People have been making posts talking about how voting is bad and it does not make a difference. They point out the bad things that have not changed and say "see the vote did nothing." The thing is these people don't every point out the good things that voting does.
Voting does not stop government corruption, it does not stop taxes, and it does not stop individuals in the government from trying to take more power. What it DOES do is limit what government can do or how much power an individual can have in the government. Congress talked about passing a bill that would restrict internet freedom. It seemed sure to pass but then millions of Americans complained about it. They sent angry emails complaining about it.
Not only did the bill not pass they threw it out all together. Congress did this because they were afraid of getting voted out of office. That is an example of the power of the vote. In fact if the people did this more often then the government would have alot less power.
Our founding fathers realized that they would not stop government corruption or change human nature. That why they created a government of checks and balances. This makes it so no one group can get full power. The vote is part of that regulation and check and balances. Get ride of the vote you get ride of the checks and balance. Get ride of the checks and balances and you get a more tyrannical system. You loss very ability to complain about the government.
That's why I say the vote is not just our right it is our duty.
