6. The "yep, I do matter" argument

PeaceRequiresAnarchy 1 year 24 weeks 5 days 8 hours ago

"The fact that I voted makes this election a more valid and legitimate one than it would be if I had not voted. Regardless of whether my candidate wins or not, the fact that the winner was elected after many millions of people cast their votes means that he has earned the right to govern. That alone makes for a better country. My participation alone does not mean much. My participation with millions of others means a tremendous amount." -- Commenter John Baker

Baker's argument is wrong. The fact that he and millions of other people vote does not give Obama or anyone else the right to govern. The fact that there are many people who believe Baker's argument, however, is a good reason not to vote, because it means that people like Baker will be less likely to erroneously believe that the State's rule is legitimate.
