What comes to my mind, when hearing this, or similar topics being discussed, is that our government is representative of the people who voted the politicians into office.Who was it who said we get the government we deserve?The average American is reallyx10 stupid. I don't know who said this, but "think how stupid the average American is. Now remember, half are even dumber than this."(we, on this board, are far, far above average, of course :-))I am also sick of hearing that tired old lie that "My vote counts!" B*llsh!t! Of all the offices I've voted on, from village idiot to Idiot-in-Chief, there are exactly *two* candidates in office that I voted for. And then there are the propositions. Yeah...my vote counts...NOT!You can tell me it's my duty to vote. I'll certainly buy that. But please don't tell me my vote counts. No one believes that--that's the real reason voter turnout is so low.The three biggest lies:1. Of course I'll still respect you in the morning.2. The check is in the mail.3. Your vote counts!
