  • I'd like for a majority of people to discover they have no right to rule others, either, and join me.

    First you'd have to throw out the Constitution. Good luck with that.

    Elections are never won by true majorities since that many people rarely vote. I think every registered voter who doesn't show up ought to count as a "no" or "none of the above" vote, to make it obvious.

    Except that's not logical. Our system has never been based on the notion that a majority of citizens should support something, only that a majority of voters should. Again: you'd have to throw out the Constitution.

    So, since I'm still voting, can I still protest when the government does some that's wrong whether I voted for it or not?

    You can protest. Just don't expect me to care unless you actually do something. Because that is what is required. You can expect to be a slave if you don't actively protect your rights.
