“Voting is not an 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

    I've been struggling with this, and I like how you worded it. It helps me at least feel not alone in my thoughts about not wanting to vote, although I will. :/

    I think a large percentage of blank votes should render empty seats in parliament (perhaps those seats could be temporarily occupied by non-affiliated, ordinary folks, who could use it to give the PEOPLE some actual influence?) instead of being completely ignored as it is now.

    That would indeed be good.
    Judging from my German experience though, the growing number of nonvoters will just get silently ignored by the 1 % and by Goebbels TV, and percentages will just as silently refer to the fewer and fewer people who DID vote.

This is going to be interesting... I am OK, BTW, but I was attacked by two pits in my yard yesterday morning. Police, sirens, yelling, tickets, and fines. I was just taking pictures in my own front yard.

It is the end of all hope, to lose the child, the faith, to end all the innocence, to be someone like me. This is the birth of all hope, to have what I once had, this life unforgiven, it will end with a birth. - Nightwish

How long should I wait before I hear back from Administrators regarding my emails, submission attempts, etc? Haven't heard anything for weeks. :(

    You can PM WebMDave from the toolbar at the top of the forum. Looks like an opened envelope.

If you guys want a good documentary to be angry for the rest of your day, watch Holy Hell. It's a documentary about a small cult that some of us migh relate to.

    The cult in question, Buddhafield, might not be as well known as Scientology or The People's Temple (Jonestown), but I think it does a good job of documenting the typical small cult pretty well. It's not so much about the physical abuse and taking of people's money (although this does happen), but it's more about the psychological and emotional abuse these people fell into. It shows how nobody joins a cult but instead what they perceive as a new political or spiritual movement.

The world is full of a lot of shit, life you deal with a lot of shit, but every once in a while, life surprises you. I would like to say after all the bullshit I have dealt with my whole life and sadness, it is finally giving back something possinly good.

After reading some of the posts on here. Far out. I take my hat off to all of you living in the southern Bible Belt. You have to put up with some crap. Having your employment at risk because of your religious believes

    Agree. The good thing about where we live, Chilled, is that the vast majority of employers don't care about what you believe, but whether you turn up for work!
