Voting quotes by DeForest Soaries
#1. Beyond that, states had to also have electronic voting machines that made it possible for people who are physically handicapped to vote in private ... and the computerized voting machine made it very easy for, particularly, the blind. #Quote by DeForest Soaries
Voting quotes by David Letterman
#2. I vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it. #Quote by David Letterman
Voting quotes by John Brunner
#3. Damn right I voted for him. But if I'd known then what I know now, I wouldn't have cast a vote - I'd have cast a brick. #Quote by John Brunner
Voting quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#4. No man will ever bring out of that office the reputation which carries him into it. The honeymoon would be as short in that case as in any other, and its moments of ecstasy would be ransomed by years of torment and hatred. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Voting quotes by David Foster Wallace
#5. If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don't bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don't bullshit yourself that you're not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard's vote. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Voting quotes by Sanford Levinson
#6. There is nothing wrong with someone who receives less than a majority of the vote being elected a representative. This is almost by definition the result in a system of proportional representation that elects multiple representatives from the same geographical unit and adopts voting rules that allow numerical minorities without the voting clout ever to win a race in a single-member district to elect a favorite in a multimember district. The designof multi-member institutions, like legislatures, offers many possibilities for creativity if one's desire is to maximize the number of people who feel some sense of genuine linkage with their putative "representatives. #Quote by Sanford Levinson
Voting quotes by Bill Moyers
#7. Although our interests as citizens vary, each one is an artery to the heart that pumps life through the body politic, and each is important to the health of democracy. #Quote by Bill Moyers
Voting quotes by Caroline Kennedy
#8. Sometimes it takes a while to recognize that someone has a special ability to get us to believe in ourselves, to tie that belief to our highest ideals, and to imagine that together we can do great things.
In those rare moments, when such a person comes along, we need to put aside our plans and reach for what we know is possible. #Quote by Caroline Kennedy
Voting quotes by William F. Buckley, Jr.
#9. I will not cede more power to the state. I will not willingly cede more power to anyone, not to the state, not to General Motors, not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser, resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arived at yesterday at the voting booth. That is a program of sorts, is it not? It is certainly program enough to keep conservatives busy, and Liberals at bay. And the nation free. #Quote by William F. Buckley, Jr.
Voting quotes by Lamine Pearlheart
#10. In a dictatorship, every election is faked and everybody seems to know it except for the dictator. In a democracy it is the politicians that are rigged. #Quote by Lamine Pearlheart
Voting quotes by M.C. Scott
#11. Corbulo: a name to conjure with, a name to follow into battle, wherever he led; a name to have a man marching to the gates of Rome, crying Imperator! until the crowds and the idiot senate and the corrupt wax-brains of the Praetorian Guard and every other man with voting powers in the city came to understand what we already knew: that this man should be our emperor, that Rome would thrive under his rule, in place of the fool who presently held the throne.
Corbulo, who stood before us that bright, brisk spring afternoon and watched as our centurions bawled us through our paces, and then as Cadus took charge and marched us through the display that we had been practising, if we were honest, for the last four years, just for this moment. #Quote by M.C. Scott
Voting quotes by DeForest Soaries
#12. We have no basis for having a recall of any particular type of voting equipment because there are no standards. And when we do have standards, even these standards are required to be voluntary. #Quote by DeForest Soaries
Voting quotes by Dick Morris
#13. The most pernicious of his [Obama] proposals will be the massive Make Work Pay refundable tax credit. Dressed up as a tax cut, it will be a national welfare program, guaranteeing a majority of American households an annual check to 'refund' taxes they never paid. And it will eliminate the need for about 20% of American households to pay income taxes, lifting the proportion that need not do so to a majority of the voting population. #Quote by Dick Morris
Voting quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#14. Perhaps the fact that we have seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant has made our generation understand that to choose one's government is not necessarily to secure freedom. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Voting quotes by Benjamin Graham
#15. In the short run, the market is a voting machine, but in the long run it is a weighing machine. #Quote by Benjamin Graham
Voting quotes by Penn Jillette
#16. It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people yourself is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral, self-righteous, bullying laziness. #Quote by Penn Jillette
Voting quotes by Al Capone
#17. Vote early and vote often. #Quote by Al Capone
Voting quotes by Christine Pelosi
#18. When it comes to voting rights, Democrats push voter protection while Republicans shout voter fraud in a crowded polling place. Democrats think anyone who can vote should vote; Republicans think everyone who should vote can vote. #Quote by Christine Pelosi
Voting quotes by Rick Perlstein
#19. Political scientists have long argued that party identification is the best possible predictor of voting behavior and is remarkably sticky over time. #Quote by Rick Perlstein
Voting quotes by John Hospers
#20. The tyranny of a majority can be just as cruel as the tyranny of a single dictator, depending on the degree of enlightenment or stupidity of the voting majority. #Quote by John Hospers
Voting quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#21. Among free men there can be no successful appeal from the ballot to the bullet. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Voting quotes by DeForest Soaries
#22. When public access to voting is impaired or when public confidence in voting is diluted, democracy suffers and our freedom is less secure. #Quote by DeForest Soaries
Voting quotes by Eugene V. Debs
#23. I'd rather vote for something I want and not get it than vote for something I don't want, and get it. #Quote by Eugene V. Debs
Voting quotes by Matt Blaze
#24. The tipping point for e-voting fraud, I think, will be when they realize it's cheaper to hire hackers than to buy campaign ads. #Quote by Matt Blaze
Voting quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#25. It would conduce to national progress and save a great deal of time and trouble if we cultivated the habit of never supporting the resolutions either by speaking or voting for them if we had not either the intention or the ability to carry them out. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Voting quotes by Tony Evans
#26. Every voting choice you exercise ought to be for the candidate, platform, party, or policy that will best represent the values of the kingdom of God. #Quote by Tony Evans
Voting quotes by Bryan Caplan
#27. take the opposite approach: Voters' lack of decisiveness changes everything. Voting is not a slight variation on shopping. Shoppers have incentives to be rational. Voters do not. The naive view of democracy, which paints it as a public forum for solving social problems, ignores more than a few frictions. It overlooks the big story inches beneath the surface. When voters talk about solving social problems, they primary aim is to boost their self-worth by casting off the workaday shackles of objectivity. #Quote by Bryan Caplan
Voting quotes by Michael J. Boskin
