You really are naive if you think voting is going to change anything.

Even non voters can benefit from democracy.........


See how powerful is democracy?
I've made my living, Mr. Thompson, in large part as a gambler. Some days I make twenty bets, some days I make none. There are weeks, sometimes months, in fact, when I don't make any bet at all because ...

This is one of the most stupid comments you've made in the last few days.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

If any country wants to lead a moral value system must do it properly and must first get it's own house in order. There are not many Gov't in the world that have done this throughout history but if anyone thinks China has the "moral" authority to dictate to the world and others a moral code and value system then they are wrong. The world knows about China and it's fake markets and overly corrupt local and federal government officials.How can the blind lead? What words would they choose to suggest they can lead? Public face and private image are two opposing value systems and China has that going for it in spades.....what would they lead with? The public face that is not truthful or the private face which is the truth and with this face China couldn't lead a pack of school girls in search of high moral value because ALL the systems that the school girls were raised in are corrupt themselves. A system that leads by dictatorship cannot lead within their own country let alone lead the world. There are no large countries today who can lead the world into anything but more negativeness.....look around you.
And what's wrong with having dark skin?

No it isn't actually.....many non voters benefit from not voting simply by claiming one of the social benefits that were hard won through an election by the party that promised, won  and delivered. Democrats who brought in "women's maternity benefits" and a woman who never voted claims these benefits when she is working becomes pregnant and collects. That is one example...there are tons more.

Congratulations. You have been successfully brainwashed.
You actually believe that elections in the west are meaningful.

""The world knows about China and it's fake markets and overly corrupt local and federal government officials.""

I guess you haven't heard of the biggest fake market in the world. The US federal reserve system.
The obscenely rich of the west own that and thus own the USA.
Just how naive are you?
