The question is quite simple.
When 60% of the population decides to vote during a democratic election, it would be a disaster to many countries around the world and if the party that won the election would get nearly as many votes as another party, the winner party would sit in the government for a few years but the party that did not win, would have lots to say and in democratic progresses, their opinions would weigh heavily upon the decisions, for the simple reason that a country cannot have a government with one party that would set all the rules.
That would be very incompetent.
The dream that Democracy can change everything is, and will always remain as nothing but a dream, but a necessary dream to keep up the hope among the masses that maybe one day in the future, everyone will be equal.
It's a stupid dream in cracks that seems to be moving nowhere.
When 60% of the population is voting in USA, it's a LOT... but why? I mean... that is a little over half of the population, usually it's less than 60% even, does that mean that half of the population in the USA doesnt even care about what happens to them, their family and friends and innocents around the world?
Of course not!
In Capitalism, the only true winners are the capitalists, who else?
And that the big american parties do their best to stop voters from reaching the input boxes of votes, is certainly silly! How would you even get THINKING of such a thing?! A party wich claims it's own democratic rights, yet still tries to stop voters from another party to vote? Now that's low!
In the most countries around the western societies, parties of that kind would be banned, or at least looked over if they should keep their democratic rights they have for being a "democratic party".
Alike actions has been taken in for example Germany and Sweden, to Nazi or Fascist parties who spread propaganda about a very centralized governing and a disrespect for the lifes of the people in the opposition.
Yet, most americans are NOT capitalists, Nazis, fundamentalist Christians or fascists.
But about 50% of them keep voting for parties of that kind (more or less).
Thinking of that the american president made clear that he would like it "so much better" if he was a dictator in a Monarchy country instead of a president in a Democratic one... that same president re-ran and WON!
I dont want to see people as morons because every human being is special and eternal, everyone is different and i believe that the bigger mixture of people, the more we can learn from eachother.
so what about this second half of the people... those who are AT LEAST 50% of the american population, the working class?
Yes, im thinking of the black people who are forced to live in certain neighbourhoods, often needs to have 2 jobs to pay the rent, those who without, the white richies would never keep surviving.
The exploited people, the homosexuals! The working class youth! The Communists! The Syndicalists/Anarchists, the Anarko-Satanists, the anti-capitalists/anti-fascists, the vegeterians, the peace lovers, the militants, the anti-parlamentists, the Socialists, those who has lost their right to vote even though they have served their time kidnapped by the government and put in a cell for a year or more!
Where the hell are you?!?!?!
That you are too smart to believe in Patriotism is a well known fact, so it is that you're too intelligent to vote for a party that promotes economical profit instead of human rights.
Those intellectuals who feel slighty degraded for that they are being ruled by capitalists in a government.
Those who steal voting cards from people they know will vote for parties who promote oppression against innocents... yes, you guys... you who like stuff to happen, the Direct Action.
The force in people that will make you throw molotov cocktails upon multinational companies that feed the world with weapons and make you aim your glass bottles at the police when they stand there watching the fascist parades passing by without resistence, in order to protect tomorrow's Hitler?
I just wonder.... where have you gone? To Ralph Nader? I laugh a little and roll my eyes... remember that "The problems in the world today will not be changed by th esame level of thinking that created them."
Albert Einstein said that back when he lived... well tried and true, the same level of thinking that created the problems back in then, has yet not solved them.
Where are you?!
