The article you linked to mentions that although change does not happen quickly, it does happen. No, your party or prefered candidate might not win
this time, but they cannot win the time after that, or the time after that, unless you vote.
That is a LIE.
Or at least, it is a lie to people who believe what I do, that a small number of people (a government) must never be given control over, or
responsibility for a great number of people, that ALL people in a nation must vote on the issues which are important to them, rather than leaving such
votes to a parliament which inevitably, given the concentration of political power it is supposed to represent, becomes corrupted by corporate
interest, very often IN ORDER TO GET ANY POWER AT ALL!
All that changes, is the methodology applied to people to make them think that they are being given a legitimate choice. The fact of the matter is,
everyone could vote Green, and the Greens would still either never win an election, or be bastardised by the real powers in nations, which have
nothing to do with government, and everything to do with market rigging, and ensuring all the things which allow it to continue are protected by
loopholes in legislature you could drive a tank regiment through, abreast, with a kilometre on each side as clearance.
And furthermore, the very fact that anyone is prepared to write an article, in support of voting, which espouses the value of being BOTTLENECKED and
slowed down by voting for change, which at best will happen slowly, if at all, rather than SHREDDING the systems which prevent the people from having
immediate control over their own destinies, is evidence that the rot has truly set in.
No one who loves freedom, and understands the mechanism by which even the most free, are denied actual freedom, would ever seek to :
a)Choose the less pungent of two turds.
b)Choose to propagate the myth which keeps their fellow human beings bound in servitude to unseen forces beyond government.
c)Choose to support ANY political party, regardless of its ideology, when they know that the people cannot be the power, until they are given the
power back by those who hold it.
d)Choose to allow their minds to be the repository of either naive, or possibly deliberately manipulative BULL like the article linked to.
Vote, give your power away, let them lie to you, let them slow down change to a stand still, put up with a system which means that change that needed
to happen when you were five years old, MIGHT happen when you are fifty, go ahead. What UTTER and total garbage. I cannot remember a piece of garbage
that made me this angry, that was not related to some sort of genocide or other. I could not find any ownership information for the site from which
this tripe came, but I hope the article authors probably corporate sponsored underwear rots their genitals.
