Huh

I wonder at what point it will occur to people that, in the statistical sense, their vote really, truly, literally, actually, is completely irrelevant.

It puts things in perspective.

    People are very good at denying the implications of obvious math and of realities right in front of their faces.

    The function of the lottery is to provide an income to the lottery, taken from the person who buys a ticket. It is not to provide an income to the person who buys a ticket from the lottery.

    And the function of democratic elections is not to give the voter a means to influence the liberal governing consensus. It is to give the governing liberal consensus a means to influence the voter.

    • It was mostly a thought from all of the “Your vote matters!” stuff showing up everywhere. Every time I see those videos it occurs to me that your vote alone is almost guaranteed to have zero impact on what happens in the election. Not voting is really not a big deal.

    I think one of the reasons people preach the idea that your vote still matters is because they want people to vote so that they could achieve a desired result faster due to motivation.

    This guilds for both the Trump camp and Clinton camp.

    This applies to the Sacraments, too. We do them not because what they do to God, Who is unchangeable, but because of what they do to us.
