20302, You gotta take that up with george

I dont see how any other reasoning posed extends beyond being ideological. You claim that voting helps things from getting worse and thats a nice idea but its certainly not true in practice- things continue to get worse (crack).

as for clean hands- paying taxes has nothing to do with this- we're talking about the idea of complaining about the government and voting. Carlin disputes the idea that those who dont vote dont have the right to complain. His logic is pretty sound.

He's not taking the ideological stance he's taking a logical one- the ideological stance is concluded in the fact that any american has the right to complain whether he votes or not.
