HERE'S SOME FOLKS WHO WANT YOU TO WASTE YOUR VOTE in the presidential election this November.
Debra here. This site points out what most of us already know: a huge majority of people don't vote, and it's not because of apathy. It's because there's no real choice.

Neither party has done anything to repair the most damaging policies currently threatening our Republic. Many (if not most) laws have been put in place to favor particular groups at the disadvantage of other groups, or everyone else, or merely to allow the sitting President and Congress to 'manage' the economy in someone's favor (and it's usually their own).

If you want to change that, it's time to vote 'else.'
