My position is now 44 years tenderized. Let me make it simple. When you are faced with the choice between a steaming pile of elephant dung and a old, moldering flop of donkey shit. Think carefully and accept the obvious truth that this is not a dualistic world, you have other choices. One of which is to reject the foul, fraudulent institutions of the mainstream political parties and choose to vote for someone who actually represents the values you believe in.
Don't stay home but since NONE OF THE ABOVE is not a choice, pick any third party. Let them know you're mad as hell and you're not going to take it anymore.
