please do not move this topic to endless debate .... the subject properly warns people what will be contained within .... if you love politics ... then go to the corner of our forum where we put up with such nonsense.

There are not that many places where we can discuss principled noncooperation with the US government political system .... especially with my friends.

Ok... the reason I moved it was because it started off with that discussion then it seemed to turn to endless bitchin' and whinin'... your forum you can have it you way and I can ignore this thread.

Voting is force, but that only restricts pacifists - not anarchists - from using it.  If it is used for defensive purposes, then it is fully legitimate force, and not a violation of the ZAP.

I disagree.  Electoral voting is aggressive force.  While the simple act of pulling a lever or pushing a button in the voting booth does not constitute violence, the result of the act most certainly does.  When a person votes to elect another to a position of power, he or she is accomplice to every crime of the elected other.  For instance, many of the political types intend to vote for Ron Paul in one year's time.  Although Ron Paul will probably commit far fewer crimes than the other contenders, some innocents will assuredly suffer by his hand or those of his administration.  Your vote makes possible the commission of these crimes and ensures they continue in perpetuity.

Carl Watner makes the same argument in this article, titled "Is Voting an Act of Violence?": http://users.aol.com/vlntryst/wn103.html

Ah, well.  If he's 19, then there is no point in my watching this thread.  19 year olds tend to be full of passion, but nothing productive comes from engaging them in debate; its all just pizza-and-beer talk.

I doubt that one year would make much difference, but I am actually twenty.  More to the point, please don't categorize me because of my age, you old fart; I don't eat pizza and I don't drink beer. :)

I'm listening to Dale on the FTL podcast. He is presenting a great argument and yes, it is quite an argument...

I think finding out what people are doing once they move to NH is a very helpful.

Russell ... I really don't understand the split very much. Never have. I enjoy the ideas on both ends of the spectrum and have never really latched on to either ideal with any amount of zeal other than wanting to be involved and lending what talent I do have to the causes.

There are too many good things happening and events to get involved in. To try and influence the dynamics of such a diverse group and even suggest that everyone move in a particular direction is ... to put it as mild as I can ... ludicrous.

Theorizing can be fun... action is more fun... seeing results of action is a veritable Festivus.

Speaking of Festivus...  :icon_pirat:

Yea, Russell, Mark says arguments make for great radio....

I agree it is great to hear about everyone's ideas and actions here in NH. The only direction I would suggest is a peaceful one and hell, I might even suggest -- what ever you do try to enjoy doing it....
