I have very little tolerance, as you are the problem. However, it's never too late to change your attitude and become part of the solution.
No doubt that I am on opposites side of the fence from JK and Pipeline, but do respect them nonetheless. My hat's off to you gentlemen.
It is my right to not vote. Consider it a consistent vote for None of the Above. If Monty Brewster didn't convince you, then how about George Carlin:
I made my None of the Above decision before I saw Carlin's piece, but being in his company convinces me that the decision was correct. You'll notice that I don't really complain much about specific politicians. I complain about the system, or more often, I try to envision better ways to do things.
If George Carlin doesn't convince you, then how about Thomas Jefferson:
The founding fathers had grown weary of their government and made the decision to not participate any longer. I'd be more impressed if they hadn't replaced the existing oligarchy with another oligarchy, but I suppose they were trying to steer as far from monarchy as they could.
Representative forms of government aren't designed to solve problems. They are designed to preserve themselves. Our federal government is a much more poignant example than the town council of Flower Mound, Texas. Obama's epic faceplant should be the only evidence anyone needs to know our government doesn't work.
