Is it even a democracy?
If only a small percentage of individuals turn out for an election because the majority of people do not believe in the system, or if votes are shared between different parties, then how can there be a majority vote?
We vote for parties that have their own agenda's, so once in power their allegiance shifts from us to the success of the party. To further complicate things they have to go along with popular opinion to get votes or even turn to opposing opinion to have an alternative stance!
Also how could it ever be possible for a poor person to run for election and if a poor person cannot run for election does that not mean we will always have to elect rich candidates or those supported by and with allegiances to the rich?
Also I refuse to vote I will not give credibility to a system that then assumes my right to be involved with the running of my life, especially when these days politicians are completely corrupt or about as useful as break dancing on your own nuts.
So Friends, weirdos, country peeps, I ask you this.
Under logical analysis and intensive scrutiny, does modern democracy actually have any right to be called democracy.
And since I do not vote does it not mean that I in fact live in a dictatorship?
