Ron Paul interested us in Saskatchewan!
[QUOTE=AlanC;996142]As someone else said, it's really quite the opposite of that.
How can YOU complain, if you participated in the farce of 'elections'?
1. Your vote won't make any difference TO YOU. Your tax burden and other such things are not going to change based on your single vote.
2. Your vote won't make any difference in general. If it really did it would be 'illegal'.
3. Voting just encourages them.
4. Even if you find someone you agree with on 100% of the issues (which you won't), they're lying anyway. Always have done.
5. By voting you are condoning a system that is barely one step beyond monarchy, itself just one step beyond slavery. Slavery has virtually died out now, monarchy is fading and eventually so will this whole "government" thing (which is basically the threat of violence wearing a uniform and wrapped in a flag). Why keep it going?
6. It costs you time, effort and money. How hideously sad it would be if you were involved in a traffic accident, just to 'vote'?
7. If you DO vote, people tend to ask 'Who for?' Far better to simply reply "None of them."
8. Ron Paul has retired, therefore the one and only good reason for voting is no longer relevant.
We watched early efforts by people such as Ron Paul. I am not a US citizen and not a Libertarian, yet he spoke truth to me and other friends.
