Some of you have heard my statements starting last Spring that I intend to vote for Thomas Jefferson Paine for President of the U.S. in November. My argument is that I refuse to support either Hillary or Donald, or any of the other "official" candidates, but that I do feel a duty to vote, at least in honor of those who have given the last full measure of devotion to protecting that privilege. Here is a short piece by Richard J. Maybury in his October 2016 Early Warning Report about that subject:
âž¥ About voting: Numerous odd experiences have convinced me that the universe really does contain something, or perhaps many somethings, that care about what each individual does, and react to it. The visible effects are known by several tags such as karma or, what goes around comes around, you reap what you sow, and poetic justice. All my life, people have been voting for the lesser of the two evils. This means they have been voting for evil, and that is exactly what we have been receiving. However, there is a bright side to voting, which is that your one ballot is a drop in the ocean and cannot possibly change anything. Therefore, you are completely free to vote your conscience, to cast your ballot for whatever you sincerely believe is good. I hope you will do that. View voting not as a public duty, but as a private one between you and the something. Write in someone. If you cannot think of anyone, write in yourself. But send your little drop-in-the-ocean message to the powers that be, both in DC and in the universe, that you are interested in good, and you refuse to participate in the lesser-of-the-two-evils hoax.â™¦
Enjoy exercising your privilege.
