1. Democracy is a “religion” in every sense of the word: It deals with an unseen, mystical force (the popular will); it has a priestly class that discerns the popular will (politicians and the media); it has martyrs (soldiers), rituals (voting) and dogmas (“every vote counts”); it aims to fulfill the spiritual need of human beings to be a part of something larger than themselves; and it treats non-believers (non-voters) as heretics to be shamed and ostracized.

Here’s a novel idea: put people into power that you CAN trust instead of victimizing yourself. Because, we do have a democracy. I think some people forget that; in order for our government to function, people need to vote. Don’t forget that if you don’t take the power of vote, someone else will take it and will vote someone into power much worse than you could ever imagine. Then, who’s to blame?

The United States was, for at least a good 200 years a clearly defined republic. The founding fathers intended for their to be checks against the tyranny of the majority, what democracy inevitably leads too. Remember, lynch mobs are a pretty pure form of democracy. The constitution was designed to limit the power of the majority but the Progressive era quickly whittled away those protections.
Also to address your last point you’re more likely to die on the way to the polling place than you are to cast the deciding vote in a national election. And who’s to say that these democratically elected officials wont continue to deny rights to the minority? Voting is pointless.
