Opt-out thread: from Election Day to Defection Day..

Hi there, Richard here from Amsterdam, Holland.

Election Day. The one-party State on parade, the show is on for "them, the sheeple," still willing to participate in this thuggish charade called "democracy". That's a pity.
I hope for two things to happen:

1) More people than ever excercising their right not to vote, i.e. to withdraw consent from the system*. I hope some use their unwasted time to do something constructive and worthwhile, like fixing a bike, tell a good joke, or just exchange some random talk with their neighbor.

2) An Obama win. Not because he's any less evil than Romney, but because the inevitable economic collapse would be less easy to blame on "capitalism" (in the genuine, near-forgotten free market sense of the term). Of course the Austrian-savy DP's already know that Romney is as much a capitalist as was Benzino Gassolini, but the lamestream media lackeys of the State will no doubt push that narrative like mad.

Q: I'm looking for some catchy rephrasing of "Election Day", to express the way to go, to "opt out", so to speak. Something like "Defection Day" comes to mind..

Any further suggestions would be welcome ;-)

R3V ON!!

* By "system", I don't mean the facade or circus, i.e. the political system on display today, but rather the underlying 100 years old system of unlimited government, embodied by the predatory State, fuelled (or should I say, Fed) by monetary fascism.

We're on the right track ;-)

Great pic, b.t.w.

Being from Holland, I wonder

Being from Holland, I wonder if you know some of the other meanings of defection.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Meanings of "defection" to a Dutchy..

Well, I think I do, but perhaps you're willing/able to supply them yourself?

Meanwhile, I'd gladly trade my imperfect "Defection" (apart from the rather neat phonetic similarity to "Election") for a better one. If you present a viable alternative, I'll be happy to switch sides at the drop of a hat ;-)

If voting solved anything...

they wouldn't let us do it.

H. L. Mencken or Mark Twain..

Any one of the two will do just fine.

Here's Alexis de Tocqueville's assessment of / "Democracy in America".

And happy Secession Day! ;-)

With freedom ranking high among the goods stolen..

Yet precious few seem genuinely interested in recovering it ;-)
