Nearly Half of Eligible Voters Did Not Vote. At All.

half-of-voters-did-not-vote

Nearly half of all eligible voters did not vote, according to The United States Election Project. Out of 231,556,622 in the Voting-Eligible Population (VEP), there were only 131,018,000 ballots counted.

When compared with the 2008 and 2012 elections, we see almost 9 million less people voting in 2016:

If you count minors and mentally handicapped people, a majority of people in this country effectively voted for no president. If there were anything remotely democratic about this system, we should not see any president elected at all.

Of course, this begs the question, what could possibly grant a person the so-called right to rule others?

Can a majority create the right to rule others? Or is it that the right to rule is something that is reserved for a certain class of people, such as the political ruling class that exists here in the US?

    I tried voting for nobody once and the vast majority voted for nobody too. But alas somebody with fewer votes stole the election. The system is rigged.

      Are you mad?

      LOL

    No group of individuals has the moral, legitimate right to forcibly control another group of individuals. Government would cease to exist if it followed two basic social norms – don’t hit and don’t steal.

    ‘It is self-evident that no number of men, by conspiring, and calling themselves a government, can acquire any rights whatever over other men, or other men’s property, which they had not before, as individuals.

    The majority cannot decide that the rest of us can be ruled unless the rest believe it. No one can rule you if you decide to rule yourself. Just exit the control matrix and you’re free. Simple as that. It’s called “consent” and you don’t have to give it, but we’ve had it mashed into our heads that voting is democracy. No, voting is the consent to be ruled no matter who wins, which is why this country has a huge military whose mandate has always been shoving democracy down the throats of other nations.

    This is good. This election. The social programs failed to get out the votes again. Or those people Expect the system to support them cradle to death. But do not support the system that does or use to support them. This will force Democraps more to center. Republicans gave up on there support years ago. Or as Trump said what do you have to loose. & they wish to find out the loss. Also 1/3 of Latinos voted for Trump. With the illegals gone that would be over 60% voting Republican next election.

    A great gain for the party. So many poor People do need live in fear now. Soon they may have to find jobs to support themselfs. That is cause for fear in them! But as they have said gutting chickens hurts my hands. Stoopen down hurts my back. So here is were to send my check.

  • Betsy Raus

    Well if we were a democracy, your glib comments would be relevant. We are not a democracy. We are a Republic. The law reigns supreme, and our election is fashioned after the original Constitution – as the House would vote. Electors are elected to vote on our behalf. The states are weighted by electors. They are expected to vote as representative of their state. So go back to the books and figure it out. We are a Republic.

    • The US has NEVER been a Democracy. But it’s too bad that we are no longer a Republic – the Republic died decades ago. The Patriot Act was just the LAST nail in the Constitution’s coffin – the US Constitution is a “dead letter” given “lip service” but totally ignored by the government whenever it’s convenient. We are now (and have been so for some time) an Oligarchy (indeed a Plutocracy at that). Just remember that both the rulers and the inhabitants of the Roman Empire called the country that they lived in “the Roman Republic” right up until the end. They NEVER EVER called themselves “the Roman Empire” – Like the term “Byzantine Empire”, it is an invention created by historians centuries after its demise. Perhaps centuries from now historians shall declare that FDR was the first Emperor of the American Empire. We can no more restore the Republic than the Romans could – especially since most Americans (like the Romans) don’t believe that it’s gone!

        You might want to tell people that you got that info (correct me if I’m wrong) from Edward Gibbon’s “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire”. Even though it is still considered the last word on that subject by historians, most people still look at easier and more recent histories.

        • You’re right – thanks. Most people want everything “handed to them on a silver platter”. And if they have to do any actual research, they want it to be easy and entertaining. Basically, they want other people to think for them and our elites are happy to oblige.

  • I wrote NO CONFIDENCE across the entire ballot, back and front, and then put it in a drawer because I did not want to waste money on postage.
    I DO NOT AND WILL NOT GIVE MY CONSENT…TO ANY OF THIS EVIL.

  • Many people are simply apathetic and don’t care. But could it also be that many, if not most, of those who don’t vote are simply tired of electing people who promptly break all of the promises that they made to get elected? Could it be that they don’t want to legitimize a corrupt unconstitutional government by participating in its farce? Naaahhh….

  • Jeorg Adams

    Pointless exercise. Voting is just a smoke screen to make you think you have a choice. Voter fraud every where. I know because supposedly I voted but I didn’t.
    Tired of being told WHAT my choice is. Done being told I have to pay for other people that are too lazy to work. Tired of hearing US politicians proclaiming they want democracy for the world when the US is NOT a democracy. The US is a republic by presentation and an oligarchy in fact. When my vote really counts…I’ll play. Won’t hold my breath!
