Yes, in a very specific way. By agreeing to vote for the "best of the worst", we agree to participate in the system without reforms. That is what we do when we are sheeple, and we still deserve what we get. The right thing for the people to do when there is no real choice is, to reject all of the candidates.
Only true in theory, Manny. If ALL the choices are poor, what do we deserve?
In my entire life of 59 years, only a couple of times did I have a choice where I could say I agreed with more than half of a party's platform and historical proof of their character. Every other time I have had to hold my nose and vote for the least rank!
So if we are not given a valid choice are we truly responsible for the outcome?
