Once again, it goes back to belonging to the O.D.D.* I don't know if I'll ever be able to break away mentally even though I'll never go back to being a member. I know too much. That religion is completely ruined for you once you really study it. When I first had doubts, my mother encouraged me to find the answers to my theological and organizational questions by researching the publications produced by the church.
Anyway, one of the things that sets O.D.D. members apart from society is that they don't believe in voting. In fact, you're taught that it's wrong to do so. The principle behind this is that voting means you're putting your faith in mankind instead of in God. We're taught that only God can solve the world's problems and that we should be eagerly awaiting God's post-Armageddon kingdom when all evil will be wiped out. Mankind's attempts to create a world full of "peace and security" will never be successful anyway, so even if a candidate seems like a good person or an able public servant, you still shouldn't vote for them.
I'm going to write more about this later on tonight.