#28. New and expanded refundable tax credits would raise the fraction of taxpayers paying no income taxes to almost 50% from 38%. This is potentially the most pernicious feature of the president's budget, because it would cement a permanent voting majority with no stake in controlling the cost of general government. #Quote by Michael J. Boskin
Voting quotes by Monica Johnson
#29. Voting is a right that has been given to every American; however, as Christ followers, our votes should reflect our God. #Quote by Monica Johnson
Voting quotes by Avinash K. Dixit
#30. Steven Brams and Peter Fishburn, one a political scientist and the other an economist, argue that "approval voting" allows voters to express their true preferences without concern for electability.8 Under approval voting, each voter may vote for as many candidates as he wishes. #Quote by Avinash K. Dixit
Voting quotes by Donna Brazile
#31. Today, unfortunately, the right to vote seems to have become a partisan issue. Democrats seek to guarantee and expand voting rights. Republicans try to undermine and suppress voting rights. #Quote by Donna Brazile
Voting quotes by Marty Meehan
#32. Parts of the Voting Rights Act are due to expire next year if Congress doesn't extend them, including the section that guarantees that voting rights will be protected by the federal government. #Quote by Marty Meehan
Voting quotes by Charles R. Parsons
#33. During all these years I have been enabled to trust in the living God alone. In answer to prayer $7,500,000 have been sent to me. We have needed as much as $200,000 in one year, and it has all come when needed. No man can ever say I asked him for a penny. We have no committees, no collectors, no voting, and no endowment. All has come in answer to believing prayer. #Quote by Charles R. Parsons
Voting quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#34. Political scientists followed up on Todorov's initial research by identifying a category of voters for whom the automatic preferences of System 1 are particularly likely to play a large role. They found what they were looking for among politically uninformed voters who watch a great deal of television. As expected, the effect of facial competence on voting is about three times larger for information-poor and TV-prone voters than for others who are better informed and watch less television. Evidently, #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Voting quotes by Thomas Sowell
#35. What does calling this medical care legislation "historic" mean? It means that previous administrations gave up the idea when it became clear that the voting public did not want government control of medical care. What is "historic" is that this will be the first administration to show that it doesn't care one bit what the public wants or doesn't want. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Voting quotes by John Cornyn
#36. I can't imagine the American people voting for Hillary Clinton to serve basically the third term of Barack Obama. And I think whoever the Republican primary voters and the delegates nominate, I will support that nominee wholeheartedly against a Hillary Clinton candidacy. #Quote by John Cornyn
Voting quotes by Terri Sewell
#37. When you have incidences like the Trayvon Martin verdict, the erosion of certain fundamental rights like voting, it just reminds us that we're always one Supreme Court justice vote away from losing the progress that has been made. #Quote by Terri Sewell
Voting quotes by Malachi Martin
#38. God ... my self in the Bronx always says that God has a funny sense of humor..He has a way of treating things, he deals with each individual soul delicately, tenderly, compassionately but he deals with groups of people [country] according to certain laws and he always observes those laws and that means the innocent are punished with the evil. #Quote by Malachi Martin
Voting quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#39. Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Voting quotes by Don Cheadle
#40. We're not talking about you scored more points than me and I know that you won and I lost, those are clear results. This is about people's opinions and their subjective takes on things, people that sometimes haven't seen all of the movies they're voting on. #Quote by Don Cheadle
Voting quotes by Aberjhani
#41. When we vote we participate in the construction of a context ... #Quote by Aberjhani
Voting quotes by Jan Schakowsky
#42. Well, I was a very strong opponent of the war, in fact, one of those who went door to door to my colleagues and thus achieved 60 percent of the Democrats voting no against this war. #Quote by Jan Schakowsky
Voting quotes by Rick Perry
#43. I want people of faith on my side, not just voting on election day but by hoisting me up by getting down on your knees and lifting me up in prayer. Those who have a different view of things are already organizing ... Will you stand in the gap with those of us who believe there's a God, and a God who is strong? We can stand in the gap together and speak about issues we believe in and we will be victorious. #Quote by Rick Perry
Voting quotes by George W. Bush
#44. Look, this is a man, he's got great numbers. He talks about numbers. I'm beginning to think not only did he invent the Internet, but he invented the calculator. It's fuzzy math. It's a scaring - trying to scare people in the voting booth. Under my tax plan, that he continues to criticize, I set a third - the federal government should take no more than a third of anybody's check. #Quote by George W. Bush
Voting quotes by Tony Blair
#45. I am not sure that we would always want 16-year-olds to do all the things they can do. I am afraid that I do not agree with the hon. Gentleman on the voting age. I think that it should remain as it is. #Quote by Tony Blair
Voting quotes by Stephanie Lahart
#46. Dear Black Girls and Black Women… WE matter. Our presence matters, our voices matter, and our votes matter. Make no mistake about it… WE ARE POWERFUL. We disrupt the norm and change the system for the betterment of ALL people. #Quote by Stephanie Lahart
Voting quotes by Ari Berman
#47. The unfortunate reality is that, even today, too many citizens have reason to fear that their right to vote, their access to the ballot--and their ability to have their votes counted--is under threat." --Eric Holder, quoted in Give Us the Ballot #Quote by Ari Berman
Voting quotes by Warren G. Harding
#48. Let the black man vote when he is fit to vote; prohibit the white man voting when he is unfit to vote. #Quote by Warren G. Harding
Voting quotes by Karl Wiggins
#49. The majority of these old farts are content to crash out in a drunken stupor on the backbenches. They just want to pick up their company directorships at £200,000 a year, claim for everything they ever spend personally on expenses and make sure not to rock the boat. I have better things to do with my time than to waste it by voting a different yarn-spinning joker-in-the-pack in. Whoever's in power is not going to affect me in any way. And if you believe otherwise then you can truly nail your colours to the mast of stupidity #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Voting quotes by George Carlin
#50. Voting is a meaningless exercise. I'm not going to waste my time with it. These parties, these politicians are given to us as a way of making us feel we have freedom of choice. But we don't. Everything is done to you in this country. #Quote by George Carlin
Voting quotes by Ben Tolosa
#51. In democracy, our most important tool is to vote. But our power tool is when we have the power to influence others on who to vote for. #Quote by Ben Tolosa
Voting quotes by Ilya Somin
#52. The key difference between foot voting and ballot box voting is that foot voters don't have the same incentive to be rationally ignorant as ballot box voters do. In fact, they have strong incentives to seek out useful information. They also have much better incentives to objectively evaluate what they do learn. Unlike political fans, foot voters know they will pay a real price if they do a poor job of evaluating the information they get...
The informational advantages of foot voting over ballot box voting strengthen the case for limiting and decentralizing government. The more decentralized government is, the more issues can be decided through foot voting. It is usually much easier to vote with your feet against a local government than a state government, and much easier to do it against a state than against the federal government.
