a vote is a voice
well, in French to vote is "voter" but a vote is not "une vote" but "une voix" or the same word as for "voice". so in that sense voting is speech. Discuss. Norm is worth a read on this topic. When we vote we know what we are doing, don't we? We know that if, for the sake of argument, we voted LibDem, never dreaming that they would go into coalition with the Tories, we can't go back a week later and say we got it wrong. We know that, hein? What do we really think we are doing when we vote?
