Is even the thought of voting for a third party candidate gives you the shivering shits because, by your very act of participation, you are encouraging and strengthening the oligarchical fascist corporatist megalopoly still-not lesser-enough-of-two-evils impure government-sponsored quadrennial orgy of faux self-determination designed to keep people of good and tender conscience trapped on a Möbius strip of self-delusion?
Is that what is keeping you up at night, Bunky?
Well some pretty darn clever people have figured a way out of this rat race and you don’t even have to move to Galt’s Gulch to enjoy the benefits of living outside of the daily grind of a reality that is fucked up and bullshit.
I give you:
“They need us to believe in their illusion of choice, so that we feel empowered and want to participate. They need us to believe in their illusion of differences, so that we feel represented. They need us to believe in their illusion of fears, so that we dread consequences for not validating them.
They need us more than we need them. Dismiss their illusions and believe in yourself. Refuse them your vote.” ~ Cody Kilgore, 2012

Whereas both major political parties have sold out to the Wall Street banks and multinational corporations with no allegiance to the Nation or the people,
Whereas third parties have no possibility of winning the Presidential election due to corporate control over the electoral process and the media,
Whereas three decades of solid efforts to reform the electoral process have been subverted by the corporate state,
Whereas participation in the electoral process lends legitimacy to a system that has lost its legitimacy,
We hereby refuse to vote in the 2012 Presidential election.
Eh. Kind of wordy. Have you got a Powerpoint?