It is also usually easier to foot vote in the private sector than the public. A given region is likely to have far more private planned communities and other private sector organizations than local governments. Choosing among the former usually requires far less in the way of moving costs than choosing among the latter.
Reducing the size of government could also alleviate the problem of ignorance by making it easier for rationally ignorant voters to monitor its activities. A smaller, less complicated government is easier to keep track of. #Quote by Ilya Somin
Voting quotes by John Palfrey
#53. For many citizens, libraries are the one place where the information they need to be engaged in civic life is truly available for free, requiring nothing more than the time to walk into a branch. The reading room of a public library is the place where a daily newspaper, a weekly newsmagazine, and a documentary film are all available for free. In many communities, the library's public lecture room is the only place to hear candidates for office comparing points of view or visiting professors explaining their work on climate change, immigration or job creation. That same room is often the only place where a child from a family without a lot of money can go to see a dramatic reading or a production of a Shakespeare play. (Another of these simple realities in most communities is that a big part of public librarians job is to figure out how to host the community's homeless in a safe and fair manner.) Democracies can work only if all citizens have access to information and culture that can help them make good choices, whether at the voting booth or in other aspects of public life. #Quote by John Palfrey
Voting quotes by Kevin McCarthy
#54. I'm a conservative. I believe in the idea of freedom and liberty, but more importantly, look at my voting background. I voted against bailing out Wall Street. I voted against, never voted for, a tax increase. #Quote by Kevin McCarthy
Voting quotes by Howard Buten
#55. He is a human being in kid's clothing. He has the organs and the feeling of his species, but none of the rights. And he is not alone. This country is stewing itself in the notion that you're not a person until you reach voting and drinking age. It's wrong. You don't get it, Doctor (with all due respect), and because you don't get it you can't give it. Let him go home. He isn't crazy, he isn't even strange. We have met the enemy, and he is us. #Quote by Howard Buten
Voting quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#56. American youth attributes much more importance to arriving at driver's license age than at voting age. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Voting quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#57. There can no longer be anyone too poor to vote. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Voting quotes by John F. Kennedy
#58. For while this year it may be a Catholic against whom the finger of suspicion is pointed, in other years it has been, and may someday be again, a Jew--or a Quaker--or a Unitarian--or a Baptist. It was Virginia's harassment of Baptist preachers, for example, that helped lead to Jefferson's statute of religious freedom. Today I may be the victim- -but tomorrow it may be you--until the whole fabric of our harmonious society is ripped at a time of great national peril.

Finally, I believe in an America where religious intolerance will someday end--where all men and all churches are treated as equal--where every man has the same right to attend or not attend the church of his choice--where there is no Catholic vote, no anti-Catholic vote, no bloc voting of any kind--and where Catholics, Protestants and Jews, at both the lay and pastoral level, will refrain from those attitudes of disdain and division which have so often marred their works in the past, and promote instead the American ideal of brotherhood.

That is the kind of America in which I believe. And it represents the kind of Presidency in which I believe--a great office that must neither be humbled by making it the instrument of any one religious group nor tarnished by arbitrarily withholding its occupancy from the members of any one religious group. I believe in a President whose religious views are his own private affair, neither imposed by him upon the nation or imposed by the nation upon him as a #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Voting quotes by Howard Zinn
#59. Voting is easy and marginally useful, but it is a poor substitute for democracy, which requires direct action by concerned citizens. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Voting quotes by Birch Bayh
#60. I had the good fortune to be able to right an injustice that I thought was being heaped on young people by lowering the voting age, where you had young people that were old enough to die in Vietnam but not old enough to vote for their members of Congress that sent them there. #Quote by Birch Bayh
Voting quotes by Elijah Cummings
#61. Americans of our own time - minority and majority Americans alike - need the continued guidance that the Voting Rights Act provides. We have come a long way, but more needs to be done. #Quote by Elijah Cummings
Voting quotes by Artie Lange
#62. Women will do anything Oprah Winfrey says, and that is why we can't have women voting. #Quote by Artie Lange
Voting quotes by Dmitry Medvedev
#63. Let the people decide whom to vote for, who has more authority. And only people, only our citizens, are able to place the final emphasis, voting for this or that person or political force, or rejecting it. That's democracy. #Quote by Dmitry Medvedev
Voting quotes by Walter Millis
#64. The people have only a very vague direct power. They have the power of voting against the administration, again after its decisions have been taken; but they have no way of getting into the question of policy-making, decision-making, except insofar as the vague forces and pressures of public debate and public opinion have their impact on the President. The President still has to decide. He can't go to the people and ask them to decide for him; he has to make the decision. In that sense he was condemned to be a dictator. #Quote by Walter Millis
Voting quotes by Fouad Ajami
#65. These others
the overwhelming majority of Iraq's people
have repeatedly given every indication of valuing their newfound freedom: voting in two elections at the risk of their lives, preparing for a third, writing and ratifying a constitution granting more freedoms than exist in any country in the entire Arab Middle East. The secret is out, There is something decent unfolding in Iraq. It's unfolding in the shadow of a terrible insurgency, but a society is finding its way to constitutional politics. #Quote by Fouad Ajami
Voting quotes by Lionel Sosa
#66. Latinos have enough voting power now to decide elections, and every smart politician knows this.We can't afford to give our vote to those who alienate us, but neither to those who take us for granted. #Quote by Lionel Sosa
Voting quotes by Anne Wojcicki
#67. It's up to all of us, the consumers, to take charge of our health. It's almost like voting. It's your responsibility. #Quote by Anne Wojcicki
Voting quotes by David D. Clark
#68. We reject: kings, presidents and voting.
