The evaluation of an individual vote is flawed because people are a process/amalgamation of habits, instincts and social interactions, not the isolated and supposedly intentional individual model we consciously believe (and get manipulated by). The vote belongs to an important civic process, but unfortunately, there’s also an economic one that chooses the candidates and issues long before the civic vote occurs. That’s the “one dollar = one vote” part.

Voting is still a civic duty of peaceful coexistence, and should be ranked runoff type or eliminated altogether in favor of a lottery (true representative govt) but if you truly want Change, keep it in your pocket and avoid the robot checkout lines.
