What difference does it make if who your prime minister, president or head of state is in a democracy if your vote doesn't matter.
Ask yourself, what did your one lousy vote , or the 5 votes of your friends or your family actually do or accomplish.
Nothing, your current president or prime minister would still be in power.
Because of one basic law in the rules of democracy, all it takes is for one vote to win. take a presidential race for example.
Even if everybody in a democracy stayed at home and didn't vote, all the presidential candidate or any candidate for that matter has to do is vote
for himself, and he'll be your president.
But if no one voted, it would be a dictatorship if he tried to enforce his rule. but since most democracies have a constitution that you are
forced into, (because you didn't sign the constitution, you most likely weren't alive), it is the law of the land. you can either accept it,
most do, or not. it still is a choice in a democracy.
In a sense, all you are doing if you vote is to give power to someone else in hopes there is no bloodshed, most likely your own. that is the
theory. or for strength and capabilities, which is ideal and best.
It can be form of cowardice to vote, if you do it for that reason (to avoid someone from picking up a gun and taking rule by force). or out
gunned, not in the case of america though. its a form of giving your lunch money to the bully. in that case it's better not to vote, and let him
pretend he's president etc. while you live your life free and peacefully. that's why some politicians treat the people with contempt and like
To me, it's much better not to vote, since your one vote won't change who is president. at best it will form a tie, and if you do vote, vote
for yourself as a write in, and you'll be president of yourself and your family if they voted for you.
In america if you did this, you'll be legally president, of yourself. in a free land, which america declared in its independence, as a) you
didn't sign the constitution there fore it has no legal authority or binding, unless the laws changed and a contract not signed by you is legally
enforceable and b) you did it in within the framework and power given to you by it. (the write in).
To truly be free in america, vote for yourself, that is the secret. your house i.e. land will be an unratified independent state as it legally
belongs to you, or territory, part of the united states entitled to every protection and privilege as other states and as much right to state hood
as any other state or group of people.
If you don't accept the constitution as legally binding, you'll be an independent state in charge of your defence, police, ambulance, hospital,
taxes, maintenance etc.
This is the brilliance of the american constitution to ensure you remained free. (from the rule of others without your approval, ie. the vote.)
That is why the second amendment is in place, to ensure you have the right to defend your state, your house, from others. and that right to
protect yourself with the same firepower as any state, "shall not be infringed".
That is according to the constitution, which the authors believed are rights given by God.
But your laws can't conflict with God's laws and the human rights given by God and God's law supersedes all human laws as we all live under God.
(this is the only way to prevent total chaos every time you stepped on someones property).
The moral of the story is, to me, and if you agree; so what if obama or the easter bunny is president, as long you're alive, happy and at peace,
let them play president and senators. as long as they don't interfere directly, i.e. show up at your door, be your own president in your own
whitehouse with your presidential car and your own first lady.
In america, especially and every democracy, you have just as much right.
