I asked you what not voting will accomplish. Let me try again: What will not voting accomplish?
Ill chime in, I don't think you two vary too much in ideology but wires seemed to get crossed in your posts. I tend to agree with MamaJ, I don't
trust the voting system at all. Whether its rigged machines, or usurping a movement, (nominate the cat turns into nominate kitty, the stripper!)
The idea of vote refusal would be enough to turn the system upside down. If you could get a majority non-vote, and hold protests, the leaders would
seriously start worrying about another French revolution. Again, Im not even sure that's feasible.
Look at OWS. Not a single banker was arrested for the fraudulent money/housing markets. OWS was crucified. It doesn't matter if it was hippies, or
hipsters, or gang bangers, or single moms, or whoever was out there. People were out there and they got crapped on. And hated. There were more
arrested of OWSers than there were of the bankers who pushed a fraudulent market. That tells us how stupid the common man is.
We wouldn't even see a hero or a potential change if they were offered. Non compliance is the best you can hope for, and Id be surprised if that
didn't get usurped. The idea that "your vote matters" and "if you don't vote you are part of the problem" is a fallacy. You don't have choice. Two
If you could get an actual vote for a third party or protest vote, either would be easily manipulated. They need fear to drive them as it seems to be
the only thing that works, and the main tool they use on commoners.
