, serving in three Presidential campaigns, and covering three more as Chief Washington Correspondent for ABC News — I'm still fascinated.
