themanofmanyfaces asked: Hello my friend! I come to you today with questions of pure curiosity. What is your political efficacy so to speak? Within this blanket statement I mean in the ideas of- Does your vote count for anything? Do you believe the surface statements we receive are the truth? As well, I know you are aware of the main sources of funding for both political parties, do you believe which party/person takes office truly makes a difference?Any other bits you'd like to include will be gladly accepted. ThankYou
Wow a lot of good questions, I am in the camp that voting is meaningless. Even if it was fair which it can never be, the majority decide what is best for the minority. Money buys democracy.
Government, in it’s last analysis, is organized force. — Woodrow Wilson
You have to see the state for what it is: The State: A centralized coercive monopoly, which claims the right to initiate force within a given geographic area.
So, if I intend to use the ballot box as a means to violate the rights of others, it’s okay if the odds are against me? If I am but a single soldier in an army of thousands, it’s morally okay to fire at “the enemy” because my bullets won’t win or lose the war?
We all feel whether we choose liberal or conservitive, or independent, that if we choose that way it is best for us and the majority, because we always feel we are speaking on behalf of the majority. Who cares about the minority or the individual? Why can’t you as an individual decide what is best for you?
When a majority rules, a minority is ruled. — Robert Klassen
