For your information: Canvassers are on piece work. They have a target to reach. If they reach it they’re paid 60p per completed form. If not, they’re paid 40p per form … so when you get the aggressive ones, they aren’t aggressively trying to get your info because they think you have to supply it, they’re aggressively trying to earn big bucks ONLY! Remember that and keep the conversation in that area … for fun.
Consent of the governed?? Does anyone really believe that?
It’s within YOUR power to make that part of the definition of a statute a reality by, not filling in the voter registration form. It’s as SIMPLE as that!! You are taking away concent “physically” and by letting them know what you’re doing, make it a real “concept”, as opposed to just ignoring them. By ignoring them you fail to make them aware of the existence of the concept and so, it isn’t real to them and you haven’t removed consent in any meaningful way.
If no one knows about your “withdrawing” your consent, will it make any difference to the bigger picture? My brain processes say “not on your nelly”.
By not filling out of the the VR form you are retracting of your consent. By not registering you are making your lack of confidence in the “representative” known and also enforcing your chosen “removal” from the voting spectacle. So when and if you choose to register to vote, you will be governed by consent.
A state that FORCES a people to vote for governance is a tyrannical state. Threats of a fine for declining to “join in” is tyrannical. Threats of imprisonment for non-payment of the fine is tyrannical. Imprisonment for non-payment of the fine is tyrannical.
