Yes, but some 3rd world countries do allow voting. Like Saddam and Hugo Chavez comes to mind. Somehow, they always win.
In our country, that does not happen. We have been pretty even with Republican and Democratic Presidents. Heck before Obama, GW Bush won twice.
Has it not been a steady march to more government, more spending, more globalization, and less freedom no matter who was elected? Seems like we've had very similar choices for a while now-no bold choices just bad and not as bad. A different face gives the illusion of change though.
To me it's been like going to hell in a hand basket, and it's only a question of how fast. Go fast with Dems, and slower with Pubbies.
“The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200-years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to abundance, from abundance to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.”
Alexander Fraser Tyler, 1700
Well we have beat the average, but if we don't stop voter fraud, educate Americans on founding principles, and return to spiritual faith, I am not optimistic for the future.
That doesn't mean to give up. I'll keep fighting.
