This is a childish, unrealistic, unanalytical view of the topic. One vote does NOT count. Whether one prefaces that statement with "wah wah wah" or not does not make it any less true. Look at the numbers. It's an immutable fact.chris wrote:The problem as I see it is that people are too goddamn self-centered. "Oh wah wah wah, I'm only one guy, and my vote doesn't count". The problem is that nearly half of the country believes this, so something like 100 million votes do NOT get cast. A single vote may not make a difference, but 100 million sure as hell do. THINK ABOUT THE BIGGER PICTURE PEOPLE.
Yes, and if a frog had wings, it wouldn't bump its ass a-hoppin', Chris. "If 600 more people" had done it, then yes, it might have changed things. My statement wasn't that "600 votes don't count". 600 votes are statistically significant. ONE vote is not.I'm sure there were far more than 600 people in Florida who would have voted for Gore had they gotten off their asses and actually done it. Had they not convinced themselves that "Gore will win anyway, so I don't need to vote", the country would be spiraling downhill like it is under Dubya's "leadership".
It's such a simple concept, and one that so many people, with great jingoistic fervor, refuse to understand.
