Voting and YOU!

2 years, 4 months ago

So, I’m wondering, how many of you believe that voting really makes a difference in how the U.S. of A functions? From what I understand, the huge majority of the public believes that these politicians really care for our best interests and that they will do everything in their power to make the country a better place. But the truth is far from that. It’s like all the sheeple lost all ability to rationalize and detect lies (thus sheeple). The only things politicians want are money, power, comfort, and care-free lives, at the expense of the working class’s youth and vitality… They have found a way into tricking us into becoming their slaves, and no one seems to be that bothered by it…So tell me, how do you think voting will enact real change? How is voting supposed to help us transcend past the need for all the distraction in the 1st world, and into the path of true spiritual development and universal insight? (outsight??)

@dartinair,

Let’s get this straight, we’re talking about how the government of the United States of America functions, not how the people of the U.S.A. function. Voters (myself included) need to remember that elected representatives are just people too, working with other people, who are all fighting to either uphold social norms or tear them down in one form or another. Because of the structure of our government as outlined in the Constitution, I will grant you that no, the government will function much the same regardless of who we elect. But, in terms of how that structure is used as a means to pass meaningful and important legislation I would argue that yes, who we elect has a profound impact on how the government functions. If you want the people to be able to transcend into a path of true spiritual development, first we need to clear the obstacles in their path by electing candidates who support equal access to education and healthcare.
