Not going to reply to anyone in particular, because it is towards multiple people.
The best sold lie of democracy is that of the secret ballot.
You do have a vote, but does it really count? Think about that for a second. You have no way of knowing at all, if your vote actually counts. The
"secret" ballot, is just that, a secret, from everyone, even you.
In the US you have somewhere around 200 million people voting. The more people you have, the easier it is to hide any foul play. They can put anyone
in power that they want, and no one would ever know the difference. Here is just how easy it is:
You put together a group of candidates, have them debate about whatever "hot button" topics seem to in the news.
People vote via secret ballot for the candidate they like best.
Throw away votes
Make up numbers to support your choice, the rest come in behind them. No one will argue, because of the secret ballot, someone must have voted for
Rinse and repeat for other party
Have two "elected" candidates facing off for the ulitmate prize.
More debates but each person comes at the topic from their own ideological side
Again, ignore votes, put in your choice, no one is the wiser because everyone thinks their vote actually counts.
President now runs country exactly the same as the last guy, because that is what he is supposed to do.
Watch people on losing side bitch about the new guy (even though there is no real change in anything)
Repeat every 4 years.
I have the firm belief that elections are a kangaroo court if you will, they are a side show spectacle put on by those in charge to make believe that
they actually have a say in how things are run. The outcome is already determined before the opening act begins.
