Vote for the man who promises least; he'll be the least disappointing.bernard baruch
Anarchists know that a long period of education must precede any great fundamental change in society , hence they do not believe in Vote begging, nor political campaigns, but rather in the development of self-thinking individuals . We look away from government for relief, because we know that force (legalized) invades the personal liberty of man, seizes upon the natural elements and intervenes between man and natural laws; from this exercise of force through governments flows nearly all the misery , poverty , crime and confusion existing in society .
Tonight, nobody could Vote for their own country, but it is good to be able to Vote and it is good to have a choice. Good luck on your journey, Azerbaijan. Europe is watching you!anke engelke

The fate of the country does not depend on how you Vote at the polls — the worst man is as strong as the best at that game; it does not depend on what kind of paper you drop into the ballot-box once a year, but on what kind of man you drop from your chamber into the street every morning.Henry David Thoreau
The citizen who thinks he sees that the commonwealth's political clothes are worn out, and yet holds his peace and does not agitate for a new suit, is disloyal, he is a traitor. That he may be the only one who thinks he sees this decay, does not excuse him: it is his duty to agitate anyway, and it is the duty of others to Vote him down if they do not see the matter as he does.mark twain
I am now here in Congress... I am at liberty to Vote as my conscience and judgment dictates to be right, without the yoke of any party on me, or the driver at my heels, with his whip in hand, commanding me to ge-wo-haw, just at his pleasure. Look at my arms, you will find no party hand-cuff on them!
They hate what they see right here in this chamber: a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to Vote and assemble and disagree with each other.
Sheep run to the slaughterhouse, silent and hopeless, but at least sheep never Vote for the butcher who kills them or the people who devour them. More beastly than any beast, more sheepish than any sheep, the voter names his own executioner and chooses his own devourer, and for this precious "right" a revolution was fought.
"Do you think people will Vote for me?" "Heck yes! I'd Vote for you."Napoleon

His thinking threw light in a very introspective way on the entire process of the judicial function. His decisions, beyond just the Vote they represented, were sufficiently philosophical to be of enduring interest. He decided the case before him with that respect for its particulars, its special features, that marks alike the honest artist and the just judge.harlan, john marshall, ii
It has always been our deep conviction, and we have always stressed the fact that the only solution for Afghanistan is democracy through elections. Each individual must have the right to Vote. The day we will be in Kabul, we will organize elections under the auspices of international organizations.ahmad shah massoud
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can Vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.alexander fraser tytler
People will Vote for Daniela Santanchè because she is a beautiful babe.Silvio Berlusconi
Yes, I did have to struggle very hard to get this [the Vote on the Iraq war] through, but the reason I did it was because I thought it was the right thing to do. I didn't take this on myself... just because I thought, 'Let's give myself a really hard time for a couple of years!'tony blair
It would be hard to find a single example in history in which a group that cast more than 50 percent of the Vote got away with calling itself the victim... Women are the only 'oppressed' group to share the same parents as the 'oppressor'; to be born into the middle class and upper class as frequently as the 'oppressor'; to own more of the culture's luxury items than the 'oppressor'...warren farrell
Between being ‘right’ and being kind, I know which way I Vote.robert a. heinlein

The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities, and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. / One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to Vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections.
