IPFS News Link • Voting - Election Integrity

Rock the Vote hypocrites...

•, By Francesca Chambers

Didn't vote in the last midterm elections? It turns out many of the celebrities pressuring young people to vote in tomorrow's off-year elections didn't cast a ballot last time, either.

According to the Washington Post at least five stars who participated in a recent Rock the Vote video urging youth to exercise their franchise didn't bother to show up to the polls themselves in 2010.

View co-host Whoopi Goldberg, Orange is the New Black's Natasha Lyonne, Glee's Darren Criss, Girls creator Lena Dunham and Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star E.J. Johnson did not vote in the last midterm election, the Post discovered.

Dunham admittedly voted for her 'first time' in 2012 when she cast her ballot for President Barack Obama.

Why should they vote? The importance is not in voting but in getting the sheeple to vote. The sheeple's votes make them complicit in electing those who rule over them. They have no right to complain afterwards since they had a say in determining which tyrant would rule. The actual vote total, much like the candidate who wons is irrelevant as the winner will rule the same as the loser would have. But at least you get to choose who rules . . . ain't it great?!
