    Re: Do you vote? (poll)

    Often times, I don't support the current establishment so I don't vote. If I vote, it is in protestation and voting out incumbents.

    I take my vote seriously. People died for my right to vote and I don't my caste my vote haphazardly. If I vote, I will cast my full vote.

    Show me a successful democracy. Outside of the United States-- or Canada, barely-- I can't think of a single democratic government on the face of the Earth that I would not be morally obligated to attempt to overthrow if I were a citizen. There's certainly no such government in Europe or Asia, and I would be deeply surprised to learn of any in Latin America or Africa.

    To each his own, I'll take a Democracy over a dictatorship anytime.

    There was a time that I would have said the same thing, but I'm looking at the democracies of the world today and I can't say that I approve of the results.

    Do you think our Democracy would be made stronger or weaker by more participation by the public into making our Democracy work?

    Jeez, ignore my continent why don't you.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Depends upon what you mean by “the public”.
