Parts of your post had me laughing but honestly it is sad if you believe the garbage you just wrote.
Truth is if you cannot examine the viable candidates the different stances they have on the issues and make a choice that would be laziness or
ineptitude to discern the issues. If you are not voting because you claim it would be in support of the status quo it is a mixture of being apathetic
and pathetic. The old saying was it doesn’t matter who you vote for they are all the same is being apathetic. Those who have just given up and are
not willing to discern the differences and make a choice based on the positions that they see as the best course for the nation are apathetic some
would call them lazy but apathetic is the best definition.
If, tomorrow I decided to refuse to vote to deny consent to an over-extending, tyrannical government, does that mean I'm apathetic?
I would call that as someone being idiotic.
Deny consent is the new term or excuse now. That is a pathetic excuse.
Let’s examine facts. Will you accomplish anything by not voting? No you will not. I have asked these questions of many people they have not given
logical answers to date if you have good answers I would love to hear them. Please explain how quote UN quote denying consent will affect the
I have seen so many elections where people have made their excuses for not voting and how they refuse to be part of the system but it is only in this
election where I have heard people try to perpetrate there inaction as denying the government.
You call me foolish.
Just how is voting giving permission and do you think by not voting you are sending a message?
Do you think as you put it denying them consent in anyway affects them?
Many in the government are happy that people do not vote there have been campaigns run that try to discourage people from voting.
As individuals we have very little power or say in the government and most of the power we have is in the form of a vote.
Your avatar is of RP I wonder if he was in the race would you be voting for him. If you answer yes but say you will not vote now that only shows as a
crybaby mannerism. I am not going to assume that’s the case with you and hopefully you are not that small of a person that just because you’re
candidate was deemed by the rest of the nation to be unfit that you would decide you are just not going to participate. Those people I attribute to
the spoiled brat generation where if they even participated in a sport got a trophy where they are all winners even when they lost.
The people who are voting Gary Johnson or any third party are the true activists so stating you are denying the government by inaction should be
considered as an insult to those people. I respect those going to the polls waiting in line to vote for Garry Johnson or any third party they are not
under the delusion that their guy will win but that there vote is there voice and it is making a statement that they do not approve of the current
system. A person who does not vote is not heard and thinking otherwise is a delusion. There were people who didn’t vote because they couldn’t read
and it was embarrassing to them but at least those people had a legitimate reason not to vote but can you guess how much those in power took them
serious? People who do not vote have no voice and are not heard nor should they be listened to.
There is plenty of substance to this election please don’t be too lazy to look at it and decide that would be foolish.
