Voting doesn't matter.
It is propagated by those focused on the big picture as opposed to everyday life. You know: if no politician will dismantle capitalism, how can voting make a difference?
Well, we are in a cultural war. The rich do spend millions on elections, and they wouldn't spend money on something the outcome of which doesn't matter.
separation of church and state
to keep public education or to privatize it and turn it over to religious groups
Supreme Court appointments, upon which many an issue hinges, including pleas by those on death row.
Yup, if I were one of the 1%, I'd invest in propagating the meme that elections do not matter.

of course elections matter, but there is a voting you do every day with how you live and what is actually in practice important to you. that's where the incentives that motivate even the 1% come from.
the idea that you can trust an economic interest better then you can trust a government serves that same 1% too. not that you can trust governments, but, its not like economic interests aren't a hundred times worse either.
