That was exactly

what many RP supporters had decided to do after their defeat in 1988 and 2008. No wonder we did not have the numbers this year.

Hurt feelings (anger, resentment, distrust, hopelessness, etc) take over rational thinking.

WAY OUT: One should understand that it is not a minority of bankers or politicians who rules us - it is tyrannical majority of PUBLIC OPINION rooted in morality of sacrifice shared by both progressive left and religious right. (Since RP and Rothbard libertarians do not explore this, I suggest to read Ayn Rand books to extend your understanding.) Voting is the same as influencing public opinion. We rattle the cage, people notice.
