Stop Making Sense
+ de 1600 Acessos
It's Election Day, and it's your duty as a citizen to be irrational.
Let me explain. Political scientists will tell you that voting suffers from a severe "free rider" problem. Even if it's very important to you that Mr. A beat Mr. B, your individual vote is very unlikely to decide the outcome. So the sensible thing is not to bother voting. Yet if everyone acts on that logic, Mr. B - the candidate backed by corrupt special interests, which pay for his get-out-the-vote operation - sweeps into office.
So now is the time not to be sensible. Forget those self-interested calculations. Go out there and vote - and tell everyone you know to do the same. America's future depends on your irrationality.
