(There was one election here a few years ago in which there was only one measure on the ballot and I had not been able to make up my mind as to whether or not I supported it. I showed up at the polling place and cast a blank ballot. It didn’t make much sense to most people, but I felt that it was necessary for me to do my bit in the electoral process.)
Ye, but what is the point of casting an uninformed vote. That is the same like not voting at all.
I would add that in voting for a pro-life government that has other flaws in it, you are not voting for that government as much as you are trying to prevent the other government from taking power.
So you would vote for a pro-life government about which you though that would rule in a corrupt way? I’m going to give you an example - a hypothetical situation. Let’s say that in some country you would have to choose between Bush (pro-life) and someone else (pro-choice). I can’t even think of the possibility of me having to vote for Bush.
The anti-life government is “just worse” because it is not pro-life. There are no other reasons.
So a “pro-life Hitler” would always be better than any pro-choice government?
not to vote is to waste the blood of our soldiers who died to protect your freedoms.
How? Especially when we are talking about freedom to choose not to vote?
If there’s not a good candidate, then write somebody in! Your write-in might not stand a chance but your vote still counts.
Right, but what if there are two main pro-choice party and I really support one of them (because I think it would be better for my country and people) but believe that the other one is corrupted. Should I not try to help the country instead wasting my vote on a candidate that has no chances of winning?
Thank you for answers, God with you all!
