Thats exactly what fascinated me most about this poll. 5000 members to 21000 guests. I keep thinking why would you bother to vote on a site you are
not a member on unless of course, you are deliberately trying to influence the results of the poll? I know there are always lots of visitors but the
voting number here suggests a particular interest, which I would have thought would have led that voting visitor to vote.
People on this site, except the obvious trolls, are here because they think for themselves. Human's aren't clones so there's diversity of view,
but the thinking process works here and ideas flow. Any government with unrest at its periphery is going to be on the alert, and in the West we
haven't had uprisings against good old capitalism, so it must be a jolt that the gravy train is grinding to a halt.
I was glad the poll gave a very clear message about how pis-ed-off people are at the obvious symbiotic relationship between money and government that
is not a reflection of the democratic values people think they are all voting for.
I don't understand why, if this site earns money from advertising, it doesn't make membership a requirement for voting on its polls which would
increase its revenue, or is its revenue based on hits or something like that
