THE truth about your VOTE in any election
In a so called democratic illusion, your vote was intended to offer you choices about the society you wish to be a part of. So far so good.

Here is what really happens.

To foster the illusion you have a choice, one or more or even several options seem to be available to you.

However, beyond the "feeling" you have choices... there really is none.

Ask yourself, has voting ever landed you into the situation you were "promised"? Or have all promises eveaporated as your "hero" took the reins? Or... if you landed on the losing side... did you notice the same thing happened to "them".

What your vote does do is PERPETRATE and PROLONG the illusion of choices.

That is about it.

VOTING keeps the illusion alive.

I understand where you are coming from, but in not voting just further fuels them and keeps them in power by everyone not playing by their rules - you have to be voted in to become ruler.

The solution is to vote for who we want and vote in real leaders who can look at how the voting has gone in the past and correct it for the future.

They have all the lawyers on their side, we have the peole's will, the two do have to converge at sometime to bring forth a third and better way of living.

Your thoughts?

nope. you are already your own ruler. people are inherently self governing. want change? change the system not the agents.

quick and easy guide for taking control without having to 'elect' anyone:

stop buying.

reduce your consumption.

eliminate debt.

de-job.

barter.

re-localise.

governments are shells for mass mind controll. they all run on money. if they are deprived of money, they will cease to have the means to exist. no-one should have say over how you live your life from thousands of miles away....

Your thoughts?"
--------------------------------------
Well... "they" have hijacked the process.

It seems to me, the way it is set up... that there is but one snake with several heads, regardless the head you vote for, it is still the single snake going exactly where it intends regardless.

Perhaps the "snake" is the body of unelected officials who actually run the various parts of the snake... and the elected officals are but short term facade with no actual powers to steer the snake.

In any event, the possible solutions (without bloodshed) to regaining control of the snake is to;

a) Not vote enmass.
b) Withold the lifeblood (taxes) enmass
c) Run a non politician and vote the hell out of him/her.

d) Resign ouselves to the fact we are screwed and powerless to shape our own destiny.

Use the write-in feature.

I wrote in Tom Tancredo in the last election. Maybe if enough people do, it would make a difference.

I certainly agree with the fundamental point you bring forward which goes beyond what it's normally discussed about this subject.

Never the less I'd like to contribute with this Article:

newsflash *** DON’T KID YOURSELF *** newsflash

By: Greg Palast

---------------------------------------
>>>> Don’t kid yourselves. If you think Bush’s lower-than-my-laces ratings portend victory for Democrats, that’s what Rove wants you to think. Bush SHOPLIFTED Ohio (and New Mexico and Iowa and…) see, he doesn’t need your vote <<<<
---------------------------------------

"... And he doesn’t count your vote, either. The Rove-bots are preparing next year’s model (probably Good Doctor Frist) and will load the bad vibes on to the lame duck and the lame Dick. Frist will run on a platform of stopping homosexual flag-burnings by enforced readings of the Ten Commandments in courthouses"...

..."What to do?: I wrote ARMED MADHOUSE for just such a contingency. We can’t do a damn thing to stop these dangerous inmates running this asylum unless we know HOW they’re doing it.
Lots and lots of topics. Let’s begin with two: * votes and * war"...

..."Counting all the votes: why not? In America we don’t and that’s not much of an issue for any politician elected under the current system. THREE-MILLION, SIX-HUNDRED THOUSAND THREE-HUNDRED AND EIGHTY ballots were cast in the last election AND NEVER COUNTED: “spoiled” ballots, “provisional” ballots and “deficient” absentee ballots. And — ready for this — 88% of the ballots not counted were cast by voters of color"...

..."WAR: “Operation Iraqi Liberation” (OIL) was NOT, I discovered, about getting our hands on Iraq’s oil and bringing it home — which would have brought down the price of petroleum. The invasion was, rather, about getting our hands on Iraq’s oil and preventing it from entering the market. The oil-poisoning of our foreign policy, the bending of our “War on Terror” into a war on democracy has simply not been addressed. It’s all about “The Quagmire” versus “Cutting and Running.”
It’s about the oil. And when the discussion wanders away from that core truth, we end up in rancid national debates about whether we have the testosterone to send other men’s kids to combat"...

***************************************
WHAT TIES IT ALL TOGETHER? Whether it’s the war on Black voters or the war on the Tigris, it’s all about the money; or, to revise a much-needed and forgotten phrase, CLASS WAR. Them versus Us. The Haves versus the Have-nots. Taking away your vote is of a piece with taking away your Social Security, your child’s educational security and your national security through war on the planet.
***************************************

What do you think? No, better yet, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
