Vote Harder!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Strictly Liberty,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"Democracy:

“Democracy: your vote actually counts for very little. The vast majority of the people in control are unelected. The two parties share very similar views on most subjects. In the 110th Congress, people voted for the party line 91% of the time. Only 20.9% of the U.S. population voted for Barack Obama in 2012. Even if your vote did matter, all that you are doing is voting to force your opinions, morals and ideas onto everyone else. (1.9 million bureaucrats: [State, 18,900] [Treasury, 115,897] [Justice, 112,557] [Interior, 71,436] [Agriculture, 109,832] [Commerce, 43,880] [Labor, 17,347] [Defense – civilian employees only, 718,000] [Health and Human Services, 67,000] [Housing and Urban Development, 10,600] [Transportation, 68,622] [Energy, 109,094] [Education, 4,487] [Veterans Affairs, 235,000] [Homeland Security, 208,000]”

My Commentary: Keep voting harder, slaves!
