The voters don't have any influence

That is what a friend of mine said last summer and I have been trying ever since to come up with a reason what she is wrong and coming up short.

It is simply incredible to me that with a Dem president and Dem Senate we are going to spend the next several months defending social security.

And how is it possible that Obama is considering hiring someone from JP morgan Chase as his Chief of Staff???? If the voters had any influence at all no one would even mention such a thing.

a mob family running the world. It actually now is a new world order. A few billionaires who no longer even make an attempt at caring about their place of birth control the world. We have absolutely no influence. But we don't have to take it lying down either.

Your friend is right. Voters have no influence.

Expect voter turnout to diminish steadily in the coming years.

With only a choice between bad guys and bad guys people will drop out and the only people going out to vote will be people who want the bad guys.

A real democracy killer.

2008 could be considered a watershed election. The ultimate pretender, the big scam won the White House and now we know for sure that voters have no influence.

From here on diminishing participation.

That is why lets's work with Nancy Bordier is so interesting.

How can we create an electoral system that can't be gamed or rigged or stolen, as both legacy parties have been doing since 2000, at least?