We believe in: rough consensus and running code. #Quote by David D. Clark
Voting quotes by Lucy Powell
#69. Indeed, when all parties campaign effectively the overall effect is to push up voting rates, as you see in tight marginal seats or close general elections. That must be good for democracy. #Quote by Lucy Powell
Voting quotes by Bob Barr
#70. Organizations worried about the potential for e-voting problems have long-advocated for audit procedures by which votes cast by e-voting machines could be verified through audit trails. #Quote by Bob Barr
Voting quotes by Cynthia Nixon
#71. When women got the vote, they did not redefine voting. When African-Americans got the right to sit at a lunch counter alongside white people, they did not redefine eating out. They were simply invited to the table. That is all we want to do; we have no desire to change marriage. We want to be entitled to not only the same privileges but the same responsibilities as straight people #Quote by Cynthia Nixon
Voting quotes by L. Frank Baum
#72. The women of the world will dominate politics, some day, and you mustn't be too old-fashioned in your notions to join the procession of progress. #Quote by L. Frank Baum
Voting quotes by Bill Maher
#73. What mostly prevents black people from voting is that drug laws send them to prison, and then they can't vote. #Quote by Bill Maher
Voting quotes by T. Rafael Cimino
#74. The greatest threats to Democracy are comfort and apathy. #Quote by T. Rafael Cimino
Voting quotes by David Cameron
#75. Strong views exist on both sides but I believe MPs voting for gay people being able to marry too, is a step forward for our country. #Quote by David Cameron
Voting quotes by John Adams
#76. Without wishing to damp the ardor of curiosity or influence the freedom of inquiry, I will hazard a prediction that, after the most industrious and impartial researchers, the longest liver of you all will find no principles, institutions or systems of education more fit in general to be transmitted to your posterity than those you have received from your ancestors. #Quote by John Adams
Voting quotes by Suzy Kassem
#77. I am not for the left or the right, but for what is right over the wrong. I am not an elephant or a donkey, but a lion that stands only with Truth and my conscience. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Voting quotes by Sarah
#78. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate ... It's time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment, #Quote by Sarah
Voting quotes by Earl Long
#79. I can make them voting machines sing Home Sweet Home. #Quote by Earl Long
Voting quotes by Avi Rubin
#80. Many of the touted advantages of electronic voting can still be achieved with paper ballots if you use a computerized ballot marking scheme. #Quote by Avi Rubin
Voting quotes by Barack Obama
#81. If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, 'We're gonna punish our enemies and we're gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,' if they don't see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it's gonna be harder and that's why I think it's so important that people focus on voting on November 2. #Quote by Barack Obama
Voting quotes by James Madison
#82. That the foundation of our national policy should be laid in private morality. If individuals be not influenced by moral principles, it is in vain to look for public virtue; it is, therefore, the duty of legislators to enforce, both by precept and example, the utility, as well as the necessity, of a strict adherence to the rules of distributive justice. #Quote by James Madison
Voting quotes by Charles M. Schulz
#83. You sold out! We elected you, and you sold out! The next time we have an election, I think everyone should vote for himself. Or we might just as well vote for Charlie Brown! Yes, next year we may even say, 'You're elected, Charlie Brown! #Quote by Charles M. Schulz
Voting quotes by Courtney Milan
#84. Don't answer, Marshall. Work it through your principles." Bradenton smiled. "But in the end, we all know how this will work out. It's one annoying girl against your entire future. Against the future of voting rights. #Quote by Courtney Milan
Voting quotes by Julius Malema
#85. We hope for the best, if elections are conducted like this all over South Africa we can indeed say we welcome any results and accept them. #Quote by Julius Malema
Voting quotes by George Carlin
#86. The next time they give you all that civic bullshit about voting, keep in mind that Hitler was elected in a full, free democratic election #Quote by George Carlin
Voting quotes by Robert Frost
#87. Thinking is not to agree or disagree. That's voting. #Quote by Robert Frost
Voting quotes by Charles Bukowski
#88. At the age of 25 most people were finished. A whole god-damned nation of assholes driving automobiles, eating, having babies, doing everything in the worst way possible, like voting for the presidential candidate who reminded them most of themselves. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Voting quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#89. If any think that their influence would be lost there, and their voices no longer afflict the ear of the State, that they would not be as an enemy within its walls, they do not know how much truth is stronger than errors, nor how much more eloquently and effectively he can combat injustice who has experienced a little in his own person. Cast your whole vote, not a strip of paper merely, but your whole influence. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Voting quotes by Alice Vachss
#90. The victims I've worked with taught me that individuals want to believe they are entitled to justice. My community taught me that when the choice is clear-cut enough, so do entire counties.

We have become profoundly discouraged about whether we have such choices. My own experience is that we do, if we are willing to pay the price. We need better data to make decisions based on performance, but getting that data is a matter of passing the right laws requiring crunchable statistics and mandatory public reports. The rest is on us. If Tip O'Neil was right, if all politics is local, then our local district attorneys are the place to start. Crime is local. What we do about it is as close as the nearest voting booth. #Quote by Alice Vachss
Voting quotes by David Barton
#91. You don't have a right to vote, you've got a duty of vote. #Quote by David Barton
Voting quotes by Learned Hand
#92. The apathy of the modern voter is the confusion of the modern reformer. #Quote by Learned Hand
Voting quotes by Jesse Ventura
#93. I think that when Americans go to vote, states should not list what party the candidates are affiliated with. That would require voters to actually think and get to know a candidate instead of voting for their favorite gang. 'Oh, this guy is a Republican, so he must be good.' #Quote by Jesse Ventura
Voting quotes by Chris Hedges
#94. Money has replaced the vote. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Voting quotes by Bernie Sanders
#95. How do we say, why do you keep voting for people who are giving more tax breaks to billionaires, who are going to send your jobs abroad, not going to let you form a union, not going to allow your kids to go to college? Why do you keep voting for these guys? #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Voting quotes by John F. Kennedy
#96. There is no city in the United States in which I can get a warmer welcome and fewer votes than Columbia, Ohio. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Voting quotes by Barbara Boxer
#97. Every citizen of this country should be guaranteed that their vote matters, that their vote is counted, and that in the voting booth, their vote has a much weight as that of any CEO, any member of Congress, or any President. #Quote by Barbara Boxer
Voting quotes by Howard Zinn
#98. Richard Nixon was not the lesser evil, he was the greater evil, but in his administration the war was finally brought to an end, because he had to deal with the power of the anti-war movement as well as the power of the Vietnamese movement. I will vote, but always with a caution that voting is not crucial, and organizing is the important thing. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Voting quotes by Jim Trelease
#99. Common sense should tell us that reading is the ultimate weapon
destroying ignorance, poverty and despair before they can destroyus. A nation that doesn't read much doesn't know much. And a nation that doesn't know much is more likely to make poor choices in the home, the marketplace, the jury box and the voting booth ... The challenge, therefore, is to convince future generations of children that carrying a book is more rewarding than carrying guns. #Quote by Jim Trelease
Voting quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#100. I have come to see more and more that one of the most decisive steps that the Negro can take is that little walk to the voting booth. That is an important step. We've got to gain the ballot, and through that gain, political power. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Voting quotes by Criss Jami
