    Let me see. There are 311 million Americans,minis 76 million kids 0-17, 2 million incarcerated, 4 million on parole, 40 million old folks, don,t know how many vote, 62 million voted, do the math.A lot of fools didn't vote, the only complain about our government.

    That has always been the problem. Apathetic attitude. If you don't like how things are, then vote to change it or stop complaining....I really thought more Americans would wake up and vote. In other words, I gave America way to much credit. Sad...

    go to to your states Secretary of States Voter Registration Rolls website.

    Nevadas is here http://www.nvsos.gov/index.as... and it shows the number of registered voters,active voters and inactive voters from all partisans, new registered voters, etc...

    It however does not detail the number of eligible unregistered voters,

    Last election was the first election I ever voted in. At 67 ys of age, at the time, i never thought I live to see the country go as Fascist as it had; and with some drunk who wasn't elected in the first place, seldom showed up in the second place, and didn't have a clue what was going on in the 3rd place.

    The question is how many people have to refuse to vote before politicians stop claiming to have a "mandate" to do whatever the h--- they want to do to us. The reason they try so hard to "get out the vote" is because it is the only way they can justify their crimes against us and their predation on the "citizens," including the peaceful people who just want to be left alone and not forced to pay for all the harmful things that government does.

    My thoughts exactly.
  • JoLost bob h. 2012/05/04 06:49:06
    It would be awesome concept. "I didnt vote for your election, so I am not obligated or bound to your policy or the support of it".

    The truth...

    The more that fail to vote give all the authority to those who do.

    Thats the only problem with this logic of not voting....

    That logic assumes that voting has any effect on what the government actually does. When all politicians (no matter what their campaign promises) have every incentive to grow the government more intrusive and tyrannical every year, the choices between candidates you are allowed to vote for are meaningless. As long as government has a territorial monopoly on the legalized initiation of violence (the very definition of government), voting is just an expression of consent for that monopoly and that violence. Or worse, if you believe your vote actually affects anything, it is an attempt to impose your desires on everyone else through the violence of government. No matter how "noble" your desires, using the evil means of violence perverts the good ends you intend. Evil means always lead to evil results, no matter how good the intentions.

    not that I totally disagree with you, but as I said, abstaining from voting is yielding in submission to whatever those who do vote in a majority chooses for you.

    See California's proposition 8 for instance.

    From a state level, a majority has the ability to effect changes in Federal Policy 10th amendment flexing. See Arizona, Montana, etc

    The 2012 election hasn't happened yet, so it would have to be a prediction.
