Kenji Gerhardt Posted almost 3 years ago why does the government have all the power and the people have none Cynical and incomplete. In order for a society to function civilly, action must be taken in a civil manner. Voting is currently the best facilitator of civil actions humans possess. While I agree that the current system in the U.S. is flawed in many regards and needs change, complete revolution is unnecessary, unintelligent, and unlikely to succeed. Some laws are flawed. The best way to deal with those laws is not to break them, but rather to support coalition and activism against that law. In other words, vote.
