How the hell did the Tea Party come to even be noticed? Because right wing idiots banded together.
Ron Paul could have been an excellent candidate , for all the online support , nobody gave a !! to walk their[..] over and vote for him. Who fault is that ? The Voters.
Even more , you're life isn't determined by simply what the President does. You do realize , there are local issues that can be fixed in your community ? Social issues that can be fixed in your state? What is your reason for not voting in those places (where a majority of whites , and elders make up the voting populus) ?
Hold on , let me guess , because a Dem. or Rep sits on seat , you think its' hard for a 3rd party to get support locally , or at the state level [pic] Far from in comparison to the president.
Even more , how does ignorance not come into play when you just said the sentence before "due to the public believing we only have to choose between" , that is ignorance.
I just posted of a Big Bank memo (Citigroup) , who specifically said in 06 they we're worried about voting power of the 99% , yet still , that means nothing ? [pic]
But outside of that, I guess !!ing (not you necessarily) is the only option , right ? Even though you're living life in such a terrible condition with no opportunities. If you we're serious about the things you spoke , government is so big and bad , and you so powerless , why just sit ? Cause at the end of the day , same dudes who claim anti-govt ideals , won't do !! to change anything. Just as stupid as people who blindly vote.
I could care less if Lupe doesn't vote , I'm not saying hes' dumb for not voting , the nicca is dumb to say voting doesn't matter , and even more, to complain consistently but not do !! to help. Thats !! nicca !!.
Brother, you definitely make a good argument. Unfortunately though, until the country can manage to inform itself of the fact that third parties are a viable option, it won't matter what grassroots movement gets rolling... It will
inevitably pale in comparison to the voting power that the two big parties command. There is a difference between being negative and being realistic about the numbers. At the end of the day, while people don't have much of an excuse to say they physically can't go out and vote, most of us who work for a living don't have the capability to campaign and educate for who we want to represent us. I think that's the biggest hurdle. It's about planting that idea in the nation's collective head if you will, and actually getting it to grow. I can't do it. Can you?
