Great afternoon in #Palmerstown but it’s clear that crime & anti-social behaviour are a problem. I’m going to try get as many bright canvasses in there as possible to offset the fear factor people have opening their door on dark evenings. Not always possible but will try! #BE19

Couldn’t dare bother people during tonight’s big match anyway!! #COYBIG

On the question of actually voting and how to fill in your ballot paper.. Go to the 'how do I vote' section..Paragraph 8. "You put a no 1 beside your first choice candidate. You can choose one person if you want OR as many as you want... Just number them 1,2,3,4+ in order of your choice. Tampering is one concern, but there are far deeper structural questions to be asked. For instance, throughout the history of mankind, I'm not aware of any population ever having been asked whether they wanted to be ruled or not. Rule was always imposed, so the decision was never democratic. How can one have democracy within a system that was undemocratically imposed on us by brute force? It's a basic enough question and it should be known that there are plenty of viable and fully sustainable alternatives to top down rule, and there are also alternatives to enforcement (using force to achieve compliance). So this leads us to an even bigger question: what of Freedom? "If you don't vote or spoil your vote, you are actually voting for the status quo." That's a myth, taught us in school by the ruling order. If you do vote, what you are actually doing is abdicating your personal agency, your personal power, to an elected representative: you are abdicating part of your decision making capacity, as well your capacity to act independently. Those you elect can then force on to you what you can and cannot do. Even worse, your chosen person may not get in, or might be outnumbered and you then feel you have to obey people strange to you. That's voluntary slavery. And that's just the representational bit. The other dysfunctional bit is 'binding consensus' voting, ie two wolves and a sheep voting what's for dinner and the sheep is forced to accept their decision; we are all forced to accept their decision. Clearly, participation in the decision should be voluntary, with an option to walk away: of course, you can only walk away, if you retain your personal agency. As it currently stands, if you walk away, you are deemed an outlaw, rather than a free person. Something is rotten in the state of our subservience; we are only ghosts of our potential selves. In Ireland it's not the fraud at the ballot box... presentation of proof of identity is easy..but what happens after the polls close, the ballot boxes are moved to police custody for overnight security as the count doesn't start until 9 am the following day... (Realistically the count should commence once the ballot closes) Gives ample time to tamper with the ballot papers------ well ! We had several incidents where ballot boxes went missing for long periods. Mysterious or what.