#101. I often ask myself, 'Who would Jesus vote for?' Then I start to think that he wouldn't vote at all; however, it would not be out of apathy or disinterest, but out of perfection and light. As a miracle worker, I think he would, by the power of God's teachings, the perseverance and the truth, influence in a modern sense whoever is put into office how to best serve his fellow men. One, like his skeptics, may find that impractical. But there is a message in that no man in power can slow the momentum of the will of God, and the miracles of his teachings will be forever victorious. #Quote by Criss Jami
Voting quotes by Linda Ronstadt
#102. People don't realize that by voting Republican, they voted against themselves ... I worry that some people are entertained by the idea of this war. They don't know anything about the Iraqis, but they're angry and frustrated in their own lives. It's like Germany, before Hitler took over. The economy was bad and people felt kicked around. They looked for a scapegoat. Now we've got a new bunch of Hitlers. #Quote by Linda Ronstadt
Voting quotes by Eleanor Mondale
#103. Don't forget to vote for Bill Clinton and Al Gore. Stay home if you're voting for Dole. #Quote by Eleanor Mondale
Voting quotes by Donald Trump
#104. The real con artist is Senator Marco Rubio.Who was elected in Florida and who has the worst voting record in the United States Senate. He doesn't go to vote. He's absent. #Quote by Donald Trump
Voting quotes by Dan  Marshall
#105. Election night had turned into an occasion to celebrate or to drown sorrows. Regardless of the outcome, there was an excuse to party, to drink, and to curse the other side, that terrible separate half of society who were too stupid to see things the 'right' way. It seemed odd to Adam that most elections were evenly split. Forty percent of the votes were usually for the most pro-business candidate, who somehow convinced another ten percent or so of the voting public to go along with him or her, either through a barrage of false ads or by paying the media for positive coverage. #Quote by Dan Marshall
Voting quotes by Neil Gaiman
#106. Nothing you do in the White House matters. You know why not? Because as far as the mass of voting morons is concerned, while you're in office, you'll still be the worst single president they've ever had until you stop. Then it's some other poor bastard's turn. And even that doesn't matter, because ten, twenty years later, they'll look back on you, and wonder why they didn't appreciate you when they had you ... You don't get to make a difference. You don't get to do jack shit. You know what you get? ... You get an entry in the history book, and every 15 minutes, every day at Disneyworld, an animatronic puppet wearing your face will wave or nod when the spotlight hits it. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Voting quotes by David Talbot
#107. Under dictatorship, people are enslaved but they know it," he told de Mohrenschildt, recalling his days in the Soviet Union. "Here, the politicians constantly lie to people and they become immune to these lies because they have the privilege of voting. But voting is rigged and democracy here is a gigantic profusion of lies and clever brainwashing." Oswald worried about the FBI's police-state surveillance tactics. And he believed that America was turning more "militaristic" as it increasingly interfered in the internal affairs of other countries. #Quote by David Talbot
Voting quotes by Warren Ellis
#108. You want to know about voting. I'm here to tell you about voting. Imagine you're locked in a huge underground night-club filled with sinners, whores, freaks and unnameable things that rape pitbulls for fun. And you ain't allowed out until you all vote on what you're going to do tonight. You like to put your feet up and watch "Republican Party Reservation". They like to have sex with normal people using knives, guns, and brand new sexual organs you did not even know existed. So you vote for television, and everyone else, as far as your eye can see, votes to fuck you with switchblades. That's voting. You're welcome. #Quote by Warren Ellis
Voting quotes by John Ensign
#109. The act of voting by ordinary Iraqis in the face of extreme danger confirms President Bush's belief that people around the globe, when given a chance, will choose liberty and democracy over enslavement and tyranny. #Quote by John Ensign
Voting quotes by Mark Steyn
#110. When California goes bankrupt, the Golden State's woes will be nationalized and shared with the nation at large: the feckless must have their irresponsibility rewarded and the prudent get stuck with the tab. Passing Sacramento's buck to Washington accelerates the centralizing pull in American politics and eventually eliminates any advantage to voting with your feet. It will be as if California and New York have burst their bodices like two corpulent gin-soaked trollops and rolled over the fruited plain to rub bellies at the Mississippi. If you're underneath, it's not going to be fun. #Quote by Mark Steyn
Voting quotes by Tony Benn
#111. When I saw how the European Union was developing, it was very obvious what they had in mind was not democratic. In Britain, you vote for a government so the government has to listen to you, and if you don't like it you can change it. #Quote by Tony Benn
Voting quotes by Ted Stevens
#112. People who vote against this today are voting against me and I will not forget. #Quote by Ted Stevens
Voting quotes by H.L. Mencken
#113. There's really no point to voting. If it made any difference, it would probably be illegal. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Voting quotes by Bill Bonner
#114. Anyone who wants to vote probably shouldn't be allowed to vote. Voting is the first step towards zombification - trying to get something without actually working for it. #Quote by Bill Bonner
Voting quotes by Anthony Kennedy
#115. No one questions the validity, the urgency, the essentiality of the Voting Rights Act. #Quote by Anthony Kennedy
Voting quotes by Mark Steyn
#116. In the Sixties, the hippies used to say, "Never trust anyone over 30." Now all the Sixties hippies are in their sixties, and they've gone quiet about that, but it's good advice for you: never trust anyone over 30 with the societal checkbook. You thought you were the idealistic youth of the Obama era, but in fact you're the designated fall-guys. You weren't voting for "the future," but to deny yourself the very possibility of one--like turkeys volunteering to waddle around with an "Audacity of Thanksgiving" bumper sticker on your tush. Instead of swaying glassy-eyed behind President Obama at his campaign rallies singing "We are the hopeychange," you should have been demanding that the government spend less money on small agencies with fewer employees on smaller salaries. Because if you don't, there won't be a future. "You can be anything you want to be"--but only if you first tell today's big spenders that, whatever they want to be, they should try doing it on their own dime. #Quote by Mark Steyn
Voting quotes by Jello Biafra
#117. I'm totally down with insurrection in the street. I've had a great time with that over the years. Insurrection in the voting booth is the other part of the equation. #Quote by Jello Biafra
Voting quotes by Gary Johnson
#118. A wasted vote is voting for someone that you don't believe in #Quote by Gary Johnson
Voting quotes by Maynard Jackson
#119. I ran because I became convinced after King was shot and killed, and Martin Luther King was one of the great heroes of my life, that politics is not perfect but it's the best available nonviolent means of changing how we live. If we don't like how we live, we can participate in the perfect most revolutionary act in a democracy, it's called voting. #Quote by Maynard Jackson
Voting quotes by Howard Zinn
#120. The American system is the most ingenious system of control in world history. With a country so rich in natural resources, talent, and labor power the system can afford to distribute just enough wealth to just enough people to limit discontent to a troublesome minority. It is a country so powerful, so big, so pleasing to so many of its citizens that it can afford to give freedom of dissent to the small number who are not pleased. There is no system of control with more openings, apertures, leeways, flexibilities, rewards for the chosen, winning tickets in lotteries. There is none that disperses its controls more complexly through the voting system, the work situation, the church, the family, the school, the mass media
none more successful in mollifying opposition with reforms, isolating people from one another, creating patriotic loyalty. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Voting quotes by Carlos P. Romulo
#121. Agreements in the organizations of world power are never reached on the floor. They are made in the delegates' lounge and corridors long before the voting begins. #Quote by Carlos P. Romulo
Voting quotes by Bill Maher
#122. New Rule: America has every right ot bitch about gas prices suddenly shooting up. How could we have known? Oh, wait, there was that teensy, tiny thing about being warned constantly over the last forty years but still creating more urban sprawl, failing to build public transport, buying gas-guzzlers, and voting for oil company shills. So, New Rule: Shut the fuck up about gas prices. #Quote by Bill Maher
Voting quotes by Ilya Ilf
#123. Let's put it to a vote. Shall the ballots be open or secret?"
