Vote today!

November 06, 2012

I could go on and on about the flaws of the system itself, but short of a violent revolution (which I don’t advocate), the only way to improve the governance of the country, and the system itself, is to VOTE. Vote people in who will make positive changes for government and for the people. I’ve talked to many people who say “f*ck the system—I’m not voting,” but when you remove yourself from the democratic process by saying “f*ck the system,” you’re only ensuring that the system will be more f*cked.

This is no time for idealistic posturing on the sidelines. When you don’t vote, the people who benefit most from your apathy certainly didn’t want you to vote. If you’re as frustrated as I am, and you want to give a big F*CK YOU to someone who’d love to oppress you, VOTE—and give the middle finger to the Koch brothers, Karl Rove, Wall Street, and all the other powerful interests who want us to live in their world without any say for ourselves or any humanitarian regard for society’s least fortunate. Your vote matters.
