> I'm voting Libertarian. Don't blame me for what happens when people elect the unqualified and the scoundrels to office, I vote, just not for any of them.
That attitude is what gets us into this mess. Voting takes you as little as 5 minutes if your jurisdiction allows mail-in ballots, and not really much longer if you have to actually go to the polls. You think you can get a worthwhile government with that sort of minimal effort? No, you get exactly what you paid for -- someone else's very poor choice of elected officials.
If you have any confidence in your views about how the country should be run you have to find a candidate (or run yourself), advocate for him or her with everyone you know and enlist others to advocate with you. And then work on everyone you don't know too. That's a LOT of work. At least a full time job and then some. So choose among the electable candidates or field your own if you think someone you like have a shot. But don't just vote for someone you know will loose and blame the rest of us.
Democracy is ugly and messy and hard, but I haven't thought of a better solution (except pseudorand for emperor, of course, but how do I get you all to agree to that? ;).
