If you think voting in a presidential election will help you, then just review the last 240 years. However, that suggestion brings us to the crux of the problem. Most of you will not review the historical record. We are a slothful generation of consumers, and so we will leave it up to the politicians, and hope that they "get it right" this time. And the time we are thinking of is tomorrow, and I have heard that it will never come. We will all be dead and rotting in our graves long before 2096. Perhaps we will even have turned to dust! And all around our ashes and bones, this evil empire will continue to grow, and to flourish.

Our progeny will toil even greater beneath this yoke of oppression. They will continue to toil because today, collectively, we are a bunch of cowards! Cowards on our way to the shopping mall. Cowards on our way to the beach, where we will spend hours being titillated by women in thongs, and even more hours at home, turning Japanese after serching the internet for the perfect home movie; something special to accompany our grand perfomance.

Come on! Come on! Come On!

Come On! Come On! Come On!

Come On ! Come On! Come On !

Come On! Come On ! Come On!

Come On! Now Touch Me. Babe!

I have seen through you all. Oh! You are so big! Oh! You are so tough. I see you got your wife beater on; smokin' that Lucky Strike. Yeah, you really tuff.

Your the wanderer ... I say the wanderer ...

you go

around,

around,

around,

around,

around!

But what's worse than anything else, I am a coward too! If I wasn't a coward I would have punched the clock a long time ago. I don't hate myself for loving you. That's what Joan Jett said, and I don't even like Joan Jett! I hate myself for being the winner. I out ran millions of slimy, writhing, competitors in order to be here. I won the prize that was waiting there beneath the crown of creation. And for what? To be here with you? To watch you go and vote in a presidential election: a vote that won't mean a damn thing. It never has, and it never will. When John Kennedy tried to dump the Fed, they took him out in Dallas! But I have heard your favorite excuse, so don't say it, don't even think it. Let me say it for you: "We need to vote for the lesser evil".

"I" am the lesser evil. There is no politician alive or dead who will ever be as honest with you as I have been today. Not in a million years! A politican, by definition, is a liar. Have you heard of Benghazi? Have you heard of Vince Foster? Have you heard of Waco Texas? And no, I have no love for a Republican either. Because while Donald Trump is building a prison wall around us, 50,000 veterans will still be sleeping on the streets of America. The whole world has been perverted. What's up is down, and what should be going under is going over. It's going over big! Who played a pawn, and who made a joke among world leaders? Who said "We came, We saw,He died!" Who made us all accessories to murder: in Palestine, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and in Syria?

The Guess Who
The Guess Who

Step away American Woman! It is the only thing left to do. We must all step away from the spin doctors, but not the spinsters; they had nothing to do with it. Today I have come with a revelation. Did I say I Love You yet? How often have we been told about the power of the vote? THE POWER OF THE VOTE !!! But it is just another filthy lie! And it is the best way to perpetuate an evil system. Once again , the truth has been perverted. The greatest political power that we possess is not the Power to Vote, but it is in the Power "Not" To Vote! If we stop participating in a corrupt political system, the world will not fall into chaos. That is only another fiction. It is the system itself which has created chaos throughout the world! If we stop participating in the system, it is only the system that will come tumbling down; not down around our heads, but down around our feet, to be trampled underfoot! Like the ancient Greek gods, it is our "belief" in this evil system that gives it the power. When we stop believing, the system can only wither and die. What is: A Weapon of Prayer?

Please, study the historical record. The colonialist powers on this continent have been at war since they began, and so the killing continues. Finally, I will address a related issue. There has been much talk about the United States being a Christian nation. But I know what a Christian is, and 99.9% of the United States population ain't. A Christian is supposed to be a follower of Jesus. Can anyone who has studied the teachings, truly believe that Jesus would have spent the last 500 years killing people and stealing their wealth? Both here and abroad? Would a Christian be concerrned about their right to bear arms, when because of American tax dollars, thousands of children in the Middle East don't even have the right to live? Furthermore, amidst all of this chaos and misery, would Jesus pray for a 65 million dollar jet? The well known televangelist Creflo Dollar, a so-called "Man of God", seems to think so. Go ahead and cast your vote! But I don't have to give you a kind word, a friendly smile, or hide behind a second face. I am not your friend. I am not a politician. I Am the Antibody. I Am The Lesser Evil.

      Whether that is your intention or not, I would be surprised to find that a writer could pay his bills, have money for recreation, and send his kids to college; solely on his income from Hubpages. If you have figured out how to do this, please Eric, enlighten me. Concerning your question: Absolutely! You have had an impact on me and many others. Even many of the misguided conservatives who write for Hubpages are having a positive impact. This can be understood as follows: A man dying of thirst could care less about the politics of the man who is bringing a bucket of water.

      I advocate non-participation. Even an honest politician (if there is such a thing) is not going to make a significant difference in a corrupt system. Any system based on money will ultimately fail.

      I advocate an anarchistic society bound only by solidarity of purpose. That purpose being the self-realization of the individual toward the greater good of the whole. Sovereign communities, connected to sovereign states, centered more around local economies, as opposed to a global economy; with no centralized government.

      You and many others are already practicing a form of anarchy here on Hubpages. You exhibit here a solidarity of purpose. You write your articles, essay's, and poems to entertain, inform, and enlighten the world. I do not need to tell you how much time and effort you have put into producing content. And much of what any of you write is based on years of experience. How much is that really worth? Is anyone really being compensated in full for what they are actually providing here? The answer is no! But in spite of this lack of a monetary incentive, the writers on Hubpages continue to produce quality content. This clearly proves the point I am making here:

      "Community action, and the quality and quantity of production is not solely dependent upon the potential for profit." What you see here on Hubpages is proof of what can also be achieved in the "real" world.

      This is a good piece. Let me devil's advocate you.

      So our politicians and our lack of involvement make government suck but you advocate all of us acting in a utopian socialistic manner?
