Here is a thought from The Post-Standard, “The Reader’s Page” of August 19th.
Dissatisfied with pols? How about not voting? To the Editor: I would like to give a view- point on why people should stop voting in America. When people are not satis- fied with their wages, they strike. When America does not like what another country is doing, we boycott. But when Americans are disgruntled with the way things are, we are told to come out and vote. The wealthy control the pol- iticians. They donate money to back the guy who will work in their best interests, not all of our best interests. Both parties play a game with the public, and the public falls for it. As the American people re- alize that it is both parties and all of politics, more and more people will stop voting! Alexander J. Russo Syracuse
I agree, I need to unregister to vote. We need to remove the illusion of consent to this corrupt system. Long gone are the days of a government of the People.
