Your vote doesn't matter.

America's two-party system is very convenient, isn't it?

Divide and conquer.

One man offered to the Democrats and one man offered to the Republicans.

Both working for the Controllers and not the American people.

In my country, voting is mandatory.

I probably wouldn't vote is it wasn't mandatory. It's nothing but a waste of time.

What do they do to you if you don't vote?

I think you can get a fine. I never attempted to find out.

I intentionally did not vote (US). I will not support a racket con game that is not only rigged but designed to make me irrelevant.

It makes me sick watching the campaigns with millions of people happily screaming for their candidate, and even more so watching the people who are angrily divided to keep the illusion going and the puppet show at center stage.

Most often, no, I don't vote. Not out of apathy, but as a deliberate decision. The only thing your vote counts toward is endorsing a faux democracy. If everyone stopped voting, the sham would be exposed.

But this time I did break down and actually vote, to be a part of this "historical election" and to piss of my sister-in-law.

Even though you voted to be a part of this historical vote, it truly wasn't historical in the sense that the people made it happen.

The CONTROLLERS made it happen.

Obama was running against McCain.

The options made it a slam dunk.

Agreed. That's sort of why I put it in quotes.

I too have voted out of spite in the past. Sometimes it's more fun than drinking.

I guess I got caught up in the Obama-mania, so I voted for him. They were pretty effective in restoring people's faith in the system and that their vote actually mattered.
