    Yes, your vote does have more of an impact at smaller levels (cities, counties etc) BUT change goes from the bottom up. Elect local officials that support the issues you support and they will work their way up with time.

    When they say that the big rich elite are influencing the election. They aren’t saying their vote is worth a million people’s votes. All their efforts were put into getting YOU the voter, to choose their candidate. YOUR VOTE MATTERS. If voters really couldn’t do anything. Then how the hell did Trump win? If the elite were the sole deciders they would have chosen Hillary Clinton and all the corruption would be swiped under the rug.

    It’s funny how people don’t vote because “my vote doesn’t matter” just because they don’t see the direct impact. When everyone thinks they are that one person whose vote doesn’t matter, then suddenly there is a large portion of people not voting whose vote would’ve changed the outcome. Your opinion creates and waves and has the ability to convince other people of your stance. Your voice is heard and just because in the long run one vote wouldn’t matter, when millions think that then suddenly there is a group that could’ve heavily influenced the outcome.

    I don't understand how someone can consider themselves an activist, but be a non-voter & believe that their vote doesn't count.
    He says he wants to change people's minds...okay, but what is that going to do if there's no change in the system?
    People can be "woke", but all that wokeness will go to waste if we end up in a system where oppression expands and becomes normalized in THIS day and age.
    We can't change the past, but we can have a different future.

    There's power in numbers. I you don't vote then you're not standing with the people who have the same view as you. Even if you don't share all of the same views, you probably share some. I've never been completely split between candidates, which would be the only reason I wouldn't bother with voting. If almost everyone didn't vote then the few who do will control things and a small sample size will likely have a stronger deviation from the true voice of the people. Even if you're candidate loses, when they look at polling data, they can see how popular certain ideas are and this gives candidates more incentive to try to appease this crowd. It doesn't take that much time, there's really no good excuse.

    The Seminole guy is on point. I love that time of the year when its time to vote and those that vote go on their religious-like tirade as to why i should join them. I love ripping them to shreds from their lack of ability to construct a cogent argument. I noticed in these conversations that those that are really into voting for its own sake dont understand that there are multiple avenues to make economic, social and political changes to a society without voting.

    The non-voter in green has a fundamental misunderstanding of rights v privileges. The very reason our Bill of Rights are rights is because they are thought to be endowed by God and the natural existence of the human condition. One reason our forefathers included the 2nd Amendment is to ensure the people’s ability to protect these rights from tyrannical governments that feel they are the givers of said rights.

  • gnar gnar brah

    The central belief in a democracy is that the people will elect the best representative for them. When you vote, you take part in this system, meaning that you believe that the people can and will elect the best president, and that your opinion only matters as much as everyone elses. When a president is elected that you are opposed to, you then have to know that, according to the system that you take part in and believe in, that president really is the best representative.

    • JamesHLanier

    If you don't vote, it doesn't mean you are neutral, at the end of the day the percentages that parties get depend on how many people voted, so if you don't vote, parties with political views, which differ from your's will automatically get more percentages.
    The thing you have to remember is that not voting is not neutral.

  • Kathy Doe
    Kathy Doe Month ago

    This is the first debate that I’ve watched from Jubilee that I feel is completely ridiculous. If you have the right to vote and you choose not to enact on that right; then you’re basically portraying that YOU do not matter. Your reproduction rights, your wages and livelihood, your health, your marriage, your religious freedoms, your safety and your community becomes completely irrelevant. Saying “my vote doesn’t count” is a cop out; especially in America. “I don’t believe it’s a true democracy”, well ma’am; come to the eastern hemisphere where people are literally dying for basic human rights. To be able to vote in a totalitarian governments; with infinity leadership. To be able to work and provide for their family within corrupt government structures with no health care, welfare or public school systems. As a migrant who was raised in Washington, DC it’s still mind boggling how overtly privileged, yet oblivious so many Americans are.

    At a philosophical level voting does matter, it's called the prisoner's dillema. It is a contridiction to exist within a collective where you advocate for a particular moral value yet do not vote for said value, as it would be incorrect for you to *expect* others within a collective to undergo a thought process where they finalize a decision contridictory to yours (that being to vote). You can't just say you'd WANT others to save you from drowning yet wouldn't save someone if they were drowning because then if someone doesn't save you from drowning how can you say they are wrong? As paradoxical as it sounds... voting individually doesn't matter to you, yet it still matters to the collective which INCLUDES you therefore it matters to you. You do to tohers what you'd want to be done to yourself, this is at the core of Kant's philosophy. Watch acedemy kahns video on the prisoner's dillema/ nash equilibrium, it has to do with all of this.

    People choose not to vote because they understand that politics are runned by money not opinions , leaders come and go but policies stay the same , society works due to people working and contributing to society (taxes ) not bitching and shaming citezens that did nothing wrong just because they refuse to waste energy on a game that is rigged from the start.
