Why Waste Your Time & Vote


Some say you are exercising your democratic & constitutional right when you vote. I say Do Not Vote! because if you vote (it does Not matter who you vote for) you support the current system & leaders that don't give a crap about you. so, if you vote - you get what you deserve from a utterly, unfixable, & corrupt to core system.

If you payed attention in your high school Civics/Government class, you would know that your vote does Not determine who will become President of the United Sates. The Electoral College actually votes/"picks" the President into office - not you! The members/representatives of the Electoral College can go against the popular vote, even of the people & area they are supposed to represent. They can vote anyway they like without you permission and most people wouldn't know the difference.

A recent example of this is the 2000 U.S. Presidental Election. Al Gore won the popular vote by over a half million votes. But, George W. Bush won the Electoral vote. How did that happen ?
Do you "really" know what is going on ? I seriously doubt it ?

This situation has happened in the British elections in recent years and also can appear in any Parliamentary system in the world.
