Myths of Voting

Voting Examined

Voting is an act that the voters believe gives them control over some aspect of their lives. This is only true for the voters in the majority. When the voters are in the minority, those voters are being controlled by the majority.

This can be proven with an examination of any vote regarding any topic.

Choosing a Cake

If a group of people are asked to vote for either a chocolate cake or a vanilla cake, the majority group's decision controls what the minority group gets. If you absolutely hate the taste of chocolate cake and that's what the majority wants, then you eat chocolate cake or nothing.

Unlike the results of other votes, 'government' people with guns don't come and force you to eat the chocolate cake.

Local Referendum Voting

If your locality has a funding referendum to increase funding for the local schools, those with children in that school will likely vote FOR the tax increase. Those who do not want their taxes increased will likely vote AGAINST the tax increase. If, for sake of example, the voting splits along parental and non-parental lines, one of two situations will result.

Either the referendum fails and taxes are not increased with the result that the school does not get increased funding; The parents do not get what they want; More money spent on their children. Or conversely, the referendum passes and taxes are increased with the result that the school gets increased funding; The non-parents do not get what they want; They are then forced to pay more for something they don't need or use.

If the referendum passes and the non-parents refuse to pay the tax, 'government' people with guns come and make them pay or take their homes away from them.

This proves that voters want the criminals called government to rob their neighbors so that they can get the benefits of the robbery. In this case, their neighbor's money spent on their children.

Voting for a Representative

You have been taught to believe that you have a right to vote to choose a Representative. There are logical flaws and delusions in this fairy tale.

Imagine two candidates trying to get elected. Candidate A is running on an anti-Lilac platform and has promised to enact legislation making it illegal to have Lilac bushes growing in your yard. Candidate B is running on a pro-Lilac platform and has promised to oppose any anti-Lilac legislation.

If the anti-Lilac Candidate wins, then the anti-Lilac majority of voters will have representation in Congress; the pro-Lilac voters will not have any representation in Congress.

Conversely; If the pro-Lilac Candidate wins, then the pro-Lilac majority of voters will have representation and the anti-Lilac minority of voters will not.

The majority controls who is going to allegedly represent the minority.

As a matter of logic, the winning candidate can not and does not represent the losing voters. So much for No Taxation Without Representation.

Continuing the examination of voting for a Representative:

An elected Representative will write, dicker, and then vote with other Representatives regarding a new law and if 51% of the Representatives voting agree that thou shalt have no lilacs growing on your property, then that is the law and thou shalt have no lilacs growing on your property.

In legal terms, such laws are known as a malum prohibitum laws. There are many laws that are functionally the same as this hypothetical anti-Lilac law in the law books.

Any person who represents another is called an agent. The person being represented is called the principal.

The agent is required to obey the principal's wishes and protect the principal's interests. In a true principal - agent relationship, the agent can not command the principal. Also, if the agent fails to represent the principal and the principal's interests, the principal can terminate the agent's employment immediately.

Calling Congressional Legislators "Representatives" is a lie, regardless of the dictionary definitions doing just that. Newspeak anyone?

Legislators can not be immediately terminated for failing to protect any voter's interests. True representative agents can not command their principals, which is exactly what Legislators do with their laws. Laws that Legislators enact are commands.

So why call them representatives? They're not and they don't.

So therefore, why vote for them?

Voting is Majority Tyranny

Voting is where a collective of individuals perform an act that allows the majority of individuals to control the minority of individuals. Voters have somehow become convinced that it is their duty to be controlled by what the majority has chosen for them.

This is proven by observing minority voters honoring and obeying the result of the majority vote; whether it is to eat chocolate cake; pay extra taxes; or be represented by an elected Legislator who provably does not represent the minority.

Voting will always be the majority controlling the minority until people awake to the fact that none of the majority was born with innate authority over anybody else. Which means that since none of the majority has any innate authority over the minority, what the majority wishes and votes for creates no legitimate demand of any of the minority.

Voting is Not Magic

  1. All are born with equal rights.
  2. None are born with innate authority over any other.
  3. None can delegate authority they don't have.
  4. Voters were not born with innate authority over any other.
  5. Voters can not delegate authority they don't have.
  6. Voting can not magically conjure up authority over others that the voters do not have.
