Remember, remember, the fifth of November,
Gunpowder, treason, and plot.
Happy Guy Fawkes Day, everyone.
If you're not sure of what I'm talking about, it's a piece of history-- and made wonderfully relevant in the movie (and graphic novel) V for Vendetta.
Tomorrow we have a chance to pick which plutocrat will be in charge of our emergency services and economy for the next four years.
One guy says we're on our own when disaster hits-- we saw that recently-- and the other guy reaches out a hand to help and make things better.
Or you can vote for someone else if you don't like either of them. I'm independent, belonging to neither party (gang).
People have a decided aversion to voting independently of the two gangs, and I'm really at a loss to explain why. They say it doesn't count. It sure does count when you tell them neither of their choices are your choice. Vote for the Libertarian, Green, Independent, or other alternative candidate and show them their agenda isn't for you. It's not throwing your vote away to tell them NO!
If you'd like to vote today, I'm asking for your quick help, please-- as a finalist in the contest
