For Freedom, Vote for "None Of The Above"

If voters were to examine their Congressional representatives (Representatives & Senators) voting records, they would find that a majority of these politicians favor (1) increasingly repressive drug laws, (2) increasingly repressive police state powers, and (3) increasingly belligerent to nations Israel fears. Surprise, surprise.

Most |D| and |R| politicians have been bought-off by the Globalists. The time of the USA as a constitutional republic under the rule of law is drawing to a close. The age of empire is upon us, and there will be very little difference between subjects as citizens of the empire versus subjects as neocolonial client states -- both basically victims.

Why would any patriotic citizen vote against the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the rule of law by voting for politicians that routinely break their oaths of office?

Is the stability of a government any more assured when it is a kleptocratic corporate socialist state, rather than of a constitutional republic that has had some ups & downs over 200+ years?

If the Powers That Be control which politicians |D| & |R| run against one another, with the PTB as the only winners, why don't more voters make use of Absentee Ballots and using the "Write-In" option for voting?

Does any voter really believe that "Not Voting" sends the message to the Powers That Be that it's a protest against the PTB, instead of just more "voter apathy" and a silent tacit approval of the policies of the PTB?
