Well Hey Prole! I don't blame You for your feelings on the scam that is to Vote! I am with George Carlin, (May He R.I.P.), where He said, "You can't blame ME for (enter politicians name here), Cause I don't Vote!"
The voting system, in My opinion is just a system to make us believe We have a choice. Or that if We vote, We can make a difference. I don't think so!
I too love this country, most of the time, but do not buy into that scam of voting.
The two party system is another broken element of society. It is there, IMO, to further divide us. I only follow, somewhat, whoever is in line with My beliefs and values.
So far none have really been able to be on that list. LOL!! R.P. was close! LOL!!

The only time I voted was a 4th(?) grade test run. I've had the flu every single presidential election since.

Yeah, I mean I get where you're coming from, FyreByrd, sort of.
Have you ever heard of Morton's Fork? My conundrum is sort of like that. Morton's Fork
Then there's the whole, you know, lesser of two evils thing.
So you know, I could have voted for Romney in 2012, who I had major issues with (something about him reminded me of Martin Sheen's character in The Dead Zone), or Obama (also deeply flawed). So if I had voted for, say, Vermin Supreme in 2012, then...I can complain about the govt. and it's totally cool? Or?

Political choice is an illusion and a crafty distraction and part of the control mechanism known as: The Hegelian Dialectic
I vote by adjusting the zeitgeist code with information input via quantum entangled photons.

There is no such thing as the lesser of two evils. There is only evil, in which I refuse to legitimatize by my participation.
