Based on our history, that is almost certain to happen again on Tuesday.
Anyone Who Says Your Vote Doesn't Matter Is A Fucking Liar
Hey, you know who is going to vote? Old people. Rich people. People who are scared of change. They'll do it because they actually convert their fear into action. They'll do it because they know, through a long string of successes, that voting is how you seize power.
They do not have the cool, detached cynicism of "My vote doesn't matter anyway." They aren't burdened with the youthful, naive ignorance that disguises itself as jaded cynicism, that bullshit thing we do where we dress up inaction as rebellion, in the form of ...
"Both parties are the same."
... or ....
"Nothing ever changes anyway."
... or my personal favorite:
"Why bother voting when the true change won't come until there's some revolution to totally overthrow the system, which I secretly know will never happen and which I don't actually want to happen at all."
These are the kids who, if you tell them they should support companies that look out for the well-being of their employees and the environment, will say, "There is no ethical consumption under capitalism." Which sounds very noble until you realize that they put this into action by not spending one second worrying about where they spend their money (since it's all equally corrupt, see). Hey, isn't that the exact same behavior as someone who doesn't give a shit about workers or the environment? Yep!
Hmmm, it's almost like this system encourages that kind of shallow cynicism, because those in power know it poses no actual threat to the status quo whatsoever. Hey, let's go yell at a politician at a restaurant. That'll do it.
