That's right , if we allow the status quo to continue without a challenge then we surely deserve all we get2, Things are as they are supposed to be. We get the government we deserve.
I never meant to infer that with my comments. I stated that voting in a rigged system , imo , gives it a legitimacy that it doesn't deserve. At least when it's referred to as a vibrant democracy.3, You are missing the point. An individual voter can't claim responsibility for what the government does or doesn't do so your question is pointless. I think it would be nice if everyone paid attention and participated. The truth is that more people want to see Kim Kardashian naked than go to the polls. That's ok, the rest of us will do the heavy lifting.
Whilst the politicians and others might bemoan a lack of voter enthusiasm in public , I'm fairly sure that generally speaking and apart from self interest with regards to their personal careers , they privately are thrilled that the WMDs of " popular culture " play such an important role in distracting people away from political activism and inclusion.
An apathetic electorate isn't going to make things difficult for them to maintain their control and profiteering , is it ?
I don't know if that's true or not , I live in the uk.4. No other president, Republican or Democrat has ever has his clock cleaned like in the recent midterm and come out to say that two thirds of the voters who didn't vote would have given him a majority. That's delusional crazy talk. It's certainly beneath a President but I'm not surprised it came from Barry O.
But making lame excuses for poor performances I would have thought is just common currency regardless of who it is and what their profession is
