TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY VOTER TURNOUT ESTIMATES PLUMMET: HAVE PREZ TRUMP PROTESTERS FAILED TO INSPIRE CHANGE LOCALLY?!?!
Amid so many local post-election demonstrations against Prez Trump garnering thousands of protesters and hours of mainstream media coverage, the reality is that only a small fraction of those angry Kansas City residents will be voting in the upcoming election on April 4th.
Turnout numbers in Missouri and KC proper suggest that less than 12% of registered voters will bother to cast their ballot a week from today.
Before news of this low number was put on blast to campaigners, locals offered this encouraging word that hints at the desperate situation for local Democracy . . .
KC Election Board: "Municipal elections in KC (like the one coming up on April 4th) typically have the lowest turnout. YOU have the power to change this!"
To wit . . .
AFTER ONLY FOUR MONTHS FOLLOWING THE ELECTION OF PREZ TRUMP, THE ZEAL OF PROTESTERS TO PARTICIPATE IN DEMOCRACY HAS ALL BUT EVAPORATED AND LOCAL CORPORATE CONSULTANTS ARE COUNTING ON LOW TURNOUT TO PUSH FORWARD HIGHER PROPERTY TAXES ON PO'FOLK!!!
Meanwhile, some really nice causes like the new doggie shelter or less stringent marijuana laws are in jeopardy of defeat despite grassroots support and simply because so many protesters show no indication of getting involved in politics at the city level.
Legendary former Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill once said that all politics is local and while this axiom has proven correct time and time again . . . It doesn't bode well for the promises of protesters to oppose the status quo which elected the widely unpopular but still reigning Prez Trump.
You decide . . .
