The issue that was raised is the heavy price of not voting. The point is whether you vote or not you're still in the same boat. In the situation you suggest I may have some sense of satisfaction when David Duke doesnt get elected but i still live in a community where a lot of people voted for him. Whats the difference if I do vote and david Duke still wins?

so then how is a non voter under its whim any moreso than you- they arent compelled to do the things you suggested?
