A quick thought on voting

I saw this article this morning on how "your vote doesn't count", and also heard her talk on C-Span about it.

I really, truly despise arguments like this. It's like listening to a die-hard socialist argue against the market. Can you imagine someone making an argument like this about the market? Your choices can't possibly affect prices. OK. Do we just deny the information aggregating properties of hundreds of millions of (individually insignificant) people making choices in a market because "your purchase doesn't count"? Of course not.

This hipster/chic non-chalance about democracy is not a good thing, in my opinion.
