The “Right to Vote”

Is there any such thing as “the right to v*te”? Can there be any such thing? Or is it just a figment of the imagination?

In the past week or so I sure saw a lot of people talking about this supposed “right”.

There is no such thing as a right to govern other people. Any act of governing others is archation— it violates their natural human rights in several ways. No one can have the right to archate.

To v*te is to endorse using political violence, through government and its “laws”, against others. Do you really have a right to do that?

Sure, it is possible you might only be endorsing using political violence against those who are endorsing the use of political violence against you— in self-defense. And some people might think it’s preferable to use defensive political violence instead of using defensive violence of other kinds, such as shooting those who are threatening you in a credible way.

But is it really better? I’m not sure. I’m not even so sure it ever works, in the long-run.

I sympathize with the claim of defensive v*ting, even if I don’t completely buy it.

I won’t condemn anyone who feels the need to v*te. Even though it sure seems like an endorsement of the “system” and a pledge to go along with whatever results from the election. After all, democracy, like all politics, is “winner take all”; “win/lose”. It’s “American Roulette”. Why play a rigged game you can’t win, even if you believe you have the right to do so?
