…came to at a soccer game the other day.
There are three reasons (That I could think of)
- The people who should be voting are the ones who don’t, and the ones who do are the ones who shouldn’t.
The ones who shouldn’t are the naive, unable to do math, and easily brainwashed. They are naive, because they don’t understand the way that politics works, unable to do math, since they should know that the probability of their vote making a difference is nill, and easily branwashed, since they all have the “voting is a good thing… It is not only my right, it is my duty…”, message ingrained into their heads.
The only candidates are people who are so power-hungry that they willl spend millions, and use two years of their lives campaigning for the job.
The voters have almost no free will. Since the advent of television, the taller candidate has won nearly 80% of the time. It’s not judged by opinions and ideas, but on looks.
