Foot voting is the ability of people to "vote with their feet" by leaving situations they do not like or going to situations they believe to be more beneficial. It has been described as "a tool for enhancing political freedom: the ability of the people to choose the political regime under which they wish to live".
Communist leader Vladimir Lenin commented, "They voted with their feet," regarding Russian soldiers deserting the army of the Tsar. The concept has also been associated[clarification needed] with Charles Tiebout and Ronald Reagan.[not in citation given]