"We don't need Soviet-style voting," Charushnikov said, offended. "Let's vote the honest way, the European way: secret ballots. #Quote by Ilya Ilf

Voting quotes by Maggie Smith
#126. I think he [Leonardo DiCaprio] is a terrific actor. And I've - I've been rooting and voting for him since "Gilbert Grape." I thought he was so amazing in that one. He was a young man, really very young boy. #Quote by Maggie Smith
Voting quotes by Howard Zinn
#127. They teach us that the supreme act of citizenship is to choose among savior, by going into a voting booth every four years to choose between two white and well-off Anglo-Saxon males of inoffensive personality and orthodox opinions. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Voting quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#128. What is the use of voting? We know that the machines of both parties are subsidized by the same persons, and therefore it is useless to turn in either direction. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Voting quotes by Meg Greenfield
#129. Everybody's for democracy in principle. It's only in practice that the thing gives rise to stiff objections. #Quote by Meg Greenfield
Voting quotes by Joe Baca
#130. It is an honor to be awarded with such a high rating from an organization as well respected as the NAACP. I am pleased that the oldest and largest civil rights organization in the nation, has recognized my voting record. #Quote by Joe Baca
Voting quotes by Chris Patten
#131. There is a sort of exotic preposterousness about a lot of elections, the way arguments are made even cruder. #Quote by Chris Patten
Voting quotes by George Seldes
#132. The Republican and Democratic parties both feed out of the same bag provided by the monied system, and where the list frequently differs the same interests are represented. #Quote by George Seldes
Voting quotes by Shesh Nath Vernwal

Voting quotes by Oleg Cassini

Voting quotes by Erin Passons
#135. Complacent eligible voters who abstained from voting because "I don't like either candidate" - provided a deadly assist. You are the collective of assassins responsible for slaughtering the America of hope and progress.

Voting quotes by Neil Postman
#136. Voting, we might even say, is the next to last refuge of the politically impotent. The last refuge is, of course, giving your opinion to a pollster, who will get a version of it through a desiccated question, and then will submerge it in a Niagara of similar opinions, and convert them into
what else?
another piece of news. Thus we have here a great loop of impotence: The news elicits from you a variety of opinions about which you can do nothing except to offer them as more news, about which you can do nothing. #Quote by Neil Postman
Voting quotes by Michelle Alexander
#137. If shackling former prisoners with a lifetime of debt and authorizing discrimination against them in employment, housing, education, and public benefits is not enough to send the message that they are not wanted and not even considered full citizens, then stripping voting rights from those labeled criminals surely gets the point across. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Voting quotes by Howard Dean
#138. I intend to talk about race during this election in the South because the Republicans have been talking about it since 1968 in order to divide us. And I'm going to bring us together. Because you know what? You know what? White folks in the South who drive pickup trucks with Confederate flag decals in the back ought to be voting with us and not them, because their kids don't have health insurance either and their kids need better schools too. #Quote by Howard Dean
Voting quotes by Louise Erickson
#139. We will all be better citizens when voting records of our Congressmen are followed as carefully as scores of pro-football games. #Quote by Louise Erickson
Voting quotes by Mark Twain
#140. If voting made any difference they wouldn't let us do it. #Quote by Mark Twain
Voting quotes by Elizabeth Hardwick
#141. In those years I did not care to enjoy sex, only to have it. That is what seeing Alex again on Fifth Avenue brought back to me - a youth of fascinated, passionless copulation. There they are, figures in a discoloured blur, young men and not so young, the nice ones with automobiles, the dull ones full of suspicions and stinginess. By asking a thousand questions of many heavy souls, I did not learn much. You receive biographies interesting mainly for their coherence. So many are children who from the day of their birth are growing up to be their parents. Look at the voting records, inherited like flat feet. #Quote by Elizabeth Hardwick
Voting quotes by Sydney J. Harris
#142. There are always too many Democratic congressmen, too many Republican congressmen, and never enough U.S. congressmen. #Quote by Sydney J. Harris
Voting quotes by George Carlin
#143. If voting changed anything, it would be illegal. #Quote by George Carlin
Voting quotes by Jeff Greenfield
#144. As a personal matter, I stopped voting more than a decade ago, on the grounds that it helped me as an analyst not to think about making a choice in the voting booth. #Quote by Jeff Greenfield
Voting quotes by Evan Esar
#145. Communism is a form of government under which every citizen at election time enjoys the privilege of voting Yes. #Quote by Evan Esar
Voting quotes by Thomas Sowell
#146. More frightening to me than any policy or politician is the ease with which the public is played for fools with words. The latest example is the 'Employee Freedom of Choice Act,' a bill that will do away with secret ballot elections among workers voting on whether to be represented by a union. It is an open invitation to intimidation - which is to say, loss of freedom of choice. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Voting quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#147. As you sometimes swear by him that made you, I conclude your sentiments do not correspond with his, in that which is the basis of the doctrine you both agree in: and this makes it impossible to imagine whence this congruity between you arises. To grant that there is a supreme intelligence who rules the world and has established laws to regulate the actions of his creatures; and still to assert that man, in a state of nature, may be considered as perfectly free from all restraints of law and government, appears to a common understanding altogether irreconcilable. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Voting quotes by Richard Russo
#148. I must be losing patience with my fellow humans," Miss Beryl went on. "Anymore I'm all for executing people who are mean to children. I used to favor just cutting off their feet. Now I want to rid the world of them completely. If this keeps up I'll be voting Republican soon. #Quote by Richard Russo
Voting quotes by Dave Eggers
#149. If things continue this way, there will be two societies - or at least I hope there will be two - the one you're helping create, and an alternative to it. You and your ilk will live, willingly, joyfully, under constant surveillance, watching each other always, commenting on each other, voting and liking and disliking each other, smiling and frowning, and otherwise doing nothing much else. #Quote by Dave Eggers
Voting quotes by John Cornyn
#150. If there is a nuclear tactic being used here, I submit it is the use of that obstruction where a willful minority blocks a bipartisan majority from voting on the President's judicial nominees. #Quote by John Cornyn
