Alex R. Knight III at Strike the Root - Why Mr. Knight does not, and will never, vote. [root]

I have a very hard time believing that grown adults, quite able to grasp the concepts I laid before them, do not understand what they are intentionally doing by being so foolish, shortsighted, self-degrading, and destructive as to continue voting in political elections. I also find it sad and utterly loathsome that those who vote, whether they recognize it or not, are nothing short of beggars with little or no self-respect. Voting is buying into a con-game. It is seeking permission to be given freedom -- something voting and government will never and cannot by its very intrinsic nature give you even if those running it wanted to, which I assure you they don't and never will. Voting is a tacit endorsement of inflicting theft and violence not only upon one's self, but upon the rest of society and humanity in general. It is a callous disregard of life, liberty, and property. It is one of the most destructive activities imaginable, tantamount to robbery and murder.

Alex is absolutely right. Voting in government elections is delegated coercion.
