    You cannot complain about the "system" while not taking a part in it. What does non voting do exactly? You are saying that you do not wish to be represented. Well if you are not willing to vote then you cannot complain that you are not represented. DEMOCRACY = PARTICIPATION. 1 vote = 1 voice.

    I know that Italy is a republic but I know how corrupt a multi-party system gets and it makes me nervous thinking about going down that road. A three-party system is okay but that easily turns into more and then it becomes who can strongman, buy out and hide behind the most candidates.

    Only 40-60% of voters actually turn out to vote and that doesn't bother politicians at all. Non-voters simply don't matter to them. The only way that non-voting will ever matter is if most, like 90% don't vote.

    I only recently turned eighteen. Am I afraid to vote? Yeah, I'm scared I won't know enough about the issues or the candidates. Am I going to vote anyway? Absolutely.
    Why? Because using the rights I've been given is an expression of my integrity. Even if my vote is only a drop of clean water in the politically corrupt bucket, I'll know I had the integrity to add that drop.
    In the case of presidential elections (because that's the only kind people seem to talk about, even though it's only one of many in America at many different levels), I'm going to research all available parties, not just conspiracy theorist Republicans and crazy sjw Democrats. And if I don't like any of the options, I'll use my grandmother's tactic: write in a name of someone I'd actually support as president, like an ancestor or a prophet or a past president. There are more colors in the rainbow than just red and blue!

    I have yet to hear 1 good reason NOT to vote. Even if you dont feel like it does anything, the benefits for the chance that it DOES do something far outweigh the cons of if it doesn't do anything. If you dont agree with the system (which I get, I think the system is horrible) how is abstaining a vote going to change anything?

    My friend is non voter and I can't even talk with her about politics... also because she doesn't like the topic that much...but also I don't want to hear her complaining about stuff.
    Because I believe the only ones who can complain are those who vote. You vote for someone you believe could change things for better and if they don't do stuff what they promised I think that it is my right as a voter to complain about a certain situation in my country.
    If you can vote I think you should do it... people who don't have that right , that is a completely other situation and I can't say anything against people like this.

    When some people stop to vote it degrades rights for everyone. Voting takes WORK and I will admit I myself have not always done the work necessary. It starts locally. People used to have so much more local power with their votes in the US but people stopped paying attention. They started making it harder to know when votes were happening or meetings were happening and people STOPPED paying attention. US voters could have put a stop to walmart with their votes. They had that much control at one point in time but they didn't. It was deemed too much work and politicians took note of that. So they do what they can to exhaust people, to make things seem impossible, to make it seem to hard and difficult. They intentionally make you feel your vote doesn't matter with the presidency. It is designed that way so when city managers are appointed you don't say "oh, I didn't vote for that". When that appointed city manager appoints other officials in charge of zoning or water no one stops to ask "wait, did I ask for this?". Then when those appointed people make choices that hurt the local economy such as starting a long consruction job where they block off small businesses for months on end and the new walmart in town has easy access no one blinks a lash. They just start shopping at walmart. This is how they changed our economy. They slowly infiltrate places they think you will not pay attention and work against you. And you have every power to stop it. There are people who are actively seeking to legally take your rights away because it's far easier to steal from the calf when it's asleep than when it's wide awake. They have attacked your working rights to the point even when our economy is booming it is an employer market. People need to wake up and pay attention.

    We should have a three/four party system. It should be whoever gets the least amount of electoral votes should be dropped, and do this until one candidate gets a majority of the electoral votes.

  • firewolf7000
    firewolf7000 25 days ago +1

    Does no one get the point of the third party? It has had a significant impact in America since our government is based on majority votes not who has the most. The third party can prevent one of the two parties from gaining a majority when it is neck and neck. This forces the two parties to adopt and discuss the concerns of the third party. It has been a while since I was in government, but it seems people don't understand what makes our voting system great. It's not a true democracy as many of our founding fathers were against, but a republic.

