The following debate originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artwork being shared by the page, “Vacate The Vote”…
“I will not vote. 1. Voting is immoral; 51% ruling over 49% is oppression. 2. US elections are rigged. Poll fraud, super-delegates & electronic voting machines. 3. The electoral college selects presidents. Only 2 states require electors to abide by the will of the voters. 4. Denotes agreement & permission for the system. 5. The lesser of two evils… is still evil. 6. Pre-selected choices so the establishment always wins (see 2-3). Google: Voluntaryism”
David L.: Glad we agree on the deal with superdelegates. The primaries should be about the popular vote.
“Yo, Dawg! We heard that you don’t like the tyranny of the majority over minority groups…
So, we legitimized the authority of an ultra-minority through a voting majority, so they can tyrannically rule over everybody, accordingly, while you formally select the next elect minority of tyranny to fully control your humanity, in perpetuity!”

Daniel F.: That’s why we have a Constitution which specifies limits on what the government is allowed to do. If democracy is “two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner,” then liberal/constitutional democracy adds the restriction that dinner can’t be the sheep. (Not that the system has ever actually worked very well)
Rayn: As I explained to you previously, Daniel, I wholeheartedly agree with Lysander Spooner, who stated, “But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit to exist.” (Click Here to Continue Reading This Post)
