+1. Throw in the fact that they both support the income tax, perpetual war, the militarized state at home, the "Patriot" Act, the TSA (Thieves and Sexual Assailants), the cradle to grave welfare state, assassination of American citizens without due process, the war against some drugs, all of the bureaucracies that screw the people to profit big business, "law" making through executive orders, etc., etc, etc., and I can't see how anyone could logically choose between Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. (I'm sure most of you understand that reference; for the few who don't, those were characters in "Hamlet" who were essentially the same, with no discernible distinction between them.)
[QUOTE=JWBooth;996696]Nonsense. Not voting is a rejection of both the process and the outcome. If you vote, you are conferring legitimacy on the whole game and by extension saying you are ok with the outcome. And please stop making a fetish about Democracy. There is nothing noble or desirable about Democracy itself. Democracy sent the Jews to death camps. Blacks were kept in various stages of slavery in the US for over a century because that was the will of the people. Democracy has led to a genocide of Christians in Iraq and Egypt and looks poised to unleash a massacre in Syria. Democracy is the tool tyrants use to distract you from what you should really care about- and that is your liberty. Our natural rights belong to us and us alone. Our neighbors can't gang up on us and vote to remove them by force. Democracy is violence, and by participating in it you are engaging in evil.[/QUOTE]
+1. Very well said.
