Let me see if I have this right:
- No matter how close the vote – even if it’s less than 1,000 votes – my vote is statistically insignificant in regards to a national election. If I did not vote there would literally be no difference in outcome either way
- Though I am supporting candidate X for reasons that I think are important and not intrinsically immoral, other people who vote for candidate X are certainly voting for him because of a certain immoral position he holds – e.g., Grandma Abortion Witch is Grandma Abortion Witch, Trump supports torture, et cetera.
- These people, by voting for that person, for that reason, are doing something immoral – that is, sinning. This is true as long as they are voting for candidate X because of the immoral position he holds.
- By going out and going to the voting booth, I am a visible symbol in support of voting, meaning, I am tempting other people to vote.
- The other people I tempt to vote are quite possibly – perhaps even probably – going to do so for immoral reasons
- This means I am tempting them to sin – thus committing the sin of scandal
- Since my vote is statistically insignificant anyway (meaning whatever important position I think candidate X holds is literally irrelevant to what I do or don’t do), there is no way aforementioned important position is worth the immediate risk of committing scandal
- Thus, one should not vote
Am I missing anything?
