Yeah, it’s pretty rigged, [..] but there are meaningful victories we can gain through it.

How do they not see the inherent contradiction here?

If you don’t vote, or you don’t do make even a MINISCULE FUCKING EFFORT to get better representatives elected, you’re throwing a shit-ton of vulnerable people under the bus. Long-term, yes, we want no more government. Short-term, we can make life easier for those the regime is hardest on.

Yuppies will still put spikes on benches so they won't have to look at the homeless under a Sanders presidency. The only difference is that they won't have to pay to see a doctor or they'll get the college debt forgiven. And it's not like our imperial efforts would stop if we somehow get someone with lukewarm socialist ideology into office; and if they're the only person in government with those beliefs, they'll have to get through a lot of bureaucracy to make even the tiniest change. And it's not like the popular vote means anything, so my vote doesn't matter.

And let's be real, they're not gonna get to vote for sanders. It'll be either Biden, Warren or Bloomberg.

Without a doubt. It's a testament to the uselessness of voting when the one person in a political party that has different politics is also the least likely to win. I enjoy having the choice of choosing between different masters with slight variations on what they'd do while in power.
