Mock the Vote

Use your hour off from work to read this piece by the Mises Institute's David Heleniak. After detailing the history of democracy, Heleniak takes the words right out of my mouth:
Wise up, America. There's nothing special about 50% plus one. Truth and justice cannot be determined by a show of hands. We are not the government. Voting is not a sacrament. And as it stands today, when we're only given a choice between two Establishment-approved candidates, voting is a joke.
Of course, this article will not take up the whole hour. So stop by Ben and Jerry's for some free ice cream as well.