Voting quotes by Richelle Mead
#151. Smug, I looked back at Tatiana. "Isn´t eighteen the legal voting age?" Checkmate, bitch. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Voting quotes by Ted Cruz
#152. Voting for a candidate for the DC circuit is very different from confirming someone to the US Supreme Court. I have been very clear that the Senate should not confirm any nominee in a lame duck session. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Voting quotes by William B. Munro
#153. People vote their resentment, not their appreciation. The average man does not vote for anything, but against something. #Quote by William B. Munro

Voting quotes by Laura Chinchilla
#155. You don't only have the need to do it well because leading a country is something quite important, but also because I am the first woman I have the obligation to do it the best possible way so my country can continue voting for women in the future. It is a big responsibility. #Quote by Laura Chinchilla
Voting quotes by Paul Craig Roberts
#156. The notion that Americans can be protected from "terror" by giving up the Bill of Rights is absurd. Democrats are complicit in this absurd notion. Many were intimidated into voting for police state legislation, because they lacked the intestinal fortitude to call police state legislation by its own name. The legislation that has been passed during the Bush regime is far more dangerous to Americans than Muslim terrorists. #Quote by Paul Craig Roberts
Voting quotes by Joan Rivers
#157. The people voting for the Oscars are so old. I haven't seen one Academy Award voter with a tampon in her purse. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Voting quotes by John F. Kerry
#158. I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force
if necessary
to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security. #Quote by John F. Kerry
Voting quotes by David Letterman
#159. But down in Florida in the early voting, there were computer glitches, confusing ballots, long lines and chaos. And when President Bush heard about this, he said, 'Mission accomplished!' #Quote by David Letterman
Voting quotes by Lewis Black
#160. In my lifetime, we've gone from Eisenhower to George W. Bush. We've gone from John F. Kennedy to Al Gore. If this is evolution, I believe that in twelve years, we'll be voting for plants. #Quote by Lewis Black
Voting quotes by Darryl Pinckney
#161. It's not true that voting doesn't make a difference. To check out is political suicide. This is especially true for our young black artists. You don't want to inadvertently end up doing someone's bidding. #Quote by Darryl Pinckney

Voting quotes by Nicholas Gane
#164. ... The individual is still obliged to confer the legitimacy of mutually antagonistic values, for even though the array of ultimate values may contract with the rationalization of the world, one is never relieved from the existential burden of choice ('taking a stand'). #Quote by Nicholas Gane
Voting quotes by Noam Chomsky
#165. Small differences in a system of great power can have enormous consequences. [Source: Al Jazeera 'Upfront' interview] #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Voting quotes by Howard Zinn
#166. I think a way to behave is to think not in terms of representative government, not in terms of voting, not in terms of electoral politics, but thinking in terms of organizing social movements, organizing in the work place, organizing in the neighborhood, organizing collectives that can become strong enough to eventually take over - first to become strong enough to resist what has been done to them by authority, and second, later, to become strong enough to actually take over the institutions. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Voting quotes by Mike Rowe
#167. Spend a few hours every week studying American history, human nature, and economic theory. Start with "Economics in One Lesson." Then try Keynes. Then Hayek. Then Marx. Then Hegel. Develop a worldview that you can articulate as well as defend. Test your theory with people who disagree with you. Debate. Argue. Adjust your philosophy as necessary. #Quote by Mike Rowe
Voting quotes by Robert Frost
#168. Thinking isn't agreeing or disagreeing. That's voting. #Quote by Robert Frost
Voting quotes by Charley Reese
#169. Unless they can pass the same test that immigrants must pass to become citizens, people shouldnt be allowed to vote. The idea that there is some public benefit in ignoramuses and morons pulling levers next to names on a ballot is one of the evil myths of post-modern America. The purpose of voting, in our country, is to select men and women with the competence and integrity to operate the mechanics of government fixed by our Constitution. For this process to have any public benefit requires that the choices be made on an intelligent, knowledgeable and reasoned basis. #Quote by Charley Reese
Voting quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#170. As Negro voting increased, Congress got an improved sense of hearing. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Voting quotes by Walid Jumblatt
#171. It's strange for me to say it, but this process of change has started because of the American invasion of Iraq. I was cynical about Iraq. But when I saw the Iraqi people voting three weeks ago, 8 million of them, it was the start of a new Arab world. The Syrian people, the Egyptian people, all say that something is changing. The Berlin Wall has fallen. We can see it. #Quote by Walid Jumblatt
Voting quotes by James S.A. Corey

Voting quotes by Greg Gutfeld
#175. The problem with the immigration debate, it's probably is the most poisoned and political debate of any issue, because you have this huge voting bloc that everybody says is yours #Quote by Greg Gutfeld
Voting quotes by Frances O'Grady
#176. Voting to go on strike is not a decision working people take lightly and is always accompanied by a strong sense of injustice at work. The impact of losing a day's pay is significant, not least for those in the lowest paid jobs who are already on the tightest budgets. #Quote by Frances O'Grady
Voting quotes by Benazir Bhutto
#177. Democracy is necessary to peace and to undermining the forces of terrorism. #Quote by Benazir Bhutto
Voting quotes by Walter Lippmann
#178. The effort to calculate exactly what the voters want at each particular moment leaves out of account the fact that when they are troubled the thing the voters most want is to be told what to want. #Quote by Walter Lippmann
Voting quotes by Ron Paul
#179. Years ago, a member of Congress slipped a laminated quote into my hand that he must have thought I would find meaningful. I paid little attention at first and unfortunately I don't recall just who gave me the quote. I placed it next to my voting card and have carried it ever since. The quote came from Elie Wiesel's book One Generation After. The quote was entitled "Why I Protest."

Author Elie Wiesel tells the story of the one righteous man of Sodom, who walked the streets protesting against the injustice of this city. People made fun of him, derided him. Finally, a young person asked: "Why do you continue your protest against evil; can't you see no one is paying attention to you?" He answered, "I'll tell you why I continue. In the beginning, I thought I would change people. Today, I know I cannot. Yet, if I continue my protest, at least I will prevent others from changing me."

