    Does voting actually matter or do secret societies run the show? illuminati, free masons etc.

    Different you tube series such as "the extermination - a new world order" suggest that secret societies run the world. Tv shoes such as the conspiracy theory with jesse ventura and the whole bohemian grove idea provide solid facts or proof. But is it real or just crazy talk.

    Yes, voting intelligently matters! It is so important that American voter get educated now more than ever before!

    I generally don't take grand conspiracy theories very seriously simply because too many things have to be airtight in order for them to work. With that said, voting really does matter because even if secret societies are propping up various politicians, it won't matter if the majority of people vote against them.

    We most definitely are under some kind of martial law involving the use of non-lethal weapons and subliminal mind-control.  I know this by repeated limit-testing on my part.  We can be:  seen, heard, even have our actions predicted to instill mental-ruts to keep us in line.  There now exist Laws against unrestrained displays of emotion.  People have been reduced to emotionless, obediant marrionettes being pulled by electromagnetic strings.  You must be as The Bible says:  "Cautious as serpents, harmless as doves" to escape mental-traps laid out for us by a malevolant collective-consciousness.  We cannot see this repression, but we can damned sure FEEL it.  Just check out that rhythmic, high-pitched ear-ringing that usually coincides with feelings of discomfort.  Check out my page to combat this coercive "population-control"".  Good Luck!

    It matters because without the right to vote we do not have a "free" society or the perception of freedom.  However the reality is that the people running the show are the people who control the money supply.  Lose the right to vote and there is zero hope that this can ever be changed.

    Our political parties run most of the show, though I would not call them secret societies. It matters for whom you vote, though it doesn't matter as much as everyone thinks. Typically both candidates and parties receive campaign contributions from the same big-money sources. As a result, Washington will always show favoritism to Wall Street, big oil, and defense spending. Aside from those issues, it is a mixed bag of who gets money from where. But American politics has almost always been driven by corruption.That is nothing new. That being said, if you can sift through the campaign rhetoric, you will usually find one or two honest goals a candidate has in mind upon taking office. These goals generally lean toward either more conservative propositions or more progresive ones.

    political voting matters a lot the reasons are not far fetched the Illuminati and free masons are just a sector of the society, they influence political processes but not to the extent they blow their trumpets

    The world is too big for anyone to control it.  But businessmen to rely on their contacts and big business is very powerful in directing the way government moves.  And the very wealthy do have influence beyond the common person.

    New World Order is a metaphor for change... and it has been happening continuously throughout history.  The world changes rapidly... for instance the Cold War is over but replaced with "a new world order" now.  And a "new world order" will happen continuously in the future.  Get used to it.

    World government is going to happen some day.  It will be the only way to save the world but it may already be too late.  The world is doomed by following its present path.  When mass starvation starts... and soon, things will definitely change.

    Global climate change is about to create a new world order and it isn't going to be nice.  We may end up losing about half the worlds population within a ten year period.

    At local level it is worth while voting. Only the people elected make the major decision, although officers do give advice

    Those who join many of these secret or now not so secret societies think they will take advantage of the rest of society just as the masons did because they pocess special knowledge.How often have you heard that knowledge is power ? Knowledge is power! That's why so much knowledge has been hard to get outside your personal   souroundings.Schools ,Churches,businesses,and even governments all have knowledge that they would rather keep to themselves for fear of what might happen to the power they have over others by keeping it to themselves.Corporations keep secrets too! Coca -Cola as well as other Corporations keep trade secrets that can give them an advantage over their competitors.The same is true in Schools,Churches,and governments. Ultimately competition between the many competitors breeds  unscruplious actions,including violence.and war.

    Sharing knowledge is only beneficial when it's voluntary and not forced

    Monopolies can only benefit everyone involved if it's understood that all benefit ,and not just those who manage ,but also those who do the labor required.

    That's no secret!