    Lesser evilism as an argument for voting is one of the many things wrong with politics and in the long term means a fundamentally unstable political system that can implode easily under the right conditions. If there's no one you want to vote for, don't vote. That in itself is sending a message and you have every right to complain and state your opinion, even if it's unpopular.

    My professor stressed the importance of young people voting. He gave us a great example of why voting is important. His example was about a bill being passed in the state of Louisiana (where we live) and this bill would force out elderly people from government funded nursing homes. The bill was killed in 3 days because THE OLD PEOPLE VOTE. The elderly vote no matter what (usually) and the governor of our state knew he would lose those 30,000 plus votes. But when it comes to rising prices in college and less government money for students, nothing will change because young people tend to not vote. The government is not scared if you have no impact on them. So please vote!

    I originally come from Switzerland, now live in the UK. Swiss citizens are asked to vote on any topic (could be immigration reform or adding an extra week of holiday) 4 times a year, and we have 11 parties represented in parliament. Any citizen can create a new law that, if it gathers enough signatures, will be put to the vote. Coming from that background, I believe in voting 100% percent. I am extremely proud of this system, which gives a voice to every single one of us on any piece of legislation.
    However, I do understand the disillusion Americans and British people can feel with their voting system. Both systems are similar in the sense that your vote will only count in either your state or constituency, and there are only two parties that really matter. The American parties baffle me by how wide their ideological range is. I think it is time to split both parties. Have Trump and friends create a new far right party, and Bernie, Warren and others create a socialist party. And some high profile Democrats could join the Greens as well to raise their profile a bit. This would help people vote for parties that are closer to their beliefs. But for this to work, BOTH parties have to do it, or we'll end up with the same problem as in the UK, where the left is fragmented into a few smaller parties, but not the right, which seems to gives it a bit of an advantage. And that's not democracy either.

    I didn’t vote in the last election because I realized that our system is set up in a way that makes it near impossible for third parties or independents to win.
    If too many people vote libertarian, democrats win, and if too many people vote green, republicans win. This is why people vote for lesser of two evils. Because if you don’t, it splits the vote and lets the greater evil win.
    Even the beloved Teddy Roosevelt couldn’t beat the system. When he ran third party, he took so many votes from Taft that the democrats won in a landslide, despite being less popular.
    There are voting systems that take care of this problem (google alternative vote), but republicans and democrats aren’t going to be too keen on overhauling the system that’s kept them in power for the last 150 years straight.
    The vast majority of Americans didn’t vote for Donald Trump. Same for Clinton. Both were wildly unpopular candidates and one of them won. That should tell us something is wrong with our elections.
    Only 55% of Americans identify as republican or democrat, but nearly every member of congress belongs to these parties. For the many of us who don’t belong to one of the two major parties, voting largely excludes us.
    Also, only parties that get a certain percentage of the vote in one election receive government funding for the next one, meaning that our tax dollars are going toward making sure the major parties begin with a leg up on us.

    The idea of not even trying, by not voting, defeats the whole point of democracy and doesn’t really hold up as a logical argument.
    You have a fundamental right that you’re not using if you don’t vote, even if you don’t believe in the system you’re vote is going toward the point of voting is to use your influence is to help make the system better, and changing it so your vote does count.

    A 2 party system might not be ideal, but if we had 200 parties and one of them won with 20 electoral college votes, then we would only satisfy 1 percent of the population. The rest of America would then vote against all of their legislation and therefore we could never move forward. A two party system allows for almost half the country to be somewhat satisfied.

      It's called a proportional voting system. America has a majority voting system, which in most cases leads to a two party system. We just learned that in Uni. In Germany we have a proportional Voting system. That means all the parties in the parliament have a saying, depending on how much votes they got. But the biggest party puts the chancellor in place. There are more details I wont get into. To Prevent hundreds of parties in the parliament, a party needs to reach 5% to get into the parliament. I think we have 7 rn.

      Not really because all it does is force people into parties they don't agree with. Most people are moderate/centrist but they are forced into the two party system, so they are forced to take the extreme of each other's views. You believe in gun rights and want drugs legalized? Too bad. You have to pick one or the other (because of the two party system).
