1. My state is covered with those black box voting machines

 

That are easily manipulated to wipe out the true count. I seriously doubt that my liberal vote is ever counted and frequently feel that voting is a useless gesture.

Sometimes I think that if I vote, I am participating in a rigged and corrupted process that gains legitimacy every time I show up to pretend vote. And sometimes I think that if I don't show up then my vote will never get counted.
