How do you get change if you vote the way you always have?

"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always be where you've always been." Samuel Clemens

Now this is a question about change and how everybody seems to want it, but everybody still votes the same. 
    My grandfather was one such person, he always voted Democratic no matter what. Yet at the same time he would bitch and gripe about how things never seem to change. The government is still corrupt, workers are still taken advantage of, and so on. Yet I still see the same old people playing the same old game they always have. You would think that in the past 200 years we would've learned our lesson and realize that the aristocrats are the only ones who are really playing the game. The rest of us who are actually only pawns in the game need to realize that our leaders have no qualms about sacrificing someone they consider expendable. 
   Over the last 50 years of my life I have realized that change is a good thing. As a child I didn't know what to expect and was extremely fearful of it. Later in life I began to realize that change was the only thing that gave me passion to move forward. And now later in life I have come to realize that it doesn't matter what the change is, so long as it's change. 
    A great general once said "That in the heat of battle should you find yourself in a stalemate, change is the only thing that will break it and it doesn't matter what it is, so long as you get a response from your enemy. Once your enemy responds to what you have done, then you will know what you need to do." 

  • So here's my questions: if you vote the way you always have, how can you expect things to change?
  • Are you voting the way you do because in all honesty your just a hypocrite? 
  • You want them to change the things you don't like and to leave the ones you do like, but are not willing to tell them which is which?
  • If you vote for the wrong guy, how will you know until after the election?
    So in this next election try something new. Close your eyes, push a button and hope for the best. You're still going to bitch about it no matter who gets voted into office.
