Don't vote it just encourages the bastards!

Read up on many opinions here

most of the people below are saying consent of the governed must be withdrawn.

I Rocked the Ron Paul thing pretty hard in 2008 and I maxed out my donations to him last year. But I learned after 08 the system is rigged in many ways...if you think you can change by electing someone you are delusional.

Anyways I didn't listen to a ton of Ron's speeches this year because they are pretty much the same as the last time around. But the last time around Ron would occasionally say "heck we even get some anarchists at our rallies" Well I went to a few Ron Paul rallies and met some anarchists. Its about opening your mind to the possibility that this political system just may not be the best way for humans to coexist. We shouldn't be fighting over this stupid shit all the time. We should be voluntarily cooperating with each other and not dependent on a central government for any help.

The government schools long ago gave up teaching anything significant about the founding fathers, the Constitution, and the philosophy of limited government — other than to trash and demean them. In a democracy it is not in the state's best interest to educate its own citizens about the virtues of limited government, and ours doesn't. And it certainly will never make any attempt to do so with the hordes of new immigrants it hopes to attract (and register to vote). Belief in the Constitution is essentially a lost cause.

That's why it is unpatriotic to vote. Being patriotic in America means being devoted to the Constitution, if not the natural rights philosophy that motivated much of it. Since neither of the major political parties has any interest whatsoever in enforcing the constitutional limitations on the state, they are all traitors to the Constitution (with one lone exception, Congressman Ron Paul).

Anyone who supports them is also behaving in a traitorous manner. That is, anyone who votes for any of them. Voting only allows these traitors to the Constitution to proclaim that "the people have spoken" and "I am your president," or congressman, senator, governor, or whatever. Their legitimacy rests solely on their ability to make this claim.
