So... we are supposed to not vote and.... what?
"Until they introduce third parties. . ."
Who is they? Why do you expect someone to come in and sort your problems out for you?
This is pure stupidity: "My vote doesn't count" - no, it can't, because you didn't vote. "I've never voted because my vote doesn't count" -
Gee... aren't we a tree of wisdom.
This is the problem with this nation - complacency. YOU are the government. The only time your vote doesn't count is when you pass the
responsibility off on the bureaucracy so that you don't have to be pestered with voting about it.
"The big parties are in control, my vote won't count." - Since we're all such flourishing forests of intellect, let's consider that average
voter turnout is just slightly less than 50% of the nation. That leaves roughly 23% voting democrat and 23% voting republican. If just half of you
"my vote doesn't count" mopers would get out and vote for a 3rd party - it would put that party into power, literally, within one voting cycle.
You are the government. You claim to be "enlightened" and "no longer sheeple" - but you're doing the same thing as those who stick to party
lines - worse, even. You're sitting back and expecting the rest of the world to solve your problems.
That has -never- worked in the past. Ever. Get out there and do your damned job as part of the government. Voting is only a small portion of that.
But until you can at least show up at the polls and make the most minimal of effort to be a responsible participant in the government - you really do
have no right to complain. I know you are going to, regardless - but it's really pretty pathetic that you can't even make the most minimal effort
