Voting is not a proxy for democracy, not just in Egypt or Ukraine, Russia or Libya, Tunisia or Afghanistan--but also not right here in the USA. I am struck by the similarity of the votes in Crimea and the trio of Egyptian polls done and to come to US party caucuses and primaries. In all cases the choice is often between bad and worse and incompetent. So many people won't vote, in fact abstaining from a "choice" they want to avoid.
