We get these non-choices because we accept them. It’s not just that we vote for one of them on election day as the lesser of two evils. It’s worse: we spend the entire election season steeling ourselves for that vote, rationalizing our selection by imagining how awful it could be if the other guy wins, rather than imagining how good it could be if we had a real choice.
If you don’t like what the major parties offer, don’t fall into that trap. To be resigned to the process is to resign from it – so don’t do it. Don’t be passive, be vocal. Tell them you are unhappy. Tell them you want better.
