  •  Voting Is the Least of Democracy (4+ / 0-)

    Voting is a sacred right (and rite) but it is also the least of democracy.  The heart of democracy is what we practice every day here at duos:  debating the issues and trying to discover the way ahead that benefits as many of us as possible.  

    Yes, please, vote but don't think that by voting for a representative you have done all of your democratic duty to the polity.  Your actions and conversations with family, friends, and neighbors about public issues is where democracy truly resides.  Don't give up your power or your voice with your vote.

      It is the institution through which we set our fragile, organic freedom that arises from culture into a strong, sustainable political foundation.  In the absence of the right to vote, all other rights are ephemera that only survive so long as the most energetic sectors of society find them convenient.
