Voting as it exists in the US is like the slaves on the plantation having a suggestion box.
Id have a suggestion box. Id want them well cared for, & relatively happy considering the situation. Hurting them or making them miserable is a poor investment.
I'd probably just pay them & call them employees.
I'd be terrible at owning slaves.
The difference being that politicians don't actually read the suggestions.
Only if the Democrats and Republicans are in collision, which is a stretch considering they can't agree on the time of day.
Hahaha they agree on growing the government, they're friends behind closed doors
Analogies to slavery that don't fully recognize the horrors of that institution don't do anyone justice. It undermines your argument, and degrades history. Same goes for Nazi analogies. It's just not comparable. We're probably like Russian or Iranian
citizen to a lesser degree. We have freedoms to protest and foment change. People just have to wake up first. That wouldn't be nearly so difficult if economic forces weren't encouraging our society to create mindless consumers.
When similarities exist they may be pointed out
You could run for office, get something on the ballot, or simply choose not to vote.
Forgive me for treading on your rights by suggesting this, but I think you have a higher quality of life than a plantation slave. I understand if you need to hunt me down and kill me in self defense now.
You're such a fool
I'm sorry, you're right. You clearly must be out in the fields all day, and I'm sure that you're constantly being whipped for no reason
Not doing this with you
