November 6th was a day like any other, or so it seemed. While most of the people were going about their daily lives: shopping, eating, sleeping, the minority were out conspiring. Conspiring to ruin and worsen their lives. The "Highers" had no conscious knowledge that the "Conspirators" were attempting to undermine the very fabric of their lives. The Conspirators had been planning for months and years before this day, and by day's end they will deal the Highers a crushing blow and cast a bleak shadow over their future.
Let's go back and see through the eyes of the Conspirators.

JK*: "Now onto the issue at hand: how do we oppress the Highers?"
GW*: "We don't control enough votes to cast our will on them"
BH*: "Let's convince everyone else that the Highers will murder them unless they relinquish more power to us."
GW*: "Yes that's a brilliant idea!"
BH*: "Thank you. Now to proceed with the plan."

Here it is, November 6th. The Highers are mostly unaware, that today is: Election Day. The one's who know it are often too lazy to go, or don't care, or think their vote is meaningless. The reason more and more laws keep coming down, passing with such low support, is because voter turn-out is soooo low that it is easy to swing a vote. Everyone must go out and vote, because the politicians work every day to make more laws and take away our freedoms, the only thing that stops them, is your vote.
