I have decided that there is a problem in politics today. No, not the politicians who twist words to make what they say seem good, not the big
corporations who pay off the media and the voters, not the media who puts out propaganda fulfilling their own agenda, no... those are all problems
that need to be addressed, but not here.
The problem lies within a different group--the people. On one hand, there is a small group of people who know who they are voting for, and exactly why
they are voting for them. That crowd does not need revision. In fact, I enjoy those people. Even if you disagree with me in politics, know why
you disagree, then all is well. Then there is a group of people who vote for who someone tells them to vote for. Be it the media, their parents, their
neighbor, whatever, they do not know what they are doing. This group is a bit annoying, but it should be pointed out that every party, every candidate
has their fair-share of these voters. Yeah, some have more than others, but overall it is a threat that may never be absolved...
Ok, but here is the last group. Imagine there is a perfect candidate. This candidate has a flawless voting record and has never flopped on a decision.
His morals are strong, he abides by all the rules and does not accept money from corporations. And on top of all this, you like him! You agree with
nearly everything this man says, yet you still refuse to vote!
Why would anyone not vote if they believed i the candidate? The excuse is always that "oh, well my vote doesn't matter. It won't get counted
anyway." So what?! You are just going to take this corruption we live in? Isn't that EXACTLY what the government wants, is for everyone to bow down
to it? Tell me how that fixes anything? They keep controlling us more and more, and we just sit back and say, "oh, well my vote doesn't matter."
Yeah well our vote doesn't count until it is exposed to the open world! We are getting very close to a political breakthrough right now, I know it.
We just need to keep pushing forward to the goal, and voting is what will get us there!
One last thing. If Ron Paul's votes are skewed in the polls, and they are much higher than they appear on TV, I get it that there is corruption in
our world that we may not be able to fix easily, but then who knows the real numbers? I bet to you that the people rigging the votes, they know the
real numbers. Wouldn't you be scared if you saw people awaking as a political over-seer? This fear that we invoke by "casting a vote that does not
matter" is motivation alone for me to vote. And I think everyone else needs to do the same. What is more important for an hour of your life to just
go down and vote?
I assure you, the time you spend on Facebook, or the time you spend watching TV can be dwindled by an hour and no bad will come of it.
ATS, I beg you. I beg you all to consider what I have said. It is most frustrating to see people on here littered with the mentality that the
government wants us to maintain. You cannot say you are awake and not do anything about it, you just can't. Take a stand while we still have a chance
to put a good president in office.
