Voting For No One

The results of the 2014 midterm elections ran heavily in favor of the GOP.

Harvard University estimated that a little over 21.3% of the registered electorate voted on Tuesday, meaning that the control of the Senate hinged on 1-2% of the vote. Millions stayed away from the ballot. The young, the old, blacks, conservatives, radicals, single women et al refrained from making their mark at the polling booth.

I work up early and cast my vote for the Green Party.

I wished that "None of the Above' was a choice, so that I didn't have to vote Democratic.

Obviously 80% of the voters made that choice by abstaining participation in the election.

Thus stands the state of democracy in the USA.

No one votes, because voting doesn't change anything.

The rich always win in the end.

But the pigs don't look like movie stars.

They just look like pigs.

Same as everyone else.
