Gandhi Style Revolution

You want a real Gandhi Style revolution? Stop participating in the Democracy that enslaves you!



Think about it even the democracy is an illusion. We are lucky if 40% vote nationwide and it is even less in most states. So really 15-20% are electing an oligarchy to tell the rest of us what to do.

So if we just stop all they have left is their enforcers and we expose them for what they really are; nothing but a totalitarian regime forcing us to thier will, stealing our wealth, taxing us to death, poisoning us, jailing us, sending our sons and daughters off to fight undeclared wars for corporate interests, and even murdering us if they feel like it.

Why don't we do what Gandhi did and just stop participating?

Up until th 1896 turnout was 80-90%

Murray Rothbard said that their were political changes at the time that reduced turnout and its been going down since.


"The Transformation of 1896 and the death of the third party system meant the end of America’s great laissez-faire, hard-money libertarian party. The Democratic Party was no longer the party of Jefferson, Jackson, and Cleveland. With no further political embodiment for laissez-faire in existence, and with both parties offering “an echo not a choice,” public interest in politics steadily declined.

A power vacuum was left in American politics for the new corporate statist ideology of progressivism, which swept both parties (and created a short-lived Progressive Party) in America After 1900. The Progressive Era of 1900–1918 fastened a welfare-warfare state on America which has set the mold for the rest of the twentieth century. Statism arrived after 1900 not because of inflation or deflation, but because a unique set of conditions had destroyed the Democrats as a laissez-faire party and left a power vacuum for the triumph of the new ideology of compulsory cartelization through a partnership of big government, business, unions, technocrats, and intellectuals."

An odd thought...

We could try restoring the Republic.

Or we could take Ghandi's approach... he advocated non-violence and was assassinated for his troubles.

How'd that work out for him?

Or India, for that matter. Last time I was there it was still a hellhole.

Ignoring the problem is not going to make it go away... whether you believe it is an illusion or not.

Restoring the republic

Restoring the republic involves not participating in the democracy.

That's your viewpoint.

Have fun changing the rules of the game while not participating in it.

What message does it sent?

The winners always assume that you would have voted for them.

The message it sends if you

The message it sends if you keep voting is that the democracy is legitimate! We are supposed to be a republic and all the stuff everyone "assumes" politicians have authority over they do not!

Where do they get authority to regulate every aspect of your life? They get it from you failing to say no and playing in their perverted democracy as if it is legitimate.

By participating you continue to perpetuate your own demise for democracy always ends in disaster. You cannot use democracy to vote your rights back in.

Democracy has led us exactly to where we are, it is the problem!

I don't vote for my rights, they are already mine.

Octobox and Lew Rockwell agree with you.

So if three of you believe the message being sent is that government is illegitimate,

While 535 Congressmen believe that non voters support them.

Is anyone getting the message?

This begins at the local level

Real change never comes from Washington or a National top down approach.

You have to find a way to appeal to people locally with your idea.

Start at the county level.
