here's one i was working on some time ago about voting, and hope it provides some evidence to ponder upon in the coming days;

“I have solved this political dilemma in a very direct way: I don’t vote. On Election Day, I stay home. I firmly believe that if you vote, you have no right to complain. Now, some people like to twist that around. They say, “If you don’t vote, you have no right to complain”, but where’s the logic in that? If you vote, and you elect dishonest, incompetent politicians, and they get into office and screw everything up, you are responsible for what they have done. You voted them in. You caused the problem. You have no right to complain.” George Carlin

Our First Amendment prohibits Congress and “our government”, from violating the right that Chinese go to jail for; freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and the right to petition government about grievances.

Our American ancestors wrote the first amendment because they knew that “our government” would attract politicians and bureaucrats who had the same attitude that guides Communist officials in China otherwise, there would have been no reason for the First Amendment.

It’s easy to look down your nose at China, but the situation there isn’t much different in America. We have an enormous welfare-warfare racket that enables the federal bureaucracy to get its hands on trillions from the private sector. The Chinese Communist Party, American officials and everyone else on the federal dole fight to ensure that nothing interrupts the flow into their money bin.

Republicans and Democrats like to pretend that they’re different from the Communist Party because, they say, people have a choice when they go to the polls. The choice is false. In most political races, there are no important differences between the candidates. They both believe in the corporate, welfare-state, warfare-state way of life and oppose any dismantling or repeal of welfare-warfare functions of the federal government. Their arguments are always over how the welfare-warfare state should be rearranged, not whether it should be dismantled.

For all practical purposes, “our government” is run by one party, which is divided into two wings. They take turns in various offices but for all practical purposes, they’ve cartel control over the system. Meanwhile, the vast army of federal bureaucrats and people who receive federal dole remains permanent.
Have you ever wondered why third Party candidates gather signatures to run for public office? It’s to impose enormous requirements to make it difficult and expensive for them to compete against the monopoly while, at the same time, maintain the pretense of a competitive system.

The risk “our government” faces that Chinese officials don’t is that there’s still some free speech about liberty in America, which has the potential for inspiring Americans to demand a dismantling, not a reform, of the corporate, welfare-warfare racket. The First Amendment prohibits government from punishing freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and petitioning for redress of grievances.

To reduce that risk, “our government” convinces people that their corporate welfare-warfare racket represents “freedom” and is in their best interests.  This process starts in the first grade, indoctrinating children with the notion that America’s society based on a welfare state and warfare state represents freedom. By the time they graduate high school, the programming has been successfully completed for most people. The victims honestly believe they’re free and even express thanks to the warfare-state government for protecting their “freedom.”

They scare “consumers” into believing that the corporate welfare-warfare state is necessary for their survival and well-being. Without the welfare state, you’re told, there would be people dying in the streets. Without the drug war, everyone would quit working and just smoke weed, snort cocaine, and shoot heroin all day. Without the warfare state, America would quickly be taken over by the communists, terrorists, drug dealers, and illegal aliens. All this time Americans are told corporate freedom to do anything they wish is required for “jobs”.

When government critics speak many “consumers” act as though someone has criticized their parents. Government defenders run to the State’s defense and frequently slander the critics. Mainstream media outlets continue to lie and distort information, propagandize on behalf of corrupt politicians, banksters and military leaders.  “Journalists” have a gullible, naive blind faith in their “leaders” despite the ruin such leaders have caused.

Americans are so controlled by government, at all levels, they can’t move without bumping into it, sometimes with disastrous consequences. From taxes, to permits and licenses for everything and to never-ending laws and ordinances that regulate your money, your land, your food, your water, your air, your energy, your guns, your children, your children’s education and your health care. The difference is if you live in China, you know you’re not free. American’s are told by “officials” that this is the land of the free, the brave and our constitution guarantees freedom.

Your government is running up a debt so large that it may never be paid back and will saddle generations to come with crushing taxes. That government is threatening American sovereignty by asking foreign countries, that don’t much like us and will hurt us when they can, to lend us money.

The scandals are immigration, bank and corporate bailouts and crony capitalism where government rewards its friends with your money and punishes its enemies with regulations. Government is infected with the incurable diseases of waste, fraud, abuse and corruption, massive programs that don't work and two political parties that champion their differences but in the end, they all bow to the will of the lobbyists.

When power rests in the hands of the governed, there’s freedom. When power rests in the hands of government, there’s slavery. Whatever power the governed had under our fading Republic and was intended by the framers, is fast slipping away into ignorance, apathy, greed and dependency.

Voting legitimizes all the excess and sociopathic tendencies of “our government” and ignores the practice of authorizing the tax man at all levels coming into your house and stealing 35 percent of their resources on a monthly basis and if you resist in any way, you get a boot on the neck and maybe a surcharge for daring to question or resist the thief and his army.  Government is a highwayman and the voter is the waylaid traveler who appears to smile happily at having a gun put to his head and his pockets emptied.  He then proudly wears the sticker on his jacket that reads: “I was robbed and I voted for it!” A mass exodus from the voting cesspool may get interesting responses from the elected sociopaths. Withdraw your support of a sick and twisted system and stop rubber-stamping the violence against your community.
