The Voting Ritual

Butler Shaffer at - Why Mr. Shaffer has not voted for over four decades, and why you should join he and I in shunning the election on November 7 and every subsequent election. [lew]

This November 7th will also be the date of the forty-second anniversary of my non-participation in the voting process. I can assert that I have been "clean" from the politicoholic addiction for over four decades. I have no intentions of ever again sneaking into an enclosed booth -- that serves the same purpose of hiding one's embarrassing habits as those found in an adult bookstore -- to conspire with a multitude of others to despoil you of your liberties or property.


As others go forth to participate in this silliest of all rituals -- designed to convince members of the boobeoisie that they are really running the political zoo -- I shall be engaged in more productive pursuits, such as picking the lint out of my navel.
