i like the way you're thinking outside the box, jo anne. i like that you are connecting an observation of the vote to something deeper underlying it. while i do see an expression of consciousness within the vote itself, i see an even deeper meaning within the choice to not vote. so what does the right to vote mean, and what statement is made by exercising that choice or not?

for those who vote it matters not who they vote for because both candidates are hand-picked for their allegiance to something other than the will and best interest of the people. the idea of this being a two party system is naive and was conjured to implement a psychological "good cop - bad cop routine" and to split the voters' egos into competing factions for imaginary power and control over the other.
each side believes their side is the "good cop" and that the "bad cop" is attempting to beat them down. so you take to trusting the good cop more than you should because the bad cop is in the hallway just waiting for another opportunity to break you down. the good cop says "just give me something, anything, so i can keep the bad cop from coming in here and doing what he loves to do: beat the crap out of innocent suspects like you." so you confess to the good cop because he offers you safe-haven compared to the state of panic and brutality offered by the bad cop.
voting becomes your confession to the good cop. it allows you to feel good about yourself because you've temporarily staved off the fear of oppression from the bad cop (other party). you feel like you've done something positive because you've exercised your right to vote for the lesser of two evils - your right to confess to the cop of your choice. you've beat the bad cop by giving the glory of "getting the confession" to the good cop. the bad cop lost in his attempt to extract your confession.
the good cop won, but you still end up in prison. the prison is that of the ego believing it is/was right in overcoming the other ego that is/was wrong. the prison is not knowing that the two parties are contrived opposite ends of the same candle, and that no matter which end is lit the candle will eventually burn itself out because the wax (energy - conceptual framework) is limited (finite).
no matter which party gets in to the oval office they will carry out the same nwo plan. the only difference is in the choice of double-speak used. that's not to say that all elected officials are so disposed, but only all candidates for the executive branch having made it passed the primaries. do you wonder why the executive branch has increasingly gotten more power over the other branches? do you understand that this is a process intended to eliminate any checks and balances and create a worldwide monarchy? you will see which ones have been 'chosen' during the primaries by watching how the media supports or doesn't support certain candidates and the language that is used when referring to each.
so what does it tell me if people make a choice to vote for the good cop this time around instead of the bad cop? it tells me that those people still believe that an authority figure can do for them what they are unwilling to do for themselves. it tells be that those people are still willing to cast a vote for who they would prefer to get the glory of controlling and manipulating them, or worse, they are not even aware that they are being manipulated. but mostly, it tells me that those people are still willing to believe in good cops and bad cops.
thus, i take no satisfaction in seeing that people have voted one way or the other, or in seeing that the good cop has won. for i have no illusions that the good cop will save the day. what does the number of voters tell me? it gives me an indication of the number of people unwilling to see what is, and has been, sitting in front of their noses. what is hopeful to me is that the majority of people have come to the honest realization that to some degree, or some reason or other, this is a prison created for self-confessed inmates with no choice except to pick who will lock them up - or choose to not confess.
so, what i find hopeful is that fewer people are being duped into believing that one party or the other getting into the executive branch is going to assuage their fears or make things good, fair, or right. no, only the people can bring peace - by being at peace and living a peaceful life. only the people can bring compassion by treating themselves and otherselves with compassion. this won't happen by helping others perpetuate a lie, or by living their lie.
what would happen if only a few thousand people voted in the next election? would this not send more of a message to the negative elite and to the people than a few extra votes for the next 'good cop'? i will tell you that the ne enjoy seeing you vote in presidential elections (as opposed to voicing your opinion) because it tells them that they are still duping enough people to keep them in control. it tells them that the illusion of the system they have setup for people to voice their concerns within a controlled and limited boundary is accomplishing its' intended goal of domination.
my take on the next election is that the 'good cop' will win this time regardless of how you, or i, or anyone votes. why? because it is time for the good cop to work his magic of rescuing the masses from the persecution of the bad cop. because the masses are tired of, and angry with, the bad cop, and before they begin to scrutinize too closely and start to see the bigger picture a change must be made. this change will come as a relief to some. it will take the dogs off the scent. it will create an environment where a change, any change, will be considered a blessing, and where vigilance is pacified. yet behind the scenes, 'the plan' will be carried forward just as before.
when only a few thousand people are left voting in a system that excludes the rest. that is when the time will be ripe for real change. that is when the negative elite will know they have lost all control.
"It is also to be noted that an adept is one which has freed itself more and more from the constraints of the thoughts, opinions, and bonds of other-selves. Whether this is done for service to others or service to self, it is a necessary part of the awakening of the adept. This freedom is seen by those not free as what you would call evil or black. The magic is recognized; the nature is often not". - Ra, Session 80
