According to the United States Election Project, nearly half of eligible voters (46.9 percent of approximately 231,556,622 eligible voters) did not vote in the 2016 election, Nov 10, 2016.

Think on this ………. why?

You see the corporate power structure, you know, the big banks, the military industrial security complex, the fossil fuel industries select the establishment candidates by simply buying them. Very cost effective for them due to the huge returns they receive per money spent.

From there these purchased candidates are selected by the different parties at their conventions mostly funded by these same corporate conglomerates and with the wave of all that Red-White-and Blue are anointed by their parties to RUN FOR PRESIDENT.

And these pre-selected candidates go forth and “battle” for the position by flying around the nation attending rallies paid for by “their supporters” and proclaim just how much they will change about EVERYTHING!

At the same time the owned corporate media, owned by the same conglomerates, pitch their candidate under the guise of the “FREE PRESS” and the charade goes on.

Now in the 2016 election:

Hillary Clinton won 65,845,063 votes.

And Donald Trump won 62,980,160 votes.

Gary Johnson (Libertarian) won 4,488,931votes.

And Jill Stein (Green) won 1,457,050 votes.

Think on this ………….. why?

96,785,418 votes by eligible voters voted for NOBODY ………….

So if the world lived in a logical fashion NOBODY won the 2016 election by 30,940,355 votes! A fucking landslide!

Just how clear does it have to get? It was NOBODY who won by popular vote!


So when people say that bogus talking point, “if you didn’t vote, you have no right to complain” that is pure BULLSHIT!

You did vote ……… you voted NO!

BUT >>>>>>>> just in case YOU voted WRONG, the Founding Father’s created the Electoral College.

An invention that was created back in colonial times to be sure that the popular vote could be ADJUSTED so as to keep the population from getting REAL control of the vote. You know, YOU CAN’T TRUST THE PEOPLE. A Founding Father principle.

And the irony here from colonial literature as an argument for the Electoral College was, the founding fathers “. . . were afraid of direct election to the Presidency. They feared a tyrant could manipulate public opinion and come to power.  NOW HOW FUNNY IS THAT!

Think on this ……….. why?

Well the answer TO THE OVERALL WHY is really simple …. THERE WAS NO ONE TO VOTE FOR! That is why!

Now think of this this way. Say there are two brands of crackers on the supermarket shelf and both brands are stale ……. which one would you buy to eat?


And don’t forget that we are all equal in America so when they offered us a Black Cracker he was just as stale because he had been taught the white cracker jig!


And even the gender card was played in 2016 but still a white stale cracker but with breasts!

So as 2020 approaches you’ll see the circus and you’ll see the clowns.

And as of this moment the Republican’ts will stick with the Orange BozoBoy and the Democraps have Dead-Man-Walking-Biden as their savior bringing MORALS back to our nation which NEVER EVER had them in the first place!

The only question Tubularsock has with this choice ………. Just how many NO votes will be cast this time around?

    When there’s nothing to vote for… would I go to a restaurant that knowingly serves nothing but bad food; that takes my money after treating me like shit and mocks me by publicizing how much they are robbing me each time I patronize their place? I’d like to think I’m somewhat smart enough to realize that’s a dumb thing to do. We know politicians lie, connive, and take bribes to keep their positions while squandering tax payers’ money on shit that only makes the rich, richer, so why support any of them as they play their system? These aren’t exactly rhetorical questions, are they! Boycott elections, boycott wars, boycott the rich. Enough boycotts and maybe the guillotines will show up.

      Tubularsock is with you on this Sha’Tara! Tubularsock figures that the ONLY WAY change will take place in this society is a series of organized BOYCOTTS of different products until that corporation feels the heat.

      Change by MASSIVE Boycotts ……. when they start to lose money they’ll listen.

      Profit Loss = Social Change ……….. it’s the only way because it is the ONLY thing they care about!

      Organize Today!

    Yes!!!!! Yes!!!!!! Yes!!!!

    This is what I was saying, Tube! I knew you got it! I just knew it!

    This every four year spectacle is the farce of all farces! It doesn’t matter who wins, since the ‘winner’ will be owned and operated by the fascists in charge, in power.

    Trump is a fuckhead, a dumbass business fuck, as all business types are. But he is only doing what his pig bosses are instructing him to do, just as they would have instructed Bill’s lame-ass bitch:

    “If voting made any difference they wouldn’t let us do it.”

    ― Mark Twain

    Great post, Tube!

        What? It’s not “Merry Cans”? Anyway, it’s a good start but the speech will need a bit of fleshing out with alternate facts and such truths… Kellyann should be available anytime now, grab her before she ends up in that orange jump suit! All the best on the “No Vote means No Vote!” campaign trail.

        “Grab Her…”?! Would you care to rephrase, Sha’Tara?;-)

        As you and Tube both know, I have no political skills whatsoever. I can’t open my mouth without pissing somebody off. Nor am a good liar or criminal.

        So let me put it this way, to coin LBJ, I will not run, nor accept nomination, for the office of president of these here “shitholes” of ‘Merica!

        But thanks for the consideration!;-)

    Thanks sojourner, we are on the same page on this for sure. Tubularsock has always loved Mark Twain’s statement but in truth as we have seen “they” really don’t “let us do it”!

    Keep your powder dry!

      DrB. those were the days however today no one can get out of their iPhones to do much of anything.

      Tubularsock was at SF State attempting to get a degree from the streets which proved possible but disruptive for study time. “Hell No We Won’t Go”, and all that!


  7. Tube,
    You sound more like me every day. “None of the above” is my perennial vote. Now, if we can just get the electoral college to stay home . . . Passive resistance is so much easier and cheaper than fighting. Refusing to spin the money wheel will eventually bring this auto-cracy to a halt, or so I hope.