    I don't necessarily subscribe to the principle that "there is a commie behind every tree" yet I also am not naive enough to believe that everything will be fine just because we live in the USA.   There are those on the left who desire greatly to make America a socialist state and they continually attempt that effort without giving up. Vigilance is all that deters them in being successful  When America stops being vigilant for the road markers of democracy...we are totally screwed as a society.  We must believe that we still have a country which functions on the founding principles.  We cannot ever secede the argument that this country was founded on Christian principles and functions as such.  Finally, we can never give up hope on mankind...somewhere here in our masses are people with the skills, the qualities, the values, and the traits to uphold America as it was intended and to drive it to where it needs to be...and it won't be Al Gore or Hilary Clinton when you wake up from the dream.

    i don't think secret societies run the show. the wealthy run the show and it's obvious. you couldn't have a secret society doing it because the secret would get out no matter what.

    Voting does matter. It's how the majority picks who they want to lead, and the leader is expected to be accountable to the people and do a good job. Fight for their interests and all that...

    This rarely happens though or at least is hampered by a lot of political factors. There are groups who can manipulate how the country is run but I hardly think that they're as secretive as the illuminati. Big social groups who hold lots of votes for example  (religious typically) can "influence" a states policy's because politicians need their vote/support. For some of these groups, sometimes the leader can influence the groups opinion so you have a situation where one man or a group of men can pressure the government enough to change its polices.

    So my simple answer is there are groups who have a lot of influence but I don't think there is one secret group who has been directing the growth of society from the shadows. It's all politics.

    If you live in a country where the elected government has no control over the money supply (ie a country whose national currency is actually an iou issued by a private bank): such as the UK and US, then voting doesn't really alter much of anything.

    I vote but I don't think it matters because I believe the government will do exactly what it wants to do and they write their own policies to allow this to happen.

    Ok, I'll say it in one word, but after I do, don't tag me as a conspiracy theory nut job.  I simply take it all in, analyze what I’ve heard or read, and then share it with others so they can make up their own minds.  Here it is… Bilderberg.
    If this word is new to you, then you’ve got lots to catch up on.

    It is indeed very difficult to accept an accusation, or blame ... though, much easier, to accuse, and blame ...

    The sharp cookies worldwide, meaning, the Politicians ... Communists, Democrats, Religious ... however, are more than willing, to take any misunderstanding's credit, or the blame, if it suits their plans.

    Anyway, what we could not relate or understand in days bygone ... was posted on the Account of Magicians and Cults ... it is now Secret Orders, and Looney bin Societies ... Lately, Harry Potter and the Aliens are being accredited or blamed for the world's problems.

    Thus, whatever is not understood, is considered a guarded Secret ... of Societies or some Race ... mostly  believed as this or that conspiracies.

    Hasan Sabbah, the old man of Alamut mountains, was the Father of all this Secret Societies and related nonsense ... he practiced it with the help of Hashish ... his system was adopted by the Illuminati, and later, the Freemasons ...

    Now in terms of equalency, we have the FBI, Interpol, and the Theoretical Men in Black ... and so on.

    Politicians, therefore, now base their claims in the Majority of Numbers Rule ... they are the sharp Cookies of this New Age ... and although, they do not run the world, and its affairs as they would like to have thing going ... they are quick to take any credit ... or blame ... by stating the obvious ...

    Things, we should understand, get too complicated beyond a certain point in Material Affairs for anyone to manage, or organize on a universal scale ...

    Supposing, someone takes credit for the Sun's Eclipse, and some idiots believing in such a claim .... though its just a matter of Mathematics and coincidence... which the sharp one takesw the credit or the blame for.

    Modern Science with the help of Technology, is now trying to establish a System, that is supposed to help it govern the world under a New World Order. Although, there is no such thing as Science's Propounded Strings Theory, that can help establish such an Order ...

    The Strings idea is an attempt to Claim Control of the Factors that influence human Destiny ... the smart ones, as usual, are trying to claim it all, of their doing .... in a single mathematical go.

    I am not really sure on the power that "Secret Societies" have on the government of the world, but, it does make for interesting stories! But, as far as the Free Masons go I know that they have had a big influence on the shaping of our country from the forming of the Constitution to at least through the mid 1900's.

    NO, voting is an absolute scam to keep the masses deluded that they run the show.  The Illuminati and NWO are very real.  You need only do some online research to be overwhelmed by the evidence.  It's only crazy talk to the brainwashed masses, who I don't blame for thinking so.  But do some research for yourselves and stop taking what the government spews out as truth.  It's not the truth!  ALL of the US presidents are related.  What does that tell you?
