Why voting is not a viable means of course correction...
When people put themselves before all others, they are no longer capable of being part of a civilized and prudent society. When "Me-First" is their default and intractable position, you do not have a fellow citizen, you have a cancer cell swimming in the bloodstream of society. And when you have too many cancer cells...
The nurse in Maine is one example. She went to treat Ebola patients in Africa, then came home. She refuses to quarantine herself. This is not about Ebola - this is about a woman who willingly subjected herself to a potentially deadly situation (which is her choice) but then behaves in such a manner that her neighbors may suffer for her choice. Her neighbors did not choose to risk their lives with Ebola - but this woman is forcing that risk upon them with her selfish behavior.
I have no obligation to risk being exposed to Ebola (or anything else that may kill me) simply because my neighbor chooses to take those risks. Forcing me into a position where I must face those risks simply because my neighbor refuses to stay home and play monopoly for 3 weeks invokes my Natural Law Right to Self Defense.
Sorry, but I have no obligation to suffer or die just because you are stupid and selfish.
The second example is a demonstration of true Evil: "Post-Birth Abortions" are acceptable to a growing minority of people. I will not even bother to articulate how or why taking the life of a baby or child up to kindergarten age is Evil. Like porn, you know it when you see it. And if you don't see it, I can't help you.
An overwhelming majority of people in America are fouled and diseased in their hearts. You do not need to murder a 4-year-old to be Evil. You can simply choose to tolerate it in your society.
We tolerate far too much Stupid and Evil, and it is the means by which America has committed suicide.
These people vote.
That is why voting will not move our point of impact one inch, or delay it by one minute. We are outrageously outnumbered...for now.
