You don't understand. Voting is a teaching and learning tool. It teaches politicians what we the people want and it speaks volumes of who we are as people.
Yes, it's a puppet show but people of good will should always speak their mind and motivate our elected officials to do the right thing. We are giving them fair warning.
I am a spiritual person. I believe God watches our decisions in life. I am what I think, and what I do....so are politicians. Putting people of good will (servants of the people) in office from the bottom up is the only way to motivate the higher ups for the true change we seek. That, and much repentance and prayer in our own lives.
The problem is that once some politicians get into office they forget (or never cared) that they where suppose to be the servants...or from a spiritual standpoint....the foot-washers of the people. I would say most in washington...have never realized this and took on the position for fame, wealth and power. That attitude has got to change for the betterment of our country.
Being vocal is good, but it has nothing to do with voting. The game of voting is the tool they use to divide and silence us.
The voting game is multifaceted, some go to choose the lesser evil, others, the power elite, present it as a 'free choice'. End result ? The divided society, where one part (those who woken up) 'respect' the will of the other part (those who either did not or vote 'lesser evil' anyways)
So, no. I don't buy that lesson thing. This lesson has been running for a while and people haven't learned anything.
The only way to defeat 'show' the elite what we really think is not to give them 'ANY CREDIT' of trust, because they proven times and times again they DON'T deserve any.
For some reason there is a glitch in the system and I can't reply to you Dobrolub....so I will reply here instead.
I agree, many of them have not learned anything....that is why I added that we are giving them fair warning by voting. Just like the elite are supposedly giving us fair warning before they do what they do.
Where I don't agree (respectfully) is that you put all of the blame on our division on the elite. They are just taking advantage of the fact that we are all ready divided. I would disagree with the liberal mindset whether there was the elite or not.
What we really need to look out for is who or what is going to try to falsely bring us together in peace. Again I say....a false peace....a false agreement. That is when you will truly lose all say....and may even lose your life if you disagree.
