R.C. Hoiles (1878-1970) Editor/Publisher of the Orange County Register

“It has been asserted that only if you vote do you have any right to complain about what transpires on the political scene….   We would point out, on the other hand, that only by refusing to participate in the game do you retain the clear right to protest what the game produces.  For when you vote, you have not only participated in the system but, in addition, have tacitly agreed beforehand to accept and abide by whatever the system brings forth.  The voter complaining about the outcome of an election is standing on untenable ground.  Philosophically, morally and factually, only the non-voter is in a logical position to protest….   When you participate in the political con game, you sanction it.”

 — R.C. Hoiles (1878-1970) Editor/Publisher of the Orange County Register, April 17, 1971
