RE: Voting is how you put your beliefs in to action.
Oh, I see. You misunderstood my point that you shouldn’t give up on voting entirely as somehow saying that it was the only thing you could do.
If that was your point, you should have probably said that, instead of
Because not voting at all lets all involved know that they don’t have to care what you think, because you’re not going to affect them one way or another.
Which is what you actually said!
How you got “voting is the one and only form of political activity with any meaning or importance whatsoever” out of anything I said is what’s silly here.
yeah silly me, interpreting “not voting lets everyone involved [in politics] know that… you’re not going to affect them one way or another” to mean that you feel not voting means one doesn’t affect things one way or another. I really am a silly goose, reading words and connecting them like that.
Yes, I said not voting sent a message to the politicians that lets them think you don’t matter. I didn’t say voting was the only thing you could do that does matter.
Your logical leap fail is all your own.
Now, I have things to shoot in Borderlands 2. Have fun arguing on Tumblr, I guess. XD