I'm not that pessimistic that we can't change people's beliefs or that people will not respond to the message of liberty and peace. But we must always be on guard not to let others change us once we gain the confidence that we are on the right track in the search for truth. #Quote by Ron Paul
Voting quotes by E.B. White
#180. Surely the Board knows what democracy is. It is the line that forms on the right. It is the don't in don't shove. It is the hole in the stuffed shirt through which the sawdust slowly trickles; it is the dent in the high hat. Democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half the people
are right more than half the time. It is the feeling of privacy in the voting booths,the feeling of communion in the libraries, the feeling of vitality everywhere. Democracy is a letter to the editor. Democracy is the score at the beginning of the ninth. It is an idea which hasn't been disproved yet, a song the words of which have not gone bad. It's the mustard on the hot dog and the cream in the rationed coffee. #Quote by E.B. White
Voting quotes by Preston Manning
#181. For many years I have advocated 'redesigning Parliament' in a variety of ways - elect the Senate, do away with the 'confidence convention,' permit freer voting, strengthen the role of back benchers and committees, do away with ineffectual 'take note' debates, restructure question period, and so on. #Quote by Preston Manning
Voting quotes by Gordon Tullock
#182. I believe I have demonstrated that the voters are characteristically ill-informed when voting on reducing social costs. Furthermore, their primary concern is with wealth transferred to themselves, rather than with social cost efficiency. Logically, this would mean that democratic government would be inefficient in reducing social costs. #Quote by Gordon Tullock
Voting quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#183. In a society where the majority choose charisma over character, democracy does more harm than good to the actual progress of that society #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Voting quotes by George Takei
#184. My father once told me that American democracy is a people's democracy at heart, and that it therefore can be as great as the American people, or as fallible. It depends on all of us. But our system is more fragile than we know. To sustain it, we must always cherish the ideals on which it was founded, remain vigilant against the dark forces that threaten it, and actively engage in the process of making it work. #Quote by George Takei
Voting quotes by James Fitzjames Stephen
#185. If I am asked, What do you propose to substitute for universal suffrage? Practically, What have you to recommend? I answer at once, Nothing. The whole current of thought and feeling, the whole stream of human affairs, is setting with irresistible force in that direction. The old ways of living, many of which were just as bad in their time as any of our devices can be in ours, are breaking down all over Europe, and are floating this way and that like haycocks in a flood. Nor do I see why any wise man should expend much thought or trouble on trying to save their wrecks. The waters are out and no human force can turn them back, but I do not see why as we go with the stream we need sing Hallelujah to the river god. #Quote by James Fitzjames Stephen
Voting quotes by David Foster Wallace
#186. How can even the idea of rebellion against corporate culture stay meaningful when Chrysler Inc. advertises trucks by invoking "The Dodge Rebellion"? How is one to be bona fide iconoclast when Burger King sells onion rings with "Sometimes You Gotta Break the Rules"? How can an Image-Fiction writer hope to make people more critical of televisual culture by parodying television as a self-serving commercial enterprise when Pepsi and Subaru and FedEx parodies of self-serving commercials are already doing big business? It's almost a history lesson: I'm starting to see just why turn-of-the-century Americans' biggest fear was of anarchist and anarchy. For if anarchy actually wins, if rulelessness become the rule, then protest and change become not just impossible but incoherent. It'd be like casting a ballot for Stalin: you are voting for an end to all voting. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Voting quotes by Jarod Kintz
#187. Don't try to pull the wool over my eyes. You can't fool an old sheep like me. To prove it, I'll tell you that I've been continuously voting for the same person for president for years and years, a few of them even before he died. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Voting quotes by Leonard Lance
#188. Sometimes, people forget my record of fiscal conservatism on major issues in the state legislature. The greatest example is my voting against the pension borrowing scheme in 1997. #Quote by Leonard Lance
Voting quotes by Patrisse Khan-Cullors
#189. And I get angry. Because we've tried so hard. Ninety-six percent of Black women tried so hard in voting against him. And not only did this country not elect Clinton, it elected a person who publicly supported sexual assault, a man one accused of rape by his daughter Ivanka's mother. I am angry with the Democratic Party for not knowing that there could have been and should have been a better candidate and angry that a better campaign -- a campaign that honored the journey, that included community in real and transformative ways -- was not launched. I am angry I didn't realize -- or accept on a cellular level -- how wedded to racism and misogyny average Americans are. I am angry at my own naiveté. Our own naiveté. There was a real and substantive difference between these two candidates and we didn't take that seriously enough. #Quote by Patrisse Khan-Cullors
Voting quotes by Joss Stone
#190. The recession is everywhere. We need to be heard. Wouldn't it be great if there could be more referendums so we could have regular voting on specific points? #Quote by Joss Stone
Voting quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Voting quotes by Rand Paul
#192. I think what happened during the Great Depression was that African Americans understood that Republicans championed citizenship and voting rights but they became impatient for economic emancipation. #Quote by Rand Paul
Voting quotes by Natalie Angier
#193. Nobody knows what the whales may have to click and clack about, but it could be a form of voting-time to stop here and synchronously dive down in search of deep water squid, now time to resurface, move on, dive again. Clans also seem to caucus on which males they like and will mate with more or less as a group and which ones to collectively spurn. By all appearances, female sperm whales are terrible size queens. Over the generations, they have consistently voted in favor of enhanced male mass. Their dream candidate nowadays is some fellow named Moby, and he's three times their size. #Quote by Natalie Angier
Voting quotes by Walter Kirn
#194. The reason that last-ditch political maneuvering has become business as usual in Washington is that the actors involved are drunk on blame and are convinced that the voting public is, too. They count on outrage, thereby spreading numbness. They cherish the prospect of partisan fury, thereby inspiring nonpartisan disgust. #Quote by Walter Kirn
Voting quotes by Joseph Finder
#195. We were wrapping up our Monday morning Risk Committee meeting, which was basically twelve of the firm's most senior staff members sitting around the big conference table and voting on which cases to take and which to turn down. It was your typical undercaffeinated Monday morning gathering: stifled yawns and low energy, throat-clearing and doodling, and furtive glances at BlackBerrys. Except for Jay, who paced around the room because he couldn't sit still for more than five minutes. #Quote by Joseph Finder
Voting quotes by Scott Adams
#196. Highly intelligent and well-informed people disagree on every political issue. Therefore, intelligence and knowledge are useless for making decisions, because if any of that stuff helped, then all the smart people would have the same opinions. So use your "gut instinct" to make voting choices. That is exactly like being clueless, but with the added advantage that you'll feel as if your random vote preserved democracy. #Quote by Scott Adams
Voting quotes by Daniel Kahneman
