An even better solution

Reader comment on item: What's a Conservative to Do? Vote for Pence

Submitted by Daniel Rubio (Mexico), Oct 22, 2016 at 11:40

You go to a restaurant. You're offered a choice between the day specialties: Rotten fish or maggot-infested steak. Which one do you choose? Neither. You stand up and leave.

So is with the current elections. There's a much better solution. If the vast majority of voters abstain (not that they don't show up to vote, but that the annul their vote at the booths) they'll be sending a clear signal to the political establishment: That the two pathetic main alternatives the system could provide for the election are nobody's choice, that Americans don't deserve neither Clinton nor Trump and that a new election with new candidates should be set in motion. The only down side is that that piece of filth 0bama would stay an additional time as president.

What about the Senate, House, governorships, state legislatures, majors, etc.?
