To me voting is putting your faith in someone else's proposals and attempting to make them enforceable on everybody else. Yes we live in a democracy where the majority rules, but that still has ample strength to create divisions and separate us further. To vote is to select a master.

No, a vote is to have a say who your master is!

But you aren't saying anything, you pull a lever or something-I don't know because I don't vote.

If you vote, I think you give yourself the right to criticise whoever is elected.

You are picking the people who make the decisions.

Potentially the wrong decisions too.

There is no right, if you vote for someone who doesn't do a good job you are partially responsible for the mess they created that a non-voter like me had nothing to do with. Maybe I don't get to say and my opinion on politics is irrelevant if I don't vote, but for those who do vote and their master decides to change or alter policies that were the reason you voted them in in the first place-well aren't you in a pickling dilemma then?

If you don't vote, or run for power yourself, you can't complain about the outcome.

People have different lives and work in different ways. Ok so you and many, many, many people like to work and "earn" your money, but because someone lives differently and is "lazy" doesn't mean you're any better than them. Do what works for you and that's all that matters.

Complaining isn't really what non-voters should do anyway-just sit back and laugh as all the voters squabble over what they believe to be right about an uncontrollable world.

Unless you're in the minority in which case you may as well just stay at home.

True but that's all part if living in a democratic country isn't it? The alternative is you have no say at all, with the majority scared of saying anything against the master, for fear of what the minority will do to them!
