**VOTING** i do every day, ever moment, and every choice of my life :) but the way most people mean vote as in to another person to represent me/them/us, i just can't, iv chosen to represent myself and change the world with my actions then to hope/depend/ or vote on another to...

i don't need or want people to think the way i do, i hope they choose what works best for themselves, however so you may understand me and where i come from ill explain my top problems with the idea of voting in the conventional sense,(going to focus just on the presidential vote)

first problem is my vote literally means nothing, why does it? well its not popular vote wins, its state by state "electoral collage", and i live in according to the currant mass illusion people play a part in NY state, at least that's what they think, me i see earth and people playing part in an illusion on a massive scale, anyway NY state is (no matter what) going to be Obama no matter which way i choose to vote or not to vote nothing is going to change that, short of him dieing or leaving the presidential race, but that was not because of my vote... so how does it matter as far as presidency i personally can't see any logic pointing to that it does, other then for vicarious thrill of (ooohh my guy won yeah i voted for him) and/or (NNOOOO my guy lost booo) lolz,

My second problem is... i have strong reason to believe the vote is rigged and this is all just a show for the illusion of there being a choice(as far as in the arena of who you vote for) next i find the way the entire system is set up as quite retarded, as in intelligence was not considered in its creation, lastly (for now iv got an almost endless list hehe) not only are a large amount of problems created by this system, it has no way of solving them (you cant solve a problem form the same mind set that created it) we going to need a totally human developmental shift, awakening and many personal actions to truly change things in a massive worldly way and direct it on the course you would like it to be, good news is i do think that is happening... that's where i am coming from currently so you may understand me,

either way no matter what you choose, belief, think, or do i have much love for the, and wish you the best always

I'm not an undecided voter, i decided not to vote a long time ago lol, the way i vote is the way i live my life and that which i support directly, the projects i undertake, what i decide to educate myself on... and that has had a way bigger impact then this voting business ever did :) but that's just me, for true change, iv become very very grass roots orientated, be the change you want to see ♥, that's exactly what iv been doing and been having a blast doing it,(if your not having fun then i think your doing it wrong lol but again that's just part of my currant philosophy) and my noticeable effectiveness keeps growing and thous that are ready want to participate in the change i help and thous that are closed and not ready well i skip over them hahaha, much love all, much love to all

I voted for Barrack Obama, believing that he was the change we could believe in... blah, blah.  I've since become more educated on the subject.  This is why I'm not going to vote again (until we have a different system of representation):

1. Voting is rigged.  Nod to Fred for posting this HBO video on Want to Know: http://www.wanttoknow.info/electionsvideodocumentary

2. The president is a puppet of the controlling elite, so even if your vote did count, it wouldn't matter who got voted in.

3.  I'm hoping that enough people figure this out and stop showing up to vote.  What would happen if there was no one coming to the polls to play the game?

As George Carlin said,

"The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice … you don’t.

You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own, and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear.

They got you by the balls.

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying … lobbying, to get what they want … Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want … they don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking."

What would happen if there was no one left to play the game?

...I entertained the same thought. What if no one showed up to vote? What would happen? It is obvious by now that either choice leads to the same result. How do we demand better for our country and our future? Where are the promised big changes and how would they be implemented? Some times I think that a great cataclysm would be best for all and If I die...so be it.

Here's something worth voting for. However, I do hope activists in California will do more than vote. The need to man the ballot boxes, do exit polls, etc. to make sure the votes actually get counted.
