Steve K.: If true, it would be unconstitutional, violates the 1st amendment for one thing. Not voting is one way of protesting.
Rayn: Indeed! Penalizing those New Yorkers who choose to Vacate The Vote in an effort to Withdraw Consent is not only an assault against free speech, and freedom of choice – it also represents a shameless effort to run an extortion racket, too! These political parasites are nothing more than a legally-protected criminal caste!
(Glenn Blain) A state lawmaker from Manhattan wants to make it costly for New Yorkers not to vote.
Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, a Democrat, introduced legislation this week that would establish “compulsory voting” in the state and punish those who don’t vote with a $10 fine.
“Mandatory voting would drastically increase civic participation and transform the political arena by making politicians more reflective of the constituents that elected them,” Glick wrote in a memo submitted with the bill.

Sara: I heard 15k people wrote in Harambe too lmao
Rayn: The silent majority placed theirVote for Nobody! Most Americans are fully aware that Nobody will keep all campaign promises, and Nobody truly cares! But, the DemoRepublicrats always ignore the results, and steal the election, because they have the State, the mainstream media monopoly, and more money, on their side! They are total creeps, and control-freaks!
Wendy P.: I love this! I’m tearing, it’s so funny!
Wendy P.: But seriously, out of the 2 evils, I would pick the known evil, Hillary, and not the unknown evil, Trump. Trump will push that detonate button too.
Genaire: A snake striking you that you can see will hurt you just as bad as the one that strikes you that you can’t. Until people start voting against the mainstream corporate funded candidates we will get the same policies either way.

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork, being shared by an acquaintance fromhere, and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“Voting is not act of political freedom. It is an act of political conformity. Those who refuse to vote are not expressing silence. They are screaming in the politician’s ear: ‘You do not represent me. This is not a process in which my voice matters. I do not believe you’.” – Wendy McElroy
