Voting is an exercise in self deception and manipulation. Representative democracy is a joke. Direct democracy (ancient Athens) was a nightmare. You would never see me support the idea of direct internet voting (even secure voting). Republics simply don't have kings/queens .. they have some form of oligarchical rule. The US is no different, we have had an oligarchy from the beginning. People believe that voting makes a difference ... but only at the margins is this true, in most elections. Citizens need to have the false self assurance that they matter, that their anonymity and poverty aren't the only aspect of their existence. With voting, the anonymous, the poor ... feel a momentary jolt of power. Like when I get a shock in Winter time, walking across a carpet.
Civics 101 is false, in every country. But I am not a revolutionary, I am not indignant (except against self destructive stupidity). It is what it is.
Political correctness says ... only say good things or nothing at all. Keep head up ass, so you can't see reality (insert ideology or religion here). Everyone today gets a gold star, even if they don't participate. Snowflakes.
Are there any constructive ways in politics? I have told you people ... that you have to stop voting for self destruction. You need to replace the two old parties entirely ... you need to start that with a powerful third party. Trump is doing that, if he continues to Center, and marginalize the DNC and RNC. Is that clear enough? Instead you want to argue about the color of the chairs on the Lido deck of the Titanic. It is too late ... you are all Pod People.
