You’ve until Monday to register to vote in the 2017 General Election & you can do so here.
As far as I’m concerned if you don’t register to vote or cast a vote come June 8th then really you’ve no right to claim that you care about the future direction of this country.
I think it should be pretty damn obvious particularly to any person who’s sick or disabled, to any young person, to any pensioner, to any trans person, as to why they should be voting in this upcoming General Election, but you still hear the bullshit arguments from all manner of peeps as to why they won’t vote in any election & oh how I’m so fucking fed up (& then some!) with all the bullshit arguments
I’m not political!
Everything is fucking political!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All politicians are the same!
The most common argument I hear is all politicians are all the same or that mainstream politicians are just puppets of some giant global conspiracy. When you look across the pond at US politics, you can’t help thinking there is a grain of truth to conspiracies about all politicians are the same & just part of some giant conspiracy as both the two major parties are pretty much beholden to the same corporate interests, pretty obvious that Hilary was just much a shill for the interests of Wall Street as Donald Trump is a spokesman for big business, but I think far too many peeps seem to be getting their news from the likes of Alex Jones & Infowars, because Bernie Sanders kind of proves not all mainstream politicians are the same & likewise with Jeremy Corbyn here in Britain. What are going to tell me you reckon Jeremy Corbyn is the same as Theresa May?!?! Err what the fuck?!?!?! You must be fucking dead in the fucking head if you reckon Jeremy Corbyn is the same as Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn & Labour want to help support peeps who have disabilities whereas Theresa May wants to continue torturing peeps with disabilities, for the first time in about 30yrs there’s a very marked difference between Labour & the Tories, Labour offer socialistic hope & the Tories are offering more of the same neoliberal bollocks which is fucking up this world!
I’m an anarchist & I object to the electoral system because of blah, ideological stroppy bollocks, blah!
Do you want the Tories removed from government? I’d imagine most anarchists would? Well the only way you’re going to remove the Tories from power is voting them out! Chucking eggs, flour & custard pies at Tories though might be cathartically pleasing but direct action alone isn’t going to remove the Tories from government. Of course there are those anarchists who when they speak of direct action they’re talking of bloody revolution, in a country such as Britain its highly unlikely there would ever be a bloody revolution & certainly not in the foreseeable future, bloody revolution really isn’t part of the British political psyche & to be honest I’m grateful its not as if there were a bloody revolution in this country it would likely be instigated by fascists on the far-right then any anarchist movement on the radical left. The electoral system is far from perfect, for starters a whole section of the voice of a whole swath of the electorate has no representation due to there not being proportional representation at General Elections, but we have to work with what we have to be able to shape things as they to what they should be, so I suggest to any stroppy adolescent minded anarchist to stop daydreaming of there being an armed uprising, get out of bed & register to vote & then come June 8th vote to help remove the Tories from government.
I’m not voting because I believe god’s law not secular law
If you believe that some none existent mystical sky pilot is deciding yours & my destiny then you really need psychiatric care, I mean peeps who think they’re instructed by voice in their head which isn’t their own or think some outside entity is instructing them tend to be under psychiatric care are they not. Actually maybe in this case I should in fact be thankful that the most wackos of religious wackos don’t vote as usually god’s law trumping secular law usually involves persecuting LGBTQ peeps & considering I’m trans & lesbian…..
