A Vaccine For The Voting Contagion

By Chris Rossini

Tis the season when politicians "will literally say anything".

Voting propaganda is running full-steam.

Mike Huckabee gives a fine example:

There is a vaccine to this communicable disease called voting, and Lew Rockwell provides the proper thoughts to rid yourself of the urge:
As to why I belong to the largest party in America, the Non-Voters, here are a few reasons:

1) It is important to our rulers that I vote for Creep R over Creep D, or Creep D over Creep R, to show my allegiance to the biggest, richest, most destructive State on the planet.

2) Voting is the sacrament of the State religion. I’m a non-communicant.

3) Voting is a pain in the neck. I’d have to park at some ugly government facility, wait in line, and be ordered around by functionaries.

4) Voting means I believe in political democracy, that is, that the majority has the right to rule the minority.

5) My vote would not count, unless the election were decided by one vote.

Folks, not voting is your right. Exercise it while you still can.
P.J. O'Rourke summed it up perfectly:
"Don't vote. It just encourages the bastards."
