Well, OP, let's take it the rest of the way down the line of thinking you're promoting.

Maybe you should stop using those government-provided roads and bridges. Stop filing medicare claims, using a 401k, and while you're at it, get off the internet, since it was the government research that created it in the first place.

I think this TPTB line of thinking leads to the ultimate doom that is so sought after on GLP. Maybe some of you will be happier off the grid as completely self-supporting family units, but I don't really believe it.

Believing you are being controlled completely just limits your own world views.

I'm sorry I just don't understand how you got to this state of pessimism, and why you would want to stay in it.

you don't think people would do better than the government?

the internet is an example of growth and innovation without government tampering, its slowed down since the government has started to intervene

the government is sloth, it slows down and leeches off innovation

The internet exists because of the government. They created the environment and funded the research to create it. I seriously doubt that the government is slowing it down. NETFLIX downloads are 30% of the data volume on the US web today. THAT might have something to do with it.

Wrong. The military invented the internet. Visionaries, philosophers and web architects/designers gor together in the early 90's all over the world becuse they believed in the tremendous potential of the internet and its transfomative and consciousness expanding possibile impacts on society. They had idealistic ideas and developed the internet into user friendly and intuitive communications platforms. Then as they were extremely successful, the establishment and government as previous poster said correctly started to leech of their ideas and developmet for economic reasons and for nore control over everyone. Sadly.

Thanks for making my point. Government funding of the research at DARPA, a military agency. Last time I checked, the military in this country is actually funded by the taxpayer through the government.

But here in GLP-land, the militias are privately funded. What are they inventing for the benefit of society?

My POINT is simply that not all government is bad. Too-big government IS bad. Voting helps determine who gets in to actually RUN the government.

As I mentioned before, if it were pre-ordained and money-driven, the Koch/Rove old white men would have been sitting pretty this morning. After all, aren't they the real puppeteers these days? They're the ones with the money. So, respectfully, I disagree with OP the gang that claim that voting is a bad thing.

Thanks for listening.
