Wonders never cease...

I just spoke to a Texas family member who is a very staunch Republican.

He just told me he sent in his absentee ballot- and voted straight Libertarian.

He was tired of voting for Republicans who are indistinguishable from the Democrats- and that's really all there are.  He wanted to send a message to the Republicans.

Now, I'm ambivalent about v*ting (as Claire Wolfe would write it)- I don't think it's the right thing for me to do right now.  But for you?  You'll have to decide that for yourself.  But it still tickled me to hear how he voted.

So, how about it, disenfranchised Republicans and Democrats?  You can overcome the inertia.  Voting for your parties' nominees is a wasted vote.  It tells them that you like what they've been doing and how they've been doing it.  For decades.

Do something different this one time and see if you don't feel better about yourself.  Either vote for someone in a third party (and if you do that you might as well vote for the guys and gals who are in the third LARGEST party), or refuse to play a completely rigged game at all.

The choice is yours... choose wisely.
