eheathYou forgot to answer my question :)
I think the whole your vote doesn't matter is what ruins a democracy in general. So many people don't vote, we could have some very different results with our elections if people just went out and voted. Just because it "doesn't matter" doesn't mean you shouldn't do it anyways, it's our privilege as US citizen to vote. If you don't vote, then you don't have the right to complain about our government.
Well we aren’t a democracy nor are we a constitutional republic anymore. Many people don’t vote because they understand that the elections are rigged and favor the financial elites, i.e banksters and corporatists. We are stuck with a ‘ONE-party system’ that presents an illusion of free choice, when they are merely marionettes for the same masters.
The.Natty.VeganThere are people in third and second world countries dieing to get the vote, both blacks and woman underwent a political revolution to get the vote. And you're going to say that your vote doesn't matter? I fucking hate this generation of "your vote doesn't matter". You have one of the most important if not the most important right in the world and you're not going to exercise this right?
Again the elections are rigged. If voting changed anything it would be made illegal. Nevertheless, voting is very important, which is why I hope they rig the election so Hilary wins!
nocturnalNo actually were stuck with two crap parties that hold all the power and get nothing done. As of now you can only vote for the same corporations to be in office. That's it you have no choice.
eheathAgain, its not just about president, its about the house, the senate, local house/senate, governor, mayor. There are so many elections that could be different if people just voted.
Exactly, however, the public does not have a vote in the matter. Look at the banksters who caused the 2008 collapse. One would think that they would be thrown in jail or so much as get fired. Instead, they were promoted and/or decamped elsewhere in the system.
Hey, just because people eat the burger, doesn't mean they wanna know the cow.
