Why Your Vote Hasn’t Mattered Since 1913

from The Daily Bell:

“No taxation without representation!”

That was a popular phrase during the decades leading up to the Revolutionary War. Colonists thought it was unfair to be taxed and subjected to English rule without consent.

Today Washington DC hands down laws and taxes to every one of the 320 million people living in the United States.

And just like under English rule, we are not represented in the federal government.

Now I know what you’re thinking… we have the right to vote for our leaders.
