At least 90 million Americans and possibly far more, several tens of millions more than will vote for either major party, will not vote on November 6. This is often wrongly described as voter apathy. But the fact is that around 75% of both voters and non-voters are have little or no faith in our election system; non-voters are simply more willing to act with consistency and integrity to heed their doubts and conscientious objections, while voters are more more habituated to give a pass to any authority, no matter how corrupt and evil, under "the lesser of two evils" mindset which has cumulatively made 1% controlled politics come now to the point of absolute evil. A large percentage, maybe most, of Occupiers will not be voting.. Although they have been pressured to vote by all kinds of tactics to induce their compliance, scores of millions of women who understand they will not be represented, will not vote, and the same is true of young voters female and male, both. Those who are already hurt and expecting to be hurt by our 1% failing economic system will not vote. Environmentalists who understand that both parties would bring irrevocable global warming and famine from genetically engineered crops will not vote. Those who understand that the corporate media has kept most voters so ill-informed that they do not understand what they are doing when they vote in this broken system, will not vote. Many people will be carrying signs and burning voter registration cards to make the boycott more visible. If you are still thinking of voting, understand that whoever you vote for will in fact lose, if any logic is applied, because the largest number of people will not vote for the "winner" in this broken system, and you will lose because you will have let yourself become a pawn in the game of self-and-other destructive sociopaths who are quite willing to sacrifice a Planet, as long as they can be "in power", "in control" and "on top". Whoever the titular "winners", they would be a corporately-controlled 1% dictatorship that attempts to rule without the consent, let alone the informed consent, of the governed, let alone Nature or Love. Heed Nature's warning via Hurricane Sandy, which was just a taste of what's coming if the same 1% controls our energy and environmental policies: This Time, with so much at stake: Don't Vote in 2012, turn off the TV, and demand an election system that will represent all the people starting 2013, instead.

Not researching all candidates is voter apathy.

Not voting in the primaries is voter apathy.

Not voting for a single person on an entire ballot is voter apathy.

There will be legislation to vote on as well as local government.

VOTE.

There's a reason corporations, banks, and the 1% spend so much on candidates.... we have the power of the vote.

I try to do paragraphs and it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?

Hit your enter key twice. So, you will have two lines of space instead of what we would normally use.

I don't mind - does not sound like fit reading material anyway - the less who want to read it the better. opt-out - sheesh.

Well, some day one of these people is going to say something that is great. I'm not going to hear the message because it isn't worth my time to have to fight their structure.

Ask yourselves why MLK and Ghandi risked their lives for the right to vote.
