"I have solved this political dilemma in a very direct way: I don't vote.

On Election Day, I stay home.

I firmly believe that if you vote, you have no right to complain. Now, some people like to twist that around. They say, 'If you don't vote, you have no right to complain,' but where's the logic in that? If you vote, and you elect dishonest, incompetent politicians, and they get into office and screw everything up, you are responsible for what they have done. You voted them in. You caused the problem. You have no right to complain. I, on the other hand, who did not vote -- who did not even leave the house on Election Day -- am in no way responsible for that these politicians have done and have every right to complain about the mess that you created." –


George Carlin

I have not voted at any level of government elections for decades.
The simple reason is, if you do cast a vote, you are essentially encouraging the Bastards.
They are not worthy of a vote.
Trump and Biden are good examples
